Meizu, the Chinese manufacturer, which already has a presence in India but has not been active in the country, is reportedly planning to launch its budget smartphone Meizu M6T in India. The smartphone was originally launched in May in China.
According to the report, the Meizu M6T could soon launch in India and the China-based company is in talks with Flipkart for selling the device in India. The report adds that initially the phone will be exclusively available through Flipkart but later it could be available with an offer from Reliance Jio.
The Meizu M6T features a 5.7-inch HD+ display with screen resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels. Under the hood, the smartphone is powered by MediaTek MT6750 octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz along with Mali T860 GPU.
The phone comes with two memory configuration — 3GB RAM with 32GB internal storage and 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. There’s also a microSD card slot that enables users to further expand the phone’s storage up to 128GB.
On the camera front, the smartphone sports a dual rear camera comprising a 13-megapixel primary sensor with f/2.2 aperture, LED flash, and Sony IMX278 and a 2-megapixel secondary camera with f/2.4 aperture. On the front side, it has an 8-megapixel camera for selfies and video calling, with f/2.0 aperture.
Connectivity options on the device include 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 4.1, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, GPS/AGPS and a micro USB port. It also has a fingerprint sensor on the back panel. The smartphone runs on Android 7.0 Nougat operating system out of the box with Flyme OS 6.2 on top and is backed up by a 3,300mAh non-removable battery.
In China, the 3GB RAM model is priced at 799 Yuan (approx. $122) while the 4GB RAM costs 1,099 Yuan (approximately $168). We are expecting similar pricing for the smartphone in the Indian market as well. Going by the specifications, we expect the smartphone to fall under the budget segment and will compete against the likes of Xiaomi Redmi 5, Oppo’s Realme 1, among others.
