After a period of leaks and speculation, the Meizu M3 Max phablet is now finally official, sporting some pretty solid midrange specs. This model has a 4100 mAh battery, 3 GB of RAM and a 6 inch screen.
Its build reminds me a bit of the Huawei P9 Plus, but the fingerprint scanner upfront is atypical for a Chinese device maker. It’s embedded within the Home button and specs-wise, this device brings a 6 inch Full HD IPS panel, an octa core MediaTek Helio P10 CPU and Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Flyme UI on top. There’s also a 13 megapixel back camera in the mix, with PDAF and 0.2 second focus, relying on a Sony IMX258 sensor.
Selfies are taken with a 5 MP front shooter and the whole thing is packaged within an unibody metal shell. The fingerprint sensor upfront uses mTouch 2.1 technology and it can unlock the phone just 0.2 seconds, also supporting payments via Alipay and WeChat. 4G LTE and VoLTE are here as well, plus a 4100 mAh battery with support for mCharge fast charging.
The price is $254 and the color verions are champagne gold, silver, gray and rose gold.
