Launched: Meizu M3X (Specifications & Features)


Meizu M3X

We only heard first yesterday about the Meizu M3X from a leaked GeekBench score. Today the phone has been officially announced, it sports a rather new design for a Meizu device and some more neat features. Let’s have a look!

Meizu M3X Specifications

  • MediaTek Helio P20 at 2.3Ghz CPU with Mali T880MP2 at 900MHz.
  • 3GB/4GB RAM
  • 32GB/64GB ROM
  • Camera: Primary 12.0MP Sony IMX386 LED flash
  • Camera: Secondary 5.0MP ƒ/2.0
  • Battery: 3200mAh
  • Flyme 6  based on Android 6.0.1 (Marshmallow)
  • Weight: 165g
  • Dimensions: 153.8mm x 76mm x 7.4mm

Meizu M3X

Meizu M3X Features

The Meizu M3X is covered in 2.5D glass on both sides with a CNC machined metal frame in-between, Meizu calls this “the most daring design” ever adopted from the Chinese manufacturer. The smartphone features a glossy back which some people say resembles the Honor 8 in some ways and it comes in four colors: black, gold, blue and white.

Meizu M3X

Meizu’s M3X will be the first smartphone on the market packing the MediaTek Helio P20 processor, MediaTek’s first 16nm chip with 40% increase in performance, and 60% in power efficiency.

Meizu M3X

At the same time it will support the new LPDDR4X-1600 memory and eMMC 5.1 flash memory, which compared to older LPDDR4 will save about 17% of energy.

Meizu M3X

The Meizu M3X will come with a 5.5-inch Sharp screen and TDDI technology, to significantly enhance the touch stability. On the camera side it’ll sport a Sony IMX386 sensor, 12 megapixel , F2.0 aperture, 6P custom lens, PDAF phase focusing with the new ArcSoft beauty algorithm. This is the same camera present on the Meizu PRO 6s and MX6, so pretty much the best they can offer.

Meizu M3X

The handset supports LTE Cat.6 300Mbps baseband and dual carrier aggregation. It packs a 3200mAh capacity battery with 12 hours battery life (at least on paper) and it’ll be able to fast charge at up to 18W.

Meizu M3X

The fingerprint scanner on the Meizu M3X is situated on the front of the device but it doesn’t sport an heart rate sensor like the Meizu Pro 6 Plus just announced as well.

The Meizu M3X will be available in two versions: 3GB + 32G for 1699 ($246) and 4GB + 64G for 1999 ($290).

Meizu M3X

That’s everything we know this far, we’ll keep updating the post as more details come out.

      Sadly it’s not Meizu phone lol… It’s a clone of Elephone s7… It’s a new low for a company like Meizu to clone other chinese phones…

            Elephone copied Samsung. The big difference is that the galaxy s7 edge screen is legitimately curved instead of using a flat panel with curved glass to loom pretty. Also, the meizu has a flat screen instead of curved. It looks more like a huawei phone if anything.

        No, this definitely looks like elephone s7, I just googled and it really does look identical, Meizu just changed the logo on the back and added “designed by Meizu” when in reality they haven’t designed or engineered the phone lol

              I never had one but one former work colleague in my previous job hat P5000 and it was disaster phone.. He even had only roaming signal on both sims.
              The sim cards were from the actual country..

              It explains the uses for said phenomenon. Also, elephone has a website where they obviously pay people to comment on elephone articles on hundreds of forums. Here is said website: http://www.elephone.hk/job

              There you can blatantly see them paying for comments on websites. Also goodwill, a very frequent commenter, exposed a guy for getting paid for comments. You can read that here:

              Amd not idiot as I don’t believe anything sht only certain things and even those I inspect if it’s really true.. Why am nit paid then?
              They are just from elephone and they have normal wages.. They are not much paid.. Maybe they’ll get some small bonus that’s it..

      Meizu is one of the oldest players in the field. My first China-phone was a Meizu (M8 FE) and I love that brand ever since.

      Concerning deisgn, not sure if I agree upon the statement that it’s an Elephone copy. Pretty sure Meizu and Elephone (and many others) take their ideas about design from many other factors. The Elephone S7 looks a bit like another S7 and maybe the Meizu M3X looks a bit like the both of them. Elephone H1 has a similar back-cover design as the M3X. And the list continues. Every brand does it. Take a look at the Elephone R9 and the iPhone 🙂 Does it matter? Not for me at least

You might be which is why I said at worst you’re blatantly lying/trolling. As far as your assessment of wikipedia goes, at the bottom, there are these things listed called sources. Click on them and you will see where the information comes from. Everything without said sources are noted and pages are monitored for vandalism. Stop relying on bad annecdotal evidence before spreading your stupidity. 🙂

        You mean Samsung rip off? No one really cares about this phone anyway. The real release from meizu is the pro 6 plus that has an exynos chip. This, like the elephone s7 is cheap garbage.

    Oh, this phone looks amazing! Too bad we will have to wait a bit of time before getting our hands on it! I think it looks worth enough to get it, besides Meizu never disappoints! haha

    So basically its an Ele S7 with bezels for $50 extra – at least it comes in White but overall I say ‘Try Harder Meizu’ .

    It’s M3x, not M3x Note, so why exactly is it in 5.5′ size?
    Price to specs ratio doesn’t look impressive at all. If Flyme is the only bright side here, it may not be enough…
