Rumours of Meizu’s next flagship phone being powered by Samsung’s Exynos 7420 processor first appeared earlier this month. A screenshot showing the AnTuTu benchmark score of a Meizu device called NIUX with the Exynos 7420 SoC had leaked on Weibo. As per the screenshot, the device managed to get a score of 69000. However, the latest AnTuTu benchmark shows that the device is capable of a score of 75429.
Meizu’s president and co-founder, Bai Yongxiang had earlier said that 2K resolution on smartphone’s weren’t logical, and 1080p resolution was enough. The company’s VP, Li Nan, posted renders of the phone and would later confirm the name of the flagship phone.
