Meizu first launched its Meizu m1 Note smartphone back in the end of last year, and brought it to the Indian market a few weeks back. Today, at a special event in Beijing, the company has announced the next-generation Meizu M2 Note. The new handset comes with improved specs but also maintains some aspects from its predecessor.
The Meizu Note 2 brings Android 5.1 Lollipop and is priced at just ¥799 for the 16GB variant ($129) and ¥999 ($161) for the 32GB variant. The smartphone is already on sale in China, but will most likely be brought to international markets, as well. We only wonder if it will take them so much. But now that Meizu has established its official presence in India, they will most likely target this country as the first one where the new device will start selling beyound China.
The new M2 Note features a 5.5 inch Full HD display similar to the M1 Note, being powered by a 64-bit 1.3Ghz MT6753 Octa Core processor from MediaTek along with Mali-T720GPU. We’re seeing lately more and more devices being powered my MediaTek, so it seems their recent breakthroughs are proving to be fruitful.
The phone comes with 2GB RAM and along with the 16GB and 32GB internal storage options there is also support for micro SD card to further extend the maximum capacity. As a matter of fact, it’s the second SIM card slot act which acts as an external card. The M2 Note gets a 13MP rear camera with dual LED flash and a front facing 5MP one. The device comes with 4G LTE support, as well, and gets a 3100mAh battery.
The smartphone runs Meizu’s Flyme UI on top of Android 5.1 Lollipop. The smartphone will be available in Blue, White, Rose and Gray color options, which in my opinion is one of the strong selling points of the product, as it will appeal with those looking to get a phone with a specific color.
