Meizu has recently announced the company’s new flagship, the Meizu MX5. This handset is a direct successor to the Meizu MX5, and it really does have a lot to offer. The Meizu MX5 is made out of metal, and it sports really solid specs. We’ve talked about this handset a number of times thus far, and have even attended its launch in China quite recently.

That being said, the Meizu MX5 registrations for the first flash sale in China have been around for about a week now. Around 2 million people registered within 24 hours since the phone was launched, and according to the latest info, over 5 million people registered in only a couple of days since the phone was launched. Meizu is kind of limited when it comes to a number of handsets they can offer per flash sale, which was to be expected.
Meizu MX5 features a 5.5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) Super AMOLED panel along with 3GB of RAM and 16, 32 or 64GB of internal storage. Meizu’s newest flagship is powered by MediaTek’s Helio X10 64-bit octa-core SoC, and a non-removable 3,150mAh battery is also included in this package. The 20.7-megapixel shooter (Sony’s IMX230 sensor) is included on the back of this smartphone, and you also get a dual-LED, dual-tone flash and a Laser Autofocus here. The 5-megapixel snapper is located up front, and this is a dual-SIM handset. Android Lollipop comes pre-installed on Meizu MX5 with the company’s Flyme 4.5 UI on top of it. The Meizu MX5 features mCharge fast charging, mTouch fingerprint scanner (physical home button), and is made out of metal. The device measures 149.9 x 74.7 x 7.6mm, and it weighs 149 grams.
There you have it, it seems like a lot of people located in China want to purchase the Meizu MX5, and it will be interesting to see if Meizu will be able to ramp up their production capacity in the coming months. The company is now able to produce a limited amount of MX5 units, and the demand is clearly quite substantial. Either way, we’ll keep you posted.
