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
Meizu dazzled the world today, revealing the MX5, the Chinese-based company’s new flagship for the year. The MX5 is beautifully designed, and under the hood it packs a punch.
Canonical will be launching its third ever Ubuntu-powered smartphone in Europe tomorrow, which is based on Meizu’s popular MX4.

Hot on the heals of its official announcement, a leaked snap of the Meizu Note 2 has appeared online, revealing that the handset is set to ship running Flyme — a highly-adapted version of Android 5.1 Lollipop.
Meizu is rumored to launch a new version of its Android-powered MX4 smartphone on May 18, according to a Chinese report. Only this time, it will be running the Ubuntu OS.
The upcoming Helio X20 processor, developed by MediaTek, has reportedly received attention from plenty of the largest Android device manufacturers. Companies that have expressed interest in the deca-core processor include Sony, LG, HTC, ZTE, Lenovo, Meizu, Huawei, and Xiaomi.
It may seem a little early in the cycle given that Meizu’s last flagship device, the Meizu MX4, just launched last fall, but there are some early rumors already floating around about a successor, likely to be the Meizu MX5. We know that Sony has already moved to a faster than annual update cycle, so we may not have to wait until next fall for the Meizu MX5 if they are looking to employ a similar strategy. When it gets here, it could be equipped with a fingerprint sensor and a whopping 41 MP camera sensor. Read more
