The Meizu Pro 5 is available for $459 on GearBest Meizu

Chinese smartphone brand Meizu recently launched its flagship smartphone called the Meizu Pro 5 that runs the Android 5.1 (Lollipop) out of the box. The device is touted to give the OnePlus 2 tough competition as it has similar key technical specifications.

Although the Meizu Pro 5 was sold only in China until recently, it is now available for purchase around the world via GearBest. The third-party e-tailer is accepting orders for the smartphone and is claiming to ship the device for free.

The handset is available for $459 (£302) on GearBest. Those who wish to order the device on the website need to note that the smartphones are globally unlocked variants, and their connectivity performance will vary depending on geographies.
