After almost one month of silence Meizu has returned with a new product – once again.
This time the Meizu E2 has been unveiled, featuring a quad LED flash light included in the antenna stripe at the back of the device.
Available in three colors (silver, champagne gold and black), its the first Meizu device to offer a black backcover.
For a price of approximately 175€, the E2 offers a Helio P20 with 3GB LPDDR4 RAM, Mali T880 GPU, 5.5 inch 1080p display (403PPI), 32GB extendable storage (microSD up to 128GB), a 3400mAh battery, just like the mTouch fingerprint scanner. For a price of 1600RMB (215€), you can expect 4GB RAM with 64GB internal storage.
Connectivity sided both versions support 4G TD-LTE & TD/FDD-LTE, just like Bluetooth 4.2.
While the black case is definitely something we always wished for, its at some point dissapointing to find out that the rear camera only features 13MP. The front one offers 8MP though.
Furthermore the device is still going to be shipped with Android 6 on April 29th powered by YunOS.
Summing it up the E2 is definitely nice to look at, but at the same time dissapointing as well. Not even Meizu’s mCharge technology shown in the MWC has been added.
Overall it just seems like Meizu’s approach of a “redesign” for their future devices. Unlike the Pro 6 or Pro 5 corners became sharper for example. Camera and LED placement are also quite new and were never seen on any Meizu device so far.
Therefore, we shouldn’t judge too early and wait for the flagship devices this year, like the Pro 7.
