More leaked photos of the case from a purported Meizu Blue Charm smartphone, plus invites hint at a bright choice of colours.

The Meizu Blue Charm, scheduled for launch on the 23rd December rumoured to cost less than 1000 Yuan, is a departure from Meizu who have in the past said they would not enter the entry-level phone market.

Times have changed though and so, it seems, has Meizu’s reluctance to go head to head with the Xiaomi Redmi, and Huawei Honor 3C phones.

Photographed here are more purported photos of the rear shell from a Meizu Blue Charm, we assume that this is the 4.6-inch display model that is physically similar in size to the iPhone 5C.

More interesting though is the leaked slide from an internal Meizu presentation which shows the Meizu Blue Charm to cost 799 Yuan and the Blue Charm Note at 999 Yuan. Both phones will come with similar Mediatek 64bit hardware and LTE.

Chinese media who have received the Blue Charm launch invitation have quickly discovered that the space inside the box is roughly the same size as an iPhone 5C and that the colours of each box a different representing the colours available for the phone (red, white, yellow, green and blue).

Stay tuned for more news.

      I would be happy already if International webshops are shipping the new Meizu budget phones in January.

      Who’s going to make them? Forget the MX4 Pro, the original MX4 is still hopelessly backlogged. If Meizu doesn’t spread out their product introductions, you’re going to see more Foxconn workers jumping from the roofs.

      The only thing I can think of in this price range is a bracelet or smartwach.

    If the prices are true, then it is a very good competitor of Xiaomi Redmi series.

      No chance if not dual sim. Dual sim is a must in markets like china, india and emerging markets.

    What’s weird is the camera is in a different position in the 2 pictures, they both cannot be correct. If the coloured ones are real it also seems meizu has gone back to its cloning roots. Sad really, of all the camera positions and all the colours they could have chosen they do a straight 5C clone, come on have some originality. I am still interested though, wanted a low cost meizu for ages.

      It’s the New Meizu, which comes with a whole lot more attitude. The “leaked” photos are the real back covers. The boxes are just the invitations and they’re meant to be a not-so-subtle dig at Apple. There are other promotional pics featuring head shots of young hipsters taking a bite out of an apple. So no cloning, but still rather insecure and still unable to step out of the shadow of Cupertino. Meizu have had *by far* their most successful sales year, yet have done it by examining everything their competitors are doing (pricing, product range, features) and then regurgitating it all in Meizu’s own language. Hard to argue with success, but a bit sad if you were hoping for more quirkiness like glowing circles and Smart Bars.

      These colored cases in the boxes are most likely iPhone 5c cases. Chinese media have received their invites for the event with these boxes and these cases inside. Just like the iPhone 5c, the Meizu budget phone will come in various colors, that is what they want to show.

      • December 14, 2014

        That’s right, those are iPhone 5C in the boxes. The size is almost the same

          ahhh yeah sorry I misunderstood. Ok well that is good news. These could well be game changers for meizu. Just hope the softwares not too buggy.
