Meizu MX5E smartphone announced
Meizu is set to release its M3 Note phablet at an event in China tomorrow. However, it seems that the successor to the very popular M2 Note is not the only new handset that will be showcased, as the company quietly listed another new smartphone dubbed Meizu MX5E on their official web store.
The MX5E carries a similar (yet slightly lower) specifications and design as the MX5 model launched last year. It features a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass 3 on top for increased protection. The device is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio X10 processor with PowerVR G6200 graphics unit, accompanied by 3 GB of RAM. Two storage size options are available: 16 GB and 32 GB. There is no information whether there's a microSD card slot on-board, but it's probably safe to assume so, since the mentioned MX5 model had one.
On the camera front, there's a 16 MP main unit with dual tone LED flash and laser focus assist on the back, as well as a 5 MP selfie shooter on front.
The dual-SIM Meizu MX5E is 7.6 mm thin, weighs 149 grams and packs a 3,150 mAh battery with mCharge fast charging technology. Connectivity options include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS and micro-USB. The phone, running Android 5.1 Lollipop with Meizu's Flyme OS user interface, has been priced at 1499 Yuan (approx. $231) for the 16 GB version and 1699 Yuan (approx. $262) for the 32 GB.
