Meizu is starting to look mature in the smartphone market. Sure, the company's output has always been good, with high specs very much the focus. However, the Chinese brand has increasingly started building the whole package in its handsets and record sales through 2014 attest to that balance of design and hardware. The company's next flagship, the MX5 is going to continue that new remit and as you expect it will be a highly spec'd beast too.Considering the MX4 flagship launched in September 2014, the follow up MX5 is probably still has a while to go before landing on the market. However, there are already rumors about the smartphone, with Chinese tech blog MyDrivers suggesting that the MX5 will come with a 5.5-inch 2K screen. On top of that, it will get the most powerful available MediaTek processor and 4GB of RAM. The publication also adds that the MX5 will boast a fingerprint sensor, which is hardly a huge surprise considering more and more flagships are arriving with that feature. More interesting is the rumor that Nokia will be providing the camera technology and that it will be a 41 megapixel affair. Meizu and Nokia were reported to be in collaboration last month, and while rumors hinted it would be a smartphone the companies are working on, it now seems more likely it is the camera for the MX5.
