Meizu has released a new teaser for its upcoming smartphone, the Meizu M5s at the company's Weibo page. It is reported to be the sequel to the Meizu M5, which was announced last October and released the following month.
The Meizu M5s even got certified by TENAA (China's equivalent to the FFC). It has also been spotted in GeekBench quite recently.
The Launch Date And Price
According to the teaser posted at Weibo, the Meizu M5s will be likely be released in February 15. The initial reported price of this device is said to be $145 only, but reports are now suggesting that it could be at around $220.
The Meizu M5s features a metal casing design, something that is a far cry from its predecessor, the Meizu M5, which featured a polycarbonate case. Sadly, the smartphone will not have a software-based home button. Instead, it will feature a physical home key, which is technically Meizu's multi-functional mBack home button.
The Meizu M5s will have a 5.2-inch screen with a screen resolution of only 1280 x 720 pixels. There was no mention as to what screen type will it have.
As per Android Headlines, the Meizu M5s will have MediaTek's MT6750 64-bit octa-core processor. While another report, this time by GSM Arena, noted that the device will run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and will be packing MediaTek's MT6753 processor.
The Internal Memory
The Meizu M5s is expected to feature an internal memory storage capacity of 32 GB with 3 GB of RAM. However, GSM Arena did also mention that there may possibly be a 64 GB with 4 GB of RAM variant, hence the reason as to why the expected price changed to $220.
The Camera And Battery
The Meizu M5s is rumored to have a 13 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front-facing camera. As for the battery specs, it will be powered by 2,930 mAh battery and the device itself will also have a fast charging feature, specifically Meizu's mCharge technology.
