All the rumors can finally be put to rest as Meizu has launched the M5 smartphone in China. Successor to the M3, the smartphone comes with some improvements in its specifications. However, the Meizu M5 is nothing but a bigger version of the M3S, which recently launched in India for Rs 9,299. One of the main highlights is the smartphone’s fast fingerprint reader. The smartphone comes with an mTouch 2.1 fingerprint reader that can now unlock the device in just 0.2 seconds.

Talking about the design, the smartphone comes with a polycarbonate body with a physical home button up front. Meizu not only uses the M5’s button as a fingerprint sensor and home button, but it also uses it as a capacitive back button which is why the smartphone doesn’t have on-screen buttons. The Meizu M5 will be available for buying in five colors — matte black, mint green, blue, champagne gold and white starting from November. Launched in China, there is currently no word on when the smartphone will be making its way to the Indian shores.

Meizu M5 Price

The Meizu M5 will be available in two variants 2GB RAM/16GB and 3GB RAM/32GB. The one with 2GB of RAM is priced at CNY 700 (which is approximately Rs 6,800), while the 3GB variant will be available for CNY 900 (which is approximately Rs 8,800). If launched in India, the Meizu M5 will face tough competition from the likes of Xiaomi Redmi 3s and Lenovo Vibe K5 to name a few.

Meizu M5 specifications

The Meizu M5 features dimensions of 147.28×72.8x8mm, and weighs 138 grams. The smartphone features 5.2-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) 2.5D curved glass display with a 282ppi. Under the hood is a MediaTek MT6750 octa-core processor (four 1.5GHz Cortex-A53 + four 1GHz Cortex-A53) paired with Mali T860 GP. The 16GB and 32GB storage options can be further expanded up to 128GB using a microSD card.

On the photography front, the smartphone sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with dual-tone LED flash with PDAF, f/2.2 aperture, and 5P Lens. Up front, there is a 5-megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture, 4P Lens for selfies. The device is armed with a 3,070mAh battery, which the company claims is good enough to offer 66 hours of music playback.

On the connectivity front, the smartphone comes with hybrid dual-SIM slot, 4G VoLTE support, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS/ A-GPS support. Talking about the software, Meizu M5 runs Yun OS 5.1 with FlyMe UI 5.5 layered on top which means the company has ditched stock Android, so one of the main drawbacks will be that users won’t be able to access the Google Play Store.

In comparison, the Meizu m3 flaunts a 5-inch HD (720p) display with 2.5D curved glass. At the heart of the m3 is a MediaTek MT6750 64-bit octa-core processor, 13-megapixel rear camera, and a front-facing 5-megapixel camera. Armed with a 2,870mAh battery, it features a hybrid dual-SIM card setup with 4G LTE connectivity and VoLTE support, Wi-Fi 802.11n and GPS. On the software front, the Meizu m3 runs on Android Lollipop 5.1 wrapped under Flyme OS 5.1.

If the Meizu M5 were to launch in India, the smartphone will compete against the likes of the Xiaomi Redmi 3s and Lenovo Vibe K5 among others. The Redmi 3s is powered by 64-bit Snapdragon 430 octa-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz, features a 13-megapixel rear camera with PDAF, LED flash and full HD video recording, along with a 5-megapixel selfie snapper. Armed with a 4,100mAh battery, the smartphone runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow-based MIUI 8 out-of-the-box. The Lenovo Vibe K5, on the other hand, is powered by Qualcomm’s 64-bit Snapdragon 415 octa-core processor, features a 13-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front-facing shooter. It is armed with a 2,750mAh battery and runs Android 5.1 Lollipop OS out-of-the-box.
