Today, June 2th is the day when the Chinese company Meizu announces a new budget-friendly smartphone that comes with high-end specs. This one is known as Meizu M2 Note, and in terms of design we’re looking at a phone that looks a little bit similar to iPhone 5c, but we also have some difference between the two devices.
Meizu M2 Note arrives with a 5.5 inch Full HD IGZO display, a true octa-core Mediatek MT6753 processor clocked at 1.3 GHz, an octa-core Mediatek MT6753 processor clocked at 1.3 GHz, with a Mali T720 MP3 GPU and a 2 GB RAM LPPDR3 800 MHz chip. There’s 4G LTE connectivity, WiFi, Bluetooth4.0, and also GPS/Glonass for navigation.
We get a 13-megapixel rear camera with 4x digital zoom, an IR blue filter and a f/2.2 aperture. This sensor is capable to shoot 30 pictures every second. On the front we get a 5-megapixel OmniVision OV5670 camera with f/2.0 aperture and a couple of selfie features.
There’s also a microSD card slot up to 128 GB (uses SIM 2 slot), a 3.100 mAh battery and the Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system with Flyme OS custom interface applied on top.
Meizu M2 Note comes now with a hardware button called mBack, and not a capacitive as the previous model. This button is capable of sensing when a user is tapping or touching it. Thereby, when we’re just touching it we’ll get back to the previous app, while on a longer tap we will get back on the main menu.
This phone arrives in a 8.7 mm case that weighs around 149 grams. We get to know that the 16 GB version of this device will be priced at $130, while the 32 GB model will cost you around $160.
