Meizu has officially announced the M1 Note from the much-rumored Blue Charm series.
The official specs have been presented at an event in China, leading with the MediaTek SoC that will be powering the M1 Note. Going for the 64-bit architecture, Meizu has chosen to use an MT6752 chipset for this phone. This means 8 cores, clocked at 1.7GHz and carrying along a Mali T760 GPU.
…2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage for a low version and 32GB for a higher end version
The memory spec set for the M1 promises 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage for a low version and 32GB for a higher end version. It will be loaded with Meizu’s trademark Flyme OS v4.1.
The primary rear camera is specced at 13MP resolution, with the secondary at 5MP. The phone will be featuring a 5.5 inch 1080p display, which might prove to be a largish power sink. This power-hungry display might subdue the 3140mAH battery capacity and render it as just average.
The released images show a dual SIM tray on the side of the phone. This would confirm that the back cover is fixed, after which follows that the battery is non-removable.
The M1 will be offered in a variety of incredibly bright pastel colors. To some, this may, in fact, be a deal breaker, but at least Meizu has made a basic white option available.
The 16GB version will cost around $160, while the 32GB version will cost around $193. For a 64-bit octa core phone with 32GB of storage, this price tag is quite attractive.
The Android world is still waiting on the announcement of the second mobile device in this series.
