It will be offered in Rose Gold, Champagne Gold, Star Grey, and Moonlight Silver colour options.

The company claims that the mTouch technology on the fingerprint scanner could unlock the smartphone in 0.2 seconds.

The device comes equipped with a 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6753 octa-core processor paired with 3GB of RAM and 16GB/32GB of internal storage. The handset has a hybrid dual-SIM configuration which allows storage expansion via microSD card up to 128GB.
For photography, the Meizu M5s offers a 13MP primary rear camera with two-tone flash, f/2.2 aperture, and PDAF. Up front, it has a 5MP selfie snapper with f/2.0 aperture. It has ArcSoft Beatification software pre-installed on it for capturing great selfies.

The Meizu M5s will go sale in China at the moment, however, the International release of the device is unknown. Meizu had unveiled a range of smartphones in China last year, like the Meizu Pro 6S and M5 Note. But these phones haven’t received into the Indian market as of now. So, the availability of Meizu M5s is doubtful in India. That said, the Meizu M3s is present in India with price starting at Rs 7,999.
