There have been launched a few mid-range smartphones packed with identical features as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5. Moreover, they have been priced identically as well. One of them is the Meizu E3 that was released on March 21. Today, the manufacturer has announced this phone will go on sale on March 31 at 10:00 ama. The 6+64GB variant is priced at 1799 yuan ($286), while the 6+128GB comes at 1999 yuan ($318).
In terms of design, the Meizu E3 uses a full-metal body with nano-injection molding. The body thickness is 7.6mm. One of the main distinguishing design elements is the side-mounted fingerprint scanner. There are three color options including blue, champagne gold, and meteorite black.
The Meizu E3 is packed with a 5.99-inch 2160 x 1080 pixels resolution display that has adopted the trendiest 18”9 aspect ratio, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chip, a 3360mAh battery supporting 20W fast charging technology, a 12+20MP dual-camera on the back (there is a Sony IMX362 sensor with a 1.4 micron unit pixel area supporting full-pixel dual-core focus + 20MP Sony IMX350 sensor), and many more.
The manufacturer has redesigned the mBack key to the Super mBack visual key that provides the same functions as its physical variant. Say, a touch оf the button now gets you back; long press goes to the home screen, swipe left and right to switch apps and swipe up to pull all the apps.
As you see, the Meizu E3 comes with classic mid-range features that promise to provide a smooth and stable performance. Plus, the company has added a few distinguishing elements to stand out in the crowded market. Seems it will succeed.
