Meizu M5 Note has just been certified by TENNA in China showing off its innards. The unibody metal smartphone would pack a 5.5-inch 1080p display covered in 2.5D glass and the aging Helio P10 octa-core processor powering everything. You also get a 13MP rear camera with PDAF and a 5MP front unit for selfies.
The M5 Note would also come with a massive 4000 mAh battery which is now becoming the norm with most Chinese manufacturers in this space. There will be several storage and memory options to choose from including 16 GB storage with 2GB RAM up to 64GB storage with 4GB RAM. Storage is expandable on the device with the hybrid dual-SIM slot and all daily chores are performed by Android Marshmallow based FlymeOS. Again just like previous-gen Meizu smartphones, we are going to see the return of the fingerprint sensor-enabled home button which can be customized.
Meizu has also begun teasing the launch of the M5 Note on December 6th but there is no word on pricing, as yet. The design of the phone is similar to the M3 note right down to the antenna lines on the back. Another Meizu smartphone making the rounds is the Meizu X which is expected to launch in the next couple of days.
The company had earlier launched the budget Meizu M3s in India priced at Rs. 7999 to take on the Redmi 3S, but it failed to gain much traction. Even though the smartphone packs decent specs, people's aversion to MediaTek chipsets and their e-commerce partner, Snapdeal, may have added to Meizu's trouble. Let's see if any of the new Meizu devices do make it to India anytime soon.
