Meizu PRO 5 is faster than Galaxy Note 5

Meizu Pro 5 Geekbench results are better than those of Galaxy Note 5
Meizu NIUX results on Geekbench
According to a recent Geekbench entry, Meizu's upcoming handset is faster than Galaxy's high-end phablet.

Meizu PRO 5 is expected to launch in a week, but first benchmark result that appears to show what this handset is capable of has appeared on Geekbench already. Codenamed NIUX, the PRO 5 allegedly uses a Samsung Exynos 7420 SoC and could be a worthy competitor for Samsung's own flagship device, the notorious Galaxy Note 5.

The most interesting part of the story is that both the Meizu NIUX and the Galaxy Note 5 use the same processor, but we should wait and see the benchmark results of the Meizu PRO 5 that hits the market next week. After all, the NIUX spotted on Geekbench might be a prototype. The Meizu NIUX device tested on September 11 scored 1550 single-core points and 5593 points in multi-core tests while the average values of Samsung Galaxy Note 5 phablets tested with Geekbench are 1490 and 4950 points.

Since the Galaxy Note 5 has a QHD resolution display and the Meizu PRO 5 is expected to have a full HD panel, this should explain its higher benchmark results. Even this way, at an expected price of less than $500 USD, Meizu PRO 5 still promises to be a worthy competitor for Samsung's phablet. We will probably get back to it next week at launch, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
