If you want to wait for the Meizu MX4 Pro launch on Wednesday then close your eyes now as GFX Bench has revealed processor details.
Last week Li Nan revealed that the Meizu MX4 Pro won’t run a 64bit Mediatek processor or a Samsung Exynos 5433 chipset. Since then fans have been attempting to guess just which processor Meizu had decided to use.
Well the cat is out of the bag as the MX4 Pro has been spotted on GFX Bench sporting a Samsung Exynos 5430 octacore processor. The 5430 was launched earlier this year and was the first processor to be manufactured with the 20nm HKMG process, reducing heat, and power consumption.
Gizchina News of the week
The database also revealed that the Meizu MX4 Pro has 3GB RAM, a 5.5-inch 2560 x 1536 display, 20.7 mega-pixel rear camera, 5 mega-pixel front and Android 4.4.4 Kitkat. These specs still need to be confirmed at the launch, but they do line up with previous reports for the device. All we need to know now is the battery size and what other special features the MX4 Pro might contain.
I am already in Beijing for the MX4 Pro launch so keep your eyes on GizChina for launch news.
The 2k screen does effect the benchmark results. So they wont be leading the benchmarks scores like the MX4 does. But the initial benchmarks shown on gfxbench are significantly low compared to other 2k screen phones. Doesn’t even stand up to LG G3.
Now that’s bad even though we all know that synthetic benchmarks are not everything.
Exynos processor to support another Wolfson audio DAC.
Why buy the Pro version for $100 more when the only difference is the screen resolution and finger print scanner, with a downgraded or side-graded processor?
Almost the same thoughts i have. I don’t really know the power of this cpu but I do know that i don’t like bigger screen than ~5.0 inches and the QHD screen imo is not really needed on phones. Except the fingerprint scanner that is a nice new feature and the 1 extra GB of ram , i don’t really regret that I WILL get the standard meizu mx4 (god’s will the Russians will work faster and open the retail sales!!!)
An QHD screen with this SoC? They should have gone with the one samsung uses in their Note 4 phone.
Samsung say it’s up to the task of 2K. Guess we’ll see in a few days
True but Samsung themselves put that chip inside of a 720p smartphone, which has about 4 times less pickels than the Meizu MX4 pro.
@Gizchina:disqus when are the results of the Mi3 Review Contest on MTK forums coming out? It has been a long time. You had earlier said that they would be out on October 28th.
Now I am certain that no one will bay this especially at that price point they out done their self with choosing worst possible SoC. What is a point of 2K or 4K display on the phone? Lol I need a 50″ on a 2 meters from me to say that I have something from 4K display. Mobile phone GPUs still didn’t reach the desirable performance point for full HD display & they won’t until switching to a 16~14 nm lithographic three gate process next year pared with 2x 128 rops Maxwell or 6 cluster rogue 7XT. What’s bad with 4.6~4.7″ IGZO display to make battery life better & phone’s in pocket size? Zero innovation & a big price tag for April fool’s! One more thing phone’s should stay at 8~9 mm thickness with much bigger battery capacity.
At least I guessed right about GPU & it should be faster than T760MP4 at least. Still Kirin’s have better LTE & smaller price with same performance. I am really thank full to the author of GL Tools as we at least can use 2K phone’s for something more than 2D with that app!
The Exynos uses Mali Mp6, while Kirin uses Mali Mp4. So 2 cores more powerful GPU. But i still do feel it might be under powered for a 2k display. But its a new chip and so wont judge yet.
I whose aiming on Kirin 925 & everything is underpowered even for full HD find the iPhone 6 to 5 3D bench comparison & take a look.
Didn’t point out I whose aiming at Kirin 925 so that’s my bad. Specs:
& I don’t find even that SoC good.
the information on that site is wrong.
@Andi waiting to hear about the Mi 3 India review contest results…
