Meizu M5s Released, Xiaomi Mi5C Release date and Samsung Leader Arrested - Smartphone News Roundup 17.02.2017

Meizu M5s has been getting a lot of media attnetion and now that its finally released, let's take a good look at it!

Meizu M5S Display

Very premium design and build quality for a 100$ smartphone! The 720p HD IPS Display
 looks crisp and colours are vibrant.

Meizu M5S Display

Meizu signature all-in-one home button is ever present, how about those thin bezels
 and slick design for a budget phone - NICE!

Meizu M5S Back

Dual-Nano Sim device with one slot able to be used as a MicroSD card holder.
We can also see a multi-coloured LED Flash below the 13MP f/2.2 Sony Camera.

Meizu M5S Accessoaries

There you have it, al the contents - Sim-Tray pin, micro USB cable and a 18W quick Charger.

Meizu M5S Box

The Box is premium as can be expected from Meizu.
Strangely, Meizu M5s is reported to pack an older Octa-Core MT6753 chip,
that is still OK for most taks and 2GB/16GB and 3GB/32GB options, with
only the 32GB having Fast Charge capabilities.
I have inside information that MT6753 will only be used in the 2GB/16GB option and the rest will feature the much more potent Helio P10, but that is not yet officially confirmed.

Meizu M5S Charger

18W Quick Charger will be able to fully charge the 3000mAh battery in just over 1 hour.




Now on to Meizu's Rival - XIAOMI!
Xiaomi Mi5c Launch



Xiaomi are gearing up to release its first ever in-house powered smartphone - Mi5C!
Last week we covered the new Xiaomi Mi5c details and the Pinecone chip that will power it



New sourced claim that the phone will now be without the home button and surely have a metal back.

Xiaomi Mi5c looks really well made and stylish, but it will also be powerful thanks to the
2.3Ghz Octa-Core Pinecone SoC with Mali860MP4 Graphics.
Xiaomi are rumoured to show the device on the 21st of February in Taiwan.




Last, but certainly not least we have some Samsung news.

Samsung


Poor, Samsung really can't catch a break. First the Note 7 battery exploading fiasco, then
the company that made the batteries for that Note 7 cought fire as well(talk about Karma!)
Today, Samsung's acting leader and vice-chairman Lee Jae-yong has been arrested for attempted bribery of South Korean President Park Geun-hye!
Samsung Leader Arrested

Apparently, Lee sent 43 billion won ($36 million) from some of Samsung’s subsidiaries to two foundations controlled by Choi Soon-sil, an aide to South Korean president Park Geun-hye. Prosecutors also claim the payments were part of a scheme that Park would help Lee support a merger of two of Samsung Group’s holding companies. That merger helped to give more control of Samsung over to Lee’s family. Park ended up being impeached in December as part of this scandal.

Officially, Lee has been charged with embezzlement, bribery, perjury, concealment of criminal proceeds and illicit transfer of assets abroad. After the court’s decision, Lee was placed behind bars inside the Seoul Detention Center. However, it’s expected that it might take up to 18 months before his trial begins and a verdict is reached. The special prosecutor’s office had also requested the court this week to issue an arrest warrant for Samsung Electronics President Park Sang-jin, but that request was rejected today.

Samsung have been sued and  prosecuted numerous times in Sout Korea for similar "shady" activities, as well as abusing labor force and not following safety and Eco regulations, so things aren't
excatly looking bright for the Smartphone Giant.
