Meizu m3 note goes official with aluminum unibody, fingerprint sensor

Victor, 06 April, 2016

Meizu held an unveiling event today in Beijing andfinally made the eagerly-anticipated m3 note official. The Chinese manufacturer's "m" lineup has a very distinct reputation for delivering quality budget-friendly offers, like the m1 note and its m2 note successor, both of which delivered outstanding value for money.

In a first for the "m" line, the new offer features an 6000 series aluminum unibody. On the hardware side of things, the phone comes with a 5.5-inch, FullHD display, rather typical for the family with a 2.5D front glass. The front comes in black and white colors combined with a dark gray and gold finish on the back, respectively.

Under the hood is a MediaTek Helio P10 SoC, with octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU clocked at 1.8Ghz, a Mali T860 GPU. Memory options include 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage in the lower tier, as well as 3GB of RAM and a 32GB fast eMMC 5.1 solid state chip. The camera setup seems to be borrowed from previous models, at least on paper, and includes a 13MP rear shooter and a 5MP one on the front.

The Meizu me note offers Dual SIM support with a hybrid card tray solution (that is two SIM cards or a SIM plus microSD combo). The Meizu m3 note is also "full netcom", which means it will work on every network in China. LTE is also a given and so is VoLTE. To top things off, the device has a spacious 4000 mAh battery and an mTouch 2.1 fingerprint reader in the home button - also a novelty for the "m" lineup.

But perhaps the most attractive aspect of the m3 note is its price point, starting at CNY 799 ($125) for the 2GB version and CNY 999 ($155) for the 3GB. This actually leaves in about $100 cheaper than the Meizu metal at current prices. The me note will be available in China from April 11.

M3 note will come to Myanmar?When?

Looks like they went out of their way to copy the iPhone's design to me. The only thing that makes it resemble the HTC 10 is the placement of the camera sensor.
