Almost two weeks ago the Chinese manufacturer Meizu announced its latest smartphone, the Meizu M3 Note. This is another smartphone offering great specs, while still maintaining a low price tag.
The Meizu M3 Note comes with a 5.5-inch Full-HD (1920 x 1080) screen, is powered by the MTK Helio P10, featuring 8 Cortex-A53 cores split into two different clusters with different clock speed. 4 Of them are clocked at 1,8GHz and 4 of them are clocked at just 1GHz. Which should be pretty good for daily usage, but you shouldn’t have too high expectations of the GPU in this SoC. What it does mean is that the 4100mAh battery should be enough to get you through at least one day of extensive usage, and with below average usage you may even be able to squeeze two full days out of it.
The device offers two different storage options, 16 or 32GB of internal storage. Note that the 16GB version only comes with 2GB of RAM, while the 32GB version comes in with 3GB of RAM. The phone is dual-sim, and as seen in the past, one of the slots can be used to expand your storage as well.
Let’s get into the camera side of things, the phone has got a 13MP shooter at the back with PDAF autofocus, and at the front of the phone you can find the 5MP selfie camera. Something you may not expect from a phone in this price range is a fingerprint scanner which is embedded into the home button, and if we may believe Meizu it could register a fingerprint in just 0.2 seconds. And if that isn’t enough, they did an amazing job on the design as well. The phone boasts a 6000 series aluminum unibody and T2X-1 glass on top of the display.
The Meizu M3 Note will go on sale on the 11th of April in China. The prices are as following: CNY 799 ($125) for the 16GB model and CNY 999 ($155) for the 32GB model. We don’t have any information if and when the phone will become available in other regions.
