Camera samples and benchmark results from Meizu's latest monster – the MX4 Pro – surface

Meizu wastes no time – the company announced its new flagship, the MX4 Pro, just yesterday, and now – it is already available for purchase in China. A Hong Kong-based e-commerce side – ePrice – will also be selling the handset, come December the 6th, and it has already received at least one unit, which it used for some benchmarks, sample photos, and to picture the packaging.

The MX4 Pro is supposed to be the "beefed up" version of the company's MX4 flagship – the same phone, which dominated AnTuTu's results for Q3 2014 – and will add up to it with a larger 5.5" screen, fingerprint sensor, and a bump in the specs – the SoC will now be a Samsung-made Exynos 5430, the RAM – 3 GB, the GPU will be a Mali-T628, and the battery has been upgraded to the whooping 3,350 mAh.

Looking at the benchmark scores, it doesn't seem like the MX4 Pro will be the one to knock its predecessor off the pedestal, but they still show an adequate, powerful device. Meizu promises the new flagship to be the "gamer's best friend" and we can't wait to put that statement to the test.

The packaging is neat, with the bare essentials – charger, USB cable, and a pair of earphones, packed in a way that reminds us of you-know-who. If there are any other goodies in there - the picture, at least, does not reveal them. The MX4 Pro retails in China for a starting price of $410. There is no word on whether it will be available worldwide, though, it's a safe bet that it will be – through Meizu's online shop, at least. The phone will be available in 3 colors – grey, sand yellow, and white.

this is the weird part, MTK always seems to do good in Antutu but in real life, they are mediocre, mx4 had such a hype, the best performer in Antutu, but it's really not that good as it seems. This is proven here, how does a pro version have a lower result compared to the normal cheaper version, it just doesn't make any sense. Any way, the only benchmark I think is at least a bit credible is 3Dmark. Antutu sucks!!!!! And yeah, benchmark isn't everything, but it does allow us to know the basic performance of the device, even thou some companies cheated in the past.

"...how does a pro version have a lower result compared to the normal cheaper version..." QHD resolution?

not really, Antutu actually runs the graphics test on 720p and upscales it to fit the screen, so the different resolution should not vary the results. And how can my point be proven? Look at the G3 results and compare it to the Z3 or s5, there are similar, so, this proves my point even thou LG G3 has a QHD screen, it scores similar to the xperia Z3 and galaxy S5

You are wrong. The Antutu graphics tests specifically state the resolution during the test along the edge of the screen. It runs at device resolution.

Because antutu scores are not based on just 3D scores. The MTK has a excellent CPU.

Fast when all cores are working. Because there are 8 of them. 8 cores are only active in Android when the CPU is pegged using a heavy game or benchmark. Core for core, Mediatek can't even top 3 year old Krait.

This is expected running QHD resolution on a 5430 which wasn't used on Note 4(5430 runs great on alpha with 720p). Samsung isnt stupid to put a cpu that's not great for QHD, thats why you see 805 and exynos 5433 on note 4 with QHD. Silly Meizu. Never learns. Not to mention the pathetic back cover.
