This past summer MEIZU announced a new flagship smartphone, the MEIZU MX5 with a 5.5-inch Full HD display, octa-core processing power unit and Lollipop operating system. Following on the footsteps of this bad boy, in September, MEIZU introduced a phablet-sized device, brother to MX5, dubbed MEIZU PRO 5.
The MEIZU Pro 5 is a beast in almost every aspect. The phablet packs a 5.7-inch Full HD display with 2.5D Gorilla Glass on top of it for protection, it packs Samsung’s Exynos 7420 octa-core processor (4 Cortex-A57 cores clocked at 2.1GHz + 4 Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.5GHz), Mali-T760 GPU, 3GB of RAM and 32/64 GB of ROM (built-in storage).
Other specs include a 21MP camera on the back with f/2.2 aperture, 5MP front-facing camera, a 3,050 mAh battery, dual nano SIM slots (dual standby) and it runs on what MEIZU calls Flyme 4.5 OS, which is based on Google’s Android 5.1 version.
The MEIZU Pro 5 offers high-performance and premium metal design at an affordable price, if we campare it to other similar high-end devices. The Pro 5 is available online globally through Gearbest retailer, where the Silver or the Dark Grey with 32GB storage variants cost $479.
