Meizu M3 Note will be unveiled on April 6th in China
Meizu is a company that is big in China: it made huge strides in sales in the last two years in particular, and while its phones are available in a very limited amount in Europe (and are not officially sold in the United States), it makes some great phones sold at extremely affordable prices.

Now, one of its most popular affordable devices: the 5.5" Meizu m2 Note is about to get a successor: the Meizu m3 Note will be officially unveiled on April 6th, the same date as the Huawei P9.

Expectations are that it will build up on the successful foundation of the m2 Note with the same size, 5.5" display with a 1080 x 1920-pixel resolution, probably a fingerprint scanner, and the powerful MediaTek Helio P10 system chip. It should come in two storage sizes: 16GB and 32GB, and we expect both to come with the option for a microSD card for expandable storage.

Just recently, a leaked document out of China revealed the full plans for Meizu's new launches in 2016. Take a look right below.

The m3 Metal is pretty beast, just look at that price, budget phone of the year.

But you stuck with YUN OS, not Android.

Is that bad? It is after all based on android.

Not necessarily, but I prefer knowing my device runs Android and not some Alibaba unofficial forked Android. Whether the price justifies peace of mind is subjective.

I think helio x20 will be a flop.

The chart showing Meizu's plans for 2016 has to be taken with a grain of salt. There has been a lot of discussion lately that the Pro 6 will be getting a specially designed version of a Mediatek processor - the Helio X25. Also the Pro 5 had a 5.7 inch screen so I'm doubtful that the Pro 6 will have a 5.5 inch display as this chart suggests.

I tried the Meizu M2Nnote for a while, one of the best budget phones I ever owned. I loved the User Interface and the battery life was a full day and a half, sometimes almost 2 days. The only drawback was that the screen was a fingerprint magnet. If they improve the display, the M3 Note will be great. One unique feature of the M2 Note was that the power and volume buttons were on the left. It felt strange at first but most right handed people pick up phones in their left hands so it made a lot of sense to have the buttons on the left side.
