Meizu unveils the M6 Note: Snapdragon 625, dual cameras, competitive pricing
The Galaxy Note 8 was not the only Note announced yesterday - Chinese superstar Meizu took the chance to unveil its newest handset, the M6 Note, as well.
Design-wise, this new handset comes in a full-metal design that doesn't bring anything exciting to the table, but that's perfectly okay as the handset looks quite sleek in the renders we put our eyes on. There's a dual camera at the back and a fingerprint sensor embedded in the home button at the front, and that's pretty much all the interesting stuff going on here.
As far as specs go, the M6 Note comes along with a 5.5-inch 1080p display and a Snapdragon 625 chipset inside, which is one of the mid-range chips in Qualcomm's portfolio that will last you the longest on a single charge. The phone is also coming along with either 3GB of RAM / 16GB of storage, 3GB RAM / 32GB of storage, and a 4GB RAM version with 64GB of native storage inside. A large, 4,000mAh battery will be keeping the lights on, with a fast charger supplied for rapid charging.
The main shooter is a 12MP f/1.9 snapper with a Sony IMX362 with a 5MP one to allow for the addition of an artificial bokeh effect to the portraits taken with the phone. It's said that the phone will lock in focus quite fast - in merely 0.03s. Up front, we have a 16MP camera that will take care of our detailed selfies.
Availability-wise, the phone will likely sell in China, India, and select Western markets though none are explicitly specified. Price-wise, the 16GB version will sell for the local Chinese equivalent of $164, the 32GB one will go for $194, and the top 64GB one will be available for roughly $254. Users will be able to choose between Black, Blue, and Gold versions of the phone.
