Meizu ME5 flagship specs leak, Exynos version scores 69,000 on AnTuTu

Meizu’s new ME5 specs leak, scores 69,000 on AnTuTu with Exynos 7420 inside
Meizu just announced that it has sold nearly 3 million phones last month, and no wonder, given the excellent crop it made this year, headed by the M2 Note we reviewed not long ago, but also by the M2 and the MX5. The company is not resting on its laurels, though, and pushed further with a brand new logo redesign, saying that the best is yet to come, with a flagship Meizu ME5 rumored to arrive later this year.

How flagship? Well, it apparently be powered by an Exynos 7420 chipset, the same 14nm futureproof silicon by Samsung that is in the S6 or the Note5. That chipset powerhouse just scored the whopping 69,000 on AnTuTu from a Meizu phone (possibly the ME5), proving once again that it is the fastest processor in the Android world at the moment. 

The new ME5 flagship will apparently land in two versions, though - one with a 5.5" 1080p display, said Exynos 7420, and 3 GB RAM, as well as a Pro edition, possibly with a deca-core Helio X20 processor, and 4 GB of RAM. In any case, both should share a 21 MP camera on the back with f/1.8 aperture, but the Pro might add OIS, as well as a 6.2 MP frontal shooter, tip the insiders.

The battery pack of the latter is said to be 3600 mAh, which is quite generous for a phone that will allegedly be sub-8mm thick. The downside is that the spec'd-out version of the ME5 is said to cost about 5000 yuan, which is more than $700, so Meizu has to really impress us with its creation, if this tag turns out to be credible. The source claims that the ME5 Pro would have a premium glass-and-metal-frame design, as well as a very bright AUO display with 20000:1 contrast ratio and lo reflectivity, so we can't wait for more info to seep through.
