Meizu is a very interesting company, and one of the fastest growing Chinese smartphone OEMs at the moment. This China-based company has released two really compelling devices in the last two months, the M2 Note and MX5. The M2 Note is M1 Note's successor, and it offers really solid specifications at more than an affordable price point. This handset is a mid-range offering by the company, while the MX5 is a completely different story. The Meizu MX5 is the company's new flagship, and a really compelling device at that. This thing sports high-end specs, a metal build, a Super AMOLED display and lots more. If you'd like to know more, click here.
That being said, the next device this China-based OEM will release will be the Meizu M2. The Meizu M1 was announced back in January, and it is effectively a smaller and lower-end variant of the M1 Note. The Meizu M2 is expected to be a very affordable mid-range handset, and our sources told us that it will launch this month back when the MX5 was launched. Well, it seems that the provided info was spot on because the device was certified in China recently. The Meizu M578M, M578U and M578C variants popped up on TENAA (China's equivalent to the FCC), which basically means the announcement is near. These three M2 variants will quite probably sport the same specs, aside from network bands support.
Taking a look at the provided images, you'll notice that the M2 actually looks identical to the M2 Note, but will be smaller, of course. The phone will quite probably feature a 5-inch 720p (1280 x 720) display along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. MediaTek's MT6735 64-bit octa-core SoC running at 1.3GHz will probably fuel this handset, and you can expect it to ship with Android 5.0 Lollipop pre-installed with Meizu's Flyme OS on top of Google's operating system. The handset will offer 4G LTE connectivity, and the device might cost 599 or 699 Yuan once released. Either way, the Meizu M2 will launch before the end of this month, so stay tuned for more info.
