Last week, we mentioned about the Meizu launching a new smartphone and smartwatch in the next couple weeks. While we expected the leaked E series to be of the smartwatch but the latest information suggest the company to launch a new smartphone series. The first smartphone under the E- series will be called as Meizu M1E and will be launched alongside the smartwatch on April 10th. There are rumors about Meizu smartphone to launch with dual rear cameras and curved display.
Now the latest leaks of images confirmed the device to be another affordable device next to the Meizu M3 Note. Recently the company launched the high-end Meizu MX6 and Pro 6 smartphones. The leaked confirms the device to look same as the Meizu MX6 except the antenna band placement. Unlike the curved antenna bands as seen MX6 and Pro 6, the M1E comes with regular parallel bands. On the front is the physical home button that comes integrated with a fingerprint sensor.
While we are expecting the upcoming smartphone to run on YunOS, the Meizu M1E runs on YunOS 5.1.1 based Flyme 5.2.1 UI. It might come with 5.5-inch FullHD display and will be powered by the Helio P10 SoC, same as M3 Note. It comes in different storage variant along with 2GB and 3GB of RAM. On the camera front, there will be a 13MP rear shooter and a 5MP front shooter for selfies. In May this year, the company launched the M3 Note in India priced at Rs. 9,999 and is exclusively available on Amazon.
It came with an unibody Aluminum body and sports same specifications as we mentioned earlier for M1E. While the M1E is expected to come with YunOS, the M3 Note runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop based Flyme 5.1 OS. It supports 4G LTE along with VoLTE which makes the device usable with Jio 4G SIM. The Jio 4G services are expected to launch commercially on August 15th, so stay tuned on Phoneradar for more information.
