We have already heard from the company itself that Meizu will launch a new device on June 30th. The Chinese smartphone maker has released a few teasers, which include a “Full Metal Jacket” moniker. This clearly implies that the upcoming device, which will most likely be a MX5, will be made out of metal.
This time around we have some fresh leaked photos, which show the device’s metal shell. It confirms the possibility that the Meizu MX5 will be made out of metal, which should give the premium look and feel as well as extra sturdiness.
What is more, we can clearly see that there is a huge cutout for an oval shaped home button. This implies the fact that the MX5 will boast a fingerprint scanner, which has become a trend among Chinese smartphone manufacturers.
Moreover, the rumours suggest that the Meizu MX5 will spot some decent specs. It starts will a 5.5-inch 1080p screen. Also, under the hood there will be an octa-core MT6795T chip, clocked at 2.3GHz along with 3GB of RAM. What is more, the storage capacity is not disclosed, but it is said that there will be a microSD card slot, which supports storage expansion up to 128GB.
Finally, the device is said to have a 20MP camera on the back (most likely a Sony sensor) and a 3150mAh battery (non-removable) will be keeping the lights on.
As far as the pricing goes, Meizu is ready to put some more pressure for competitors. The starting price of the Meizu MX5 will be 1799 Yuan (about $290) in China. We will have to wait for the official event to find out when the device will go on sale. Stay tuned to Gizmochina as we will be covering all the news regarding that. [source]
