Meizu launched a new phone this week, the Meizu E3 model, which is an affordable smartphone with a dual camera at the back. It also has a special Jet Fighter version, which gets pictured below. Let’s see what the specs are.
First of all, this is quite a big machine, at 5.99 inches in diagonal and it makes use of an IPS LCD display with a Full HD+ resolution. Inside it we find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor, plus 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB of storage. The dual back camera is actually closer to a higher end phone, since it includes a Sony IMX362 sensor (12 MP), with F/1.9 aperture and Dual Pixel autofocus, plus a 20 MP Sony IMX 350 sensor.
The dual back camera supports Portrait mode capture, Bokeh as some people call it and also promises to offer up to 2.5x lossless zoom. Upfront we find an 8 megapixel F/2.0 camera for selfies. Available in 3 colors, Champagne Gold, Black and Blue, the smartphone will go up on preorder on March 26th and it’ll start shipping from March 31st.
On the OS front we’re stuck with the older Android 7.1.2 Nougat, with Flyme OS 7 on top. The battery is a 3360 mAh unit and we also get 4G VoLTE, AGPS, Bluetooth 5.0 and a Super mBack fingerprint scanner. It all weighs 160 grams. By the way, 20W fast charging is also available here, thanks to a new custom cable and adapter. Meizu E3 is priced at $284 in the 64 GB version and $315 in the 128 GB one.
There’s also a Meizu E3 J20 Edition, named after the J20 fighter jet and priced at $395. That one is tailor mare to look like the aircraft and bundles a special case, box, ejet tool and memorial card.
