Meizu was once of the main Chinese smartphone companies selling to global customers. However, the company lost its relevancy and failed to build a solid competing strategy against the likes of Xiaomi, Huawei (pre-ban), and the BBK group. The company is still around with timely launches, but reports suggest that it is getting bought by Chinese automotive company Geely. However, this may not be a strategy to stop its smartphone business. Apparently, the company is, in fact, preparing the terrain for a brand new smartphone. The Meizu M2111 was just spotted in the Chinese TENAA certification agency. The device has a square-ish camera module for snappers and a punch-hole cutout. The back of the device confirms it’s part of the mBlu series.
Meizu “mBlu” M2111 specifications
The preliminary specifications list confirms we’re up for a 6.51-inch TFT display with a 1,600 x 710 resolution. That’s an unusual resolution, and we assume it will fit in the HD+ department. The device also has an 8 MP selfie camera. The main camera on the back is a 48 MP snapper. Unfortunately, the details about the auxiliary module are not provided. The handset will boast its unnamed Quad-Core processor clocked at 2.0 GHz. The device is paired with 4 GB of RAM and 6 GB of RAM. In terms of storage, the device will be available in variants with 64 GB, 128 GB, and 256 GB of Storage. It’s crazy to hear that a Quad-Core smartphone will have a version with 256 GB of Internal Storage. The device also has a micro SD card slot for further storage expansion.
The phone’s listed dimensions are 164.5 x 76.5 x 9.3 mm and it weighs in at 201 grams. The device will draw its powers from a huge 5,000 mAh battery. We don’t think that there will be any kind of fast charging with this device. The Meizu M2111 will come in Black, White, Gold, and Blue colorways. Other details such as software version, charging capabilities are still a mystery. But we don’t have big hopes. The device probably runs Android 11 with Flyme OS on top.
This seems to be a super-low-end smartphone. We assume that this device will be limited to the Chinese market, as it probably won’t do great in global markets.
Let’s see how Meizu will react in the other market segments now that it’s part of another company.
