It’s no surprise that traditional Android device manufacturers such as Samsung, HTC, Sony, et al. are under immense pressure to maintain market share while facing the onslaught of China’s Android handset makers producing smartphones with high-end specifications for mid-range prices. One such manufacturer is Meizu, whose upcoming MX5 Pro smartphone is rumoured to carry a 6-inch display and a processor produced by Samsung.
The 6-inch display will sport a 2K resolution while the Samsung-made processor is thought to be the same chip that powers the Galaxy S6, the Exynos 7420 Octa-core. On the multi-tasking side of things, the MX5 Pro will feature 4GB of RAM to take help take advantage of the 64-bit capability of the CPU (and Android). The Meizu MX5 Pro will also have an oval-shaped home button with a built-in fingerprint scanner.
On to the rear camera, and here we should see Sony’s 20MP sensor. Such a large display with such a high resolution will use a fair amount of juice, but that should be no problem with the MX5 Pro’s battery thought to have a capacity of over 4,000mAh. With a rumoured launch date of sometime in July, there isn’t too long to wait until the Meizu MX5 Pro’s secrets are known.
