As of today Meizu has finally released the Meizu MX5 Pro – or actually “Meizu Pro 5”.
It has a 5.7″ AMOLED display, featuring FHD resolution with 387 PPI per screen – which is a bit less compared to the 401 PPI of the MX5.
Also new is the 21.16MP rear camera.
However, the real dealbreaker is under the hood.
The Pro 5 is powered by an Exynos 7420 featuring up to 4GB RAM depending on the chosen model, just like the Mali 760 GPU. Thanks to the Exynos 7420, Meizu finally went back to use external sound chips. In this case the Pro 5 features an ESS ES9018K2M and a TI OPA1612. Also quite handy is the microSD card slot, which supports up to 128GB or can simply be used as a second nanoSIM slot, giving the Pro 5 dual-sim capabilities.
A quite handy feature is the USB Type-C port, offering greater transfer and charging speeds, which might be required for the only 3050mAh battery.
According to Meizu though a battery charge of 65% can be reached within 30 minutes. Against all previous rumors the Pro 5 will be the first device to be delivered with Flyme 5.
All in all the 168g and 7.5mm thin Pro 5 makes an interesting look. However potential buyers should be a bit patient the next few weeks and wait for the first responses to avoid wasting almost 395€ (440$) for the 32GB with 3GB RAM and 450€ (505$) for the 64GB with 4GB RAM as seen on the MX4 and MX4 Pro.
A little side highlight was Meizu’s new logo:
