Meizu Blue Charm Note 2 (M2 Note) goes official: great specs at an even lower price of less than $130


The Meizu Blue Charm Note 2 (aka Meizu M2 Note) is now official. It brings Android 5.0 Lollipop, a brand new octa-core MT6753 64-bit-compatible chip, a slightly refreshed visual style, and an even lower price tag than the original m1 note.

Quite interestingly, rather than having that typical for Meizu round capacitive button below the screen, the M2 Note features a physical key. Contrary to expectations, it does not have a fingerprint scanner built-in, but can still differentiate between a tap and a click: clicking would bring you back to the main screen, while a tap brings you back a step.

Here is a quick run-down of the main specs of the new Meizu M2 Note:

Platform: Android 5 Lollipop with Flyme skin
Dimensions: 150.9 x 75.2 x 8.7mm, weight of 149g
Screen: 5.5-inch Sharp IGZO IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels
System chip: MediaTek MT6753 with 8 Cortex A53 cores running at up to 1.3GHz
RAM: 2GB LPDD3 800MHz
Main camera: 13-megapixel with 5-element f/2.2 lens
Front cam: 5-megapixel with f/2.0 lens
Battery: 3100mAh

The M2 Note comes in two storage versions: a 16GB and a 32GB one, and both support memory expansion via microSD cards. The 16 gig version starts at sub $130 (799 yuan), while the 32GB model will sell for $160 (999 yuan).

The Meizu M2 Note is available for pre-order from China right now, with in-store availability scheduled for June 12th. The device will not be on sale outside of China officially, but naturally, you can still buy it from countless third-party resellers, for a slight price premium.

this phone could be perfect, if only the bootloader can be unlocked.

Other than the home button, this is exactly the same. What the hell is the point?

Nubia/ZTE said Meizu's little circle Home button infringe their patent, so, you know.

What else do you expect with that price tag? You should be happy that you are getting a true smartphone running Android OS rather than complaining about the home button. Being an Android user and fan I just love the options we have in this mobile space. Look at iFans they always have to pay extra every year for the same stuff over and over but from deep inside their hearts they cry.

Yes, the chipset is a bit slower compared to mt6752. However, the price has also been lowered. Also, there is an option to insert microsd card and they say the isp has been improved that leads to better pictures.
