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 (opens in new tab), 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.”
