Meizu M5S Will Be Launching On January 27th: Report

Chinese cell phone brand Meizu is gearing up to launch a new phone, allegedly Meizu M5S, this month. The company has apparently started rolling out press invites to a launch event scheduled in China on January 27th. Last month, the device made it a certification website TENAA with limited details and images. Interestingly, the device was then spotted under two different listings — M612Q and M612M, both showing the similar set of specifications.

From what is known so far, Meizu M5S, similar to Meizu M3s, flaunts a metal unibody design with two antenna bands. It measures 148.2 × 72.53 × 8.4mm and weighs 138 grams. It sports a 5.2-inch HD display with the pixel density of 282 pixels per inch (PPI). Under the hood is a 1.3GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6753 chip.

Meizu M5S comes in 2GB / 3GB / 4GB RAM and 16GB / 32GB / 64GB internal storage options. In terms of optics, it houses a 13MP rear snapper with LED flash. Up front is a 5MP selfie camera. The usual set of sensors includes proximity, gravity, and ambient light. It is a dual-SIM phone running Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system.

The major let-down would be the lack of a fingerprint scanner, which is no longer uncommon with the affordable smartphone lineup. Completing the package is a 2,930mAh built-in battery. Meizu M5S looks like the smaller variant of Meizu M5, which is currently retailing in China starting at 899 yuan (approximately Rs 8,875).
