December 23 will be a big day for Meizu. This is when they will launch their new brand, “Meizu Blue Charm”. The products in this brand include cell phones, smart bands, a router, tablet, and even a television set. Based on the invitation to the launch which was sent out yesterday, it looks like it will be similar to the iPhone 5C. Although Meizu will release a lot of products, the stars of the show will still be, first and foremost, their cell phones. Meizu is planning to release two versions of the Meizu Blue Charm cell phone with different sizes. Only the big-screened version will make its debut on December 23.
It was recently reported that there is a version with a 5-inch display screen and a version with a 5.5-inch display screen. One will simply be called the “Meizu Blue Charm” phone, while the other will be called the “Meizu Blue Charm Note”. The one that will make its first appearance on December 23 is the Meizu Blue Charm Note which is the one with a 5.5-inch display screen and 16:9 contrast ratio. Its CPU chip is MTK’s MT6752 octa-core processor. As for memory, it has 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM. The Meizu Blue Charm Note also sports a 5mp front-facing camera and 13mp rear-facing camera. Not surprisingly, it will retain Meizu’s classic small round Home button.
Whereas the Meizu Blue Charm Note will appear a few weeks from now, we can expect the Meizu Blue Charm phone to be launched some time during the 2015 Q1 season. The Meizu Blue Charm and Meizu Blue Charm Note may cost 799 RMB (129.08 USD) and 999 RMB (161.39 USD).
In addition, a blueprint of the Meizu Blue Charm cell phone’s design was released online.
2014 has been quite a year for Meizu. First there was the release of the flagship phone, the Meizu MX4 Pro. Now, they plan to close the year by introducing to a brand new line of products. I wonder what is up their sleeves for 2015.
