Yesterday was a great day for Meizu, the company has launched yet another great handset and the reactions were more than positive. This Chinese smartphone manufacturer has released their M1 Note handset (Blue Note for those who live in China) and basically shocked everyone. This handset offers some extremely appealing specifications and doesn’t cost nearly as much as it would if some other OEM made it, we’ll talk more about the specs of this thing a little bit later.
Chinese portal IT168 already managed to dismantle this phone and expose everything that lays on the inside. If you’re interested to see how that went, visit the gallery down below where you’ll find a ton of teardown images you can take a look at. The portal did not find anything out of the ordinary here, the phone is assembled quite nicely and every listed spec by Meizu is present and accounted for. Talking about specs, this handset features a 5.5-inch Full HD 1080p (1920 x 1080) display along with 2GB of RAM and either 16 or 32GB of non-expandable internal storage. MediaTek’s 64-bit MT6752 octa-core processor is powering on this handset while Mali-T760 MP2 GPU is there for graphics rendering. If you take a look at the back of this handset, you’ll notice a 13-megapixel main camera and an LED flash next to it, while there’s a 5-megapixel snapper on the front of the device. 3410 mAh battery ships with this device and it should provide more than enough battery life. Android 4.4 KitKat comes pre-installed on this device and Meizu’s Flyme OS is placed on top of Google’s OS. Meizu M1 Note comes in Blue, Yellow, Green, Pink and White color options, so there’s a color for everyone I believe, as long as you like the glossy, or are willing to throw a case over it.

The device is already available for pre-order in China via Meizu or Jingdong Mall, and will be available for purchase starting December 30th. The 16GB version of this device costs 999 Yuan ($160) in China, while the 32GB model is somewhat more expensive, it will cost you 1,199 Yuan ($193) should you decide to get a copy.
