Meizu MX5 Pro Rumors, Specs: Upcoming Android Flagship Could Be as Powerful as Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge

The last few months have been great for Meizu, which is relatively a newcomer in the international Android market. But in spite its lack of experience competing with global brands like Samsung, LG and Sony, the Chinese manufacturer has done a good job luring more Android fans and enthusiasts outside of its home market.

Some of the company's notable releases this year include the Meizu m1 and m2 note handsets, the MX5 and the freshly launched the Meizu m2. Meizu prides itself in offering affordable handsets that boast impressive specs and features. However, it looks like the Chinese manufacturer is still not satisfied with its performance and wants to make the competition even tighter.

According to a recent report by Phone Arena, the Chinese company is said to be preparing a great smartphone soon. An analyst claims that the upcoming Meizu flagship could sport the famed Exynos 7420 chipset from Samsung.

In case you are wondering why that name sounds so familiar, that is because that's the exact chipset running on Samsung's most powerful devices to date - the Galaxy S6, and the Galaxy S6 Edge.

According to analyst Pan Jiutang, Meizu wanted to go to a different direction in contrast to other Chinese brands which opted for Snapdragon 810 for their flagships. Since the year began, there have been rumors that the Qualcomm chipset has problems when it comes to overheating, and since then the rumor has not stopped.

As a result, Meizu would reportedly use the 14nm process of the Samsung-made Exynos chipset to set itself apart from other Chinese brands.

However, in spite the report about the alleged chipset running on the Meizu MX5 Pro, a report states that the Chinese company may skip the device altogether, and just launch a brand new lineup. The report allegedly came from the company's VP itself, Li Nan.
