Meizu MX5 Pro Plus images and specs leak: Exynos 7420 SoC, 4GB RAM and 20.7MP camera

Meizu MX5 Pro Plus images and specs leak: Exynos 7420 SoC, 4GB RAM and 20.7MP camera
Earlier this month, we told you that Meizu would be skipping the Meizu MX5 Pro. That tip came from a Meizu executive, who said that the manufacturer would be replacing the phone with a handset from a new series. Whether or not this is that handset, images have leaked today of a new model called the Meizu MX5 Pro Plus.  Speculation has this handset powered by the Samsung Exynos 7420, the chipset providing the horsepower for the Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, Samsung Galaxy Note5 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+. However, the Snapdragon 820 is also linked to this model via another rumor. Either way, this phone is probably going to be quite zippy.

Another rumor has the Meizu MX5 Pro Plus being a multi-tasking monster with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM inside. Imaging wise, we expect to see a 20.7MP rear-facing camera handling photography chores for the phone.

While the Meizu MX5 Pro Plus apparently made a trip through the AnTuTu benchmark site, the results have been blurred out. The model number also can't be found, which could have helped us check out the specs on the phone. For now, we recommend taking this story with a grain of salt until Meizu announces what could be its new top-shelf handset.

We have images from Chinese tipster @KJuma, allegedly showing off the MX5 Pro Plus. Check them out by clicking on the slideshow located south of this paragraph.

Thanks for the tip!

The big.little architecture is what's causing these CPUs to overheat. I'll pass and wait until next year for 820.

I blame Qualcomm for the 810 overheating, not ARM Samsung's Exynos 5433 didn't overheat (similar to the 810, 20nm, 4x A57s and 4x A53s) That being said, I would prefer asynchronous custom core over the current A57s+A53

I blame the octa core....since i heard that SD820 is gonna be quad core...

mediatek 8-core still cooler than quad-core snapdragon

And who will produce the chip, Samsung? If so, how that is connected to the 5 months delay of releasing Note5 in Europe?

Based on the photos, it's one more "inspired by AppleSung"

The 810 would overheat much more if it was only 4x A57s Or the 810 would have much less performance if it was only 4x A53s I blame Qualcomm's inexperience with big.LITTLE Similar to how some of Samsung's first big.LITTLE SoCs had issues with overheat/efficiency (to be fair, those were minor compared to the 810's) Again that being, I would prefer a 4-2 core SoC with asynchronous custom core from Qualcomm since that has work better for them in the past

bigLITTLE other than 810 didnt have overheat problem.. they must have know the real cause of this problem and fix it in 820

Ahaha what a stupid comment :D Another "tech specialist"? :)))

Very interested in trying out Meizu. I hope the MX5 Pro is dual sim.

So it's essentially the same phone as the samsung note 5.

You can save half the cost of a Note 5 by buying this. The trade-off is losing the stylus.

S-Pen still makes a difference, but basically yes!

Its a same specced cheaper Note 5 that is missing s-pen. If spen is worth 300$ for some people then I have lost any hope for tech geeks IQ.

I'm guessing your a tech geek to, then you should also know that there's more to the note 5 than just the S-Pen... also how is IQ related to someone wanting to spend more because they like a product and has money for it?

The reality is that if the smartphone has the Exynos 7420 SoC to buy a Note 5 ??

Now they finally admitted that Samsung's home button is the best in terms of size and shape. Apple will copy the Samsung home button in the future.

I use to pike apple home button better. But Samsung home button is what makes more sense. Is small. Unobtrusive and greatly reduces the top and bottom bezel compared to apples iphone

That's why the back placement makes even more sense, even more with stereo speakers

stereo speaker + no dedicated key in front side + >80% screen-to-body ratio

Fail! They made an Antutu run to blur the final score? Why? Maybe... it's a fake?

Another day, another phablet...

Better than the Note 5 and the S6 Edge Plus.
