FDD LTE Meizu m1 note approved for sale


meizu blue charm m1 launch

The Meizu m1 note is one of the phones we are all watching however international fans can’t get too excited until the FDD-LTE version of the phone is available which should be very soon.

Meizu have had the Meizu M463U phone approved for sale in China, which is also great news for us as this is the codename for the China Unicom version of the phone with support for WCDMA and FDD-LTE networks.

The first lot of Meizu m1 note phones launched in China are TD versions that only support China Mobile 3G and LTE networks. Outside of China those TD m1 notes will only work with GSM (so be aware when ordering the from resellers).

Although the Unicom version is now allowed to be sold in China we still don’t know when it will launch, nor do we know the price for the phone (China Mobile phones sometimes get lower pricing through subsidies).

The Meizu m1 note launched just before Christmas on 23rd December. The phone is the most affordable Meizu to date at 999 Yuan in China and features a 5.5-inch display, 64bit processor, LTE and 13 mega-pixel camera.

Keep posted for more details of the m1 note and official international pricing once it has been announced.

      You are correct, that is the amount resellers are selling at the moment

        But only pre-sale! i think the price will drop a little bit, after getting one is no problem. i think manufacturing limits set the price a little higher.

        don’t think so 🙁
        now pre-sale price is $225-$250 it will drop to $200-$220 if there is no shortage in supply, For $180 or sub $180 you better start looking for something like Jiayu S3 🙂

    If it’s between $200-$250 people will choose another products, the just announced Zenphone 2 seems to be a good alternative for $199

      The resellers are selling it already above 200 USD as expected. Not sure if a Chinese webshop is offering the zenfone 2 for 199 USD at the moment, maybe they also are going to add extra amount of money to cover the costs.

      It has been announced as Dual SIM, Dual Active (at the press conference) with a lot of FDD-LTE-bands (as shown on its website).

      Take a look at the video from press conference, at about 25:57 min. mark.

      For the pricing, we’ll have to see the real world prices.

    Ah, I was a little too eager for the good news: I though this meant the M1 FDD-LTE was on sale from today. Well, just have to wait some more then.. 😀

    What’s the difference between the models sold on ibuygou , to2c, aliexpress and other websites? All of them announce their product as compilant with fdd

      You’ve to check the phones FDD-LTE-bands against the (FDD-)LTE-bands used in your country.

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_LTE_networks

      But you should check that with every phone you order from a foreign country, BEFORE ordering it!
