Meizu Metal 2 looks set to launch with 4000mAh battery

TENAA has shed some light on the upcoming Meizu Metal 2 with a new leak and claims of a larger 4000mAh battery.

Expected to see the light of day some time in June, the Meizu Metal 2 has recently been sighted at TENAA with a similar all metal body to the original Metal but larger 4000mAh battery.

We’ve become quite used to Meizu’s strategy now, and so were not surprised to see that the Meizu Metal 2 is only a slight upgraded on the original phone, and in turn isn’t massively different from the Meizu M3 Note which already went on sale earlier this year.

From the TENAA leaks we see that the Metal 2 has a 5.5-inch FHD display, 1.8Ghz Helio P10 chipset, 5 mega-pixel front camera, 13 mega-pixel rear and built-in 4000mAh battery.

Sources also say that the Metal 2 will come in two variants with options for 2GB + 16GB or 3GB + 32GB (both with room for up to 128GB SD cards).

We do wonder what the point of this phone is though. The specs are largely unchanged from the original Metal, and are quite similar to the already on sale M3 Note, so why wait for this?

    If anything the original Metal is the better phone.

      This one will be more power efficient, and probably will have better 4G compatibility, but if you have the M1 Metal, there is no point in getting this.

    Lol. This will a degrade from 1st gen metal.
    Metal series should have had Helio X SOC. 1st had Helio x10 this one should have had Helio x20.

    Helio P10 is a degrade over Helio x10.

    No reality filter again? How does it make sense to you for Meizu to launch the same phone (Note 3) but with a different name?

    Well as an owner of the original this looks like a downgrade! Would rather have the X10 over the P10 any day, all Meizu’s recent releases are confusing as they don’t seem to have any direction.

    Meizu are veering into the path that Samsung left a little over a year ago. Too many similar products.

      It could be only for local market in China, with YunOS instead of Android. This way it would make perfect sense, otherwise it’s like you say.

    I believe they ran out that metal 1 line and they are replacing it with this, as they are out of stock. That’s my guess.
