The Meizu M2 was launched in the month of October 2015. The Meizu M2e is rumored to launch in the month of late May 2017. Though it isn’t officially released, specs and performance sheets have started to appear all over the internet. It is supposedly the successor the Meizu M2. It is rumored to be a budget segment device, and as said before, the price range is considered to better judge the features you will be getting at for your money. So far, the device seems decent both in terms of features and their performance. Let's take a look into the luggage the M2e has stored for their users.
The M2e will be sporting a 5.5-inch full HD, IPS LCD display, with a resolution of 1920 x 108op. the touchscreen will support up to 5 finger gestures. Nothing more about the display is confirmed, but according to the price segment, we are assuming that it will be at least a Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The device will be available in two to three different colors variants, and according to the leaked pictures, it may have a metallic body. No other information regarding the pixel density or the screen is to body ratio has been found online and we think that they will me made public once the device is released.
According to the pictures, the device looks pretty decent and gives a premium vibe thanks to the metal finish. However, once the device is released we will give out the full hands-on review, filling in all the gaps as of now.
The M2e aims to capture the middle ground but with its contemporaries sporting an octa-core processor, it will be worth watching the how the hexa-core processor fairs against them and how the users see the downgrade of the specs. The hexacore shouldn’t be a problem if the Chinese company manages to replicate the performance of and octa-core processor.
Under the hood, the M2e runs on Android 6.0.1 (Marshmallow) powered by the MediaTek MT6757 octa-core CPU, clocked at 2.3 GHZ. The processor is made of Cortex A53 cores of the new ARMv* architecture. In terms of GPU, the M23 has the Mali-T880 MP2 with two cores and supports OpenCL 1.1. in terms of RAM the M2e is a monster in its price segment. With 4 GB of RAM of which almost 3 GB will be available to the user, the device will perform like a breeze, if the processor can support the workload. The device has an inbuilt storage of 64GB with no expandable capacity. This may sting the device in the long run. 64 GB of storage is pretty decent but with no additional storage, users may run out space in time. Also, there is an added worry that is the device needs to be reset anytime, all the data will be lost, which could have been backed up is there was an external storage.
The Meizu M2e sports a rear 13 MP camera with face detection, autofocus, LED flash d HDR photography. The front camera is a 8MP shooter. We don’t know the video recording capacity of the M2e, but since it has a full HD display and a powerful processor, we are assuming that it will be able to record 1080p videos, without any such hiccup.
Recording videos in FHD will burn through the memory like petroleum through paper. It will be over before you notice it. In conclusion, you will only be able to capture a handful of those precious moments in FHD and the rest you will have to improvise.
The Meizu M2e will be powered by a 3100 mAh Li-ion battery and is said to last throughout the whole day. We guess it to be a removable one since no details regarding a hybrid sim card tray or specifically it being a non-removable battery have been leaked on the internet. The device will have dual sim support and 4G connectivity. It has LTE by default the VoLTE feature wasn’t mentioned anywhere in the sneak peeks, although it is now a norm. WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth and other basic connectivity features are nothing out of the ordinary.
