Meizu has launched the much-anticipated M5 Note in China with Flyme OS 6 starting at CNY 899. The Meizu M5 Note is available for pre-order and will be shipped from Thursday.

The main attraction of the Meizu M5 Note is the integration of the brand new Flyme OS 6. However, the new OS is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which is disappointing considering the availability of Android 7.0 Nougat.

Designed with a metal body, the Meizu M5 Note features a 4000mAh battery with support for mCharge fast charging. According to Meizu, the handset is capable of delivering a backup of 90 minutes. We are not surprised with the addition of 4000mAh battery because many other manufacturers have released smartphones with this battery capacity.

Meizu M5 Note specifications

On the specifications segment, the Meizu M5 Note is equipped with a 5.5-inch FHD LTPS 2.5D curved glass display, Helio P10 octa-core processor, Mali T860 graphics, and 3GB/4GB RAM. The phone ships in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB internal storage variants. The processor runs at a clock speed of 1.8GHz, which is low for a premium smartphone. The phone offers an ability to extend the storage up to 128GB.

Meizu M5 Note features 13MP rear camera

Talking about the camera segment, the Meizu M5 Note features a 13MP sensor with f/2.2 aperture, dual-tone LED flash, and PDAF. For selfie freaks, there is a 5MP sensor alongside f/2.0 aperture and 4P Lens. With a thickness of 8.15mm, the M5 Note measures 175 grams in weight.

Meizu’s new outing also includes a fingerprint sensor embedded below the Home button. According to company sources, Meizu M5 Note provides an ability to unlock the handset in 0.2 seconds.

Meizu M5 Note pricing

As mentioned above, the newly launched M5 Note is available in three variants. The 3GB RAM with 16GB internal storage is priced at CNY 899 or Rs. 8900. While the 3GB RAM/32GB storage is equipped with CNY 999 (Rs. 9900), the 4GB RAM/64GB internal storage is priced at CNY 1499, which equates to Rs. 15000. The handset is available in Grey, Silver, Champagne Gold and Blue color variants.

In addition to 4G VoLTE support, the Meizu M5 Note provides support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v4.1, and GPS. The handset ships with dual hybrid Nano SIM slot. Hence, if you have a Micro SIM, you will not be able to use the phone.
