Meizu has launched the successor of its 2014 flagship smartphone in China, the M2 Note. The phone was announced on Tuesday and it will be available in China starting from today while availability outside the firm homeland is not known. The Meizu M2 Note comes in two storage variants, 16GB version and 32GB version, priced at CN¥ 799 ($129 USD) and CN¥ 999 ($161 USD) respectively.
The smartphone sports identical specifications with its predecessor the M1 Note and they both look alike on the surface. The only difference is the Meizu M2 Note runs Android 5.0 Lollipop based Flyme OS out-of-the-box while the Meizu M1 Note runs Android 4.4 KitKat (upgradeable to Lollipop).
It comes with a hybrid SIM card (Nano) slots that enable users to use second SIM slot for external storage (MicroSD card). This means you’ll either use both slots to use dual-SIM functionality but without MicroSD or use one SIM slot and use the other for external storage.
Specwise, the Meizu M2 Note features a 5.5-inch IPS display with a full-HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. It is powered by a 64-bit octa-core MediaTek MT6753 processor with a clock speed of 1.3GHz slammed with 2GB of RAM and Mali-T720 MP2 GPU.
At the rear, the Meizu M2 Note packs a 13-megapixel camera with autofocus, f/2.2 aperture and LED flash while it is equipped with a 5-megapixel selfie-enabled secondary camera at the front with OmniVision 5670 sensor.
Connectivity options included are Wifi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, 4G LTE, 3G (HSPA+), GPRS/EDGE, and GPS/A-GPS. It is backed by a 3100mAh battery.
The Meizu M2 Note will be available in four different colors White, Pink, Blue, and Grey.
