Meizu MX5 alloy rear end surfaces for the camera once again

meizu mx5

If we are to take all these rumours as gospel then Meizu are likely to launch an m2 and MX5 at an event held on 30th June in Beijing.

Meizuā€™s recent decisions have left us all scratching our heads. Why have they created a successor to the m1 note when the phone only launched in December? And why are we seeing rumours of the m2 when the original m1 only came in to being in January? There are rumours as to why Meizu had to make changes to their phones, but still Iā€™d be a little upset if I was a Meizu m1 or m1 note owner myself.

What we have above is a reason for MX4 and MX4 Pro owners to worry. That metal rear shell is believed to be from the upcoming Meizu MX5, and as you can see it is a one piece ally body not the same as the MX4/Pro which features a removable plastic rear cover.

As far as specifications go, the Meizu MX5 could launch with either a Mediatek chip, or Samsung. 1080 or 2K display and a fingerprint scanner, so in reality we donā€™t know much about this phone, but stay tuned and we are sure to have more.

    well I would like to see the MTK Helio x20 in actoin but a samsung chip like the one in the s6 is good too

    Its all very strange, the M2 note doesn’t appear to be the successor to the M1 note. Purely because of the specs. Is it not possible that they have simply added another product to there range. M2 being the more budget option and maybe there will be a M1 Note 2 as the successor?

      I totally agree with you
      The m2 note cost as much as the regular m1, and was released only several months after the m1 note, and the SoC inside it is weaker.

        The main reason in my opinion they did it because of the lawsuit by ZTE about using their holo home button, so they needed a new product with a physical home button

    That looks way bulky and combined with their stupid home button that ruins both looks and more importantly the ergonomics, it’s not gonna be fun.
    And then metal makes a lot of things worse .

      Depends what type of metal they use. The HTC metal phones feel excellent in the hands.

    My MEIZU experience
    Positive: Well build and solid phone with high specs.
    Negative: Premature Flyme Os. (Old version of Chrome browser, delayed notification, connection problem with email app with wifi internet, stuck, late Android updates, bla bla.)
    Conclusion: Excitement and Disappointment
