Meizu has sent out invitations to a new press conference holding on November 30 at the Beijing Performing Arts Center in China. The press invite didn’t specifically indicate the launch of a particular phone model but contained the caption “Make Helio Great Again”, a term that suggests a new model equipped with a Mediatek Helio chip is on the way.
Meizu’s current line of smartphones are basically MediaTek powered with exception of the Exynos 7420 sporting Meizu Pro 5, so it becomes confusing why the company chose this caption. Again, the caption may indicate the coming of the M5 Note which had featured in several leaks of late. The device first appeared on GeekBench before it was spotted on China’s 3C website, thereafter it appeared on AnTuTu Benchmark.
It is instructive to note that the Meizu M5 Note packs a MediaTek Helio P10 (MT6755M) chipset, according to the benchmark data. Further, the device features a 1080 pixels resolution on the display which may likely be 5.5 inches in size (cannot be less than the M5’s 5.2-inch display). The device is also listed as coming along with the Mali-T860 GPU, supported by 3GB of RAM as well as 32GB of internal storage. The device is also listed as running Android Marshmallow 6.0 out-of-the-box. The M5 Note isn’t programmed to disappoint on the camera end, sporting 13MP rear camera as well as a 5MP front-facing camera for selfies.
