Meizu's upcoming flagship has been making round for quite a while. It rumoured to sport the Samsung Exynos 7420 SoC under the hood.
Meizu previously used Exynos SoC in their smartphones but later they shifted allegiance to the MediaTek. In fact the MX3 was the last smartphone sporting an Exynos chip, so the upcoming flagship from the company using a Samsung FinFet chip has garnered a large amount of interest among fans and media alike.
However a new listing spotted on GeekBench made it decidedly clear that the upcoming Meizu Pro 5 will indeed come with a Exynos 7420 SoC. The listing shows a device codenamed the Meizu NUIX with a score of 1550 in Single Core and 5593 in Multicore.
In case you are familiar to GeekBench you can recollect that these scores are markedly higher than the ones recorded by the Samsung Galaxy Note5 using the exact same SoC. The listing further reveals that the Meizu Pro 5 aka NIUX will feature 4GB of RAM and will run on Android Lollipop 5.1.
The reason for the higher GeekBench score is presumably because of the lower resolution display. This is in accordance with previous leaks too, which stated that the Meizu Pro 5 aka NIUX will feature a Full HD (1920x1080) panel.
The Note5 on the other hand sports a QHD AMOLED panel. Further the difference in the UI may have played a roll too. While the Meizu Pro 5 runs on the feather light Flyme OS, the Note5 utilizes the RAM hungry TouchWiz.
The Meizu Pro 5 is also tipped to come in a MediaTek 6797 SoC. In terms of storage the device will come in 32GB/64GB variants. The optics on the other hand will be handled by a 21MP and 5MP rear and front cameras.
