Launched back in October, the mid-range Meizu Metal, otherwise called Meizu Blue Charm Metal, was gaining quite a following owing to its substantial resemblance with M2 Note and an engaging metal build.
The company’s latest Meizu Metal alternative has appeared on GFXBench under the codename Meizu M57AC. This new variant is expectedly being brought forth as a smaller alternative of the Meizu Metal. As per the listings of GFXBench, it will feature a considerably smaller display, a 4.6-inches panel, as compared to the 5.5 inches Meizu Metal which indicates that it could be christened Meizu Metal Mini by the manufacturers.
As per GFXBench, the Meizu M57AC will pack in the 4.6-inch display with 1920×1080p screen resolution. The smartphone is also said to feature 2GB of RAM along with 16GB of internal storage. The Meizu Metal Mini will be driven by Media Tek’s 64-bit MT6753 octa-core chipset along with Mali T720 GPU.
In terms of camera, the handset embraces a 12MP rear snapper, featuring auto as well as touch focus, and a 4.7 MP front-facing shooter designed specifically for selfies. The device is also reported to feature Android 5.1 Lollipop.
The specs are quite analogous to the Meizu Metal. The device embraces a smaller footprint than its big-screened counterpart and the SoC will also be different because of same reason, the Chinese company is apparently aiming to make this mini version exceptionally economical.
The Meizu Metal MT6753 is quite adequate but it is definitely inferior in specs to the Helio X10 (MT6795 SoC) which was featured in the Meizu Metal and also in Meizu M2 Note. The company is expected to launch the device in the upcoming weeks.
