The upcoming Meizu Pro 5 may have a smaller brother if rumors prove to be true. The alleged 5-inch Meizu Pro 5 Mini could carry a MediaTek Helio X20 SoC with 4 GB RAM, metal chassis, and a 16 MP rear camera.

The Mini version is expected to launch for around 2000 Yuan or the equivalent of about 290 Euros to compete directly against the Huawei Mate 8 and Xiaomi Mi 5. The Helio X20 SoC is a 10-core processor featuring Tri-Cluster (2x 2.5 GHz Cortex-A72, 4x 2 GHz Cortex-A72, and 4x 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53) and includes an additional embedded Cortex-M4 for power-saving features. In comparison, the Meizu Pro 5 will carry an octa-core Samsung Exynos SoC and a 5.7-inch FHD display.

More details from the leak claim a Sony Exmor RS IMX230 image sensor for the rear 16 MP camera. According to Sony, the 1/2.4-inch CMOS sensor is capable of up to 21 MP as it appears on the Pro 5 model, but may support 5312 x 2988 pixel resolution (16 MP) pictures as on the alleged Pro 5 Mini.

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.
