Meizu M3 Note Announced: Aluminum Body, Fingerprint Sensor in tow
Meizu’s newest mid-range smartphone is now finally live and it’s got some impressive specifications for its market.
The Meizu M3 Note features a 6000 series aluminum unibody similar to the like of the iPhone 6. It’s got a 5.5-inch Full HD display topped with a 2.5 front glass. It’s powered by a MediaTek Helio P10 octa-core chipset running at 1.8GHz and paired with a Mali-T860 GPU. For the memory, it’s either a 2GB RAM plus 16GB internal storage or a better 3GB plus a faster 32GB eMMC. The camera department is inherited from its predecessor at 13MP and 5MP.
Like most smartphones today, the SIM tray is a hybrid solution of either a Dual SIM use or a microSD combo. Also, there’s a fingerprint scanner labelled as the mTouch 2.1. Everything is getting their juice from the spacious 4000mAh battery.
