Leaked images of Meizu Pro 5 running stock Android


A trio of purported leaked images claim to show the upcoming Meizu Pro 5 running stock Android OS.

Part of what makes a Meizu a Meizu, is the traditional ‘Meizu Shape’ and the use of the companies’s own Flyme ROM based on Android. These leaked images show one of those ingredients, the shape is similar to the current Meizu MX5, but Flyme is doesn’t make an appearance.

This leaked version of the Meizu Pro 5 appears to be running a stock Android OS. That’s not to say that Meizu are planning to launch a pure Android experience on the new flagship (although it could be a nice option) and more likely we are looking at an early prototype of the phone.

Paying closer attention to the design of the Meizu Pro 5 we can make out a curve to the glass on the phone, proving rumours of a 2.5D glass display accuracy, and a unibody alloy shell is in play too.

A partial image of the rear of the phone could easily be from the Meizu MX5. It shows the same alloy design, large camera lens and familiar LED flash/Laser focus found on the Mediatek powered phone.

From earlier reports Meizu are expected to release the Pro 5 with a 5.7-inch 1920 x 1080 display, 4GB RAM, Samsung Exynos 7420 chipset, 5 mega-pixel front camera and 21 mega-pixel rear. We have also learned that the Meizu Pro 5 will have fast charging and could cost as much as 3000 Yuan once officially released next week.

    typos “ally” and “77420”

    I don’t understand the choice of making this Pro version that could be appealing only for SoC fanatics.
    actually i doubt that too considering that more SoCs are coming out soon.

    some people might point the price comparing to Samsung? well,the Samsung S6 edge is down to 550$ right now. I wonder who’s gonna buy this phone.

      According to previous news this phone is first of a new line by Meizu and not only a “pro” version of MX5.
      Also the 190 x 1080 display is a nice typo in the last paragraph.

      International sales are a smidgen of Meizu’s revenues and, in China, a legit (non-grey market) Galaxy S6 is closer to $700. Plenty of room in the $450-500 range. The real question is whether there’s something besides the Exynos lurking in the Pro 5 that -in real world use- distances it from the MX5 or any other Meizu device. That didn’t happen with the MX4 Pro.
