Following the Meizu MX3 in 2013 and MX4 in 2014, the first alleged photo of the inevitable successor has finally surfaced with an official announcement likely to come this July. The new smartphone may come in two versions: the MX5 and larger MX5 Pro.
The MX5 Pro will sport a glass and metal frame and will supposedly run on Samsung's octa-core Exynos 7420 SoC with 4 GB RAM and a 6-inch 1440 x 2560 resolution display. The leaks claims a battery capacity just as large at 4000 mAh and even a potential fingerprint scanner.
Meanwhile, the MX5 - no, not the car - is expected to be slightly smaller with a 5.5-inch 1440 x 2560 resolution display and 3 GB RAM and feature a weaker MediaTek MT6795 processor. It's not likely to have a fingerprint scanner, but the rear camera may capable of 20.7 MP pictures.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
