Last year, Meizu introduced the new E-series smartphones to offer the premium designed smartphones at a cheaper price. The Meizu M3E is the first device to launched under this new series, and now the company has sent out the media invites for the launch of its successor in China. The upcoming device might be called as Meizu E2 and features almost the same design as its predecessor. Beneath the display, we can find the mTouch home button with fingerprint sensor. It comes with an all-metal unibody design with a slight curve on the rear.
While there is no official confirmation over the specifications, the Meizu E2 might come with a 5.5-inch display with Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) resolution. Under the hood, it packs an octa-core processor clocked at 1.8GHz and might come with 2GB, 3GB, and 4GB RAM options. The device comes in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB storage options and will feature MicroSD card slot for storage expansion. The Android 7.0 Nougat was released by Google more six months ago, and many manufacturers are yet to bring Nougat powered smartphones.
The Meizu E2 still runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the in-house Flyme OS on top. In the camera department, there is a 13MP rear camera with LED flash and a 5MP front camera for selfies. The device supports dual SIM dual standby and offers FDD and TDD-LTE connectivity. With all these specifications, the device derives its juice from a 3,920mAh non-removable battery. It measures 153.6 × 75.8 × 8.15 mm and might feel a bit heavy by weighing 175 grams. From the TENAA listing, the device is said to come in White, Silver, and Blue color option.
We also expect the Meizu E2 to support mobile payments service as its predecessor supported Alibaba’s AliPay. The volume rocker and power button are placed on the right edge and a hybrid SIM card slot on the left edge. The earlier launched Meizu M3E came with Flyme UI based on Yun OS instead of Android OS. It is powered by MediaTek Helio P10 octa-core SoC clocked at 1.8GHz and came with only 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. A few months after launching the Meizu M3E, the company also launched Star Trek edition of the Meizu M3E in China.
The special edition device came with a Star Trek logo engraved on the rear and a special theme pre-installed in the device. Recently, one of the company’s officials in China confirmed to launch the new flagship soon Meizu MX7 smartphone. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more details about the upcoming Meizu smartphone.
