Meizu m1 note 2 pricing leaks on JD.com; phone to be officially unveiled on June 2nd
The Meizu m1 note 2 will officially be unveiled on Tuesday, June 2nd. But Chinese online retailer JD.com already has the device listed on its website, priced at the equivalent of $209 USD. That is more expensive than the Meizu m1 note, which is priced at the equivalent of $161 USD. While the online retailer is accepting paid reservations for the device, it does say that the phone will go on sale for real on June 18th, and pricing is subject to change. That means that Meizu might announce a lower price than what JD.com has posted on its site for now.

Meizu has moved the power button to the side, and under the volume rocker. The Meizu m1 note had its power button mounted on top of the device where it is hard for some to reach. Other Chinese manufacturers are also putting the power buttons on their new handsets in the same location.

While specs are unknown, a recent GFXBench visit by the m1 note 2 showed a device with a 4.6-inch screen carrying a resolution of 1080 x 1920. The MediaTek MT6753 SoC is under the hood with an octa-core 1.3GHz CPU and the Mali-T720 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of native storage. A 13MP camera adorns the back while an 8MP front-facing snapper graces the front of the unit for selfies and video chats. Android 5.1 is pre-installed.

There are a couple of question marks. One is the size of the screen. We have been expecting the m1 note 2 to be endowed with the same 5.5-inch screen seen on its predecessor. And there is a question about whether the oval button under the screen contains a fingerprint scanner. We should have all of these questions answered tomorrow once Meizu unwraps this new model.

4.6"??? May be a mini version with regular 5.5" phone. It would be great if they've used a perfect oval shape for the button.

What an idiotic naming convention. Sounds like Meizu m version 1 Note version 2.
