Meizu m2 note real photos, here is what the $130 Meizu looks like


meizu m2 note

We’ve seen the specifications, we’ve seen the renders an we have even seen the Antutu benchmarks, now it is time to see the Meizu m2 note in the flesh in real photos.

Anyone who has ever seen the current Meizu m1 note simply needs to imagine that original 5.5-incher with a physical home button and bingo! For those of you who like to see the real deal then keep scrolling to see real photos of the Meizu m2 note.

From a design point very little has changed. The phone is still made in a unibody fashion from a glossy plastic, although there is also now the option for a matt grey too.

The front of the phone sees the same 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 Sharp display as its predessor with a new physical home button in place of the trademark Meizu ‘Breathing Light”. Just like the button on the MX4 Pro you will be able to use double tap and swipe up on to the disply to move around Flyme and applicastions, but unlike the Pro there is no fingerprint scanner.

As there is no scanner in the button, Meizu have been able to make the shape a little more pleasing t to the eye. Their original reasoning for the blocky design on the MX4 Pro as the fact it allowed for better resolution.

The base of the Meizu m2 note has the same drilled out space for the microphone and single speaker. The two holes either side of the USB are screws which attach the rear panel to the main chassis.

The most surprising design change for Meizu die hards will be the change in power button placement. Since the Meizu M9 the power button has always been at the top of the phone ( a constant reason for many accidental screenshots), but the m2 note now has the volume rocker and power button on the left of the screen.

On the right we find a SIM tray which will either accept dual SIM cards or a single SIM with micro SD card.

Finally on to the rear of the phone. Like the m1 note we are going to see plenty of colour options released on the market. You will also notice the same placement of the 13 mega-pixel main camera and dual LED flash.

For those of you who have missed the Meizu m2 note launch the phone the phone measures in at 150.9 x 75.2 x 8.7mm with a built in 3100mAh battery and either 16 or 32GB of internal memory. Camera specificaions are a 13 mega-pixel rear camera with Gorilla Glass protection and F2.2 aperture with a 5 mega-pixel OV5670 front camea and F2.0 aperture.

Processing comes from a Mediatek MT6753 chip running at just 1.3Ghz with Mali T720 GPU and 2GB RAM. The MT6753 has native FDD-LTE , WCDMA, GSM, Bluetooth 4.0 and dual band WIFI. Flyme 4.0 ships as standard.

So now you have seen the Meizu m2 note in the flesh is it as glorious as you has hoped or less spectacular than you imagined?

    I loved the look of the M1 Note so I have no issues with this and as someone who isn’t a power user in the least sense I don’t mind the downgraded specs especially since it is cheaper.

        I can’t remember the last time I used an FM radio on my phone if ever. I mostly just use apps such as Tune In if I want to listen to certain station.

          You’re a rich person that can afford unlimited data 😉

            Not really, I hardly listen to the radio at all. I either load music onto my phone or sometimes I listen to sports talk radio. But in Bangkok there is free wifi virtually everywhere you go including in public parks.

      global band support! this is important! no more waiting! and also micro sd slot

  2. June 2, 2015

    Ehn! Andi, did you say MT6735? Shouldn’t that be the MT6753?

    That $130 price tag is in China I assume. Add a minimum of 30% markup by resellers and we’re at $169.

      What’s the problem?

      • Ruby
        June 2, 2015

        The problem is that unless you live in China, the title of the article is misleading.

        • Airyl
          June 3, 2015

          What’s misleading about it? The phone is priced at $130. The title doesn’t say anything about international pricing.

          • Ruby
            June 3, 2015

            It doesn’t say that the $130 only applies to China either. Like it or not, it’s misleading IMO.

              I agree and it’s not IMO, it’s a fact. It doesn’t make any sense say the “chinese price” of phones,

            • Ruby
              June 4, 2015

              Correct. Imagine if Amazon (US or Europe) listed prices of what a device would cost in India or China, then when you press the ‘Buy Now’ button, the price goes up by 35% – they would have a class action law suite against them the same day!

              eheheheh you’re totally right!

        • Angry Mobile Nerd
          June 3, 2015

          If you don’t like the resellers markup just stick it to them and go to China and buy one yourself.

            Just stating the obvious…I don’t know what you’re so angry about.

      This is a meizu, like it happens for another high level brands as xiaomi this is going to touch 220-230 dollars, the “old” meizu m1still costs between 180 and 219

      • cesc
        June 3, 2015

        also, remember this has a micro sd slot!

    Does this thing support US/CAN LTE bands or no?

    • cesc
      June 3, 2015

      this mtk supports ALL global bands, this is the most important vantage, we will not have to wait 2-3 months for occidental band compatiblity

    • njren
      June 3, 2015

      Looks like the answer is no. The usual FDD bands 1-3-7.

      • Alex C
        June 3, 2015

        Doesn’t make sense to me that phones have”World Mode LTE” and yet still can’t support North American bands.

    • njren
      June 3, 2015

      Looks like the answer is no. The usual FDD bands 1-3-7.

    I am wondering about the WORLDWIDE LTE support. Andi can you check for the supported frequencies?It must be written on the package.

    • csak1user

    sorry isnt the price that is said at the top of the article when you convert to dollars that not misleading thats what it would be without 3rd party sellers and inport duty. You can get the phone for $202 which is £128 this is without postage and the email from Dhl so they can release your package

  7. Joji Mow

    Does the phone support 3rd party launchers and widgets?

    • massimo musella
      July 28, 2015

      of course , I normally use Nova Launcher…no problems with the widgets

    during the last update 4.5.2 were eliminated from some language firmware (at the moment Italia and Russian).
    It seems to want to block the installation of gapps in the next release versions for C, A and U
    I think is a shocking news.
