Three months after the launch of the Meizu M5s, Meizu has today launched another smartphone in its mid-range M-series. The Meizu M5c is touted as specially designed for its international fans and rightly so, it is perhaps the first time Meizu is first announcing its new smartphone outside its usual Chinese launch channels (We have to check up our records if this is true). The M5c was announced by the Chinese company via its Twitter account.
Design & Features
The Meizu M5c features a design which is consistent with Meizu’s design language. It bears slight resemblance with the M5s except for the positioning of the fused antenna band at the rear. While the antenna band on the M5c is at the top and bottom edges, that of the M5s is not. Another thing is that the M5c features a stylishly curved body with well-chamfered edges. The body of the M5c isn’t made from metal but it features polycarbonate unibody touted to have been specially crafted using ultra-high precision CNC techniques. The mid-ranger comes with an 8.3mm body, weighing only 135g.
