News today tells how the mystery Meizu E phone, launching on the 10th August, could be a new mid-range device not a flagship.
Last week when the Meizu E rumours began everyone has simply believed the device will be a new flagship, even rumours of the specifications told of high-end hardware from a dual camera set up to curved 2K display, but this now seems to be well off the mark.
Earlier this week an image of the Meizu E leaked and looked a lot like the new MX6, now it seems the Meizu E will be a new mid-range smartphone, and possibly be a replacement to the Meizu Metal.
New specification details back this up with a 5.5-inch FHD display, Helio P10 chipset, 3GB RAM, 13 mega-pixel rear camera, and 3100mAh battery.
While another mid-ranger is very much welcomed by the market, the Meizu E is going to struggle with those specs when a similar priced Xiaomi Redmi Pro (yes, the Meizu is rumoured to cost around the same price) gets a more powerful Helio X20 chipset and dual camera feature. In fact the E’s specs read like a repacked Meizu Metal, a good phone, but not one for today’s market at that price point.
It’s still all very much a mystery,but it will be solved come the 10th August, which might also be the date we see Meizu’s smartwatch launch.
