4000 units of the Meizu m1 note sell in India over nearly four hours
Chinese smartphone manufacturer Meizu held its first sale in India today as it offered the Meizu m1 note. Instead of using the flash sales technique favored by some manufacturers like Xiaomi, Meizu employed an open sales platform with a three-hour cap. Later, the manufacturer announced via a tweet that it sold out all 4000 units it was offering in 3 hours and 55 minutes.

The Meizu m1 note was priced at the equivalent of $188 USD. The handset comes with a 5.5-inch screen protected by Gorilla Glass 3, carrying a 1080 x 1920 resolution. Under the hood is the MediaTek MT6752 SoC which features an octa-core 1.7GHz CPU and a Mali-T760 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside with 16GB/32GB of non-expandable storage. The phone comes with a rear-facing 13MP camera and a 5MP front-facing camera is available for selfies and video chats. A 3140mAh battery keeps the lights on.

The Meizu m1 note offers dual SIM capabilities, support for 4G LTE, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. Android 4.4.4 is pre-installed. Meizu took in $752,000 during the four hours and we imagine that it will return to the country with more units of the m1 note soon.

Price is too much for a new brand... i thought they will keep 32gb version at 10-11k but 12000 for 16gb version that to without sdcard is big mistake from meizu .....it lost in the starting itself .who will buy a new brand for 12000 without proper aftersales service...go home meizu

Gsmarena says one can use the 2nd sim slot as microsd slot and users have confirmed it works. So, the memory can be expanded.

LOL....Meizu really did a good one here in the m1 note......but comparing anything about it to the Samsung Galaxy s6 or s6Edge is like you pitching a beautiful but low cost 2014 Alfa Romero 4c with a ground breaking high luxury definitions ,The Ferrari LaFerrari, Bugatti Veyron or Lamborghini Aventardo. So in a nutshell,Meizu has really done well and spec'd up so decently a device less that $200...but don't push it pls,make not mistake about it being on par with anything Galaxy s6 or s6Edge.... Rather,Meizu announcing the m1 note in January has done well to make other manufacturers to step up their game in low cost smartphone productions....so yes,it fairs very well,when paired with the likes of Lenovo k3 note,Asus Zenfone2 and Huawei Honor 4X...yet some might still wanna pich the Lenovo or Asus Zenfone2 over it,cause they've got an expandable memory card feature and removable battery,something that eludes the Meizu m1 note. Conclusion,its a very nice device especially one that gives you value for your money......but pls never mention it in the same breath with the Galaxy s6 or 6sEdge

It took 4 hours to sell 4000 units? 1000 units an hour doesn't sound all that impressive to me.

Well, they created the hype on social media a good 2-3 months ago, but didn't released it on time and getting late so frustrated customers diverted towards other phones from Xiaomi and many more from India. BTW, this is an awesome device for its price but 16GB internal without expandable storage is a con for me and no availability of 32GB has the problem with it. And also people in India prefers maximum storage with microSD cards. I'm waiting for the 32GB option. I think they are also announcing m2 note on June 2nd probably so confused to buy this or wait for the second one as the availability would be again late in India. Let's see, I'll wait till 2nd June.
