Meizu MX5 Shows Impressive Performance in Leaked Benchmark

Chinese company Meizu is expected to unveil its next flagship smartphone, the MX5, on June 30. A launch event has already been confirmed for that date and invitations have been send to the local media.

We also know that the MX5 will feature a metal body, courtesy to some pictures that leaked a few days ago. Last but not least, the latest rumors claim Meizu's high-end smartphone will be launched in China for just 1,799 yuan, which is about $290. Some of the phone's specs have been leaked as well, but these leaks haven't been followed by any confirmations from the Chinese company. Well, it looks like a benchmark of the Meizu MX5 that's been recently spotted in Geekbench shows the smartphone is capable of great multi-core performance. Unfortunately, things are a bit different when it comes to single-core performance, but rest assured that you won't experience any lags while browsing the phone's menu.

Meizu MX5 will be equipped with a 64-bit octa-core MediaTek MT6795T Helio X10 processor, which scored no less than 5352 points in the multi-core benchmark.

Single-core benchmark results are a bit behind the competition
That's close to Samsung's Exynos 7420, which is considered one of the best processors available on the market. Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 is nowhere near this performance and that's probably due to the chipset's overheating issues. When it comes to single-core performance, the Meizu MX5 shows disappointing benchmark results, way below Samsung's Exynos 7420.

Nevertheless, it's good to know that Meizu MX5 will perform decently in any condition, thanks to it high-end specs sheet. Speaking of which, the MX5 is expected to pack 3GB of RAM and a 20-megapixel camera on the back. The smartphone is said to feature a 5.5-inch capacitive touchscreen display that supports full HD (1080p) resolution, and a non-removable 3,150 mAh battery.

Elephone P9000 Could Be First to Arrive with MediaTek Helio X20 Deca-Core

Things are getting pretty wacky in the mobile chipset ecosystem. Not so long ago, MediaTek announced the advent of a deca-core silicone piece which would bear the name of Helio X20.

This is a 20nm chipset equipped with a pair of ARM Cortex-A72 cores sustaining the heavy duty operations, four ARM Cortex-A53 managing the medium load, while four Cortex-A53 cores will deal with the low-power operations. Apparently, MediaTek is striving for a chip that’s energy efficient and not a benchmark ripping behemoth, although at least on paper, two Cortex-A72 cores seem quite menacing. Anyway, MediaTek is poised to release the Helio X20 sometime in the fourth quarter of 2015, and now a new report coming out of WebCusp reveals that the Elephone P9000 could end up being the first device to take advantage of the 10-core monster.

The chipset inside the phone will work in combination with an ARM Mali-T800 series GPU clocked at over 800MHz with 4GB of RAM on board (note that the MT6797 is limited to LPDDR3 RAM, however). The Elephone P9000 will also take advantage of a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 32GB of expandable storage, a 20.7MP main camera (probably made by Sony), a 8MP selfie snapper, and a 3,100 mAh battery under the hood.

The source goes on to mention that the phone could go on to make a debut on the market for $500 / €439 a pop. Expect the phone to debut in October with Android 5.1 Lollipop on board.
