Meizu ‘NUIX’ ME5 leaks, shows 2.5D glass screen, 3/4GB RAM variants


Meizu’s project NUIX is well underway with a launch expected in the coming days. Today, more news about the phone including a leaked picture of an alleged test unit surfaced.

The NUIX will be the ME5, according to our source. The ME5 will come in a couple variants with either 3GB or 4GB RAM, sporting the same Samsung Exynos 7420 processor. It was being said that the phone would have a 2K display, but neither the 3GB or the 4GB RAM versions seem to offer the high-res screen according to the source.

The leak goes on to mention that the display for the phone would be sourced by Sharp, a company whose panels fit onto a lot of phones, especially those that want to be known as flagships. Atop the Sharp screen, the ME5 is believed to have a 2.5D curved display.

As for software, the ME5 will have Flyme OS based off Android 5.1 Lollipop. Since Meizu’s always been keen on having high-grade multimedia features on its phones, the ME5 is going to be no different with a 21 mega-pixel rear camera (we have to wait and see what sensor model it uses) along with a 5 mega-pixel front shooter.

Moving on to what matters the most — pricing — it’s said that the ME5 will sell for upwards of 3,000 Yuan or US$470; Meizu may have to rethink its strategies if that is going to be the case.

    Still nothing interesting on meizu phones all same design, it s very boring, if they are planning to give the brand a new breath, it s a fail for me…

      That’s not the back ,it’s the back of the screen. it just shows both sides of the display.

    The best thing for them, remove flyme os and use cyanogenmod or stock android
