We have been hearing and also seeing a lot of Meizu Metal in the past couple of weeks. The phone is all set to debut tomorrow, i.e. October 21 and will run on Alibaba’s Ali YunOS based on Android platform. The phone is said to be quite a looker, thanks to its all metal design (with magnesium alloy body) and metallic color scheme. The specs are also quite impressive for the price segment that it is targeted.
The latest leak about the Meizu Metal smartphone has revealed the pricing of the device. While previous rumors said that the phone could be priced below 1000 Yuan ($157), a leaked image reveals that the pricing could be set at 1299 Yuan for the 16GB model. That comes to around $200, which is quite aggressive.
While the company is yet to confirm the official price tag of the device, Meizu VP, Li Nan had earlier hinted that the pricing would be between 1000 Yuan and 1500 Yuan. So, its quite likely that the starting price of the 16GB model could be 1299 Yuan. Moreover, the specifications are also quite impressive to make sure that the phone gives tough competition to the likes of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2.
According to the TENAA listing, the Meizu Metal smartphone will come with a 2GHz octa-core chip, the MT6795 Helio X10. There will be 2GB of RAM on board along with 16GB of storage. The front features a 2.5D glass 5.5-inch FHD display with a 5MP camera on top. As for the back, you can expect a 13MP shooter with PDAF. Like the recent Meizu smartphones, the Meizu Metal too is expected to come with the mBack home button with different gestures available along with fingerprint sensor incorporated into the device. Finally, the phone will run on Ali YunOS instead of Meizu’s Flyme UI.
Overall, the device does capture our attention with good specs and a refreshing metal design. Moreover, the phone will come in six different color options like blue, grey, white, pink and gold. Now, we just have to wait for its official release on October 21.
