Meizu M5 Note was launched last week as the latest budget smartphone from Chinese smartphone maker Meizu in its Blue Charm series. The device comes as a cheap smartphone but sports an all-metal body and is being offered in a variety of color variants which includes Sky Gray, Champagne Gold, Moonlight Silver, and Glacier Blue.
Meizu M5 Note Design & Specification
The Meizu M5 Note sports a 5.5-inch display with 450 nits maximum brightness which translates into 403ppi and has a resolution of 1080 pixels. There is a curved 2.5D glass on top of the display which gives it a premium look. No doubt the design looks similar to other Blue Charm series smartphones. There are the traditional antenna lines on the upper and lower edges of the phone’s rear area. The phone is touted to come with improved signal quality and strength, double what the previous versions have.
The M5 note is powered by a MediaTek Helio P10 octa-core chipset which is backed by a 3GB RAM on one variant and a 4GB RAM on the topmost variant. There are also three storage versions, one with 16GB storage, another with 32GB and a third with 64GB of internal storage space. The phone is also a dual SIM phone with dual standby as well. The SIM card slots are hybrid ones and the second slot can double as a MicroSD slot for expanding the device’s storage up to 128GB.
On the camera end, the device packs a 13MP Sony IMX sensor with PDAF which focuses in just o.2 seconds and a f/2.2 aperture. There is equally a 5MP selfie shooter up front with ArcSoft’s algorithm for better image quality. In addition, there is a fingerprint sensor which unlocks the device in 0.2 seconds. The M5 Note crams under its hood a large 4000mAh battery which has support for 18W mCharge, ensuring it fills up faster. As for the software, the phone runs on Meizu’s latest Flyme 6 OS based on Android Marshmallow and it promises 20% better CPU and memory resource allocation for faster performance.
