Meizu MX5 will have a “Full Metal Jacket” will launch 30th June

The rumours have been proven true! The latest Meizu teaser (from Meizu China) confirms the release date and the choice of design and material for the up coming Meizu MX5.

Meizu’s strange strategy or retiring perfectly good phones way too early continues with a teaser that confirms the launch of a 2nd product on 20th June. We’ve already seen details of the Meizu m2 from Tenaa, but the latest teaser speaks of a metal bodied phone and that can only mean the Meizu MX5.

The teaser announces that the Meizu MX5 will be released in Beijing on 30th June (just as the months old rumours had told us), and through the use of an old movie title reveal details of the build of the new phone.

“Full Metal Jacket” seems to confirm that the latest flagship Meizu will actually have a full alloy chassis this time around. The current MX4 range has a very large and unnecessary removable rear panel to get to the single SIM slot, but that could be dumped on the new phone in favour of a full alloy chassis and SIM tray. This would improve the overall look and feel of the phone and perhaps make the MX5 a little thinner too.

In addition to the alloy chassis the MX5 is believed to have a 5.5-inch FHD display, physical home button, 20 mega-pixel main camera, 3GB RAM and Mediatek chipset (although some sources say a Samsung processor). We also believe the Meizu m2 could launch around the same time as the MX5.

    I love the looks of it and I am a huge fan of Flyme. I though the Mx4 was a good phone but just wasn’t crazy about the looks. This could be the phone to finally lure me away from Xiaomi.

      “I am a huge fan of Flyme”

      Maybe you read my thoughts on how stupid i think it is to have a chin with one phisical button + navbar,when they drop the navbar,very soon they say,i’ll be back…maybe

        I am guessing the button is for a fingerprint scanner.

          thats would be cool, i think flyme on the MX4 its amaizing (you can hide the navbar and do everything with the capacitive button.
          the capacitive button on ZTE (due to this company Meizu cannot use it?) it has gestures like the MX4?

      Yeah Me too, searching for a good photo to sub out my Mi3 and if Meizu does it I’m going to be all over it don’t Care about Price as long as it is sub 550euros.

        Meizu typically has good cameras.

          yep another reason to sub out Mi3

            Xaiomi also has good cameras though, in fact I can’t think of a single Xiaomi phone with a bad camera. Even the Redmi 2 has an excellent camera, maybe one of the best in a budget device.

              Can’t argue on the redmi 2 camera

    I see here on the picture a CUOC and CMCC, is that mean the MX5 will have dual sim?

    Which camera will use? And It will be cool to have a Mediatek chipset(240fps and 480fps slowmotion) and it will be cheaper. If fone will be 330EUR I will buy it 🙂

    I’d like it more if they would keep the removable back and add a removable battery and an sd card slot.

    They are switching to an ugly 16:9 form factor, thats too bad.

      lol So you’re calling 99% of the phones ugly then.

    I wonder where they’ll put the GPS and modem antennas so that the metal chassis won’t shield the signal.
