Meizu E launched only its the Meizu M3E full specs


meizu m3e launched

Meizu today launched their new E series phone with the official name of the Meizu M3E and a price lower than originally expected.

In the run up to the Meizu M3E launch we had seen various leaks from what the handset might be packing under the hood to what the device would actually look like. Well some of those rumours were accurate and others not so.

What the Meizu M3E isn’t is a flagship beast with dual cameras, curved display and Samsung chipset, but what it is is a phone with the same design as the MX6 with lower specs and an affordable price tag.

Think of the M3E as a new Meizu Metal, only now it looks better finished and also comes in colour options including Blue, Rose Gold and Meizu’s trademark grey.

On the hardware front the M3E has a 5.5-inch display with 1920 x 1080 resolution offering a pixel density of 403ppi and 450nit brightness. Above the display is a 5 mega-pixel sensor with F2.0 aperture and FotoNation 2.0 software for enhancing selfies, and below is a fast fingerprint scanner.

The rear camera is a PDAF Sony IMX258 13 mega-pixel model with F2.2 aperture and dual LED flash.

Internally Meizu have stuck with Mediatek to offer the phone with a Helio P10 chipset, along with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory (and yes there is room for an SD card). A 3100mAh battery also finds its way in to the 7.9mm shell with fast charging function.

Flame comes on the Meizu M3E as standard, but is based on YunOS meaning plenty of Alibaba apps and functions will be pre-installed. Pricing in China is lower than expected at only 1299 Yuan ($195) but that’s only slightly cheaper than the more powerful, dual camera equipped Redmi Pro! And I know which I would choose.

      When did iPhone start putting their camera in the middle and start using an oval shaped fingerprint button?

        OK let’s say “overall design => missed” as this design has been already seen over and over, may it be Iphone or HTC inspired.

          For a $200 phone the design isn’t bad. The camera on the other hand is that of a $100 phone.

            What are you talking about? imx 258 is the same sensor used in One plus x, mi4c, redmi pro etc. It’s one of the better sony sensors. Probably the camera is the saving grace of this phone.

              f/2.2 aperture in 2016 is not good. There is more to a camera than just the sensor.

          I was talking more of the rear of the phone with the metal, antenna lines and camera placement.

    It’s very annoying that you refer in chinese market prices. Yes the price for meizu is slightly cheaper from the redmi pro , but for all of us outside the China the price to order from resellers the redmi pro base edition is about 300$. Your site readers is outside of China, so think about it.

    Very friendly from a daily basis reader of your site.

    • balcobomber25
      August 10, 2016

      It would be impossible to quote any price other than the Chinese price as every reseller charges something different and their prices are constantly fluctuating.

      The Redmi Pro you mentioned is a prime example, right now on resellers you can get anywhere from $260-366 and those prices are changed from yesterday and will be changed again tomorrow. It’s much safer for them to just quote the official price.

            Dear it was my mind about YunOS i comment only about things that i had or used. ive use the implemented yunos 3.0 version on my galaxy and it was horrible. it may be good for china and chinese regions but not internationally because the bloatware and nearly all apps are chinese. nothing was translated in english or other languages. my version had many bugs. if yunos team develop a final version for international users? Than they win it when not than not.

          No it’s not.
          YunOS is YunOS. And Android is Android. Both different operating systems.
          Flyme is only a shell and it can run over Android, or over YunOS.

          Both systems are pretty compatible, but not fully, so some problems possible.
          YunOS uses different runtime than Android.
          YunOS is Alibaba system, which means it is Alibaba services and China oriented!

            Thats right its China oriented but they advertise it internationally in Forums like xda and other. What i meant is thats not suitable for international using! You may use it in China but not in Europe or usa or outside china

    Helio P10 is no where is the league of SD650/652. With both Xiaomi abd Le Eco having alternatives with SD650/652 in the same price range. Every Helio P10 device is a fail.
    Mediatek needs to start offering Helio P10 for 100-150$ or Sub 100$ phones. Or else they are dead. Helio P10 at over 150$ doesn’t make sense.

    They need to provind Helio x10 or X20 at 150-250$ price range.

    • realjjj
      August 10, 2016

      Meizu has the Note 3 with the same SoC at 799CNY(120$).
      The cheapest Helio x20 device is the 360 Mobile N4 at 899CNY(135.5$). The second cheapest is the N4S at 1199CNY.
      The P10 competes with SD617, the P20 with SD625 in features and price. How a certain device maker prices a device,is not up to Qualcomm or Mediatek.
