The Meizu M5 Goes Official: A Decent Budget Handset Starting at $103


Meizu’s very affordable M5 handset is now out in the wild, at least in China. Positioned as an entry-level smartphone with decent specs for its price range, the Meizu M5 has two variants with different RAM and internal storage configurations.

The 2GB RAM/16GB storage model retails for $103 (~Php 5K) while the 3GB RAM/32GB version goes for $132 (~Php 6.5K).

Meizu M5

  • 1.5GHz MediaTek MT6750 octa-core processor
  • Mali-T860 graphics processor
  • 2GB or 3GB RAM
  • 5.2-inch HD display, 1280 x 720 resolution, 2.5D curved glass
  • 16GB or 32GB internal storage, expandable via microSD
  • 13-megapixel rear camera, phase detection AF, dual LED flash
  • 5-megapixel front camera
  • Fingerprint reader
  • YunOS 5.1 (Alibaba’s Android Open Source Project)
  • 3070mAh battery, non-removable


It’s important to note that the Chinese-sold Meizu M5 units will be loading Alibaba’s Android-forked OS, the YunOS 5.1, based on the open source project. International versions will most likely be packed with the standard Android OS, and presumably a slightly higher pricing point as well.
