Meizu M1 Note Mini to be announced on January 28, seems to be a Xiaomi Redmi 2 competitor
Meizu recently surprised us with the introduction of the M1 Note (aka Blue Charm), a 1080p, octa-core smartphone that costs just $160 (at least in China). A smaller and even cheaper version of the M1 Note should be announced later this month, on January 28 - not on January 27, as previously reported.

The new handset could be called Meizu M1 Note Mini, reportedly offering a 5-inch display (most likely with 720 x 1280, not 1080 x 1920 pixels), LTE connectivity, and a 64-bit processor made by MediaTek. It's said that the M1 Note Mini will cost around $100, thus being Meizu's response to the Xiaomi Redmi 2 - which is also a 64-bit handset, though this one is powered by a Snapdragon 410 processor. Just like the larger M1 Note, the mini version will run Flyme OS (Meizu's own take on Android).

Meizu's January 28 event won't be just about a new smartphone. It looks like the company is also getting ready to announce its own payment system (à la Apple), smart home devices, and something related to fitness - probably a wearable band of some sorts.

Of course M1 Note looks beautiful, because this is just a enlarged clone of iPhone 5C!

"M1 Note". It's a shame that it copies Samsung name. It's time to protect your patent, Samsung. It's getting too far!

STFU stupid fag. Is the word "note" English or Korean? Filing a patent for a word in the English dictionary? You're a retard. It's sure getting too far up your ass when Chinese manufacturers starting to take over. Bye bye overpriced Samesung craps.

What a low attitude from retarded fanboy. "Galaxy Note" and "M1 Note". Very similar, right? Everyone knows that most Chinese makers just copy this from Samsung and Apple. Deal with it! And keep dreaming that they can overtake Samsung. Samsung is the biggest tech with thousands patents in its hand. It's also one of the biggest spender in term of R&D. Your hate toward Samsung can't change anything.
