We’ve seen quite a few Meizu-branded smartphones hit the market this year. The Meizu PRO 6 Plus is the most powerful Meizu-branded smartphone to date, and it was introduced only a couple of days ago. This is the company’s Exynos 8890-powered flagship, and if you’d like to know more, click here. That being said, the company had introduced quite a few more affordable phones this year as well, like the Meizu M5 for example. The Meizu M5 is made out of polycarbonate, and it comes in a number of color variants. Well, the device’s larger sibling, the Meizu M5 Note, will be announced tomorrow, and the company had released a teaser poster for this smartphone, which hints at an interesting design, read on.
If you take a look at the provided image, you’ll get to see the alleged sketch of the Meizu M5 Note. This poster seems to hint at a capacitive home button for the Meizu M5 Note, like the one the Meizu M1 Note sported. Now, this could be just a throwback to the Meizu M1 Note, as it’s hard to believe Meizu would ditch their very well known multifunctional mBack physical home button they’ve been using for quite some time now, as that home button actually acts as both the capacitive back key, and a physical home key, and ties into the company’s software. The Meizu M5 Note is rumored to come in two variants, the ‘Standard Edition’ Meizu M5 Note will, allegedly, be made out of polycarbonate, while the Meizu M5 Metal will be made out of metal. The two devices are rumored to ship for 999 Yuan ($145) and 1,099 Yuan ($160), respectively.
The Meizu M5 Note actually got certified by TENAA (China’s equivalent to the FCC) a week ago, and that certification listing shared the Meizu M5 Note’s specs. According to TENAA, the Meizu M5 Note will feature a 5.5-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) display, 2GB / 3GB / 4GB of RAM and 16GB / 32GB / 64GB of expandable internal storage. The phone will be fueled by the Helio P10 64-bit octa-core processor, and a 4,100mAh battery will be included in this package as well (as the teaser image confirms). Android 6.0 Marshmallow will come pre-installed on the Meizu M5 Note, and the device will ship with either Flyme 5 or Flyme 6, we’re still not sure.
