As per our previous report, the Chinese manufacturer Meizu has officially unveiled its latest smartphone today. Called M5 Note, it is essentially a successor to the M3 Note that was launched earlier this year although it was only released into Malaysia in October.
True to the rumors that we’ve heard before, Meizu has retained quite a number of hardware from M3 Note for the new M5 Note. Among them are the 5.5-inch full HD (1920 x 1080) display, MediaTek Helio P10 processor, fingerprint reader, 13-megapixels PDAF rear camera with dual-LED flash, and 5-megapxiels front camera.
That being said, the new M5 Note is available with more RAM at up to 4GB as compared to its predecessor which is limited to 3GB. Meizu has also added 64GB option for the smartphone – double the maximum amount of internal storage available for M3 Note.
Also featuring a full metal body, the new M5 Note is slightly slimmer than its predecessor at 8.1mm which might be due to its smaller 4000mAh battery. However, the new phone is somehow much heavier than M3 Note at 175g.
Available in China later this week, the 3GB/16GB model is priced at CNY 899 (about RM 582) while the 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB variants are listed at CNY 999 (about RM 647) and CNY 1,499 (about RM 971) respectively. No news regarding the phone’s availability in Malaysia at the moment though but worry not, we’ll keep you posted once we receive updates regarding that matter from either Meizu Malaysia or its distributor partner.
