Meizu has announced the arrival of the M3 Note, the successor of last year’s M2 Note a day after it launched the MX5e phablet.
Just like its predecessor, the Meizu M3 Note sports a 5.5 inch full HD (1080×1920 pixels) LTPS display with a pixel density of 403ppi.
It also has mTouch 2.1 fingerprint sensor embedded into the home button which is touted to unlock the phone in just 0.2 seconds.
In addition, the Meizu m3 Note runs Flyme OS based on Android 5.1 Lollipop, measures 153.6 × 75.5 × 8.3mm and weighs 163g.
The smartphone will come in two variants. There’s a 2GB of RAM/ 16GB of inbuilt storage version priced at CNY 799 (that’s roughly 25,000 naira), and another 3GB of RAM/ 32GB storage version priced at CNY 999 (that’s about 31,000 naira).
The device will go on sale in China from Monday 11th of April 2016, and registrations for the first sale are already on.
Under the hood, the Meizu M3 Note is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 SoC (with 4 Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.8GHz, and 4 Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1GHz).
This is further coupled with either 2GB or 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM. The device’s 16GB/32GB internal memory can also be expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card.
On the rear of the device is a 13 megapixel camera with an f/2.2 aperture and PDAF autofocus. On the front is a 5 megapixel selfie camera with an f/2.0 aperture.
The biggest highlight of the smartphone is its powerful 4100mAh battery that promises up to 17 hours of video playback.
The Meizu M3 Note supports Hybrid Dual SIM (nano+nano/microSD). Connectivity options on the device include 4G LTE support, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 with BLE, and GPS/ A-GPS. Onboard sensors include accelerometer, gyroscope, ambient light, and magnetometer.
The Meizu m3 Note will be available in Grey, Gold, and Silver colour options and will be launched in India next month.
