Mystery MT6752 phone hits Geekbench running Android 5.0, rumoured to be new Meizu


Rumour has it that Meizu are working on a new low-cost phone and that the device will be released this month. With that in mind, is this Geekbench report from the new Meizu?

We know that Meizu are working closely with Mediatek these days to launch phones based on the latest processors from the Taiwanese chip maker. The Meizu MX4, for example, was the first to get a MT6595 chipset with built-in LTE and powerful performance.

The Mediatek link is believed to continue with the launch of a new low-cost machine from Meizu, which showed up in GFXbench recently. The new phone is believed to be part of a new entry-level line up from Meizu and not under the current MX4 range.

Although not confirmed to be the mystery Meizu, a phone did appear with an MT6752 8-core 64bit chipset yesterday on Geekbench. The details of the test show the phone runs Android 5.0, and show a strong multi-core score of 4260. For comparison sake the OnePlus One score just 2689 in the same tests running Lollipop too.

Whether this is the new Meizu or not remains to be seen, but what we do know is that even Mediatek’s mid-range chipsets are offering serious performance for 2015!

    An entry-level phone that kicks flagship butt? Count me in.

      Whilst that’s great, do bear in mind that the single core performance is lower. Only programs/apps etc that can use all 8 cores simultaneously will benefit otherwise it probably won’t be as fast. On a positive though, its great to see Mediatek starting to make waves in the higher end of the smartphone market, can’t wait to see what else they have planned over the coming months!

        840 against 1003 is forgivable.

          I agree, great to see these numbers from MT. If they could just pair the cpu up with a better gpu or more cores then it would put the chip on a totally different level.

        Most apps/games take advantage of more cores. They are probably are not 100% optimized but will have a higher performance than just using 2 or 4 cores.

    The point is the perf not the empty Meizu speculation.
    A redmi note does some 450 and 2400, a snapdragon 615 some 700 and 2500.
    Anyway if you search on Geekbench for mt6752 you’ll find a bunch of results not just this one.
    The perf is rather good for mainstream and the soon to arrive MT6795 is supposed to be clocked at 2.2GHz (vs 1.7 for this one) plus it has dual channel memory so it should do a lot better.

    Around the 1000-1200 yuan range, this makes a nice competitor for the Redmi series. Hopefully, they will release it at the end of this month.

    Could it be the Mx4 mini ?
    Have you read the benchmarks comparing the mx4 pro and mx4 provided by GizmoChina, the mx4 is superior in almost every tests!

      The MT6595 is a beast. Totally in another league.

        They should have just saved the MTK6595 chip for the Pro version.

          That exynos chip powered the Galaxy Alpha with 720p display and yet could not beat the MT6595 in numerous benchmarks. Don’t know what they where thinking.

    Seriously how many times do I need to post this?

    So news are not news this is known for a whole year!

    I believe that this phone will not be released for a while, since it says alpha on the specs sheet. It also says 64 so I assume it will be a 64 bit phone, and it says op02 which could mean option 2. That might mean it is the upgraded version of the phone and there will be a lower priced/lower specced version of the device also for sale.

    Also there is a Meizu handset appeared on GFXBench. It’s name or code name is k52. Device has a 4.6″ FHD display, though display size could be wrong. GFXBench time to time does misread -especially display size- infos. Likely 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage other specs.
