Meizu m3 vs m2: What's changed and is it worth it?Meizu

Meizu is getting back in the game after months of silence. The Chinese smartphone maker launched the M3 Note smartphone in China earlier this month, which received great response with 100,000 units sold out in just seven minutes. Now, a new Meizu handset made an appearance on Chinese regulator TENAA's website and looks like it is going to be a successor to the popular Meizu m2.

The TENAA listing also has the photos of what appears to be Meizu m3 smartphone, which bears close resemblance to the m2 smartphone. The device appears to have a polycarbonate body with a sealed construction, just like its predecessor, Phone Radar reported.

As per the listing, the rumoured m3 smartphone will come with a 5-inch HD display with 1280x720 pixel resolution, 13MP primary camera with LED flash and a 5MP front snapper. The handset will be powered by a 1.5GHz octa-core processor, backed by 2GB RAM and 16GB expandable storage up to 128GB.

Meizu will also include the dual SIM feature, one of which will act as a microSD card slot, just like in the m2 smartphone. The m3 smartphone will include a 2,800mAh battery, 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and microUSB 2.0 port. The product listed on TENAA runs on Alibaba's Yun OS 3.1.6, but the international variant will likely run on FlymeOS.

Since this is the first time we have heard about the m3 smartphone, we are expecting more details to follow. According to the Phone Radar report, the ultra-affordable handset will come in various colours including white, black, grey, pink and gold. As for the pricing, the m3 might cost around ¥599 in China, which roughly translates into around Rs. 6,000 if the handset makes it to India.

Meizu m3 is still a long way, but the company is expected to launch the M3 Note in India soon. If the rumours are to be believed, the Chinese smartphone company could launch the handset at an event on April 16.
