Meizu launches the affordable M5 Note with a 5.5-inch screen and 4,000 mAh battery
At a press event in China, Meizu unveiled its latest smartphone called the M5 Note. As expected, it offers a great price-performance ratio, just like other devices in its lineup.
The M5 Note packs a 5.5-inch 2.5D curved glass display with Full HD resolution. You’ll find the Mediatek Helio P10 processor under the hood alongside 3 GB of RAM and 16/32 GB of storage, or 4 GB of RAM with 64 GB of space.
It features a 13 MP primary camera with an f/2.2 aperture and phase detection autofocus (PDAF), while the secondary selfie camera has a 5 MP sensor. There’s a fingerprint sensor below the screen that wakes up the device in 0.2 seconds and will keep your precious data safe.
The metal body with a thickness of 8.15 mm comes in Gray, Silver, Champagne Gold, or Blue, and houses a large 4,000 mAh battery. It supports mCharge fast charging technology, which should make sure that the battery hits 100% in around 90 minutes. Android 6.0 Marshmallow runs the show with Meizu’s latest Flyme user interface (6.0) on top.
The device will go on sale on December 8 in China. Meizu is asking CNY 899 (~$130) for the 3 GB/16 GB model, CNY 999 (~$145) for the 3 GB/32 GB version, while the slightly more powerful 4 GB/64 GB unit will set you back CNY 1,499 (~$218).
There’s no word on when or if the M5 Note will launch in Western markets for now, but if we hear more on this topic, we’ll be sure to let you know.
So, any thoughts on the latest offering from Meizu? Would you consider buying the device?
