Meizu has announced today its plans for a new sub-brand, called PRO. The new line of products will comrpise of higher end phones, starting with the Meizu PRO 5 which is going to be unveiled on September 25th, which is two weeks from now.
The single detail that is known about the Meizu PRO 5 is that the device will run Snapdragon 810. We’ll know more details regarding the device in two weeks. Meizu’s VP Li Nan said the following during the event:
“Many of the domestic flagship devices are using Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, but the user experience sucks, consumers are often being fooled, sadly, no one in the industry is ready to tell the truth, but Meizu hopes that by publishing this sub-brand ‘PRO’ they change this status. A lot of consumer high-end smartphone OEMs are blindly following the trend, rather than to really solve the fundamental problems”.
According to rumors, the PRO 5 will feature a premium metallic design and either a MediaTek Helio X20 MT6797 deca-core processor or a Samsung Exynos 7420 one. Other rumored specs are a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 3 or 4GB RAM, 32GB storage, a 21MP camera, and a 3000 mAh battery.
