Chinese smartphone maker Meizu is likely to announce a new smartphone at a media event on the 27th of this month. An alleged invite to the event was shared on Chinese microblogging website Weibo today. According to rumors, the device that is set to be announced at the event is the M5s, which received certification from China’s TENAA and 3C agencies last month.
The Meizu M5s will feature a 5.2-inch sized HD display and run on an octa-core chipset clocked at 1.3 GHz. As is usually the case with TENAA, the name of the SoC wasn’t mentioned in the M5s listing, so we may have to wait until the 27th to find that out.
Multiple memory configurations will be on offer, ranging from 2GB RAM + 16GB storage on the base variant to 4GB RAM + 64GB storage on the top variant. The mid-variant will get 3GB of RAM paired with 32GB of internal storage. Moving on to imaging, the smartphone is going to offer a 13MP primary camera and a 5MP front-facing camera for selfies. Keeping the lights on will be a rather decent 2930mAh capacity battery.
An announcement on the 27th of this month would mean the handset will be available in stores across China around the Chinese New Year. The entry-level smartphone will arrive in three colors – Gold, Rose Gold, and Silver Gray.
