10-core Helio X20 leaks via force-touch enabled Meizu phone


meizu new logo

Meizu’s either trying very hard to be in the news all the time, or they have a killer product in the pipeline. That rhymed, but more importantly, we’ve gotten a sneak peek at what could be Meizu’s first 10-core phone with force touch.

After ZTE Axon Mini and the Huawei Mate S (and probably the next iPhone), the MX5 Pro could be the Meizu’s first force touch enabled phone. And this could very well come alongside the ‘NUIX’ phone that leaked recently with a Samsung Exynos 7420 processor, aka the chip that powers the Galaxy S6.

Information about this new model comes from nowhere else but AnTuTu, where the phone allegedly scores more than 70,000 points. Other info that the database leak confirms:

  • 10-core MediaTek MT6797 SoC
  • 1920 x 1080p FHD screen (underwhelmed?)
  • 21.2 mega-pixel camera
  • 72,968 AnTuTu score

The screenshot does say that the CPU has 8 cores, but according to the source that’s because of a bug on the app which doesn’t identify the 2x Cortex A72 cores besides the two clusters of 4x A53 cores.

MediaTek have impressed one and all with the new range of chipsets this year. Do you think Meizu needs an Exynos 7420 model besides this one? Considering this is real, that is…

    Well, if Meizu’s next top model will be equipped with a Equinox SoC in combination with a 5,5″ screen, it would make sense to position another phone with a (5″?) FHD screen that’s slightly less powerful, i.e. the Helio X20.

    • September 7, 2015

      Helio X20 is slightly less powerful than the Exynos 7420? Dude, do a little research before posting crap in here.

      If the Helio X20 really scores approx 72K on antutu, it actually is more powerful than the Exynos 7420.

        Antutu is not important

        • September 7, 2015

          Agreed that Antutu is not that important when it comes to these super mobile chips. But you have to consider the fact that Exynos 7420 has 4x A53 and A57 cores while the Helio X20 has 8x A53 and 4x A72 (which are more powerful than the A57) cores.

          So, in your opinion, which should be more powerful?

            Mediatek Helio X20 MT6797 has only 2x A72

          • balcobomber25
            September 8, 2015

            The X20 has 4x A53, 4x A57 and 2x A72. It should be more powerful than the 7420 in overall usage but it will fall behind in the GPU.

        not just antutu the x20 has a72 cores which are way better then the a57 cores on the 7420

          They use 25% less power & run 5% faster. The gpu on Exunos is at least 50% faster.

          Mediatek Helio X20 MT6797 has only 2x A72 cores, compared to 4x A57 in the Samsung Exynos 7420. The GPU in exynos 7420 is also much better.

    Helio X20 + 21MP cam could mean support for 480fps slow motion video recording *fingers crossed*

      The front facing camera is important to me too. I hope they finally have an 8MP or better. Nice is it had auto-focus too. Surely the older 8MP components are now cheap.

      Yeah this is one of the most expected features for me – i would really love a phone that would have such slo mo capabilities without need for a pro cam

    Mediatek seems at home where others seem odd balls.

    I can’t help to think Elephone Vowney is becoming old specs. The Helio X10 is already growing grey whiskers.

    No 4K capable cpu and gpu, not interested. In 2016 I want a 4k ready phone for VR and this is not it.

      September 7, 2015

      No offense – but having hopes for portable vr as of now is pointless – Stick to the samsungs ( no joke ) for the best vr on the mobile market with features (as of now) But No fruckin content

    This might mean that the chip has Mali 880MP4, which should score about 14-15k at 1080p and around 10k at 1440p.
    Taking into the account that the X10 scores around 50k with 8A53 cores, the two extra A72 should boost about 10k in performance and the rest from the better GPU.
    To conclude if Jiayu make a phone with the X20, I`m buying it without a doubt 😀

      i have a feeling we will grow old by the time Jiayu releases a well packaged phone!

      At Jiayu’s rate you can expect that phone in 2018.

      • September 8, 2015

        At Elephone rate you can expect the phone in 2021,

      I thought the GPU was twice as strong as the X10’s, but the X10 scores 12.8k in 3d at 1080p… which kinda says you think it is only ~10% more powerful.

    sigh… what the hell are we doing with these power hungry chips that we need to put them in mobile devices? the x10 on 5.5 fhd screens with 3000mah batteries already gave horrible screen times. only 3-4 hours of screen time, wtf! the mt6752 had a good balance between performance and power efficiency. man, how i wish the exynos chips were cheaper.

      14nm x20 might suprise with it’s power efficiency.

      • The Bastard Christ
        September 7, 2015

        but then they put 2k/4k screens which defeats the purpose.

    • balcobomber25
      September 8, 2015

      I have an X10 with FHD and get very good battery time. These new chips are a lot more resource friendly.

      • The Bastard Christ
        September 9, 2015

        you have the mx5, right? what screen-on time with your use do you get with device?

        if you have the time, can you run geekbench 3 battery test on it without dimming the screen at 50% brightness? would like to know how it scores.

        • balcobomber25

          Geek bench I get the following:

          Single Core: 1178
          Multi Core: 4968

            I was talking about the gb 3 battery test. What screen-on times do you get with your use though? You have it on auto-brightness?

            • balcobomber25
              September 10, 2015

              I use around 60% brightness, hard to say cause Flyme doesnt give numbers for brightness levels. I get around a day and half of battery life with normal usage. Normal use for me is lots of facebook, about 20 pictures a day, listening to Google Play Music for a few hours and some youtube. I havent done in depth tests but i never need to charge this phone at night. when i do charge it, it takes about 35 minutes to go from 0-full.

            • The Bastard Christ
              September 11, 2015

              With that type of usage, can it do 5 hours of screen-on time?

            • balcobomber25
              September 11, 2015

              Yesterday I had about 7 hours of on screen time with normal usage described above.
