5.7″ Meizu Pro 5 is official with Exynos 7420

The Meizu Pro 5 has just been made official at an event in China. The company has dropped the “MX” naming convention for its latest flagship and has produced a proper monster in a metal shell.

The Meizu Pro 5 features a 5.7″ Super AMOLED screen of 1080p resolution. On top, the company is using a 2.5D curved glass for extra smooth swipes. At the back, there’s a 21MP camera powered by the Sony IMX230 sensor, which measures 1/2.4 inches in size. At the front there’s a 5MP snapper.

Under the hood, the Samsung Exynos 7420 chipset gives the phone some serious brawn and you can have either 3GB or 4GB of RAM depending if you go for the 32GB or 64GB model, respectively. In either case, there’s a microSD card slot for further expanding the onboard storage.

Meizu has thrown in a USB type C port on the bottom of the phone. Combined with the mCharge fast charging technology, the phone’s 3050mAh battery goes from 0-65% in just 30 minutes.

Flyme 5 on top of Android 5.1 Lollipop is what powers the Pro 5. Meizu also promises Hi-Fi sound experience thanks to the new ES9018 signal processor and OPA1612 headphone amplifier.

The Meizu Pro 5 goes on sale October 12. The 32GB/3GB of RAM version will cost $439 (CNY2800), while the 64GB/4GB of RAM will retail for $490 (CNY3100).
