Earlier today Meizu unveiled their new Metal smartphone that features a unibody design that incorporates the company’s customized special aluminum material called “Crystal Metal” as well as a variety of rare earths, cobalt, titanium, and other rare metals, which combine to make the Metal’s body light and durable. Now we get to take a look at the new Meizu Metal as unboxing pictures of the device have been published online.
The packaging of the Meizu Metal is pretty simple. Composed of a plain white box which houses the device and a few of its accessories including a SIM card tray pin and USB cable, among others. The Metal unit in the unboxing pictures is also white although the new device does come in a variety of other colors including gray, gold, blue, and pink.
The design of the Metal is pretty simple and straightforward and is reminiscent of Meizu’s other devices including the M2 Note. It looks like the company focused more on the quality of the device’s body with its unique metal composition rather than coming up with a new or unique design. The front of the device features its 5.5-inch full HD 1080p display which is covered with a panel of 2.5D arc curved glass.
The rest of the Metal’s features include mTouch 2.1 fingerprint recognition on the home button, dual SIM dual standby support, 4G LTE connectivity, a MediaTek Helio X10 MT6795 octa-core processor, 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM, 16 or 32GB of internal storage, a 3140mAh battery, a 13-megapixel f/2.2 with phase detection auto-focus and dual LED flash, and a 5-megapixel f/2.0 front-facing camera.
The Meizu Metal is priced at 1099 Yuan for the 16GB variant while the 32GB variant costs 1299 Yuan, both of which are very competitive price tags for a device with this design and features.
