Meizu’s new flagship phone suffered set backs last week but it looks like the delay will be a short one.

It was reported that the Meizu Pro 5 would suffer a month long delay, due to adverse weather conditions caused by Typhoon Mujigae. Mujigae killed 11 people in China and caused great damage particularly to the Guangdong province.

In a statement from Meizu, floods and damages to its factories in Guangdong is not the reason why there will be a delay, the delay is all due to the Pro 5’s NFC cover. Meizu will now rectify the metal back cover of the Pro 5 and have stated that the new flagship will only be delayed six days.

Meizu are also offering compensation to customers who have ordered the Pro 5, which will cost the company $1.5 million:

  • All costumers, regardless of version of the Pro 5, will receive an accident insurance of CNY 199 for free
  • Those who bought the 32GB version will receive a free headset worth 129 CNY in addition
  • 64GB costumers are getting the headset plus 129 CNY Flyme coupons

The Meizu Pro 5 is now slated for release October 18th.
