Chinese smartphone brand Meizu has officially launched the Meizu M5 Note. It is successor to the M3 Note that was launched in Nepal few months back.
The Meizu M5 note features the same 5.5-inch 1080P display as compared to the M3 Note. It has a LTPS IPS display with 2.5D curved glass display and 1000: 1 contrast ratio. Powering the phone is a 1.8 GHz Octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 processor with Mali T860 GPU — same chipset found in the M3 Note. Memory wise, it has either 3GB of RAM with 16/32GB ROM and 4GB of RAM with 64GB ROM; both can be further expanded via microSD card upto 128GB.
Unlike the M3 Note that runs on Android 5.1 lollipop, the M5 note boots with the Android 6.0 Marshmallow with company’s in-house Flyme OS 6.0. The Meizu M5 Note features 13MP rear camera with dual-tone LED flash, PDAF, and f/2.2 aperture lens, and a 5MP front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture. The camera specs looks similar to that of M3 Note, which is a downside since during our review of M3 note, the camera was its biggest downside.
Connectivity options include dual hydrid SIM with 4G VOLTE, dual-band WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, and fingerprint sensor (unlocks in 0.2 sec). Powering the phone is a 4100mAh battery which now supports 18W mCharge fast charging that the company claims can charge the phone fully in just 90 minutes.
The Meizu M5 Note is priced at 899 yuan (US$ 130 / NRs. 14,200 approx.) for the 3GB RAM with 16GB storage version, 999 yuan (US$ 145 / NRs. 15,792 approx.) for the 3GB RAM with 32GB storage version and the 4GB RAM with 64GB storage version costs 1499 yuan (US$ 218 / Rs. 23700 approx.).
