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.

So, do you like the new Meizu metal? Would you pick this over the Redmi Note 2. You can also check out the leaked video of the device in action alongside the Honor 7.

    Taught to compete with Xiaomi when Redmi Note 2 is 799 yuan in China.
    1000 yuan for Meizu Metal would be a good price, but higher than that….

      There are a few reasons why people would go for the Meizu Metal

      1. Fingerprint Sensor
      2. Metal body
      3. Looks

      But you do have a point, we will have to see whether they are willing to shell out about 1299 Yuan for these upgrades. I hope Meizu throws in some more features to justify its higher price tag.

    Metal body is a plus

    If this meizu have gorilla glass than it is a good selling point compare to Redmi Note 2.

    Also meizu must really consider their International buyer (both stock availability and selling price). So far Xiaomi is still not keen on supporting their international buyer by limiting their online selling specially for china people buyers.

    So far only India got their full attention but they also cannot sell Redmi note 2 there because of the fuckin’ Ericsson sue over mediatek license bla bla bla. So Fuck you Ericksson !!!

    I stay in Singapore and until today there is no Redmi note 2 on their Xiaomi SG web online shop. If possible i don’t want to buy online from external party reseller because of the risks that china shop send the faulty item, etc.etc.

    Pure clean Android OS is the best without those bloated Chinese crapware. YunOS is one of crapware chinese android OS i believe.
