After weeks of speculations, Meizu officially took the wraps off the much-awaited budget phablet M3 Note in China April 5.

The new Meizu M3 Note sports a premium metal body made of 6000 series Aluminium alloy similar to the top-end Apple iPhone 6 series. On the front, it features 5.5-inch full HD display with physical home button, which also doubles up as a fingerprint sensor.

Under the hood, it comes packed with 64-bit class MediaTek Helio P10 octa-core SoC (System-on-Chip) backed by sumptuous 2GB/3GB RAM, 16GB/32GB storage and a 4100mAh battery.

It also boasts 13MP primary camera with PDAF (Phase Shift Auto Focus), dual-tone LED flash, f/2.2 aperture and a 5MP snapper on the front.

Meizu M3 Note release and price details:

Like previous generation phones, Meizu M3 Note will also be made available initially in China and later released in other markets. It comes in two storage combinations — 2GB/16GB storage and 3GB/32GB memory — for ¥799 (around $123/€108/Rs. 8,215) and ¥999 (around $154/€136/Rs. 10,272), respectively. Consumers will have the option to buy the device in gold, grey and silver-white colours.

As of now, there is no official word on when Meizu M3 Note will be made available in India. But, the device has already been listed in the product portfolio of the company's India website. So, we expect Meizu to announce the release details soon.
