Meizu's first flash sale for its affordable M3 Note smartphone ended on Tuesday and the company is now preparing for another sale next week. The Chinese smartphone-maker did not reveal how many units of the M3 Note handset were sold on its first sale, but the sale lasted only for a few minutes.
For those who were unable to purchase the M3 Note on Tuesday, registrations for the next sale on June 7 are open on Amazon India. Just like the first sale, the upcoming sale will also begin at 2 p.m. next Tuesday and the registrations are mandatory for participation. The company had said it had received more than 3 lakh registrations within two weeks for the M3 Note's first flash sale.
Going by the demand for the handset, it is likely that the M3 Note won't be available for long, as thousands of potential buyers rush to purchase the device when it becomes available. Meizu M3 Note is priced at Rs. 9,999 and is one of the best premium budget devices in the market right now. It competes against the likes of LeEco Le 1s Eco, Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, Lenovo K4 Note, Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus and Samsung Galaxy J3.
For its price, the M3 Note offers a 5.5-inch full HD display with 2.5D glass screen. It is powered by a 64-bit class MediaTek Helio P10 octa-core processor, Android 5.1 Lollipop-based Flyme OS and a 4,100mAh battery.
We have reviewed the M3 Note and found it appealing on many levels. The handset's design is quite compelling as it boasts a metal unibody with soft curved edges along the sides and the corners. Overall, Meizu M3 Note is a charmer and positions itself among one of the best looking smartphones in its price range.
