The name Meizu may not ring a bell, which is not so surprising, considering then fact that the company has only been on the Android market for a little time compared to the big players. However, Meizu’s market age is in no way evident in the quality of devices the Chinese makers produce. The smartphone maker has released devices that have put the premium priced smartphones of the industry leaders in a tight corner; as they have to go the distance in justifying the high price tag. Meizu has alreade released their flagship of the year the Meizu Pro 6, a DECA core smartphone and a flagship by all standards. This time Chinese smartphone maker has released the another device, Meizu M3, targeted at the low-end users. The Meizu M3 is the successor to last years M2. This new device betters it predecessor in hardware quality only, as they both carry the same price tag.
That said let us take a look at the M3 specs, shall we?
Meizu M3 sports a polycarbonate body that carries a 5-inch screen with a 720p resolution and equipped with 2.5d curved glass. Under the devices shell, you will find an octacore MT6750 chipset, a Mali-T860MP2 GPU, 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM or 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM; depending in the variant you purchase. Powering the device is a 2,870mAh battery, and the device runs Meizu’s Flyme OS layered on Android 5.1 Lollipop.
For connectivity, Meizu M3 sports a dual SIM slot and support dual standby. The SIM slot is hybrid, in that you replace one of the SIM cards with a memory card. The M3 also comes with LTE support as well as WiFi, bluetooth, and microusb v2.0.
For picture and video taking, M3 carries a 12MP camera on its back and a 8MP camera on its front.
Meizu M3’s specs firmly places it in the low-end category of devices and it can be described as a high low-end smartphone. Meizu M3 will wear several colours including; pink, blue, white, grey and gold. The price tag of the device is very enticing at $92 for the 2RAM variant and $123 form the 3GB RAM variant. As for availability, it is still unknown if web will be seeing the device outside China; I hope we do as it will make things interesting at this end.
