Meizu held an event in Beijing yesterday where they added a new member to their “m” series line which is known for having great value for money while delivering quality specifications.
The new m3 note will be the first in the “m” series to feature a 6000 series aluminum unibody. On the hardware side of things, the phone comes with a 5.5-inch, FullHD display, rather typical for the family with a 2.5D front glass. The front comes in black and white colors combined with a dark gray and gold finish on the back, respectively.
The m3 note is powered by MediaTek Helio P10 SoC, with octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU clocked at 1.8Ghz, a Mali T860 GPU; coupled with memory options of either 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage in the lower tier, as well as 3GB of RAM and a 32GB fast eMMC 5.1 solid state chip. The camera setup is the same as the previous models, at least on paper, and includes a 13MP rear shooter and a 5MP one on the front.To top things off, the device has a spacious 4000 mAh battery and an mTouch 2.1 fingerprint reader in the home button – also a novelty for the “m” lineup.
The Meizu me note offers Dual SIM support with a hybrid card tray solution (that is two SIM cards or a SIM plus microSD combo). The Meizu m3 note is also “full netcom”, which means it will work on every network in China. LTE is also a given and so is VoLTE.
But perhaps the most attractive aspect of the m3 note is its price point, starting at CNY 799 ($125) for the 2GB version and CNY 999 ($155) for the 3GB. This actually leaves in about $100 cheaper than the Meizu metal at current prices. The me note will be available in China from April 11.
