Meizu’s $100 range of phones is about to get a serious upgrade according to leaks, one that gives it some added security.
Meizu’s bargain basement ‘M’ phones, have generally been received well in China. They cost just over $100 and in the past have shipped with HD displays, 13 mega-pixel rear cameras, and a fully fledged Flyme install (not a cut down system like we see on Meizu phones).
This week rumours that Meizu could be preparing a new budget phone have appeared showing off 2 interesting new features for the entry-level device.
According to leaks the new Meizu M3S will feature an upgrade in materials from polycarbonate to metal, and that the physical home button on the phone will get a fingerprint scanner like the M3 Note, and other flagship Meizu phones.
Images of the new phone show the setting panel of Flyme indicating the model name as M3S (an updated version of the M3), and show the settings option to add a fingerprint.
Meizu have also started to tease a new device launch too, so don’t expect to have to wait too long before the M3S is made official.
