Meizu unveiled three new phones just last month. While the company is said to be working on a couple of high-end devices, a new report from China states that Meizu will release the metal version of its Meizu M3 budget smartphone on June 13. While the report didn’t reveal the exact name of the handset, it’s probably going to be called as the Meizu m3 Note, succeeding the Meizu M1 Metal that was announced back in October 2015.
It is said that there won’t be many differences between the regular Meizu M3 and the M3 Metal. But the new model is said to ditch the polycarbonate back in favor of metal. Another important change as revealed by the report is that the Meizu M3 Metal will come with Android on board, instead of YunOS running on the regular version. So, for those fans who were disappointed to hear the presence of YunOS on the budget model, this news should come as a relief.
Thanks to an earlier TENAA certification, we know that the specs are going to be similar to the earlier released model. So, you can expect the phone to feature the octa-core MT6750 chip clocked at 1.5GHz, 2GB + 16GB and 3G + 32GB options, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, 5-inch 720p display and a 3000mAh battery on board. Like mentioned above, the phone will be running on Android 5.1 instead of YunOS.

Coincidentally, Meizu is also rumored to release the Meizu MX6 flagship on June 20. That would be just a week away from this launch. Usually, we would have dismissed this info saying that the two launches are very close together, but after seeing what Meizu did in April, we won’t be surprised if we see two launches in consecutive weeks.
