Meizu has launched its second phone, the m2 Note in India. The Meizu m2 Note will start retailing at Rs 9,999 and at this price, it boasts of some really good specs on paper. The phone was launched in China on June 2nd followed by Meizu MX5 which was launched on June 30th.
The screen shapes up in the form of a 5.5-inch Full HD IGZO display which translates into a pixel density of 403ppi. The display is protected by AGC Dragontrail and under the hood lies a 64-bit octa-core MediaTek MT6753 powerhouse coupled with a 2GB of RAM. The Meizu m2 Note boasts of a 13-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel f/2.0 wide-angled front camera. We had recently tested the Meizu m2 Note briefly and we could not help noticing how good the primary camera unit is.
The storage department is taken care by 16GB of onboard storage along with a microSD slot capable of taking up to 128GB. The Meizu m2 Note features the usual bevy of connectivity options including 4G LTE, Dual-SIM, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. It runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop with the custom Flyme OS 4.5 on top of it. In our experience, FlyMe OS is really fast, but has some stability issues with its global builds.
The phone will be sold exclusively over Amazon India starting August 10th.
It seems that the Chinese manufacturer is keen in getting a chunk of the large screened affordable phone market in which phones like Lenovo K3 Note, Yureka Plus and Xiaomi Note 4G are ruling the roost. The Meizu m2 Note is backed up by a 3,100mAh battery.
Although the phone looks extremely enticing considering the price to spec ration, one should consider the fact that Meizu has a very scanty presence (in fact zero presence) when it comes to service centers in India.
