With the Meizu Blue Charm phone launch later this month, the Zhuhai phone maker has slashed pricing of it’s older MX2, could this be a sign of things to come?
Recently in a Weibo post, Meizu VP Li Nan said that the low-cost Blue Charm phone, or in Chinese “Meilan”, couldn’t cost 799 Yuan as rumoured as that would cut in to the quality of the phone. Normally that would be the end of that, but in the past he also send that the MX4 Pro couldn’t cost just 2500 Yuan with 2K display, yet that’s exactly what we got.
Still there might be something to his post, and perhaps the Blue Charm won’t cost 799, but instead 699 Yuan. 699 Yuan would certainly hurt sales of the Xiaomi Redmi, and it would mean the company are replacing their current low-cost phone (the Meizu MX2) with a phone of the same price.
As for the MX2, it was a good phone when it was released as a flagship a few years ago, and it still isn’t a bad device now, especially at 699 Yuan.
How much do you think the Meizu Blue Charm will cost? And are you likely to buy one?
