Meizu’s phones have been well kept secrets for the most part, but regulatory authorities and benchmark databases have sort of given away the upcoming MX5.
The newest Meizu MX5 leak comes from Geekbench, where the phone scores a rough average of 970 points on the single-core test, and about 5300 average multi-core points through 3 tests. The previous version of the MX series flagship, i.e., the MX4 used the MediaTek MT6595 whereas the MX4 Pro came with the Exynos 5430.
The Geekbench test confirms that the Meizu MX5 will come powered by the octa-core 2.3GHz MediaTek MT6795T processor, a 5.5-inch screen and 3GB of RAM. If Meizu manage to keep pricing down to the same 1,799 Yuan of the MX4, Meizu certainly will be a force to reckon with this year… but we’re not certain how possible that is.
Anyway, the phone is expected to come out in the coming weeks to replace the MX4. Do you think Meizu will be able to win the battle against other fast-rising Chinese OEMs and their respective flagships with the MX5?
