M3 Note 1

For the third iteration of the series, Meizu has shunned plastic for metal – specifically, 6000 series aluminum – for the construction of the device. There’s now a fingerprint scanner embedded on the home button of the phone, though the device still retains the 5.5-inch full HD panel that its older siblings came with.

Under the hood the M3 Note carries MediaTek’s Helio P10 processor chugging along at 1.8GHz, along with a Mali T860 GPU. Like other budget phones, the M3 Note will come in two distinct flavors – one 2GB RAM/16GB storage option with a higher 3GB RAM/32GB model for people who want more performance. Both models have expandable storage capabilities.

The phone will come with Voice Over LTE capabilities, and a 4000mAh battery. Prices in China for the M3 Note start at RMB 799 (Php 5.7K) for the 16GB/2GB version and RMB 999 (Php 7.1K) for the 32GB/3GB version.

  1. lucky chinese.. kung dumating man dito syempre lampas 9k na yan 🙁 tsaka mega manila lang mkakabili, maglalaway lang tga visayas at mindanao..

  2. P7.1k para sa 32gb version tapos meron darating na vivo? Nagkaroon kaagad ng kalaban ang oppo f1 plus.

  3. tsk..lcd parin gamit kala ko amoled na..naasar na kasi ako sa LCD andaming issue lalo na yang backlight bleed, naku wala panamang concept store or retail store ditp samin na nag bebenta ng meizu, mahirap na pag ipapadaan pa sa lazada hindi ma check kung may defects ba sa lcd panel madalas backlight bleed panaman ang issue sa mga LCD…

    1. daming issue dami reklamo wala pambili hahaha! sad life.

      iilang brands lang ba gumagamit ng amoled? mainly samsung.

      so you mean to say other brands even with their flagships ay pangit at madaming issue dahil hindi amoled?

      1. i did not say that..ang sinabi sabi ko lang ay mas mura na ang amoled ngayun kontra sa lcd which is, dahil dapat e check talaga dapat ng mabuti ang lcd panel pag ikaw ay bibili dahil mas prone sa issue ang lcd panels kontra sa amoled panels.
