Pictures of the Meizu MX4 Pro show the phone's metallic body on the inside
Meizu's event, where the company will reportedly announce the MX4 Pro, and possibly an iPod-like MP3 player, is only 5 days away, and surprise, surprise – we have some more leaked photos to show.

China-based website iGeek was nice enough to post a few pictures of the new phablet's metallic body, sans the display panel and back cover. On them, we can clearly see a square cutout, where the home button is supposed to be. This goes in line with rumors about a fingerprint sensor that we've been hearing about the new handset.

The Meizu MX4 Pro is an anticipated handset among those in-the-know, since its predecessor – the MX4 – has proven to be a quite capable device. It topped the list of AnTuTu's most powerful phones for Q3 2014, it has an impressive 20.7 Sony IMX 220 sensor-equipped camera, and it houses a beautiful 5.2” display in an easy-to-hold chassis, with an impressive 75.52% screen-to-body ratio.

The Pro variant is rumored to build up on that with a larger, 5.5” screen, a QHD resolution (1440 x 2560), a Samsung-made Exynos octa-core CPU, 3 GB of RAM, and the aforementioned fingerprint scanner. The price of this new powerhouse is yet unknown, though, it won't be long now – there are just 5 days left to the 19th of November.


Another rumor claims that the MX4 Pro will come in 16 and 32 GB variants, priced at $520 and $570, respectively. The SoC on board is said to be the Exynos 5 5430 – the same one that can be found in the Samsung Galaxy Alpha. The fingerprint scanner will reportedly (and hopefully) be of the press-to-scan type, a-la Apple, instead of the swipe-to-scan type found on Samsung devices.

It will be interesting to see what Meizu does with the Samsung-made CPU – the aforementioned AnTuTu statistic claimed that the Exynos-equipped Galaxy Alpha actually fared worse than the Snapdragon-toting one, and omitted the Exynos results. Let's hope the manufacturer knows what its doing and doesn't ruin the MX4's track record with an underperforming Pro variant.
