Meizu's upcoming M5c smartphone looks just like its older brother and comes in various colors, if a recent leak is to be believed. The handset is a somewhat downgraded version of the Meizu M5, a fact reflected in its lower price.

Android Police has obtained a screenshot of an alleged official listing for the Meizu M5c. The listing, which has not gone live yet, shows the front and back of the handset and lists five available colors.

Those five colors, although not specifically named, appear to be black, blue, red, gold, and pink. Looks-wise, the M5c is quite unassuming, with a simple rectangular design featuring rounded corners and an oblong home key. The phone not only resembles its larger brother, the Meizu M5, but also an iPhone, at least from the front.

The leaked screenshot doesn't provide any other information on the M5c. However, we have an idea of its specs from a previous leak. According to Philippines-based Pinoy Screencast, which claims "insider information" as its source, the Android Marshmallow-based phone features a 5-inch screen with a 1280x720 resolution. A MediaTek MT6735 1.5 GHz quad-core processor and 2 GB of RAM power the device. Storage is somewhat limited—16 GB is all that is included; thankfully, the M5c supports microSD cards up to 128 GB in size. Additional features include an 8-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front camera, and a 3,020 mAh battery.

Pinoy Screencast's insider source does not offer a release date for the M5c, but it does mention a ₱5000 price tag, which converts to about US $100. That places the M5c firmly in the budget smartphone category, which makes sense considering that the Meizu M5 features better specs yet is also very affordable.

Meizu has not commented on the details leaked so far, but if the listing is real, then an unveiling of the M5c shouldn't be too far off.
