Meizu M1 Note Mini to be announced on January 28, seems to be a Xiaomi Redmi 2 competitor
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.
