The Meizu M5s was announced quite recently, and now we get to see first unboxing images of Meizu’s new smartphone, along with its benchmarking results and camera samples. If you take a look at the gallery down below, you’ll get to see all the content I’ve just mentioned. Do keep in mind that this is a Chinese variant of the device, and it comes with a charging brick, charging cable, manual and Meizu’s SIM ejector tool with Flyme branding.
That being said, Meizu did really rather well in benchmarks, though do keep in mind that its SoC is quite limited, so you have to manage your expectations. The Meizu M5s is fueled by MediaTek’s MT6753 64-bit octa-core processor which comes with the Mali-T760 GPU for graphics. At this point in time, this is low-to-mid-range SoC, and the Meizu M5s managed to score 38,108 points on AnTuTu, while some other benchmarking details are available in the gallery down below, including results from Geekbench and 3DMark. The Meizu M5s camera did a rather good job in daylight, it offers balanced colors and the dynamic range is not that bad either, and surprisingly, night shots are not that bad either. Do keep in mind that this camera has a small f/2.2 aperture, so these nighttime shots are quite surprising even. The Meizu M5s cannot compete with top of the line smartphone cameras out there, but for its price range, it takes really nice shots, this phone’s starting price is 799 Yuan ($116) after all.
The Meizu M5s is a metal-clad smartphone, and it sports a 5.2-inch 720p (1280 x 720) display, along with 3GB of RAM and 16GB / 32GB of expandable native storage. As already mentioned, MediaTek’s MT6753 64-bit octa-core SoC fuels this phone, and a 3,000mAh battery is included on the inside, along with fast charging. A 13-megapixel shooter is placed on the back of this phone, and a 5-megapixel camera is available on its front side. There are two SIM card slots available on the inside of this smartphone (2 x nano SIM, hybrid setup). Android 6.0 Marshmallow comes pre-installed on this smartphone, and on top of it, you’re getting Meizu’s Flyme OS, though we’re still not sure what version of Flyme will ship on top of the Meizu M5s, Flyme 5 or Flyme 6.
