Meizu schedules launch event for 13th June, Metal 2 a reality?


Meizu have scheduled a launch event for June 13th, which is one day before the expected launch of the OnePlus 3.

Only recently we talked about how Meizu are believed to be working on an update to the Meizu Metal. The phone — presumably known as the Metal 2 — will bear a spec sheet that is very much reminiscent to that of the m3 note. The Meizu Metal 2 even got TENAA certified.

This includes a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080p display, a 1.8GHz MediaTek Helio P10 processor, 2/3GB RAM, 16/32GB ROM, 13 mega-pixel rear camera, 5 mega-pixel front facing camera, 4G support, and a  4000mAh battery. I’d be in a fix if someone asked me to point of differences between this and the Meizu m3 note.

Either way, Meizu seem to think otherwise. The launch event is set and invites have been sent, with the event scheduled to start 2pm. We’ll stay up to speed with the happenings, stay tuned if you’re keen to know how it all pans out!

    It’s stated in the picture in Chinese as follows:
    “Think think small is good.”
    So it may be a phone smaller than M3 Note.

    I think it might be a phone for Chinese market, with Flyme based on YunOS, not Android.

      Technically Yun itself is based on Android. Eventually all Meizu models will run Flyme ontop of Yun. That was part of the reason Ali Group invested so much money in Meizu.

        Technically, Yun is not (or not fully) compatible with Android – different runtime environment.
        Global ROMs will remain Android based, or they will re-work Yun to more Android compatilble form. So far Yun causes so many problems that it’s almost useless to users outside China.

          I didn’t say it was fully compatible but it is based on Android. I have used it a number of times in the past and haven’t run into too many issues with it. It took some work but I got Play Store and Google Services working on it.

            I’d rather say, they’re both linux based and there’s packet compatibility, but it isn’t as simple as ‘Android based’.
            That’s the case with it – gapps running with problems and then lot’s of apps refuse to work. Forums are full of these problems, so no sense in quoting them again, but let’s just keep in mind that Meizu Metal didn’t get very popular outside China because of YunOS.

              Yun OS was created using AOSP so it is in fact Android based. Android and Gapps are completely separate.
