For the past few days, we have been hearing about the Meizu Pro 8 flagship. Meizu recently confirmed that the phone will be the first and the exclusive device to feature the newly announced Helio X25 deca-core processor. In fact, in the past couple of days, we have seen the device hit a few benchmarking apps like Geekbench and AnTuTu.
While we are expecting to see the Meizu Pro 6 as well as the MX6 flagship smartphones in the coming months, the company CEO Huang has just revealed that the Meizu will first announce the Meizu M3 Note budget smartphone. While this announcement may seem to have come out of the blue, we had previously seen a leak about the M3 Note smartphone, which kind of confirmed its existence.
The CEO has promised to reveal more details tomorrow, but before that, he hinted that the M3 Note will come with a slim body and a large battery. The phone will be quite beautiful as well. Finally, for processor, you can expect the octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 chipset under the hood.
As mentioned above, we had seen a leaked questionaire related to the Meizu M3 Note, which revealed some of the specs of the device. According to that leak, the Meizu M3 Note will come with a 5-inch or larger display (should be 5.5-inch) with 1080p resolution and a large 3500mAh battery inside. Also, the phone will retain the traditional mBack Physical home button up front, most likely integrated with a fingerprint sensor.
Considering the specs of the device, we can say that the phone will be directly targeted at competitors like Xiaomi Mi 4C and Mi 4S. As for the pricing, Meizu has been agressive in this area, so we can expect it to be below 1000 Yuan (around $154).
