Smartphone maker Meizu has launched a new budget handset, M2, in China.

The new Meizu M2 sports 5.0-inch HD display and runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop (with Flyme v4.5 UI) backed by 1.3GHz MediaTek quad-core SoC (System on Chip), 2GB RAM, 16GB inbuilt memory, 2500 mAh battery.

It also features 13mp camera with f/2.0 aperture protected with Gorilla Glass 3 shield and 5mp snapper on the front with f/2.2 aperture. To further enrich the photography experience, the company incorporated proprietary FotoNation 2.0 smart selfie enhancement tool and 'Face AE' face light boost feature.

Meizu M2 Availability and Price Details:

The company has reportedly confirmed that new Meizu M2 will be initially made in China in four colour variants: White, Grey, Blue and Pink for ¥599 (around $97/€88/ Rs 6,200).

Will Meizu M2 Set Foot in India?

As of now, Meizu sells only M1 Note in India and since the country's smartphone market is among the fastest growing business arena in the world, it has a lot of potential to generate revenue.

Numerous Chinese companies like Xiaomi, ZTE (Nubia), Huawei (& Honor) and Lenovo (& Motorola) are increasing their device portfolio, hence, it won't be a surprise if Meizu launches M2 in India.

Going by its specifications and low price tag, Meizu M2 can a give a stiff competition to popular 2nd Gen Motorola Moto E (both 3G & 4G), Xiaomi Redmi 2, YU Yuphoria and others in India.
