Meizu, the Chinese smartphone company that has been popular with MX series of high-end smartphones also launched some good entry-level smartphones. Recently the company had launched the affordable Meizu M2 in the Indian smartphone market for just Rs.6,999. It also launched a new sub-brand called PRO, and the first smartphone that was launched under its new brand is called ‘Meizu Pro 5.’ Yesterday the company on its Weibo account had posted something to be revealed today at 9 am.
According to the today’s post, the company will launch a new mid-range smartphone with the metal body. From to the images below, the device shown by the company resembles Meizu M2 Note that was launched earlier this year. It sports some decent mid-range specification and was priced at just Rs.9,999. The company had launched the M2 Note in China on 29th July and in less than three months time we don’t expect them to launch the device with a new name but can go for another variant of M2 Note.
The device is rumored to sport 5.5-inch Full HD display and powered by a 64-bit MediaTek MT6753 octa-core processor. It comes 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal while the original M2 Note has only 16GB of internal storage. It also supports dual-SIM with the hybrid SIM slot which also accepts microSD card and the comes with 4G LTE connectivity. The device listed on TENAA suggests the device to run on YunOS 3.1, but since Google hasn’t approved the Alibaba’s YunOS, the manufacturers are restricted from using incompatible Android OS under the ‘Open Handset Alliance’. We expect the upcoming metal variant of M2 Note to run on the latest Flyme OS 5.0 or the older Flyme OS 4.5.
Below Rs.10,000 price range, Meizu M2 Note was one of the best devices to offer great battery life with its 3,100mAh battery and we also expect the same battery to be continued on this new device. On the camera front, it also has a 13MP rear with LED flash and a 5MP front camera. The device will be officially launched on October 21st in China. Stay tuned for information regarding the pricing or the leaked specifications of the device.
