Special Meizu MX5 feature spilled days before unveil

Chinese phone-maker Meizu has a big announcement coming later this month on June 30. We’re expecting the company to announce the MX5, it’s latest flagship device, and now we’re getting an early look at the device.

A new leak via GizmoChina reveals a sleek metal frame with curved edges. It looks good, though Meizu definitely isn’t pushing too far from the current trends when it comes to smartphone design. You also get a big home button in front, which should pack a built-in fingerprint sensor.

As for the specs, Meizu’s MX5 is expected to offer a 5.5-inch 1080p display, an octa-core MediaTek processor, a 20-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel shooter up front and 3GB of RAM. This new leak also reveals that the phone will feature mCharge technology, which can bring the battery up to 25 percent battery life with 10 minutes of charging or 60 percent in 40 minutes.

The device looks set to debut next week on June 30. Rumor has it the MX5 will cost just 1799 Yuan (about $290), though it’s not expected to launch in the U.S. Still, for Chinese shoppers, Meizu’s new phone should be a pretty compelling option.
