Meizu’s upcoming flagship smartphone, the MX5, is expected to be unveiled sometime in August of this year and today two new design renders of what looks like the new device have been leaked online.
The people who leaked these new images claim that the device featured in them is indeed the Meizu MX5 but, looking at the images, there are clear differences with the device’s design when compared to older released renders of the MX5.
First off, the latest leaked renders show a borderless screen design which was not found on previous renders. Secondly, the home button on the device in the new renders is a lot thinner and similar to the one found on the Samsung Galaxy S6. Previously released renders have shown a rounder and taller home button.
The differences in these new renders make us doubt if they really feature the Meizu MX5 but if they are legitimate then a borderless design would add even more value to the upcoming smartphone. Also, the narrower home button similar to the Galaxy S6 could mean that it will now feature a fingerprint sensor.
The MX5 is rumored to feature a 5.5-inch 1080p resolution display, a 20-megapixel rear camera, a 3-megapixel front-facing camera, and is powered by a MediaTek MT6793 2.3GHz octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, expandable storage up to 128GB via microSD, and a 3150mAh battery. It’s also rumored that the MX5 will be priced at around 1999 Yuan.[source]
