Meizu has been all over the news as of late, after months of silence. This China-based company has received a couple of significant investments by other Asian companies, the most notable ones came from Alibaba and MediaTek. Meizu has big plans for this year, the company intends to keep growing and grabbing marketshare in China, not to mention that they expanded their business to India quite recently, which will help them grow as well. That being said, the company has announced that they’ll hold an event in Beijing on June 2nd, and even though they haven’t exactly confirmed that the M1 Note’s successor will be coming, that is somewhat obvious at the moment.
The company’s VP, Li Nan, has confirmed that the upcoming device will be a part of the ‘Note’ family and sport a physical home button, though a fingerprint scanner won’t be included. We’ve already seen a number of renders showing off the alleged M2 Note handset sporting that physical home button, not to mention it looks really similar to its predecessor. As we’re waiting for more news from the company, two variants of a new Meizu handset got certified in China, the M575M and M575U. The M575M supports GSM / TD-SCDMA / TD-LTE networks, while the M575U comes with support for GSM / WCDMA / TD-LTE / LTE-FDD networks. These two models are obviously going to launch for China Mobile and China Unicom networks in China, but what device are we talking about here, is this the M2 Note? Well, it quite probably is, yes. Meizu is holding their press event in less than two weeks and the company quite probably won’t release two devices, and the launch of the M1 Note’s successor is more than expected at the moment.
We don’t have that much info when it comes to this device just yet, but according to some rumors and leaks, the handset might be powered by MediaTek’s MT6753 64-bit octa-core SoC, sport 2GB of RAM and run Android 5.1 Lollipop. Meizu’s very own Flyme OS will be installed on top of Google’s Android operating system, of course, and you can also expect the phone to look very similar to its predecessor. The plastic back which wraps around the sides of the device will quite probably make a comeback as well.
