Registration for the soon-to-be-released Meizu MX 5 has started in India.

The Chinese smartphone firm's official e-commerce partner, Snapdeal, has confirmed that the new phone will be available on its website on 26 August, the day Meizu is slated to make an official brand debut in India.

"Get more than better with Meizu MX5 exclusively on Snapdeal! Register today", says the Snapdeal Official Twitter post.

Interested buyers can now head to Snapdeal's dedicated web-page to register for the feature-rich Meizu MX5 (HERE). The device will officially go on sale next week.

Meizu MX5 was originally unveiled in late June in China. It sports an uni-body metal (T6063 grade aluminum) based body and comes packed with a feature-rich camera.

It has a 20.7mp Sony IMX220 camera with dual-tone LED flash, laser-aided auto-focus, six physical lens, f/2.2 aperture enabling users to record clear and crisp 4K video. It also comes with Gorilla Glass 3 protective gear.

On the front, it houses a 5mp camera with f/2.0 aperture. To enhance the photography experience, it comes preloaded with FotoNation 2.0 app and Face AE- a face light boost feature with editing tools to get a nice selfie snapshot.

Another key attribute of Meizu MX5 is biometric technology for secured phone unlocking. The company has incorporated mTouch v2.0 finger-print sensor with stainless-steel ring on the home screen with an option for registering five different profiles.

The company, in a bid to improve its durability, has incorporated a layer of water-proof silicone gel behind the module to prevent water and stain erosion.

Other stipulated features include 5.5-inch full HD AMOLED display, Android 5.x.x Lollipop with Flyme 4.5 UI, 2.2GHz Mediatek Helio X10 Octa-core SoC (System on Chip), 3GB RAM, 16GB/32GB/64GB storage and a 3,150 mAh battery.
