Announcement. FreeYond M5 5G – 120 Hz and a lot of memory, inexpensive

The manufacturer FreeYond, not very well known in our area, presented its first smartphone with support for 5G networks. And he called it FreeYond M5 5G.

For last year's FreeYond M5 smartphone without 5Gthe newcomer is very similar in appearance. And they have the same batteries. And even the resolution of the main cameras is the same. But that’s all, as it were. Everything else is different for these two smartphones.

In terms of performance characteristics, the Indian Lava Blaze Pro 5G is most similar to the FreeYond M5 5G. But the appearance is different, the charging speed is different, and there are slightly fewer cameras.

To the characteristics.

The MediaTek Dimensity 6020 chipset (successor to Dimensity 700) is already very familiar to us. In AnTuTu we usually expect around 400 thousand points.

Memory. Everything is fine here. 8 GB RAM, 256 GB storage. It seems that a slightly more modest 8+128 GB version should also appear on sale. Memory cards are supported.

The screen is large, 6.78″ (109 cm²). The resolution is decent, 396 ppi (1080x2460). High refresh rate – up to 120 Hz.

Classic battery – 5000 mAh. Charging is accelerated, but only a little - 18 W.

Cameras. 8 MP front, 50 MP plus two plugs at the back.

There is an NFC module and a side fingerprint scanner.

FreeYond M5 5G has already appeared on AliExpress. The start of sales is scheduled for October 16. The starting price is either $159.99 (₽16,100) or $140.99 (₽14,100), who knows.
