Meizu MX5 rumors suggest crazy hi-res camera, fingerprint sensor not on home button
Coming from China-based tech blogging site MyDrivers, the latest MX5 rumor says that the handset will sport a 5.5" 2K screen (we wouldn't wager on the exact resolution, as the MX4 surprised all of us with its unorthodox 5:3 aspect ratio), will again be powered by a MediaTek SoC, and will be loaded with 4 GB of RAM.
Now, for the interesting bits – the publication says that the handset will have a fingerprint scanner, but will maintain the classic Meizu capacitive home button on the front. Could this mean a fingerprint scanner on the back? We wouldn't say it's unlikely, though, in the MX4 Pro, Meizu did do away with the capacitive O-shaped button, in order to house a biometric sensor instead. Secondly, the rumors speak of a 41 MP sensor for the phone's main camera – supposedly, a Nokia-made one at that! Now, the MX4 and MX4 Pro were both loaded with a 21 megapixel Sony IMX220 and we quite liked the results. If this rumor is true, we'd be more than curious to see the outcome. But for now – we'll just take this grain of salt in hand and wait patiently for some more reliable leaks.
Here's a couple of concept renders to tide you over in the meantime!
