Meizu rumored to launch another bargain-priced midranger

Meizu rumored to launch another bargain-priced midranger
Just last month, Meizu launched its midrange M1 Note (a.k.a. Blue Charm) – a 64-bit enabled, octa-core CPU-equipped midranger that rocks an amazing value-to-price ratio – something that has become a signature trait for China-based manufacturers. Back then, there were faint rumors that Meizu may announce two handsets – the M1 Note and a smaller variant of it, but that didn't happen.

Today, we're getting news that the smartphone slinger is planning to hold yet another event on the 27th of January, where speculators expect it to finally unveil the mini Blue Charm. Rumors say that the device will make no compromise in specs, but will give users the same M1 Note experience, just in a smaller package – and by “smaller”, we mean a 5” display, most probably housed in Meizu's signature rounded-off body with razor-thin bezels.

The Meizu M1 note packs a 64-bit MediaTek MTK6752, with its eight cores clocked at 1.8 GHz. The device has 2 gigs of RAM, a 13 MP main snapper and a 5 MP selfie cam, 3,140 mAh battery, and a 5.5” display, glowing with a 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution, bringing its PPI density to the pretty sharp ratio of 403. Now, if the M1 Mini is all this, but in a 5” display – it definitely sounds tasty.

The only proof there is to substantiate this rumor is a picture of the alleged M1 Note Mini's back panel, however, this could easily be a panel from the standard Blue Charm. Still, Meizu is announcing something on the 27th this month, so let's hold tight and see what it might be.

You can't get the M1 Note from Meizu's international store right now – the place where you can grab an MX4 or pre-order an MX4 Pro – but we wouldn't be surprised if it becomes available soon. The Blue Charm currently costs around $160 / $190 (internal storage dependent) in China, and while this number will definitely be higher for international buyers, we wouldn't expect it to go much higher than ~$350, which is still a bargain.

Another iPhone 5c clone? No thanks.

Anything more than USD 200 is not worth it. One can get a brand new Galaxy S4 for USD 350 instead which smokes away M1 Note in every aspect save looks.
