Meizu PRO 5 appears on Geekbench, trumps the Galaxy Note5!

The Meizu PRO 5 (or a variant thereof) is all set to join the likes of the mighty Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6, etc with its Exynos 7420 processor.

Naturally, we’re pretty darn excited for this one, especially after Meizu impressed (fairly) with the MX5. Meizu announced finally that the new line of premium phones that it had been working on was to be addressed as the PRO line; the first of which is set to be the PRO 5 later this month.

The phone’s already suffered a tonne of leaks, but it looks like there’s still some way to go before they stop. Today, the Meizu PRO 5 was spotted on Geekbench, pushing around the best phones on the benchmark listings. If you’ve been saving up to be able to purchase this new Meizu, you should probably celebrate because it turns out that the PRO 5 kicks ass. It trumps even the Samsung-made Galaxy Note5 with 1550/5593 points on single- and multi-core tests on Geekbench, while the Note5 manages 1508 and 5417 points respectively.

Quite clearly, the PRO 5 (codename NUIX) will have more than just a bit of processing prowess!

What we know so far about the PRO 5/NUIX:

  • Full metal body
  • 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080p FHD screen
  • 21 mega-pixel rear camera
  • 5 mega-pixel front facing camera
  • Exynos 7420 processor
  • 3/4GB RAM
  • 2.5D curved glass on top
  • 3600mAh battery

Rumours have indicated at a price tag of around 3000 Yuan, which is starting to look more and more justified after every leak. What’s your take?
