Over the past few weeks, we ave been receiving information surrounding Meizu’s intent to join the phablet spectrum with a new handset and now, just a few hours ago, the 6 inch Meizu M3 Max smartphone went official.
The handset is finely built with the all to famous Meizu design — .i.e. dual CNC processed all metal body with finely curved edges – giving it a pretty classy outlook and it comes available in four different color options which include Grey, Rose Gold, Champagne Gold and Silver.
The device measures in at 7.9mm which is just 0.4mm thicker than the Xiaomi Mi Max tablet that was released earlier this year. We see the traditional M-back fingerprint scanner – which can be used for fingerprint payment like Alipay and WeChat — making appearance below the display alongside a 3.5mm headphone jack, speakers and USB Port-C on the bottom of the device.
It has a 6 inch Full HD LCD IPS screen with a resolution of 1080P and underneath the hood, there is a Helio P10 SoC running at 1.8GHz which is accompanied by 3GB of RAM and 64GB internal memory that is expandable to an additional 128GB memory via an external microSD Card slot.
The new Meizu M3 Max features a 13MP Sony IMX 258 main camera at the back that is capable of PDAF and has a dual-tone LED flashlight and it is accompanied upfront by a 5MP selfie snapper. The smartphone draws power from a 4000mAh battery source with 24W mCharge fast charging technology.
Unlike the on going trend adopted by most smartphone vendors, the folks over at Meizu are only making one variant available which is the 3GB + 64GB version and it would be going for $255 on September 15 when its made generally available.
