Super Cheap Meizu M3 Note Official With Helio P10 & a large 4100mAh battery

by Joe 30

Meizu has officially announced the Meizu M3 Note mid-ranger today at an event in Beijing, China. The phone is everything we expected it to be, and even better, thanks to a larger than expected battery on board. Before we move on to the specs of the device, which are quite impressive, let’s take a look at the pricing. Meizu has surprised us all by pricing the Meizu M3 Note at just 799 Yuan ($123) for the base variant (2GB RAM + 16GB ROM) and 999 Yuan ($154) for the higher-end model (3GB RAM + 32GB).

Now, let’s take a look at the features of the M3 Note.

First of all, Meizu had abandoned the traditional polycarbonate body on the Blue Charm series in favor of metal on the new M3 Note. This makes the phone look much more premium and good looking than its predecessors. Coming to the specs, the Meizu M3 Note features a 5.5-inch 1080p LTPS display up front, same as the previous versions. There will be two variants, one with 2GB RAM + 16GB storage and another with 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM. The company reveals that these are eMMC 5.1 storages which is a lot faster than previous versions.

Under the hood, the phone features the Helio P10 octa-core chipset, which is slightly under clocked as compared to the OPPO R9. So, it’s clocked at 1.8GHz instead fo 2GHz. There will be Mali-T760 GPU on board. At the back, the M3 Note comes with a 13MP camera sensor with f/2.2 aperture, PDAF and 5 element lens. Up front, there is a 5MP f/2.0 shooter. Like other Meizu phones, this particular device will feature dual SIM cards, but SIM2 slot is hybrid which means you can use it for MicroSD cards as well. As for the software, the phone runs on Android 5.1 out of the box with Flyme UI on top. The company reportedly has worked with Mediatek to make the UI on the phone smoother.

Continuing its tradition of using mBack buttons, Meizu has upgraded the home button up front with mTouch 2.1 fingerprint sensor which can unlock the phone in just 0.48 seconds. During the launch, the company mocked OPPO of using the same oval button design as Meizu. But OPPO’s fingerprint sensor is faster (unlocks in 0.2 seconds). The M3 Note measures 8.2mm in thickness and inside this body, the company has managed to pack in a large 4100mAh battery. The company claims that this battery is good enough for 17 hours of video playback and 32 hours of talktime. Also, the phone weighs 163 grams and supports VoLTE.

Meizu is yet to reveal international release plans for the Meizu M3 Note.

Apart from the new smartphone, the company also unveiled a new Bong 2P fitness tracker that retails for 79 Yuan ($13) independently and 60 Yuan ($10) as a bundled option with the M3 Note. The fitness tracker boasts of a 40-day battery life, which is impressive.

Then there’s the EP51 Bluetooth headphones that boast of 6 hours of battery life, omni directional microphone, nano waterproof material and super light weight body. The headphones will retail for 269 Yuan ($41) independently or at 199 Yuan ($31) with the M3 Note.

    This will be a bestseller!
    I wish they had them in 5-in too. I mean same model in 5-in size, not cheaper eqivalent like M2 to M2 Note.

  • tiktaktik

    Helio P10 performance is poor compared to snap 650… This year doesn’t seem a good one for mediatek. Coz in higher end snap 820 kills x20, medium range-snap 652 kills p10

    • Muhammad Yasir

      this is sad !

    • Yussuf Sulaimanov

      Are you kidding? Just compare prices of smartphones with SD652 with Meizu M3 note*s Helio p10. Meizu m3 note is 3 or even 4 times cheaper, but it delivers pretty nice performance.

    They really named it the Bong? When I think of Bong, fitness is not the first thing that comes to mind….

      the 32gb version is $199 on meizuworld and they ship worldwide

    • Semi

      it’s not a top phone, it’s a mid-ranger. Don’t expect impressive cameras.

      • Muhammad Yasir

        :/

      • Mr.Flying Zoom3rz

        I won’t. Who with his mind would expect an impressive cam on phone cheaper than 200 bucks??

    • Mario Escobar

      • Mario Escobar

        I Hope Not, well we can buy it in Flash sales ha ha ha

  • Mr.Flying Zoom3rz

    With that phenomenal affordable price Meizu M3 Note will win the 2016’s awards for the phone with best performance/price/quality ratio. Just like what K3 Note was last year.

  • Steven Fox

    Just don`t expect a great camera at that price and this is the lower clocked P10(CPU max 1.8Ghz and GPU is clocked 50-100Mhz lower)

  • Ionut Johnny

    I love the phone looks and specs, sadly is 199 $ as redmi note 3 pro, which I already have is possession, the only pro is that that price is for 3 GB ram + 32 rom, I need to see reviews very fast 😀
