[Update: Meizu 17 Pro Too] Shows Up on Geekbench with Snapdragon 865 SoC, 8GB RAM

Meizu 17 is set to launch on 8th May alongside the Meizu 17 Pro.


Update (06/05/2020, 06:01 PM):

The second phone in the Meizu 17 series, the Meizu 17 Pro, has also made a visit to Geekbench now. According to the listing, the Meizu 17 Pro features the Android 10 operating system, and it seems to have the same processor as the Meizu 17, the Snapdragon 865. However, unlike its sibling, which comes with 8GB of RAM, the Meizu 17 Pro features 12GB RAM.

So, the Meizu 17 Pro should perform better than the Meizu 17 in the benchmark test with the help of higher RAM capacity, right? Well, that is surprisingly not the case. The Meizu 17 Pro scores 913 points in the single-core test and 2,965 points in the multi-core test, which is slightly lower than that of the Meizu 17 (See its scores below). But not by a huge margin. It could be just an optimization issue.

The Geekbench listing of the Meizu 17 clearly mentions its name, rather than its model number.

The benchmark scores of 917 points in the single-core test and 3,095 points in the multi-score test also suggest that the phone has Snapdragon 865 processor. The version that has made a visit to Geekbench has 8GB of RAM. And the device runs on the Android 10 operating system.
