A few days ago, Meizu made an official announcement confirming that the highly anticipated Meizu 20 Pro would be powered by the latest and most powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. This news was further substantiated by benchmarking scores on popular platforms such as Geekbench 5 and AnTuTu.
Now, exciting news has surfaced that both the Pro and the standard Meizu 20 models have been spotted on the Geekbench 6 database. Geekbench 6 is a new version of the popular benchmarking tool, and it offers more detailed performance analysis than previous versions. These benchmarks have revealed that both smartphones are indeed utilizing the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip, which goes by the codename “Kalama.”
According to the latest benchmarking results, both the Meizu 20 and Meizu 20 Pro models achieved nearly identical scores in both single-core and multi-core performance tests. This indicates that both devices are utilizing the same powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset and 12GB of RAM.
It’s worth noting that in previous benchmarking tests, the devices were identified by model numbers such as “m2391.” However, this time around, the phones were identified by their actual names, providing us with a clearer indication of the specific models being tested.
Although the Meizu 20 and 20 Pro models achieved similar benchmark scores, the Pro model is set to offer several features that set it apart from its standard counterpart. Recent teasers have revealed some exciting details about the Pro model’s advanced specifications.
One of the most noteworthy features of the Meizu 20 Pro is its 10-bit QHD+ 1-120Hz display. This Samsung E6 LTPO panel boasts a peak brightness of 1,800 nits, making it one of the brightest displays available on the market.
In addition to its impressive display, the Meizu 20 Pro will also feature a powerful 50MP camera sensor with OIS. This sensor boasts a size of 1/1.56″, which is larger than most smartphone camera sensors on the market, making it ideal for capturing high-quality images and videos. Another notable feature of the Meizu 20 Pro is its 5,000mAh battery, which will support 50W wireless charging.
While the Meizu 20 Pro has garnered more attention with its advanced specifications, there has been limited information regarding the standard Meizu 20. However, recent rumors suggest that the device will be designed as a gaming phone, featuring a 144Hz 10-bit display.
One of the unique features of the Meizu 20 Pro is its support for the CCC 3.0 digital key standard for cars. This functionality is part of the tight integration between Meizu and its parent company, which has a strong focus on electric vehicles (EVs). With this feature, users of the Meizu 20 Pro will be able to use their smartphone as a digital key to unlock and start their car.
It’s unclear at this time whether the standard Meizu 20 will offer the same functionality. While the two devices may have similar specifications in some areas, it’s possible that Meizu has reserved certain features for its premium flagship device, the Meizu 20 Pro. However, we may learn more about the differences between the two devices as more information becomes available.
Meizu has yet to announce an official release date for its upcoming smartphones. However, it’s likely that the company will return to the market before the end of March, given that it has already started taking blind pre-orders for its new devices. While the pre-orders are charging only 1 yuan and have already garnered over 300,000 registrations.
The current blind pre-orders are set to end on March 14. So, we can expect to receive new teasers and details about the devices in the near future, providing us with a better idea of what to expect from Meizu’s latest offerings.
