Earlier this year LeEco unveiled it’s automated LeSEE SuperCar that can be controlled through LeEco smartphones. LeEco’s eUI which also powers its LED TVs can be easily controlled with their smartphones. The company always talks about the ecosystem of products, and since they run on the same eUI, it will also be easy to control. Though Alibaba has the same ambitions to make all the devices integrated into one system, it doesn’t directly manufacture any hardware devices.
Alibaba’s YunOS is majorly limited to the Chinese market and the recent reports also suggests it to be third largest mobile OS next to Android and iOS. Just kike Android, the YunOS also powers smartphones, TV, automobiles, IoT and others. Since Alibaba owns a stake in Meizu, it launches few smartphones running on YunOS. Recently launched Meizu M3 runs on Flyme OS based on YunOS. Now the company has confirmed to launch a mid-ranger smartphone under the new E-series in China.
Though the device name is not yet officially known, the leaks suggest the device to be called as Meizu M1E/M3E. Now the latest leaked images show the upcoming smartphone to controlled recently launched RX5 SUV. The RX5 is the first smart car from Alibaba that comes powered by the in-house YunOS. Since the Meizu M1E/M3E is also powered by YunOS, it can be used to start/stop, lock/unlock the RX5 and can also control the AC of the car.
It also shows the location and remaining fuel of the car. Since the device is launching on August 10th, stay tuned on phoneradar for complete specifications and features of the device. Though the rumors hinted that the device to feature a curved display and dual camera setup, the design looks similar to the last month launched Meizu MX6. While the MX6 came with newly designed antenna bands placed on the top and the bottom edges, the upcoming smartphone features regular bands placed parallelly on top and bottom of the rear panel.
Talking about the rumored specifications, it comes with a 5.5-inch display with Full HD (19220 x 1080 pixels) resolution. It will be powered by the MediaTek Helio P10 octa-core processor clocked at 1.8GHz and coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. We also expect to see 2GB RAM variant with 16GB of storage. Just like Mx6, it also comes with an Aluminum build unibody with rounded edges. The physical home button on the front will also feature the fingerprint sensor.
In the camera department, there is a 13MP rear camera with LED flash and a 5MP selfie camera on the front. The device will be kept powered on by a 3,100mAh non-removable battery that can at least give a single day of usage. As mentioned earlier, it runs on YunOS and comes with 4G LTE support for faster data speeds.
