Meizu officially unveiled the Meizu 15 and 15 Plus alongside the Meizu M15 on April 22 and both models came with some dose of surprises in the design and specifications. Without argument, the Meizu 15 Plus is the flagship product, sporting a Samsung Exynos 8895 chipset. While the Meizu 15 features a Snapdragon 660 chipset, thus setting up as one of the premium midrange phones released this year.
The AnTuTu benchmark results of both models have now surfaced and as would be expected, the score of both models are pretty impressive. The Meizu 15 pooled a total of 134,170 points which is consistent with the score of other models running on Qualcomm’s SD660 chipset. The CPU usage and other parameters measured on the benchmark test also show some impressive results. On the other hand, the Meizu 15 Plus powered by last year’s Exynos 8895 chipset scored 184,706points. This is also consistent with the score of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 models which are the only models running on the Exynos 8895 chip.
As a reminder, the Meizu 15 and 15 Plus both feature a similar design and the major difference between them is the processor. The models both have a 12MP+20MP dual camera setup as well as built-in horizontal linear motor mEngine, extremely narrow frame and what could be regarded as the world’s smallest fingerprint recognition module. The 15 models equally come with a stainless steel aluminium body and run on the new Flyme 7 OS based on Android Nougat, unfortunately. The prices of both models are also quite impressive. Meizu 15 is priced at ¥2499 ($396) for the 4GB + 64GB model and ¥2799 ($444) for the 4GB + 128GB model. The Meizu 15 Plus is ¥2999 ($476) for the 6GB+64GB and ¥3299 ($523) for the 6GB+128GB model.
