High-end smartphones seem to keep getting bigger and bigger, and while some companies put out “mini” versions of their flagship phones, the smaller models usually skimp on the specs.

That’s kind of true with the new Meizu Pro 5 Mini. It doesn’t quite have all the same hardware as the Meizu Pro 5 that launched in September. But it still has some pretty impressive hardware for a 4.7 inch smartphone.

Chinese phone maker Meizu hasn’t officially introduced the Mini yet, but European retailer eFox spilled the beans with a product page for the phone.

The phone reportedly has a 4.7 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display, a MediaTek Helio X20 deca-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 16MP rear camera, a 5MP front camera, a microSD card slot for up to 128GB of removable storage, and a 3,050 mAh battery.

The dual SIM phone supports 4G LTE on GSM networks as well as WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS. It has a fingerprint sensor and the phone ships with Android 5.1 Lollipop software.

Sure, the 5.7 inch Meizu Pro 5 has a 21MP camera, and support for up to 4GB of RAM. But it also has a bigger screen, which some folks will see as a plus, while others see as a minus. The larger model also has a Samsung Exynos 7420 octa-core processor instead of a MediaTek chip.

In Europe it looks like the phone is priced at € 360, which is about $392 US.

  1. The Meizu Pro 5 doesn’t have a resolution of 2560 x 1440!!! Do your research proper!!

  2. 360€? LOL, is this a joke? Mi4c costs 80€ less and offers more…

  3. It’s highly unlikely that they will be including the Helio X20 on a mini.

    1. Think so too, it’s just rumors as of now. And that this page actually got the specifications of the already released Meizu Pro 5 wrong, makes it more unbelievable.

  4. lol that retailer is nobody that would get specs ahead of time,they just list the so called specs rumored a few days ago and already reported on by sites that have no filter.

  5. The Sony Xperia compact models are a much better example of putting the HW of a big phone in a smaller package…

    1. The US equivalent price is around $299 once you adjust for no sales tax and the usual disparity in pricing. Not too maxi for those specs.
