Meizu unveiled the 'normal version' of its MX4 flagship smartphone at the beginning of this month. Yet there are more variants of the MX4 in the works - this has been known for quite a while through various leaks and rumors. At least an MX4 Pro is coming, but that could even be joined by a 'Mini' iteration of some sort.
If you're wondering what kind of specs the ultra high-end MX4 Pro might sport, then this is for you. A purported spec list for the device has leaked in Chinese media, and you can see it to the left.
According to this still unconfirmed document, the Meizu MX4 Pro will come with a 5.36-inch touchscreen with 2,560x1,536 resolution, the same 20.7 MP rear camera with LED flash as the 'vanilla' MX4, and a 13 MP front-facing camera. This would be a huge upgrade in terms of pixels compared to the 2 MP unit on the MX4.
The MX4 Pro will reportedly be powered by a Samsung Exynos 5430 chipset, which will feature an octa-core CPU. This will have four Cortex-A17 cores clocked at up to 2.6 GHz, and four Cortex-A15 cores clocked at up to 2.1 GHz. Aiding the top notch SoC will apparently be no less than 4GB of RAM.
However, as per Samsung's official unveiling of the Exynos 5430, this particular chipset uses a combination of Cortex-A15 and Cortex-A7 cores. The "Cortex-A17" in the leaked image could be a typo, but then so would the clock speeds in it. That's because the Cortex-A7 cores are the battery-friendly ones in this big.LITTLE configuration, and they are always clocked lower than the higher-performance cores (in this case Cortex-A15). So either there's a double typo here, or maybe this document can't really be trusted that much.
Given all of this, and the fact that we've only seen the Exynos 5430 go up to 1.8 GHz for its Cortex-A15 cores and 1.3 GHz for the Cortex-A7 cluster, we're also inclined to take the "4GB of RAM" claim with a hefty dose of salt.
Anyway, moving on, the Meizu MX4 Pro is also said to come with 16, 32, or 64GB of built-in storage, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, and support for 4G LTE. Its dimensions are rumored to be 143 x 74.1 x 7.9 mm, which would make it slightly smaller than the MX4 in every way.
