The Meizu M3 Max launched earlier today and although it doesn’t come with some of the specs leaked in previous weeks such as a Helio P20 processor and a stylus, it still has some impressive features.
The all metal M3 Max features a 6” FHD display, 3GB of RAM, 64GB of ROM, and has a 1.8 GHz Helio P10 under the hood. Its rear camera is a 13MP Sony IMX258 with PDAF and dual LED flash. For video calls and selfies, you get a 5MP sensor.
With a thickness of just 7.9 mm, Meizu has been able to fit in a 4100mAh battery which should get you over 9 hours of on-screen time based on the teaser from yesterday. They’ve also thrown in fast charge, VoLTE, an IR blaster, and a fingerprint sensor all for a price of 1699 Yuan ($255).
The M3 Max comes in a white pack that slides out to reveal a blue box with the name of the phone engraved in silver. The packaging looks really nice and is sure to catch the eyes of lots of folks.
Flip open the top of the box like a book and you are greeted by the large display staring at you. The unit above is the champagne gold variant with white front bezels.
The M3 Max has it’s power button and volume rocker on the right which is the design employed by most manufacturers these days. However, the button placements seems to be too far up, so unless you have large hands/long fingers, reaching for those buttons will be a bit frustrating.
The other items in the box include some paper work, the 24W fast charger, a USB Type-C cord, and a SIM ejection tool. There are no earbuds or additional accessories like a silicone case, but you might be lucky to find a re-seller that will throw in the latter as a free gift.
The Meizu M3 Max is also available in gray (which looks more like blue in the picture above and comes with black front bexels), silver, and rose gold.
