Meizu’s flagship MX5 was released only earlier this week, but now it’s already available for international pre-order online. The device is being sold by online retailer Gearbest, and will hopefully be shipped out on the first day of August.
The MX5 is Meizu’s latest flagship device, and is powered by MediaTek’s Helio X10 processor. It also has 3GB of RAM, a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080p Super AMOLED display, a 3150mAh battery, as well as a fingerprint scanner and support for dual nano sim cards. The version of the device on pre-order is the 16GB version of the device, with all colour options available. The pricing for the device is rather steep however at a massive $398, a whole $108 more expensive than the device’s original price.
The markup on the device is huge, though if you do pick one up, there is free shipping available. What do you think about this increase in price? Is it still worth it to get the device when there are similar devices at lower prices? Tell us in the comments.
