After the release of the flagship Meizu Pro 6 it’s time for the company to look back into the budget waters and give the price oriented sailors something to toy with too. That being said it’s only logical that it’s going to be another model from the Blue Charm lineup in form of Meizu M3. And the launch should be already tomorrow so April 25th !
From the TENAA certification pictures and a real one from Weibo leak it’s clear, that the design is somewhat similar to the previous generation Meizu M2. The same polycarbonate shell and 2.5D glass, but at least with the fingerprint sensor integrated in the Home mTouch button and USB Type-C connector, maybe even with fast charging support.
Specs are pretty much as expected, 5-inch HD display, Mediatek Helio P10 (MT6755) with 2 GB RAM and 16 GB of storage, 13 Mpix + 5 Mpix cameras and FlyMe 5.1.3 based on Android 5.1. The battery capacity of 2800 mAh is nothing stellar especially compared with the 4000 mAh one in the Meizu Note 3 bigger brother, but with the lower resolution it should be enough. LTE Cat. 6 support is also a step up from its predecessor.
The Meizu M3 should be available in white, blue, grey, pink and gold colors and the expected price tag in China is 599 yuan (92$). The competition in the budget sector is extremely fierce and unforgiving so let’s see how the new Meizu will deal with the hungry sharks.
