Meizu MX5 could launch 26th August in India


The OnePlus 2 may be the talk of the town, but Meizu’s MX5 is doing all it can to compete against the phone.

The MX5 is due to launch in India on the 26th of August via online marketplace Snapdeal, Gadgets to use reports. Which means that this isn’t an official announcement, but something you should take with a pinch of salt.

The MX5 (review) is Meizu’s most powerful phone on the market yet. At just 1799 Yuan or US$289, the phone is among the more affordable flagships. It comes with a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080p display, 3GB of RAM, and is powered by the MT6795T aka the Helio X10.

Now since there’s no official word on an India launch, there’s no pricing info either… but if we were to speculate, a 17,999 INR price tag for the Meizu MX5 would be our first guess. Xiaomi’s Mi 4 and a few other phones including the OnePlus One sell for around that much in the country, and the MX5 would be an addition buyers would welcome.

    I am having more fun with this phone than any phone before it. I discover new little things in Flyme that I like every day.

      Unfortunately for me it’s starting to act up.

        Really what issues are you noticing?

          Freeze ups. Every now and then… I’m not sure if it is a rogue app or very very bad memory management, but for a large part the MX5 is near-unusable until I clear memory. Looks like there’ll be a follow-up review coming very soon 🙁

            Hmm I haven’t noticed this yet. I don’t use a lot of apps though but I am gonna try to replicate this a few ways.

              Lol. This is mainly a test phone for me as I have been planning all along to get the S7 or E8 (even with horrible Amigo lol).
