Today the launch of the M3E took place. First rumors claimed it could be an Exynos based device, but as some people correctly commented it is just a m-Series device and shouldn’t contain high end hardware. Guess what, the latter ones were right 😉
What accompanies the M3E is a Helio P10 equipped with 3GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage with SD card support up to 128GB.
A little highlight is the 1080p screen with a 403 pixels per inch, offering a relatively sharp experience at 5.5″.
The camera is going to be a Sony IMX258 with 13MP on the rear and 5MP on the front. A 3100mAh fast chargeable battery will give enough power to run the device easily a day with its relatively savvy CPU.
Features like dual SIM or mTouch are included, but they became so common that it is almost not worth to mention it.
But what is the deal with the M3E?
Despite a solid, but lower end hardware, you can choose from 5 colors:
Grey, Silver, Gold, Rose Gold and Blue.
For a price of 1299RMB (175€) you get a quite good package, but considering it will cost more than 200€ from an importer makes it unattractive.
The M3E will be a YunOS powered device, meaning it is actually a China only device. So what Meizu targets here is not our market, but the chinese and therefore seeks for direct competition against Xiaomi, Huawei, and even ZTE. Yet it will be questionable how Meizu wants to do that considering that the Redmi Note 3 Pro offers a larger battery and a Snapdragon CPU, while costing less than the just released M3E.
Nonetheless we invite you to make your own picture.
