Meizu’s M3 Note is shaping up to be a budget phone to want to own, but it is also shaping up to be a rival to Meizu’s own Meizu Metal range!
From leaks so far we have discovered that the new Meizu M3 Note will feature a new all alloy body rather than plastic, we have also seen that the budget smartphone could also have a fingerprint scanner in the home button, a 5.5-inch display, and Mediatek Helio P10 chipset plus larger 3500mA battery. All these features sound great, but don’t they also sound very similar to what the Meizu Metal range offers?
If the current specs hold true then Meizu will be competing not only with the likes of LeTV, Lenovo and Xiaomi in the mid-range smartphone market, but also with their own Meizu Metal and upcoming Meizu Metal 2. This sounds like an odd position to be in but Meizu have been in it before when they launch the original Meizu Metal last year, that shared many of the same features of the Meizu MX5 (including metal body, processor and screen size).
What makes this even more odd is the face a new teaser for the Meizu M3 Note reveals that the price could be just 1099 Yuan! A significant price as its the exact same RRP as the Meizu Metal.
Odd movements at Meizu but perhaps there is a method to their madness?
