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!
