Meizu’s CEO Says Meizu M3 Note Will Launch Soon

March 22, 2016 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

Meizu PRO 6 has been one of the most leaked devices in the last couple of weeks. Various rumors and leaks surfaced recently, and the device popped up on GFXBench, AnTuTu and Geekbench in the last 24 hours. That handset was expected to arrive in the third quarter of this year, but judging by the amount of benchmark listings and leaks we’ve seen, the PRO 6 might launch sooner than expected.

Now, I don’t know if you remember, but we’ve reported recently that Meizu plans to host two press events in April, we still don’t know what will they announced, but the PRO 6 is definitely a possibility at the moment. That being said, Meizu’s CEO, Huang Zhang, actually said something interesting recently as well. The company’s CEO actually mentioned the Meizu M3 Note for the first time, and has hinted that the device might launch soon as well. The Meizu M3 Note has surfaced a couple of times thus far as well, and the company’s CEO also hinted that the device might be fueled by MediaTek’s Helio P10 SoC, which seems to be quite popular at the moment.

Now, the Meizu M3 Note will be the company’s mid-range offering, and if the M1 Note and M2 Note are any indications, this will be one of Meizu’s best selling smartphones. The M2 Note shipped with the Helio X10 SoC, so it makes sense for Meizu to use the Helio P10 in the M3 Note, considering they’ll include the Helio X25 in the Meizu PRO 6, which was confirmed recently. The Meizu M3 Note will quite probably ship with a 5.5-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) display, along with 2GB or 3GB of RAM on the inside. The company will probably offer both 16GB and 32GB internal storage variants of this handset, and you can expect the device to sport Meizu’s ‘mBack’ physical home button below the display. This home button will double as a fingerprint scanner, as it did on previous Meizu-branded smartphones. Android 5.1 Lollipop will probably come out of the box with Meizu’s Flyme 5 OS on top of it, though it is possible Meizu plans to release this handset with Android Marshmallow out of the box, we’ll see.
