Meizu Pro 5 Benchmark Result Crushes Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Uses Similar Chipset

Meizu has yet to officially introduce its new Pro 5 flagship, but details on the smartphone's specs have already emerged online in the last couple of days.

The Chinese company announced a while ago that it has no intention of using Qualcomm's 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor inside its Pro 5 smartphone. Instead, Meizu Pro 5 will be equipped with Samsung's Exynos 7420 chipset, which is also embedded into Galaxy Note 5 phablet. Moreover, Meizu has decided that it would be cool to launch another version of the Pro 5, which will use a different processor inside, MediaTek's deca-core Helio X20. The latter is said to power HTC's One A9 Aero smartphone as well. Also known as Meizu NIUX, the Pro 5 has been recently spotted at Geekbench, GforGames reports.

Since we already know the smartphone will pack an Exynos 7420 or MediaTek Helio X20 processor, let's take a look at the overall performance of the smartphone tested at Geekbench.

MediaTek's deca-core Helio X20 chipset is even more powerful
Based on the scores achieved by Meizu NIUX, it looks like the smartphone will be slightly more powerful than Samsung's Galaxy Note 5. Meizu's unannounced smartphone scored 1550 points on the single-core test and 5593 on the multi-core test, which is higher than Galaxy Note 5 that achieved 1490 points for single-core and 4950 points for multi-core tests. That is rather curious since the Pro 5 version tested in Geekbench is using the same Exynos 7420 chipset and the same amount of RAM (4GB). Other highlights of the Meizu Pro 5 listed at Geekbench include Android 5.1.1 Lollipop operating system and MIUI 7 on top of it.

Meizu Pro 5 is expected to be unveiled in China on September 25, along with a Go Pro camera. No word on pricing option and availability yet, but we expect more details on the matter to surface in the coming days.
