Chinese phone maker Meizu’s latest smartphone offers mid-range specs at a surprisingly low price point. The Meizu M5S has an octa-core CPU, 3GB of RAM, a 3,000 mAh battery, and a fingerprint scanner.

It’s expected to go on sale soon in China with a starting price of less than $120.

That’s the price for a model with 16GB of storage. There’s also a $145 version with 32GB of storage. Both should be available starting February 20th.

Other specs include:

  • 5.2 inch, 720p IPS display
  • MediaTek MT6753 ARM Cortex-A53 octa-core CPU
  • microSD card slot
  • 13MP rear camera with phase detection autofocus
  • 5MP front camera
  • 18W Fast charging support
  • 802.11b/g/n WiFi
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • Dual SIM support
  • Black, silver, gold, and rose gold color options

While the M5S is one of the Meizu’s most affordable models, the company also recently launched models with faster processors, higher-quality screens, and other premium specs, including the Meizu Pro 6 Plus and Meizu M3X.
