Unannounced Meizu M5 Note comes out of hiding, hits Geekbench with Helio P10 processor


Meizu’s entry-level and mid-range smartphones are pretty popular in China, thanks to their design and lower priced tags. The Note lineup from the Chinese brand currently includes the M1 Note, the M2 Note, and the newly launched M3 Note. Now, the company is prepping for the introduction of a new device in its Note lineup: the M5 Note. The upcoming smartphone hasn’t been announced yet, but it is already showing signs of its existence. We spotted the Meizu M5 Note in Geekbench’s database, and the information sheds light on some of its specifications.

Meizu M5 Note Specifications

Meizu_M5_Note_GeekbenchThe Meizu M5 Note will come packed with a MediaTek MT6755 processor, which is also known as Helio P10. The processor seems to be running at 1GHz clock speed, but the 28nm SoC with ARM Cortex-A53 CPU cores and an ARM Mali-T860 MP2 GPU is capable of reaching up to a peak speed of 2GHz. The smartphone appears to be running Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) operating system, but will run Flyme OS out-of-the-box.

The MediaTek Helio P10 SoC is paired to 3GB of RAM as per Geekbench. Prior to this Geekbench listing, two new Meizu smartphones passed 3C certification in China a couple of days ago. These two smartphones will have model numbers M621 and M682, and the former could be the M5 Note. The Meizu M3 Note comes with Model no M681, which is currently closer to the model number of the M5 Note.


The Geekbench listing and the 3C certification documents reveal that a new smartphone from Meizu is currently in the pipeline. Currently, no new details regarding the launch are known yet, and the company hasn’t scheduled any launch event in China. Meizu had announced the colourful M5 smartphone and the high-end Pro 6s smartphone in China with some competing specifications.
