Meizu, much like Xiaomi, had an extremely successful year. This China-based smartphone manufacturer launched not one, but two flagship handsets this year (MX4 and MX4 Pro), and to top it all off, they launched the M1 Note handset about a week ago. The M1 Note is something between a mid and high-end device, I really don’t know how to classify this handset. It offers a lot in terms of specs and the main factor which attracted people to this device is its price, despite the fact it offers truly solid spec sheet, this device costs only 999 Yuan (16GB version) in China, which is about $161.
That being said, Meizu M1 Note went on sale earlier today, as we announced it will back when it was launched, but the handset was sold out almost immediately. The M1 Note was pre-ordered over 4 million times via Jingdong Mall alone, which is truly commendable for Meizu, especially if we consider the pre-orders were open for only about a week. Meizu M1 Note features a 5.5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display along with 2GB of RAM for all your multitasking needs and 16 or 32GB of non-expandable internal storage. MediaTek’s MT6752 SoC, a 64-bit octa-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz is powering on this handset along with Mali-T760 GPU for graphics processing. 13 and 5-megapixel cameras are available on this device on the back and front side of the phone, respectively. Android 4.4 KitKat ships with this device with Meizu’s very own Flyme 4 OS on top of it. 3,410mAh battery comes with the device and this handset offers dual-SIM, dual standby option for those of you who like to use two SIM cards in your devices. 4G LTE and dual-band Wi-Fi connectivity are also available in this handset for fast internet connectivity.
Meizu M1 Note is available in Yellow, Blue, White, Green and Pink color options, the 16GB version of the device costs 999 Yuan ($161), as I already mentioned, while the 32GB model will set you back 1,199 Yuan ($193) if you manage to find one to purchase. The device is currently sold out, but will be available again on January 5th according to Jingdong Mall, so keep your eyes opened if you live in China and are interested in purchasing this thing. Let us know if you managed to get a copy for yourself and what you think of the device in general.
