Geekbench Leaks Meizu M5S – Solid Performer, but No Android Nougat on Board

Meizu M5S

After making a series of appearances at China’s TENAA and 3C, it was evident that the Meizu M5S is just around the corner.

In a new Geekbench report, the Meizu M5S has just made an appearance showcasing some of its basic specs. Apparently, the phone will be a midranger, but a recent GSM Arena report indicated that there will be several variants of the same phone available.

The leaked Meizu M5S will ship with a RAM of 2GB alongside a MediaTek MT6753 octa-core processor that is clocked at a speed of 1.3GHz. While Google has already confirmed that Android 7.0 Nougat is available for Android OEMs, Meizu seems to be lagging behind the likes of HTC and Huawei, who already have new phones in the market powered by the new Nougat OS.

What this means is that the Meizu M5S will ship with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box and as far as an update to the new version is concerned, it remains to be seen.

According to GSM Arena, the 2GB variant of the Meizu M5S is the base model. Looking at what Geekbench has in store, it appears that the phone is not such a bad performer. Apparently, the M5S managed a score of 568 on a single-core test while the multi-core test yielded 2584 points.

In terms of other specs, the Meizu M5S is rumored to be carrying a 5.2-inch HD IPS LCD screen, but the resolution is still unclear. As noted earlier, the phone should come in three variants of 2GB, 3GB, and 4GB. Although not indicated in the latest benchmark, the phone will reportedly ship with a base storage of 16GB followed by 32GB while the premium version will come with 64GB.

As for the cameras, the rear of the Meizu M5S will feature a 13MP lens while the front will come with a 5MP sensor. Don’t expect flagship specs such as OIS or even PDAF, but you can be sure of a LED flash on the back camera. The phone will also come with a decent battery of 2930mAh capacity and feature four color variants of Silver, Rose Gold, Gold, and Grey.

While there is no mentioned release date of the Meizu phone, it shouldn’t be long before it comes out, especially now that it has already passed China’s main smartphone certification bodies. The phone’s wider availability (outside China), as well as the price, are also yet to be confirmed.
