Chinese manufacturer Meizu is on the verge of launching a new line of smartphones, fact confirmed by a few leaked shots with an initially unknown model, which seems to be an upcoming handset, currently going by the name of Meizu ME1.
Even more, alongside the code name, more details about the phone were released today, including a set of live shots of a black version of the Meizu M1E, alongside an AnTuTu benchmark result.
The phone is apparently powered by a MediaTek Helio P10 system-on-chip, alongside 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage and a 13 MP rear-mounted camera. Also, an internal report provided by none other than Meizu’s VP, Mr. Li Nan, reveals that the display will measure 5.5 inches and will feature a full HD resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels, while the Helip P10 chip will be running at 1.8 GHz. The same source claims that the front-facing camera will be using a 5 MP sensor and finally, the battery has a capacity of 3100 mAh, with support for fast charging.
GSMArena reveals that the Meizu M1E will actually hit the market under a totally different name: Blue Charm E, with the “E” standing short for “Elite”. Also, considering that Blue Charm devices are marketed in the West as “note” smartphones, a name like Meizu E1 note also seems very likely.
VP Li Nan also provided details about the estimated price, which will be around $250, and a launch date, August. The latter is also confirmed by a set of images with unopened invitations to the event, having “E” and “8-10” written on them.
To sum up, we’re looking forward to seeing another cheap but powerful enough Meizu handset, which will once again prove that the company is not a “simple Chinese manufacturer” anymore.
