Merely a week away from official launch at the end of this month, we already know a lot about the Meizu MX5; that it would be running a yet unreleased octa-core Mediatek MT6793 chipset at clock speeds of 2.1GHz processor with 3GB of RAM and 16GB internal storage expandable via microSD, packing a 3,150mAh battery along with a fingerprint sensor in the home button, a 5.5-inch FullHD display, booting FlymeOS 4.5 on top of Android 5.0.1.
The latest leaks, courtesy of a few benchmark listings, one confirming the specs we already knew, and revealing a few more, while another providing insight on the performance you could expect from Meizu’s newest flagship, the Meizu MX5. The GFXBench entry confirms what previous rumors have settled on in terms of display size, OS, and memory.
The internal memory available on Meizu MX5 to the user would be around 12 GB, along with 3 GB of RAM. The Meizu MX5 is capable of shooting videos at a 4K quality with 20.7MP primary camera, and videos at 1080p with its 5MP secondary selfie camera.
Initially thought to be powered by the MT6793, we now know for sure that it will be powered by Mediatek’s MT6795T SoC, also known as Helio X10, which has 64-bit architecture, along with support for capabilities like 4G/LTE, video recording at 480fps, display at 120fps, and H.265 Ultra HD 4K2K video encoding at 30fps. It would also have a PowerVR G6200 GPU which competes directly with the Adreno 430 in terms of capabilities and performance.
With a score in the 5300 range, the Meizu MX5 directly competes with Samsung S6 in terms of performance. However, benchmarks aside, we’d be glad to review how the device fares in terms of day-to-day usage, fluidity, battery life, stability, gaming, etc. as soon as we can get our hands on a review unit!
So, what do you think about the latest (yet to be released) flagship from Meizu, the Meizu MX5? Let us know!
