The design of the Ubuntu-based Meizu PRO 5 smartphone is similar to the Meizu MX5 Pro, which was powered by FlyMe Android-based operating system. The device features a 5.7-inch display with 1920 × 1080 screen resolution and is equipped with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 screen protection. The device has a crystal clear AMOLED display and will be powered by Samsung Exynos 7420 octa-core processor.

Meizu PRO 5 smartphone also supports fingerprint scanning. The device will come in two versions, the 3 GB of RAM with 32 GB internal storage model and the 4 GB of RAM with 64 GB storage. Moreover, the device can be further expanded via a microSD card and also supports two SIM cards slot.

The Ubuntu mobile operating system is well designed and will come with a few pre-installed apps such as Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, Here Maps and Weather. These applications will take most of the phone's usage. In addition, the phone will also come with Ubuntu store support. It is unlikely that Android or iOS apps will be compatible with this device.

Ubuntu is a newbie player in the mobile operating system market, and it will get more apps if it gains more popularity.
