A new smartphone has emerged sporting flagship specs just like the Meizu Pro 5 – but in a smaller 4.7 inch screen.
The Meizu Pro 5 mini is available via a third party retailer and goes for Rs. 26,000 (roughly 79,000 Naira).
South Korean company, Meizu, had weeks ago announced the arrival of the Meizu Pro 5, but its availability was delayed till November 2015.
The delay was said to be caused due to a flood at the company’s factory in Guangdong. The company’s representatives explained that the factory affected by the floods was used to manufacture the unibody chassis of the Meizu Pro 5 smartphone.
Meizu hasn’t officially introduced the Mini yet, but European retailer eFox spilled the beans with a product page for the phone.
The phone as stated comes in a 4.7 inch screen with 1920 x 1080 pixel display. It is powered by a MediaTek Helio X20 deca-core processor and 3GB of RAM.
The Meizu Pro 5 Mini runs Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box with the company’s Flyme OS. It packs 32GB of inbuilt storage and support expandable storage via microSD card (up to 128GB).
The smartphone also sports a 16 megapixel rear camera which is quite capable of taking high quality pictures. Its 5 megapixel front camera is well suitable for taking selfies and making video calls.
The Meizu Pro 5 also comes with fingerprint sensor, dual SIM slot and it supports 4G LTE on GSM networks as well as WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS.
In comparison, the Meizu Pro 5 has a 5.7 inch screen with a higher 2560 x 1440 pixel display. It sports a 21MP camera, and support for up to 4GB of RAM. The larger model is powered by a Samsung Exynos 7420 octa-core processor instead of a MediaTek chip.
However it also has a bigger screen, which some may see as a plus. Other people who see it as a minus will probably opt for the Meizu Pro 5 Mini.
