Meizu MX5 listed with mCharge technology, to juice the battery 25% in 10 minutes
The announcement date of Meizu's latest MX5 flagship is fast approaching, and with it the leaks keep on trickling down the rumor pipe. The latest installment shows that Meizu will be equipping the phone with the so-called mCharge tech, allegedly some sort of fast charging, which will be able to juice it up to 25% in ten minute's time only. Topping it off to 60% will require a half hour more, it seems. The phone will also come with the newest Flyme 5.0 Android overlay of Meizu, which has been given a visual overhaul with transparency, glass effects, themes, and more.

The Meizu MX5 is expected to offer a 5.5" panel with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. A 64-bit MediaTek MT6795T SoC is under the hood, which contains a true octa-core CPU, and the PowerVR G6200 GPU, coupled with 3 GB of RAM. While the amount of internal storage is not known, it will be expandable thanks to the included 128GB capacity microSD slot. A 20 MP rear camera is on board, employing a Sony sensor, and a 3150mAh battery will reportedly keep the lights on.

Before you scoff at the "mere" 1080p screen (the MX4 Pro carries a QHD one, after all), bear in mind that the MX5 is expected to feature a premium metal body, and is said to cost the equivalent of $290 USD only, fingerprint sensor and all. We'll learn pretty soon what else does Meizu have in store for us, as the MX5 is slated for unveiling on June 30th.

I dont realize why they keep using two years old GPUs but guess with FHD display it should be good

This is based on the proprietary technology of MediaTek. No good, especially when compared to the much more widely deployed Qualcomm's QC2.0 and the upcoming standard USB Power Delivery. I am disappointed by the decision of MX5 to use neither Type-C connector and the adoption of the proprietary MTK's fast charging. This just adds another confusion to the consumers.

So it is one kind of fast charging.

5.0" could've been better. 5.5" is a phablet territory

The S6 beats that. I can get about 20% in 10 minutes.
