Meizu has wrapped up the company’s press conference in Beijing quite recently, and the company has announced the much-rumored M2 Note handset. This is a worthy successor to the M1 Note mid-ranger which was announced at the end of 2014. The device has lots to offers, is available in a range of color options and it’s really affordable. We’ve already covered the main announcement of this handset, and are here to take a closer look at its specifications.
The Meizu M2 Note sports a 5.5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) IGZO (Sharp) fully laminated display along with 2GB of LPDDR3 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 clocked at 1.3GHz which ships with a Mali T720 MP3 GPU running at 450MHz. The 13-megapixel camera is located on the back of this device, and it has a Blue glass IR filter on top of it. The camera sports a 5-element lens (5P) and f/2.2 aperture, while a dual-LED, dual tone flash is located below it. The 5-megapixel shooter (OmniVision’s sensor, OV5670) is located on the front side of the device (f/2.0 aperture, 69-degree wide-angle lens).
This is a dual-SIM handset, and it offers 4G LTE connectivity. Speaking of connectivity, the phone has support for FDD-LTE, TD-LTE, TD-SCDMA, WCDMA and GSM networks. The 3,100mAh battery is also a part of this package, and Android 5.0 Lollipop comes pre-installed on this handset along with Meizu’s Flyme UI 4.5 on top of it. The Meizu M2 Note measures 150.9 x 75.2 x 8.7mm, while it weighs 149 grams.
