As planned, Meizu launched today its new affordable smartphone, the smaller version of M1 Note, the M1 or Meizu Blue Charm.
During the “Connected” event, Meizu introduced among other devices and the new version of Flyme 4.2 OS.
To get to the chase, the M1 features a 5 inch display with 720p resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass 3, and it is equipped with a quad core MediaTek MT6732 processor at 1.5Ghz. The internal storage is 8GB with the ability to expand up to 128GB via a microSD card, while its RAM is only 1GB and runs on FlymeOS based on Android 4.4 OS. The cameras are a 13MP rear with HD video recording capability, Blue-glass filter and f/2.2 aperture and a 5MP front-facing with f/2.0 aperture and a 69° wide-angle lens. There is also support for dual band WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and GLONASS, as well as 4G LTE support for China. Last but not least, the battery capacity of Meizu M1 is 2650mAh, measures 140.2 x 72.1 x 8.9 mm and weights only 128gr.
The Meizu M1 will be available in many colors, such as Peppermint Green, Yellow, Pink, Blue, Green and White. Its price is set at approximately 110$ and it will be available for pre-orders on Feburary 5!
Compared to the rival Xiaomi Redmi 2, the only downside of Meizu‘s new smartphone is the 1GB of RAM, the lack of dual sim slot, but the fact that there is a 13MP main camera at such a low priced smartphone is definitely a plus! (我回顾中国手机)
