According to reports from various countries with a strong presence of Chinese phone brands, the Meizu M5 and the M5 Note could be heading out of China very soon.
The phones are expected to launch in Indonesia and India very soon, along with a possibility of them hitting the European market soon after.
The devices were spotted at Postel, which you can think of as the Indonesian cousin of the FCC. However, details provided by the authority were scarce. Thankfully, the devices have been around a while so we know what to expect.
Gizchina News of the week
The Meizu M5 comes with a 5.2-inch 1280 x 720p display, and is powered by the mid-range MediaTek MT6750 SoC. Along with that, it has a 3070mAh battery, and features either 2GB or 3GB of RAM along with 16GB or 32GB of ROM respectively.
The M5 Note, on the other hand, comes with a larger 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080p display and runs on the newer MediaTek Helio P10 SoC. With that, it has 3GB or 4GB of RAM, 16/32/64GB storage and a beefier 4000mAh battery.
MT6750 low end soc no?
It depends..its not a gaming SoC, but it is in fact just underclocked helio P10 which means octa core and mali 860 GPU so its definitely much much better than lets say 6737 or even 6580…
tbf whatever you call it its pretty garbage as is the P10. The m5 should have had a p10 and m5 note P20 or something more powerful.
SoC sucks! Meizu sucked about SoCs in last two years. There is no significant progress on SoC.
My perception is that m5 note won’t be m1 note’s (mtk 6752) successor.
So, no, thanks Meizu!
I think, Pro models should only use Exynos SoC, MX series mtk’s last x series SoC, M note and U series last p series SoC.
