Meizu MX5 Rumors: 5.5-Inch 2K Display, MediaTek CPU and Crazy Nokia-Made 41MP Camera

Earlier today we just showed you a concept image of Meizu’s upcoming flagship, the MX5. Since the MX4 was launched back in September, we dare say we have quite a few months ahead before seeing the MX5 make a debut into the wild.

In all possibility the handset will probably launch somewhere in Q4 2015, but even so Chinese website MyDrivers has apparently managed to get its hands on the preliminary specs of the upcoming Meizu handset. According to the leak, the Meizu MX5 will arrive with a 5.5-inch QHD display (2560 x 1440 pixel resolution and bizarre 5:3 aspect ratio) and a fingerprint scanner. It’s unclear at the moment whether Meizu will continue to position the scanner on the back of the device, although a new device might bring a new design arrangement into the picture.

We’re also told the device will be powered by a MediaTek chip, although the report doesn’t mention which one we should expect. We could speculate that Meizu will end up using the MT6795 platform which bundles some impressive capabilities, like the ability to shoot super slow-motion 1080p video at 480fps. The handset will be among those monsters which will pack a hefty 4GB of RAM, so it should run pretty swiftly. Another interesting piece of information is that the handset will be accompanied by a colossal 41MP camera with a Nokia PureView sensor running the shots. This part sounds a little wild, but at some point rumors emerged saying Nokia and Meizu are looking to partner up for the development of a handset, although the tidbit later proved to be a fake one.

On top of that, consider that the MX4 and MX4 Pro are both loaded with a 21MP Sony IMX220 camera, so Meizu will have to almost double the capacity with the next-gen flagship. Will it be able to do that? It remains to be seen. In related news, the Chinese device maker is known to have taken a partnership with major Asian retailer Alibaba which will develop an OS for its handsets. Meizu is also expected to be an important presence at MWC 2015 in Barcelona, where it will launch an Ubuntu-powered smartphone.
