Meizu To publish MX5 & M1 Note 2
If this rumor turns out to be true, then June will be a full month for Meizu. According to a new report out of China, the company is planning to hold two separate events next month, during which it will unveil two new smartphones.
The first one should happen on June 2, which is when we’re supposedly going to see a new version of the M1 Note become official. This will awkwardly be called M1 Note 2, and it will come with a Full HD touchscreen just like its predecessor.
However, the new M1 Note will also get a fingerprint sensor embedded in its Home key. Because of this, production costs will go up, so expect the M1 Note 2 to be more expensive than the original (which will probably stick around, since it’s barely six months old at this point).
Next up, at a dedicated gathering on June 30 Meizu is said to announce the MX5, its next flagship offering. This will come with a unibody construction (sans removable back cover), and an oval Home button also housing a fingerprint scanner. The lower front side of the MX5 may actually be portrayed by the image you can see above.
The MX5 could be powered by MediaTek’s MT6795 chipset, which comes with an octa-core CPU clocked at up to 2.2 GHz.
