If you have been following Meizu since its start, you would know that the company initially specialized in music players. So, its not surprising to see many of the company’s flagship smartphones boast of Hi-Fi audio. And today, thanks to a new post from Meizu’s VP Li Nan, we know that the upcoming Meizu Pro 5 flagship will feature Hi-Fi chip. Alongside this new flagship smartphone, the company will also release its new headsets, the EP-31.
Unlike the Xiaomi Piston, which is targeted at the affordable maket, the Meizu EP-31 headsets are said to be targeted at the high-end audiophiles. The pricing is said to be somewhere around 499 Yuan. While you can expect the company to bundle these headphone along with the Pro 5 flagship for a slightly higher price tag, it will most likely be available for purchase separately for the above mention price, soon after the announcement.
As for the flagship Pro 5, the phone is said to come with Exynos 7420 chipset inside with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. CEO has confirmed the presence of a 5.7-inch 1080p display. As for camera, you can expect a 21MP shooter at the back and a 5MP front facing camera. Given its flagship placement, expect the battery to be at least 3000mAh.
Overall, the Pro 5 is a powerful handset. With the Hi-Fi chip inside and Hi-Fi headsets, the phone should particularly attract a lot of audiophiles. Pricing is said to be above 3000 Yuan ($470). Since we are just one day away from the official launch, lets wait for more details. [source]
