Meizu just keeps on launching compelling devices. This China-based smartphone OEM has released a number of really solid offerings last year, and has continued doing so in 2015 as well. Back in January, the company has announced the mid-range Meizu M1 handset, and a couple of weeks ago, they announced the M1 Note’s successor, the M2 Note. The M1 Note launched at the end of last year, and its successor is even more affordable. The two devices resemble quite a lot actually, but unlike the M1 Note, the M2 Note features a physical home button below the display.
The company has launched the M2 Note in China, and the phone is currently only available in China, well, at least officially. The China-based re-sellers, GearBest and PandaWill, have listed the Meizu M2 Note for pre-order on their webpages. These two companies actually ships devices all over the world, so in case you’d like to get your hands on the Meizu M2 Note (if you live outside of China), this is one of the few ways you can do that. The 16GB variant of the M2 Note is currently listed and available for pre-order, and in case you’re interested, you’ll have to splash out $173. This is not that expensive at all, but around $40 more expensive than in China. Anyhow, if you’d like to get it, visit GearBest‘s or PandaWill‘s listing.
The Meizu M2 Note features a 5.5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) IGZO display along with 2GB of RAM and 16 or 32GB of internal storage (expandable up to 128GB). This handset is powered by MediaTek’s MT6753 64-bit octa-core processor running at 1.3GHz which ships with a Mali T-720 GPU. The 13-megapixel shooter (+dual LED, dual tone flash) is available on the back of the M2 Note, and a 5-megapixel camera is located on the front side of this device. This is a Dual-SIM handset which offers 4G LTE connectivity (FDD-LTE, TD-LTE, TD-SCDMA), and a 3,100mAh battery is also a part of the package. The M2 Note comes in various color options, but only the Gray variant is available for pre-order outside of China at the moment.
