Meizu has officially announced the M5 mid-ranger for the Indian markets, carrying a price tag of Rs 10,499. The handset comes with a pretty decent hardware specs sheet under the hood, which should make it a hot favorite in the Indian markets. The phone will be sold exclusively through tatacliq.com, and no other retailer is currently offering the device.
The handset comes with a fingerprint scanner placed beneath the front home button, which has become the norm among mid-ranged handsets. The manufacturer is using a 2.5D curved glass on the front, giving the handset a premium look. The 720p display is a bit of a disappointment, however. We’re yet to ascertain if the company will bring the 16GB model of the handset to the country. As it stands, Meizu is only offering the 32GB storage + 3GB RAM variant in the country.
Speaking about the Meizu M5, the South Asia Marketing Head of the company, Leon Zhang, said, “We had launched M5 in China market a few months ago and within a short span of time, this particular model bought various accolades for Meizu’s M series. This overwhelming response further inspired us to introduce this device in Indian market which evidently is one of the key markets for Meizu.”
