Unannounced Meizu Pro 5 (aka NIUX) gets run through GeekBench and GFXBench; latest specs leak
The Meizu Pro 5, the manufacturer's latest high-end handset, is expected to be officially unveiled on September 25th. Code named the Meizu NIUX, the device will reportedly be offered in two variants. One will be powered by the MediaTek MT6797 chipset, which features a deca-core CPU. The other version is powered by the Exynos 7420. It was the latter version of the phone that recently went through the GeekBench benchmark test.

Interestingly, even though the Exynos 7420 also powers the Samsung Galaxy Note5, the Meizu Pro 5 outscored Sammy's phablet on the GeekBench test. Meizu's upcoming model tallied a single-core score of 1550, and a multi-core score of 5593. That compares to the Galaxy Note5's average score of 1490 for single-core, and 4950 for multi-core.

While the Pro 5 has yet to be benchmarked with the MT6797 SoC inside, the Helio X20 chipset went through the GeekBench test powering the HTC One A9. Carrying its deca-core CPU, the chip produced a single-core score of 1835 and a multi-core tally of 5884.

The Meizu Pro 5 has also been spotted on GFXBench, which resulted in the dissemination of the latest rumored specs for the phone. We are now looking at a 5.8-inch, 1080 x 1920 resolution screen. The Exynos 7420 chipset is under the hood, featuring an octa-core 2.1GHz CPU and the Mali-T760 MP8 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside, along with 64GB of native storage. A 20MP camera is on back, with a 5MP front-facing snapper taking selfies and handling video chats. Android 5.1.1 is pre-installed.

Thanks for the tip!

But..the fact remains that it beats it in performance due to the smart decision of sticking to 1080p. Same goes for Apple. The difference in a 1080p and 1440p isn't that big of a deal. The difference in performance between the two is substantial.

Dummy, we are separate people. I don't know why he would be an idiot and comment right now to make it look like we could be the same person...but trust me, I have nothing to do with that fool.

Check post #8. You literally proved my point. SAMSUNGPATRIOT account made in May with 3 posts "randomly" comes into this thread trying to gain some credibility. You are getting exposed wihtout you knowing it.

It's funny because I totally can see why you'd think we are the same account, but in reality we are separate accounts. You can even have an editor confirm this for you.

There are units of S6 or Note 4 having equal higher benchmark score than that. Variability. However, I believe this is the recently common "performance mode" on most Chinese manufacture now (Xiaomi, Lenovo also)

That helio x20 seems to be a beast, though I doubt of the GPU is any good.

Yeah... Comparing two device with 2k resolution and FHD is unfair. Actually, Meizu's phone ought to perform much better.

Imagine this was on a 720 or 750p?

This would easily score 1700 singles core score on 750p and 34fps on gfxbench

My opinion, never buy a smartphone for its benchmark result.
