In early January, the Meizu M5S made a stop by benchmarking website Geekbench, giving out details on the hardware specs of the phone. The phone has also made an appearance at China’s TENAA, revealing that the phone will come in two variants.
Back then, the Meizu M5S was listed with two model numbers – M612Q and M612M. The listing revealed that both models will share the same hardware specs, but the Chinese OEM has remained silent on the issue, including the possible release date of the phone. However, looking at the latest leak, it seems as if the company is ready to unveil the phone to the world.
A new leak has surfaced from China showing off the first real images of the said Meizu M5S smartphone, but this not all that is coming from the leak. As it is, we also have the pricing details of the phone. Even though the previous TENAA listing had confirmed two variants of the phone, the latest leak only shows off the one with model number M612Q.
Apparently, the Meizu M5S has a RAM of 3GB alongside an onboard storage of 32GB. From this, the end user only gets about 23GB of usable storage. The images also show the device in a powered-on state, thus revealing the home screen and physical home button just below the display. A few other design details are also visible, among them the antenna lines, USB port, speaker grills at the lower end of the phone as well as the rear camera alongside the LED flash. The back of the box shows off two IMEI numbers, a confirmation that the Meizu M5S will support dual-SIM connectivity.

As for the pricing, the leaks can confirm that the Meizu M5S will be valued at CNY 1,299, which is about $190. This pricing is for the 3GB/32GB variant, but as noted earlier, the phone is expected to come in two variants. As for now, the details of the M612M model are yet to be confirmed.
If the listing on TENAA is to be believed, the Meizu M5S will come in with a 5.2-inch HD screen while the processing running the show will be an octa-core clocked at 1.3GHz. In addition to the 3GB RAM model, the phone should also debut 2GB and 4GB RAM variants as well. The internal storages will also vary according to the RAM, with the low-end model coming in with 16GB while the high-end variant will carry 64GB of storage.
The back camera is rumored to be a 13MP shooter while the front will house a 5MP lens. To keep the phone alive will be a 2930mAh battery and unlike other phones coming out this year, the Meizu M5S will debut with Android Marshmallow out of the box.
