Pictures of the Meizu MX5 Pro leak; 6-inch premium model to feature more power than the MX5
The other day, a video showing the unannounced Meizu MX5 surfaced. Offering a 5.5-inch AMOLED screen carrying thin bezels and a 1080 x 1920 resolution, the device is powered by a MediaTek MT6793 chipset with 3GB of RAM, and features a 20MP rear-facing camera. For selfies and video chats, users can employ the 3MP snapper that adorns the front of the unit. Android 5.0 is pre-installed with the manufacturer's FlyMe OS skin running on top.

But as seems to be the case these days, a number of smartphone buyers want more powerfully spec'd handsets. The manufacturers are obliging them by offering "Plus," "Max" or "Pro" versions of their regular models. For example, there is the Apple iPhone 6 Plus, Oppo R7 Plus, HTC M9+ and the Huawei P8 Max to name a few. The premium models might have a larger screen with higher resolution, a more powerful SoC, additional RAM and a larger battery inside just to mention a few things.

Meizu will apparently follow this game plan by offering a handset called the Meizu MX5 Pro. All we know about the device is that it will feature a 6-inch screen and have more powerful hardware. Pictures allegedly showing the model have surfaced and they show a rather large device. Speculation has the Meizu MX5 getting unveiled later this month. We'd expect the MX5 Pro to see the light of day at the same time.

Thanks for the tip!

Well this is Meizu, but Xiaomi is also Chinese and they just stayed selling accessories in the U.S. and are slowly but surely getting ready to launch devices in the states most likely 2016
