Both Meizu and Xiaomi have great looking budget phones with large batteries, and LTE support, but could the colourful Mlias M52 be an outside contender?
The Mlais M52 is a budget Redmi Note style Android phablet, but it isn’t a cheap knock off but rather a very capable and feature packed device in its own right.
It is clear that Mlais have been inspired by the Redmi Note, but looking over the hardware it seems evident that they also care that they have produced a budge phablet with the best specifications possible at minimal cost.
Internally the hardware is very similar to the latest Meizu m1 note, featuring the same octacore MT6752 64bit chipset, 2GB RAM and 16GB. Camera specifications are also on par with a 13 mega-pixel sensor on the rear and 8 mega-pixel on the front, they even got the battery size right at 3200mAh!
What it offers over the M1 note though is dual SIM and a micro SD card bay, international availability now, and even a promised Android 5.0 OTA update!
Today Mlais have revealed new colour options for the M52 that include standard black and white, plus blue and red models.
