The Meizu M5c is a 5" phone that is made for the global market with support for 4G LTE band 20, crucial for proper coverage in Europe. It's a plastic phone, but one with beautiful colors a likeable design, and an even more likeable super affordable price.

The company is currently officially selling its phones in Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Brunei, Cambodia, Mainland China, France, Hong Kong, India, Israel, Italy, Myanmar, New Zealand, Russia, Spain and Ukraine. Expect more price and actual release dates for the Meizu M5c in the very near future.

Overused design by Meizu. Crappy specs unless it's ultra cheap. Probably will be no where near to Redmi 4 at value proposition.

More and more phones are coming out with multiple colour options. A good move in my opinion but totally spoiled when it is only the back that is coloured while the front bezels remain black. Should follow Samsung's example with their S7/S7 Edge where the front bezels were the same colour as the back. I love colourful phones but only if the whole phone is that colour. I don't see the point of making only the back colourful as I spend so little time gazing at the back of my phone and I hate black bezels, black as a colour for anything for that matter.
