One of our favourite Chinese smartphone makers just announced a new device in China today. At a funky event in Beijing, Meizu presented the Meizu M3E to the world and we are looking at another super midranger.
The M3E spec sheet is strikingly similar to the M3 Note, with a 5.5″ Full HD IPS LCD panel covered in 2.5D glass, MEdiatek Helio P10 spec sheet and the Meizu mback home button which has a fingerprint scanner built in. The device is made out of sandblasted premium metal.
Where the M3E differs from the M3 Note is in the battery and RAM department: the battery is a smaller 3000 mAh one but supports fast charging, and the M3E has 3GB RAM in the entry level SKU coupled with 32GB storage.
The camera department on the Meizu M3E is powered by a Sony IMX258 13MP sensor with f/2.o aperture. The selfie camera is a 5MP unit.
There is also a new colour option with the Meizu M3E, a glacier blue one. There are also deep gray sky, champagne attention, rose gold charm and bright moonlight silver as colour. (We love machine translated Chinese websites here at Coolsmartphone).
The Meizu M3E is up for pre-order now and the price looks like it is going to make it a popular device: 1299 RMB (approximately £159 or $195).
Want to know more about the Meizu M3E? I’ll be ordering one soon on AliExpress, so there will be a review in due time. Meanwhile, there is an upcoming review of the MEizu M3 Note, and we’ll be talking about Meizu in upcoming episodes of the Coolsmartphone Podcast. 2016 is definitely looking like a good year for the overall quality of midrange smartphones, and Meizu are pushing the market forward with some healthy competition in the marketplace. We are all winning here…
