July 3, 2015 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

Meizu is one of the fastest growing Chinese smartphone manufacturers at the moment. This company has released a number of really solid devices last year, and has continued doing so this year as well. Meizu has announced the MX4, MX4 Pro and M1 Note devices in 2014, and has released M1, M2 Note and MX5 thus far this year. The latest device Meizu announced is the MX5, their new flagship. This handset was announced a couple of days ago, and by the looks of it, it might even be more successful than its predecessor.

That being said, we have tons of coverage on the Meizu MX5 already. We were actually attending the event in Beijing a couple of days ago, and have managed to get really familiar with the device. Check out our hands-on coverage if you’d like, and you can also expected a full review of the device really soon. Speaking of MX5, a first teardown of this device popped up in China, courtesy of IT168. If you take a look at the gallery down below, you’ll find quite a lot of images showing the MX5 teardown process. The phone wasn’t that difficult to disassemble, and all the pieces are right where they’re supposed to be it seems.

The Meizu MX5 features a 5.5-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) Super AMOLED display, 3GB of RAM and 16, 32 or 64GB of internal storage. Meizu’s newest flagship is powered by MediaTek’s Helio X10 (MT6795) 64-bit octa-core processor, and a 3,150mAh battery is also a part of this package. On the back of this handset you’ll find a 20.7-megapixel shooter along with a dual-LED, dual tone flash and Laser Autofocus. The 5-megapixel shooter is available on the front side of this device, and dual-SIM capability is also included here. This handset offers 4G LTE connectivity, is made out of metal, and also sports a fingerprint scanner below the display (also a home button). mCharge fast charging capability is also built in here, by the way. The cheapest MX5 model (16GB one) costs 1,799 Yuan in China, which is, according to many people, a really affordable price point for this handset.
