Meizu is getting ready to launch their new flagship. After tons of leaks and rumors, Meizu has recently announced that they’ll hold na event in Beijing on September 23rd. Everyone assumed that they’ll announce a new flagship handset at the event, and teh company’s VP confirmed that earlier today. He confirmed that the new premium offering will be called Meizu Pro 5, and we are wondering how accurate previous AnTuTu listing was. The Meizu ‘NIUX’ popped up on AnTuTu a while back, sharing its specs with us. That device was powered by the Exynos 7420 and sported 3GB of RAM, and some rumors suggested that a 4GB variant of the device will also be available. Well, it seems those leaks were spot on, because another variant of the phone appeared on AnTuTu as well.
If you take a look at the images in the gallery down below, you’ll get to see both listings side by side. The Meizu ‘NIUX’, or Pro 5 as it will be called, will sport a 5.5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display (this was confirmed already), along with 3/4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The initial rumors claimed that the 4GB variant of the phone will ship with 64GB of internal storage, but it seems that won’t be the case. The Meizu Pro 5 will probably be fueled by Samsung’s Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core processor which has been used in all of Samsung’s flagships this year. The 21-megapixel camera will be located on the back of the Meizu Pro 5, and a 5-megapixel shooter will be available on the phone’s front side. Android 5.1 Lollipop will come pre-installed on the Pro 5 with Meizu’s Flyme UI installed on top of Google’s operating system.
That’s it as far as AnTuTu goes. You can expect this smartphone to be made out of metal, and a fingerprint scanner will quite probably be a part of the package as well. We’re only guessing here, but it makes sense. The device will offer 4G LTE connectivity, that’s a given, and as far as the design goes… well, we’ll see. If the leaked image from the other day is any indication, this smartphone will resemble Meizu’s previous offerings a whole lot.
