The Meizu M5 Note went official and it follows a formula that the company knows well - an affordable metal phone with a 5.5" 1080p screen. It is an LTPS screen guarded by 2.5D curved glass and promises 1,000:1 contrast ratio.
Flyme OS 6.0 (based on Android 6.0)runs on a MediaTek Helio P10 chipset with 3GB of RAM and 16GB or 32GB storage. A more upscale 4GB/64GB version is available too, which you may consider given that the dual-SIM slot is a hybrid.
Anyway, the Meizu M5 Note measures 8.15mm thick and weighs 175g. It houses a 4,000mAh battery, bigger than the 3,100mAh battery of the M3E (a very similar phone).
Like it, the M5 Note has a 13MP main camera with an f/2.2 lens and 1080p video recording. There is a 5MP selfie camera too. Additional specs include a fingerprint reader below the display, 4G connectivity with VoLTE and Wi-Fi b/g/n (no 5GHz).
