Meizu confirms M3 Note launch an alloy body in teaser


meizu m3 note teaser

Earlier today Meizu confirmed the launch date and hinted at the material of the Meizu M3 Note in a new teaser.

Meizu released invitation and launch details today for the next generation Meizu Meilan phone, aka the Meizu M3 Note and with it also hinted at an all new build material for the range.

The teaser tells us that their launch date will be held on April 6th and show that polycarbonate may have been ditched in favour of an alloy chassis. The choice to move to metal is generally a welcome one, but in Meizu’s case it blurs the Meizu range a little and makes phone choice a little confusing after all isn’t the Meizu Metal meant to be the be an up class Meilan phone?

In other leaks we have learned the Meizu M3 Note will come with an 8-core Mediatek MT6755M chipset (a Helio P10 with Mali T860 GPU), a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 display, 5 mega-pixel front camera, 13 mega-pixel rear and options for either 2GB + 16GB memory or 3GB + 32GB memory.

Last but not least the M3 Note is expected to have a fingerprint scanner home button, larger 3500mAh battery and a still get a thinner body than previous phones.

In addition to the M3 Note, Meizu are also expected to launch a Meizu Pro 6 phone in the coming month too.

    without Mediatek x20 or SD 650/652, game seems over before the start.

      X20 is most likely gonna be in the MX6.

          Who knows if it even comes out at this point. All we have heard about is the Pro 6. Maybe they are scrapping the MX line completely and will have multiple versions of the Pro 6. After using the MX5 for 8 months I would serious consider the next Meizu flagship, especially after the Mi5 let me down.

            how xiaomi Mi5 let you down bro 😮

              First it is ugly, those black borders on the display make it look so cheap to me. To me the design looks like a poor knockoff of a Samsung phone. Second the camera is a huge letdown, usually Xiaomi flagships are known for having one of the best cameras among flagships. The Mi5’s is good but nowhere near that of the Galaxy S7, LG G5 and others. Third is LTE bands, more and more Chinese brands are starting to adopt global LTE bands in their flagship models, there really is no reason Xiaomi (one of the biggest in the industry) can’t include those bands. Finally the battery, my friend’s Mi5 barely makes it through a work day before needing a charge.

              Compared to how I felt about the Mi3 and Mi4 this one is a huge letdown.

      P10 should be more than enough. The day they start supporting LTE 800Mhz I would happily buy this…

      Why? Are you actually aware that the P10 is absolutely sufficient for games and day to day performance? It is basically on par with Huawei’s Kirin 930 found in the P8 and that handles every task with ease, and is 20-25% faster than the SD615, so I say that’s a great chip for a mid-range device.

        it might be sufficient for you mate, but for me without SD820, “keep it yourself”, ask me why? because I’m a smart phone gamer, I need to run the game in 60fps and have to record this game 60fps, without SD820 it can’t be possible, and heating issue is a fact

        • Steven Fox

          Well, there is plenty of price difference there, the P10 is a very reliable chip at 1080p. If you want to pay 450$ and above for an SD820 device, be my guest.

    Specs seem good enough. Big processors don’t always translate butter smooth performance. Keep the price down Meizu.

    Again metal. I was so excited about the M3 Note, it could have been the perfect smartphone for me right now. But because they use metal, I will have to look elsewhere.

      what’s your problem with metal?

      • tauerman
        April 4, 2016

        scratches, gets dents, feels cold to the hand, makes the phone more expensive, feels hot when phone heats up.
        I like the feeling of “plastic”/polycarbonate in the hand more.
