Meizu MX Pro 5 is the manufacturer's next high-end model?

Meizu MX Pro 5 is the manufacturer's next high-end model?
Here's what has happened in the last week or so in regards to Meizu's next high-end handset. Company executive Li Nan said that there wouldn't be an Meizu MX 5 Pro. Instead, word leaked out about a well-spec'd handset code named the Meizu NIUX (some of the leak came from Meizu's own president, Bai Yongxiang). Official renders of the phone, bearing more than a passing resemblance to the Apple iPhone 6, are plucked from the Weibo page of Meizu's Li Nan.

While we already knew that NIUX wasn't the real name, we got a clue to what the phone's real moniker could be earlier today, when a teaser for Meizu's September 23rd media event surfaced. Printed in the middle of the teaser are the words "Meizu Go Pro," which would seem to indicate that the word "Pro" will be included in the name of the handset.

We have now come across what is alleged to be a few photos showing the packaging for the device, embossed in gold with the name "Pro 5." One tip we received says that the NIUX will be the Meizu Pro 5, while another tip says that it will be called the Meizu MX Pro 5. Either way, it won't be the Meizu MX 5 Pro as Mr. Li said.

With Meizu's media event less than two weeks away, we should find out the real name of the NIUX soon.

Thanks for the tip!

I'm really curious if again they will make it killer in Audioi department, lately ZTE and other Chinese OEMs like Vivo stepped up the game with their professional grade DACs in their flagships so it would be nice to see another top dog in that competition. But please, this time with MicroSD slot! 64gb for FLAC files is laughable amount of storage.

I'm glad to see there are more people here who value audio quality :D I'm really tempted to try out Axon as it'll be released in Europe and will come with SD support. So far reviews tell that it has stellar audio output quality and I want to check this out on my own. If only it was smaller, the mythical Axon Mini is supposed to be 5.2 inch but it's still much larger than my taste can tolerate :d I need to compare M9, Axon, S6 but I won't get it for sure, ZTE Nubia if I get a chance which I doubt, because they also have some kind of AKM DAC if I remember correctly, shame that Z9 Mini doesn't have any DAC because Z5 Mini had amazing Yamaha DAC and unlike the big Z9, the Mini comes with SD slot so it has some potential for audiophiles aswell. And new iPhone I always found iPhones to be very good music players so I'm interested in its SQ too. It's cool that there are more and options for music enthusiasts these days
