Meizu m2 AnTuTu score surfaces - not too shabby
The Meizu m- series are the company's entry level / midrange handsets – they are plastic, they are colorful, and they pack quite a hardware punch considering their humble price tags. Also known as "Blue Charm", the series was "born" this January with the release of the original Meizu m1 and Meizu m1 note. Now, instead of sticking to a yearly refresh schedule, the company is launching the second wave of its midrangers – the m2 note has been released, and the m2 is due to be launched on the 29th of July (remember this cool invite?).

Now, it is clear that the m2 will bear a humble hardware under its colorful shell, but what is expected to traditionally make the device exciting is its low price tag. The m1 had a 5" 720p screen, a 64-bit 1.5 GHz MediaTek 6732, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of expandable storage, and a potent (at least on paper) 13 MP / 5 MP camera combo, all for the equivalent of $112. As for the m2 – a TENAA certification listed it as having a 5-inch display with a resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels, a 64-bit MediaTek 6735 SoC with an octa-core CPU and a Mali-T720GPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a 13MP primary camera, a 5MP "selfie" sensor on the front, a 2700mAh battery, 4G LTE connectivity, and dual-SIM capabilities.

Now for the juicy part – AnTuTu benchmarks of the upcoming m2 have leaked. They show the phone passing the 28k score mark – about 3,500 points behind the m2 note, but a good score none the less. But hey – Meizu was the AnTuTu king back in 2014 and we have no reason to believe that its midrangers wouldn't reflect that. As always, we hope that these benchmark scores are reflected in real life usage.
