Each model has a 5 inch, 1280 x 720 pixel display, a MediaTek MT6750 octa-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor with Mali-T860 graphics, a 13MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and 4G LTE support.
The Meizu M3S runs Android 5.1 Lollipop software with Meizu’s Flyme OS user interface, and the phone features a 3,020 mAh battery.
