Oh heck! Not another new budget Meizu!


This is quite worrying! Another new budget Meizu sighted in Antutu tests! Is it a replacement to the M2 Note?

Normally we would get excited about the sighting of a new smartphone from one of the more popular phone makers, but in the case of Meizu we are filled with dread. This is a company who already released 8 phones in the past 12 months, killing off devices just months after they initially launched.

So if you are the owner of the Meizu m2 note it might be time to get a little worried. Specs for this mystery new Meizu include a Mediatek MT6753 chipset, 2GB RAM, 32GB memory, 1920 x 1080 display, 13.1 mega-pixel main camera and Android 5.1 Lollipop. In the Antutu tests the phone weighed in at 38,792 points.

In addition to the Antutu scores a Chinese Ministry of Communications certification for a new 5.5-inch Meizu device with 150.7 x 75.3 x 8.2mm had also recently been filled.

We’re not sure if Meizu are going to launch another Meizu note model (the m3 already?) or if this is just a variation on the current m2 note lineup. We will keep our eyes on the news and bring the latest to you.

    It could be the 32gb version of m2 note

      Sounds exactly like it.

    Same specs but an higher antutu bench? Seems unlikely to me… They’ve been forced to repleace the m1 with the m2 lineup, but i don’t see the point to launch the same phone with the same specs… And also, why would it have more raw power with same soc and ram?!
    I feel like it’s an m3 prototype with an helio p10 on board, but it’s been readed wrong by antutu or maybe they messed up the system files in order to make antutu read this as an mt6753… Dunno, but 2 phone with the same exact specs seems unlikely… Maybe it could be a variant like a battery phone, but how come it has an higher score?!

      That would make sense but hopefully it isn’t a P10 powered variant as the benchmark score is very low for that chip and/or is REALLY poorly optimized!

        Prototypes are prototypes because they aren’t the final version of the product xD so no wonder if a p10 powered device, at the beginning of his development, scores a really low result… That said, there still is no proof this is a p10 soc, just sayin’ it wouldn’t be that strange a low score on a prototype

      Several companies have figured out ways to achieve higher scores with the same hardware. Antutu is very easy to cheat on which makes it unreliable to really gauge anything other than a score.

    Kind of out of place this headline.
    This kind of approach might be suitable for Elephone, Doogee or another useless low end chinese company who launches phone after phone…

    If Meizu plans to release a phone in India, it should be taken as an indicator that there is another device in the works. At least, that seems to be the pattern so far.

    What about marshmallow for their devices ????

      After the disaster that was Lollipop, I am not sure I want Marshmallow right away.

    Like others have said it sounds like its just a 32GB version of the M2. If it is a new product it would make zero sense and Meizu would be heading down the path of Elephone.

    A new Meizu phablet appeared on TENAA. It probably will be M3 Note
    considering specs and photos. But it only listed with YunOS yet.

    It’s
    pretty much same with M2 Note except few differences like thinner body, 2.5D glass
    (judging by photos), IPS display and a better chip which is either X10 or P10.

    Clearly a Redmi Note 2 contender.

    Android 6 aka marshmallow is the best android os to date ! It significantly improves over previous versions. I just downloaded marshmallow launcher to my blu studio 5 ics 4.1 and it rocks so far.

      So you downloaded an Android Launcher and think that it is the best Android OS till date. Interesting.

    There must be lots of 6753 chips out there, I`ve never seen one score that high in 3D, especially at 1080p!
