Meizu has officially announced its Pro 5 flagship handset in China. Most of the specifications match those in recent leaks.
Meizu is sending out press event invites for September 23 in Beijing, China, where the company is expected to launch its next generation of Meizu smartphones. The promotional photo has the words “MEIZU GO PRO” over a man climbing a snowy mountain.
Starting today, residents in India can pick up Meizu’s latest smartphone, the MX5. The handset is available to purchase exclusively from independent retailer Snapdeal for Rs. 19,999, which equates to approximately $300.
Over the weekend, a set of leaked images displaying Meizu’s upcoming flagship smartphone of 2015, the MX5 Pro Plus, appeared online revealing the design of the device. Not surprisingly, the handset looks almost identical to its brethren, the MX5 Pro, with a slightly larger screen.
If you cast your mind back to June, you may recall that Meizu unveiled its flagship smartphone of 2015, the M2 Note, at a press event in China. Now the company has taken to its official Twitter feed to announce that the handset will launch exclusively through Amazon in India starting Monday, August 10. The device will be available in both black and white colorways and will have a price tag of INR 9,999 ($157).
Earlier today, a Meizu device, likely the upcoming M2, surfaced on AnTuTu and scored 28,047. According to previous leaks, the M2 will ship with two storage options: 8GB and 16GB. The pricing for them will be 499 Yuan ($80) and 699 Yuan ($113), respectively. We are looking at a 5-inch 720p display, 2GB of RAM, 13MP rear camera and 5MP front-facing camera. The M2 will be powered by MediaTek’s MT6753 64-bit octa-core SoC and run Android 5.0 Lollipop with Flyme UI on top of it.
The device is also expected to ship with 4G LTE connectivity and dual-SIM capabilities likes its predecessor. The Meizu M2 is scheduled to be announced at an event in China on July 29th.
Meizu this week announced its latest flagship, the MX5, and now it’s available to pre-order worldwide through online retailer Gearbest. The online retailer plans on shipping devices starting on August 1.
Meizu has officially launched the Meizu MX5 smartphone today, bringing a full metal body to their flagship device. Meizu continues with MediaTek providing the computing power for their smartphone with the MX5 getting the Helio X10 chip and it gets 3GB of memory. What is different this year is the change from an LCD display used in last year’s MX4 to a new Samsung AMOLED display. In a curious twist, while the screen may have a little more “pop” now, it actually has a lower resolution as it moves up to 5.5-inches in size, but only runs at 1080p resolution. Read more
