The retailer is selling the 16GB variant of the handset in either silver black or silver white, for Rs. 19,999, which equates to around $300. If you need more storage, the 32GB and 64GB versions of the handset are not yet available but the retailer has confirmed these will launch in the near future.

The Meizu MX5 aims to pick up where the Meizu MX4 left off and features a 5.5-inch Full HD 1080p display with an octa-core MediaTek processor clocked at 2.2GHz and 3GB RAM. Under the hood, the handset packs a 3150 mAh non-removable battery with fast charging that can charge to 60% in just 40 minutes, while connectivity options include an infrared port, Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi n/ac.

On the back, the handset sports a 20.7MP rear camera with laser autofocus, dual-tone LED flash and 4K Ultra HD video recording while the front facing 5MP snapper can capture Full HD video. The handset supports dual Nano-SIM cards, comes with a fingerprint sensor and offers 4G LTE, making it an affordable yet premium LTE handset.
