Meizu M5s with Fast Charging May Launch on February 15

There are reports that Chinese handset maker Meizu has geared up to launch the successor to Meizu M3s — allegedly the Meizu M5s — next week. The company has apparently begun sending out invites to a press event scheduled for February 15 in China. You read that right — a day after the arrival of Xiaomi’s upcoming Redmi Note 4X. To recall, the Meizu M5s was spotted on a certification website in December last year with the limited set of details. The company teaser, however, hints that the upcoming smartphone will feature support for fast charging. No major design changes are expected, though.

If rumoured specifications of the Meizu M5s are to believe, it comes with 2.5D curved panel layered on top of its 5.2-inch HD display. The phone is powered by an octa-core MediaTek MT6753 64-bit chip clocked at 1.5GHz and paired with Mali-T760 GPU for graphics. Furthermore, it packs in 2GB / 3GB / 4GB RAM with 16GB / 32GB / 64GB built-in storage, which is expandable up to 128GB by means of a hybrid SIM slot. That said, it has two SIM card slots under the hood.

The Meizu M5s runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system with the company’s custom Flyme OS 6.0 on top. It then houses a 13MP rear snapper with Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF) and dual-tone LED for more natural-looking colours. Up front is a 5MP secondary camera to woo selfie lovers. Completing the package is a 2930mAh battery and connectivity options like 4G VoLTE, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS. It measures 148.2 × 72.53 × 8.4 mm and weighs 138 grams.
