Today Meizu has announced the PRO 5, a new premium flagship smart phone which has the means to take on the best Android smart phones available today. With Samsung dominating benchmarks with its own in house developed components, you won’t be surprised to see Meizu putting the best possible specs to raise the bar higher.
About 6 months ago, Meizu had just gotten its hands into the entry-level smart phone segment with the m1, or better known as Blue Charm (“Mei Lan”) in China. With Xiaomi having its Redmi 2 enhanced version, Meizu has finally a well deserved response with its new m2 smart phone.
The m2 looks the same as the former m1, with an identical 5″ HD 720p IPS display and the front capacitive home button is now replaced with a physical key. Powering the device is a newer MediaTek MT6735 Quad-Core processor but it is clocked lower at 1.3GHz. As comparison, the previous m1 runs on a MediaTek MT6732 procesor with 4 cores running at 1.5GHz.
Meizu’s new affordable phablet, the M2 Note is now available for purchase in Malaysia. Originally priced at RM799, the 4G LTE dual-SIM ready M2 Note is offered at only RM699 during its 2 weeks exclusivity period on Lazada Malaysia. Apart from its RM100-off offer, you’ll also get a free back case and tempered glass with your purchase.
Meizu is a quirky Chinese smart phone brand that offers a different kind of Android experience with its FlymeOS. If you’re looking for something really different, the Meizu M2 Note will be available officially in Malaysia starting this Thursday, 23rd July exclusively on Lazada.
It retails at RM799 but you can get it at only RM699 during its exclusive period through Lazada Malaysia. In addition, they are also giving away a free M2 Note back Case and Tempered glass protection. At the moment, only the 16GB storage version of the M2 Note is being offered and it comes only in Grey colour with limited stocks available.
It looks like a busy day in China as Meizu has announced its latest flagship, the MX5. Replacing the previous Meizu MX4 that came with an odd 5.36″ 1920×1152 pixel resolution IPS display, the Meizu MX5 gets a larger 5.5″ AMOLED screen that does a more conventional Full HD resolution of 1920×1080. The front looks similar with its MX4 Pro as it gets a home button that doubles up as a one-touch fingerprint scanner.
The MX5 now comes with a metal unibody design which is more sturdy compared to the current MX4 that has a removable plastic back cover. Despite having more metal, the MX5 is only slightly heavier at 149g (MX4: 147g) and it manages to trim its thickness down to just 7.6mm (MX4: 8.9mm).
We have reported about some very over the top claims about the upcoming Meizu MX5, from the purported 41 megapixel snapper to the more sensible 5.5 inch screen, but instead we have some new information on the MX5 as well as leaked images of Meizu’s as of yet unreleased Meizu MX5 Pro.
Meizu is gearing up for a new phone launch and it can barely contain itself, launching multiple teasers with the launch date for their new devices come June.
The teasers were initially spotted on Meizu’s official Weibo account detailing an event that will be taking place in Beijing. Sources say that the Meizu MX5 and the m1 note 2 might be launched this June so this is very likely the event that they will be debuted at.
Otherwise, there’s practically no additional information as the teasers themselves are quite spartan. The teaser just has some focus on a newly redesigned home button that is being referenced by the big zero, which points to Meizu incorporating a fingerprint scanner into their home button.
A new pair of images of the supposed Meizu MX Supreme have surfaced, showing a home button that’s said to have an embedded fingerprint scanner.
This smartphone is believed to be a product of a collaboration between Nokia and Meizu, but as part of Microsoft’s purchase of the Devices and Services division of Nokia, they’ve agreed to not compete with a branded device until 2016.
