More real spy photo of the Meizu MX5 surface

meizu mx5

Following on from rumours and renders of a possible Meizu MX5, we now have photos showing a real device!

Obviously we are going to need something a little more substantial than a grainy photo, but this grainy photo does follow certain details that have been reported for a future Meizu device.

Early this week we broke news that Meizu could release a 2nd generation Note on the 2nd of June and Meizu MX5 on the 30th of June. Details of both phones include a metal chassis and fingerprint scanner.

New spy photos show a device matching that description, if we presume the finger print scanner is under the physical home button like the MX4 Pro. The photo also shows narrow bezels, dual LED flash and a 16:9 display.

Gizchina News of the week

We have a few reservations about these leaks and previous Meizu MX5 news though. Firstly the MX4 launched only 6 months ago and we don’t imagine MX4 owners would be thrilled with the idea of their phones becoming out of date. Also, the quality of the images would mean they could be easily photoshopped. We might just be looking at a white MX4 with some editing work.

On the other hand is this the rumoured Meizu/Nokia Supreme smartphone we have heard about in the past? Whatever it is we don’t have long until June when the launches are rumoured.

      Given the recent investment by Mediatek, this phone is almost certain to have the Helios X20, MTK’s flagship SoC. The X20 only supports up to 25mp cameras.

      There really is no need for a 41mp camera though. The 16mp from Sony paired with really good optics and OIS will take incredible pictures.

      yes it is… i stared at the back of my silver mx4 and its identical except….THE CAMERA!!! BOOM!!! look at that VERY wide hole in the middle…if that hole is all lens it would be great, plus it might be true since some months ago meizu ceo uploaded a photo of the front bottom half that looked exactly like this (just to show that they did oval before samsung) so yeah, in my eyes is the next meizu device to hit the stores BUT not an mx5… more like a mx4s or something

    The only reason I would consider the Meizu is the 4:3 aspect ratio. Terrible decision in my opinion.

    You call them “real spy photos” in the title and then question whether they are real or not in the article. Are they real or are they fake?

    Personally I will believe it when I see something from Meizu, I have seen to many “leaks” turn out to be false to believe them all.
