Meizu M3 Max Appears on Geekbench. Helio P10

The Meizu M3 Max is a large screen phone expected to launch on September 5. The phone is expected to be Meizu’s take on the Xiaomi Mi Max.

Earlier this week, we reported that the Meizu M3 Max is going to be the first phone to launch with a Helio P20 SoC but a benchmarking result of a phone with the Meizu M3 Max name instead shows a MT6755M a.k.a. Helio P10.

While this is surprising, we want to believe that there is still a possibility of the Helio P20 chip showing up in the device. First, this benchmark result shows it was updated on August 22 which is about a week before the P20 news. There might have been a major change within a week with respect to the chip.

Another way to look at it is the fact that there are two versions coming out: a stylus-sporting unit and a base version without the mPen. It is possible that the version with the stylus may be getting the new chip. These are the reasons why we are not ruling out the possibility of the Meizu M3 Max launching with the processor. These are speculations though and we can only hope it turns out to be correct.

The launch of the Meizu M3 Max is said to be in Beijing on the 5th of September.
