Ahead of Meizu's official announcement on the upcoming flagship Pro 5 smartphone, new leaks and rumours have painted an appealing picture. The rumoured Meizu Pro 5 is expected to be launched on 23 September at an event in Beijing.

Amid recent leaks and rumours about the device, the latest revelation puts Pro 5 smartphone in the forefront as it beats the powerful Samsung Galaxy Note 5.

The leaked GeekBench scores of the rumoured Pro 5 smartphone outbid the average score of Galaxy Note 5 in both single and multi-core benchmarks. According to GforGames, Meizu Pro 5 will be powered by Samsung's in-house Exynos 7420 chipset based on 14nm architecture, which is same as Galaxy Note 5. The same processor yields different results on high-end smartphones by Meizu and Samsung.

Looking at the GeekBench database, Meizu Pro 5, codenamed NIUX, scores an impressive 1,550 points in its single-core tests and 5,593 in multi-core. Comparing these scores with Samsung's flagship, GeekBench listing shows an average score for Galaxy Note 5 is at 1,490 points and 4,950 points in single and multi-core tests respectively.

The difference in the scores despite running the same processors could be because Meizu Pro 5 features a Full HD resolution display compared to Galaxy Note 5's QHD screen. Both smartphones are backed by 4GB RAM. It is safe to assume that the graphic card in use is Mali-T760MP8 GPU, GforGames added.

Meizu Pro 5 has been in the news for a while now. Based on what we have heard so far, it is expected to carry a 5.5-inch screen, 32GB storage, 21MP primary camera and a price tag of around CNY 3,000 ($470 or Rs 31,000).

We will get the official details on the handset on 23 September when Meizu finally plans to unfold the mystery. We will be attending the event to bring you live coverage of the Meizu Go Pro launch.
