Meizu’s Blue Charm Note handset has been leaking like crazy over the last couple of weeks. The company has finally announced this handset yesterday and its name is different than expected. Meizu decided to call this device the Blue Note in China and M1 Note internationally, we’ll use the latter naming, of course. This handset is an extremely affordable piece of technology and offers great specifications of the price, I’d even go as far as saying this is the best budget smartphone under $200 you can buy at the moment and it will probably stay that was for a while.
