Meizu announced the brand new Meizu M3 Note mid-range smartphone yesterday. The phone was everything we expected it to be and even more. One of the best features of the device was its pricing, as it starts at an amazing 799 Yuan ($125) in China. While you won’t be able to get hold of the phone at this price internationally, OPPOMART has listed the phone for pre-order at $169. Considering the specs on board, this isn’t too bad.
So, you get the 2GB RAM + 16GB ROM version of the M3 Note for $169, while for the 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM version, you will have to shell out $50 more. There are three colors available for both the variants, namely Gray, Gold and Silver. The phone features a metal body, abandoning the polycarbonate material used in earlier generations.
As for the specs, the Meizu M3 Note comes with the Mediatek Helio P10 octa-core processor clocked at 1.8GHz. Like mentioned above, there will be two variants, 2GB/ 3GB RAM and 16GB / 32GB storage. There will be a 5.5-inch 1080p display on board. At the back, the M3 Note comes with a 13MP camera while up front there will be a 5MP shooter.
The new Meizu devices comes with a physcial home button embedded with a mtouch fingerprint sensor. You also get a large 4100mAh battery which is enough for more than a day’s usage.
Overall, the M3 Note is a well balanced device, featuring a great design, bright display, decent processor and a large battery inside to power it all day long. As you can see, the third party pricing is much higher than the official price tag, but then if you live outside of China, this seems to be the only way that you can get hold of the device. [source]
