The recently released Meizu m2 is looking to be an impressive smartphone with features and specifications that trump its rivals at the same price point in the budget smartphone segment. Today, hands-on photos of the m2 have been published alongside samples from the new device’s camera.
Essentially being the smaller version of the m2 Note, the m2 keeps the same design as its bigger brother with its rounded corners, rear plastic shell, and its oblong-shaped home key. Even the position of the rear camera and flash is similar to the m2 Note. Comparatively, the m2 measures only 140.1 x 68.9 x 8.7mm while its big brother, the m2 Note, measures 150.9 x 75.2 x 8.7mm. Additionally, while the unit in the hands-on pictures is grey the m2 is also available in three other colors including white, blue, and pink.
The m2 features a 5.0-inch 720p display, larger than some of its competitors, protected by AGC Dragontrail glass, a MediaTek MT6735 1.3GHz quad-core processor, a Mali T720 GPU, 2GB of RAM (which is double than some of its rivals), 16GB of internal storage, support for expandable storage via microSD card up to 128GB, and a 2500mAh battery. It’s also equipped with a 13-megapixel f/2.2 aperture 5-element lens rear camera as well as a 5-megapixel f/2.0 aperture 4-element lens front-facing camera.
Looking at the sample photos, the m2’s rear camera is pretty impressive considering that the device only costs $96. Meizu has really set itself up to become one of China’s biggest manufacturers if its keeps releasing really competitive devices like the m2.
