The successor to Meizu’s entry-level m2 smartphone is here. The new handset, Meizu m3, comes with some minor upgrades but it’ll be available for the price at which its predecessor was being sold – $92.
Let’s have a look at what the smartphone is hiding under its hood. Meizu m3 will be powered by a MediaTek MT6750 chipset which comes with an octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU. Four of its cores are clocked at 1.5 GHz whereas the other four are running at 1.0 GHz. Owing to the new chipset, m3 comes with a support for LTE over a number of bands. This feature is more commonly known as Full netcom support in China. In other words, the handset will come standard with Bluetooth, GPS and Wi-Fi a/b/g/n connectivity. Note that the m2 was powered with the MediaTek MT6735 chipset. Apart from the chipset, Meizu M3 will be offered in two different RAM/ROM variants – 2GB/16GB and 3GB/32GB. Nevertheless, both versions will feature a microSD slot to expand the internal storage capacity. As far as the camera department of the smartphone is concerned, it has a 13 megapixel rear shooter with an f/2.2 aperture and phase detection autofocus. In addition to that, we have a 5 megapixel selfie shooter with an f/2.0 aperture.
The Meizu m3’s body is made of a polycarbonate material with a measurement of 141.5 x 69.5 x 8.3mm. This makes it a bit wider and thinner than its predecessor. More importantly, the smartphone features a 5-inch 720p display with 2.5D glass protection. Last but not the least, a 2,870 mAh battery will act as a power source for the new handset.
Now lets talk about the price tags, the version with 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM will cost you CNY 599 whereas the higher powered, 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM, version will set you back precisely CNY 799. Note that the m3 comes in a variety of new colors to choose from. To know about the availability, stay tuned to Techbeasts.
