The much-awaited Meizu M5 has been unveiled in its home country China and will be available for purchase in a few days. The device is already up for registration and it has reportedly received 4.3 million registrations in the first 24 hours.

The registration figures may not necessarily reflect the popularity of the device, as not all who have registered will end up buying it, but it certainly gives a hint that it may have takers.
