Churning them out: Meizu uses Nokia E71 to tease yet another device to be released in 2 weeks
But holding it will not. Just after unveiling the two brand new handsets, Meizu has now teased yet another device — a Meizu Max. So far nothing much is known about the device, aside from the fact that the press invitations for the launch event have been sent with a Nokia E71 in the box. What?
This is not the first time Meizu has used old Nokia smartphones to hype up its midrangers. Back in 2015, it sent out Nokia 1110 units, as if to imply that the then upcoming M2 smartphone will be a reliable, indestructible, classic. Of course, the good old Nokia E71 was loved back in the day for its large keyboard and display, providing great productivity for what it was. So, apparently, Meizu wants to send a message that the Max would be a no-compromise productivity machine... we guess.
It is speculated that the phone would be part of the Blue Charm series, which means a midranger with a mindbogglingly low price-tag. Well, if you want to import it somewhere in the world, cost would surely jump up after tax and customs, but Meizu smartphones usually manage to hold a price-to-value ratio even after that.
