Affordable Meizu M5 launches in India at Rs 10,499

Meizu is one such Chinese cell phone brand that hasn’t been much active in the Indian smartphone space. The company has come a long way since it previously announced the Meizu M3s in India back in October last year starting at Rs 7,999. Going ahead, Meizu today announced a new phone dubbed the M5 in India. The phone is priced at Rs. 10,499 and up for grabs exclusively on Tata Cliq. It comes in two colours: Blue and Champagne Gold. The biggest highlight of the Meizu M5, it supports 4G VoLTE so that users can operate it on Reliance Jio network.

Furthermore, it comes with a hybrid dual-SIM slot, allowing users access either two SIM cards or one microSD card simultaneously. What’s more, it offers a fingerprint scanner and an octa-core processor, which is common in this price range. To recall, the Meizu M5 was first introduced in China in two variants: 2GB of RAM with 16GB of storage and 3GB of RAM with 32GB of storage. The only 3GB RAM variant will be sold in India, though.

Specs-wise, the Meizu M5 has a 5.2-inch 720p display with 2.5D curved glass on top of it. Inside is an octa-core MediaTek MT6750 SoC ticking at 1.5GHz in addition to Mali-T860 for graphics. It houses a 13-megapixel rear camera with dual-tone LED flash, PDAF, f/2.2 aperture, and 5P Lens. Up front is a 5-megapixel selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture, 4P Lens for selfies. It packs a 3070mAh battery, which is claimed to offer up to 66 hours of music playback, 37 hours of talk time, 9 hours of gaming, and 5 hours of photography.

The Meizu M5 measures 8mm in thickness and weighs 138 grams.
