Meizu’s Jack Wong had promised us 4 Meizu devices and the 3rd appears to be about ready to go on sale after showing up on GFX Bench flexing its affordable muscles.
Meizu have changed a great deal this year. First they have launched more than one product and their prices have been more competitive than ever. Still Xiaomi do have the more affordable Redmi, and Meizu plan to take a crack at it too!
The next Meizu phone looks like it is aimed squarely at the Redmi and Huawei Honor series and has slipped on to GFX Bench with a 5-inch display, 64Bit Mediatek MT6752 chipset, 2GB RAM, 16GB RAM and Mali T760. Not bad at all for an entry-level phone.
The details also state a resolution of 1920 x 1080 which could mean that Meizu are using a more common screen ratio for this new phone. Other details aren’t mentioned such as what cameras the phone supports and the battery size.
A launch date is rumoured to be before Christmas with a price of around 1300 Yuan or less.
