Octacore Meizu Blue Charm Note teaser! Meizu to attack Xiaomi

meizu blue charm note

The Xiaomi Redmi Note is everywhere on the web, what better time for Meizu to attack than tease their own octacore Note model.

The above image speaks of an alleged octacore Meizu model called the Blue Charm Note (not the first time we have heard this name). The phone looks to be a direct competitor to Xiaomi’s Redmi Note and the first shot across the bow by rival Meizu.

Gizchina News of the week

Specifications listed on the teaser include a 5.5-inch 1080p display, octacore MT6592 processor, 8 mega-pixel camera and Flyme 3.0. The 8MP camera might seem like a downgrade compared to the Redmi Note’s 13MP, but Meizu have some great things with camera optimisation, if the MX3 is anything to go by then the Blue Charm Note will have a very capable sensor.

The price has been obscured but we know the Meizu Blue Charm will cost in the 1000 Yuan range. After months of octacore smartphones, Meizu could be the first to really make a splash!

      I have voiced this a million times. It did die down a bit but its slowly creeping back in. Its like a Xiaomi fan site. Meizu looks better and the os is much better. Meizu has a big exciting year ahead branching out internationaly and propperly international not just a few other places in the Asian region. They also have a huge line up of great phones waiting to be released, I suspect they wont just be in batches of 1000 that sell out in x amount of minutes either lol.

      Back during it’s launch the Redmi received a lot of praise for what it offered, high specs and an extremely low price. Then it became one of the best selling phones in China. After that, a whole bunch of other manufacturers decided to launch budget models with high specs as well. It’s not that the world revolves around Xiaomi, it’s just that they started the trend, and now everyone wants a piece of it. It’s similar to how almost every smartphone was compared to the iPhone back when it first launched.

    Why is this model, or the Xiaomi, called “Note” in the first place?
    None of your articles so far mentioned anything about any feature, like digitizer, stylus or specialised software, to deal with hand written input and its recognition.
    So, why Note?

    Fake. You won’t see any new Meizu before late summer/early autumn, a fact that’s previously been posted on this site. You gotta work on your narrative. There might be some sort of refresh to the MX3 in the interim, but that would be all. And Meizu would never, ever be seen as somehow “catching up” to Xiaomi with a near-identical spec device and lame wordplay for the name. Competing for demographics, sure. Product, no.
