Meizu m1 note will only cost 999 Yuan online, in store pricing will be higher


We are use to seeing prices of phones increase when they launch internationally compared to in China, but the pricing for the m1 note will be higher even for Chinese consumer who choose to buy in a physical store rather than online.

The Meizu m1 note surprised many of us with its low 999 Yuan price tag and specifications which normally show up on much more expensive flagship smartphones. A brief run down of the specification highlights include a 5.5-inch 1920 FHD display, 2GB RAM, 13 mega-pixel main camera, 5 mega-pixel front, large battery and attractive unibody design! Even with component costs lower than ever before 999 Yuan is low enough to make us wonder how Meizu can be making any money at all.

Well it appears they really aren’t making much profit on each m1 note sold at all which is reason why the online retail price in China is going to be lower than the in store price for the phone.

A few days earlier Meizu published that the m1 note would be available to buy at their 1000 physical stores across China, however due to transportation costs, premises rental and the cost of staff, the price would increase slightly, to how much we don’t know.

It is safe to assume that international pricing for the Meizu m1 note is also going to see a similar increase, let us all just hope that the latest Meizu still remains affordable once international fans are able to buy it.

How much would you be willing to pay for the Meizu m1 note once it launches internationally?

          As far I know I read from the Chinese source that the first batch gonna be TD-LTE but not FDD-LTE. So if you decide to import into your country yourself, you gonna look carefully.

    Anything under $250 should be fair enough, though I’ll probably still go for the JIaYu S3 instead.

      What do you prefer about the Jiayu S3 ?

      • Airyl
        January 4, 2015

        JiaYu is a brand that has consistently pumped amazing devices with fantastic build at very affordable prices. They also never spare quality over anything. The Jiayu G4 for example got a lot of flack because it had an HD screen instead of the normal FHD, but the G4’s screen way by far the best quality panel out of the bunch.

        Not undermine Meizu, they’ve got amazing phones, but I’m not sure what they sacrificed to get the phone to be this cheap. They have yet to prove themselves in the low end market, so I’ll probably be waiting until someone I know gets their hands on one to find out.

        TL;DR, I trust Jiayu more than Meizu in low price high performance market.

        • Simon
          January 4, 2015

          Fine, sounds good. Do you think the Jiayu S4 is also good for those who want < 5 inch screen ?

          • Airyl
            January 4, 2015

            If it exists, then definitely. The G3 and G4 are still among my favorite Chinese phones, seeing them go back to the smaller sizes would be great.

            • Simon
              January 4, 2015

              Hopefully it will be out in a relatively short period of time. The funny thing is, I never heard much noise regarding the Jiayu G6, not sure how well it did.

  5. January 4, 2015

    150$ and one cent only. that’s it baby.

    • Βαγγώνης Σαμαρέλος
      January 13, 2015

      Go find it then with 150. Or buy mi4 3g with 350! 😉

    Wait for Jiayu S3. It is the best all round performer with MTK 6752 SoC i feel.

    It’s $230 and $260 for the 16 and 32 GB respectively at Banggood. The presale prices are usually accurate on this site.
