Just weeks after launching the $298 Meizu MX6 smartphone in China, Meizu has unveiled a new phone with less impressive specs, but a design that’s reminiscent of the MX6 and a price that’s more than $100 lower.
The new Meizu M3E is priced at 1,299 yuan, or $195. The phone has a 5.5 inch full HD display, 3GB of RAM, and a fingerprint sensor, among other semi-premium features.
The Meizu M3E has a MediaTek Helio P10 octa-core processor with four 1.8 GHz ARM Cortex-A53 CPU cores, four 1 GHz Cortex-a53 cores, and ARM Mali-T860 graphics.
It has 32GB of storage, a 3,100 mAH battery with fast charging support, dual SIM support, and a 13MP Sony IMX258 rear camera as well as a 5MP front-facing camera.
Other features include 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, and GPS support as well as one unusual feature: the ability to unlock the doors, control the heat, and display info for at least one Chinese car.
