Meizu has finally launched its new budget phablet, the M5 Note, which runs on pretty much the same specifications as the M3 Note including the MediaTek Helio P10 processor, a choice of 3/4 GB RAM with various storage options. In the front, we still get the 5.5-inch 1080p full-HD display which is covered in 2.5D curved glass.
Even the camera specs remain the same with a 13MP rear unit which has phase detection autofocus and a 5MP front camera for selfies. The fingerprint sensor is embedded in the home button up front and can be used to bring up recent apps, behave as the back key, and even lock the phone. It can unlock the M5 Note in under 0.2 seconds and is compatible with AliPay in China.

Connectivity options include dual-SIM (hybrid) 4G VoLTE support, WiFi, Bluetooth as well as GPS. There's no NFC on the device. Again just like the M3 Note you have, a massive 4000 mAh battery which supports fast charging with the included 18W charger which can get the M5 Note from 0 - 100 in about 90 minutes. It's strange to see that apart from the build of the device, nothing much has changed in a year for the M5 Note.
