Updated with full official specifications.The Meizu launch is still on going, but the news that we were waiting for has already been announced! Here are the specifications and a few details about the new Meizu m1!
It seems like most of the rumours surrounding the Meizu m1, or Meilan in China, were correct, but there have still been some great surprises!
First of all the Meizu m1 is a 5-inch phone, so larger than the 4.7-inch Xiaomi Redmi 2. In fact Meizu have been making a lot of comparisons between the Xiaomi Redmi range of the m1 and m1 note during the launch and looking at the specs it’s easy to see why.
The design of the 5-inch Meizu is very similar to the m1 note with the same unibody polycarbonate plastic body, SIM tray and colour options, with the addition of the new pepper mint colour that Li Nan leaked a few days ago.
Above the 5-inch display, which incidentally has a resolution of slightly higher than 720p for a pixel density of 300ppi, is a 5 mega-pixel front facing camera with F2.0 aperture! That’s the same as the camera on the m1 note, and similar to the sensor on the Meizu MX4 Pro.
The rear camera is surprising too, and has turned out to be a 13 mega-pixel sensor rather than an 8 mega-pixel shooter!
Gizchina News of the week
Under the hood Meizu have only given partial specifications of the processor which they say is a 1.5Ghz, quad-core, 64bit chipset capable for Antutu of over 30,000 points. In our mind this can only leave one possible chip, the quad-core MT6732 processor (the same as the Ulefone BePro). Meizu didn’t mention the amount of RAM, and that lack of comment suggests it does have just 1GB, but it will need to be confirmed at the end for the event.
Also inside the 8.9mm think phone is a lightweight magnesium body giving an overall weight of 128G, a 2610mAh battery and 8GB of internal memory. Of course 8GB is nothing these days, so Meizu have added an SD card slot to the phone (a first for Meizu phones) which is capable of accepting 128GB cards.
It’s all adding up to be a great little device and includes GPS, 4G LTE, Glonass, Bluetooth 4.0 etc.
Pricing in China is 699 Yuan ($110) with the first phones avaialbel for pre order on the 5th of Feb! Amazing looking phone for the money that we cannot wait to try!
