Meizu is coming out with a new sub-brand of devices, dubbed PRO. Not to be confused with the MX Pro series, the PRO will be a stand-alone brand, with the first device to be launched on September 25, dubbed the Meizu PRO 5.
Little is known about the Meizu PRO 5, but rumors suggest that the phone will sport a MediaTek Helio X20 MT6797 deca-core processor (the same one that’s rumored to be in Acer’s Predator 6 smartphone) or a Samsung Exynos 7420 which currently powers the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6, along with a 5.5-inch full HD display, 3 or 4GB of RAM, 21-megapixel camera and a 3000mAh battery in a premium, metal design.
Meizu’s new sub-brand is a reaction to the high-end Android devices that currently permeate the market that don’t deliver the experience that consumers are asking for, according to Meizu VP Li Nan.
“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”.
