Moments ago, Meizu announced the M3, it's successor of the still capable M2. This time, it appears that they're back on track on disrupting the market as this handset appears to be a surefire 2016 game changer for ultra budget smartphones.
|Meizu M3 announced!|
For starters the Meizu M3 is still using polycarbonate body with a 5 inch 720p HD screen, but now has a 2.5D curved glass to make it look a lot better. Under the hood, here's where the real improvement is taking place.
It now runs on the newer MediaTek MT6750 octa core processor paired with the powerful Mali T860 GPU. The M3 still has two options, either the 2 GB RAM / 16 GB ROM edition or the higher spec'ed 3 GB RAM / 32 GB ROM version. To make things sweeter, both storage options are expandable via micro SD card slot.
The Meizu M3 now has a bigger battery for a 5 inch phone at 2,870 mAh, has a 13 MP rear camera f/2.2 aperture, 5 MP f/2.0 selfie shooter and LTE connectivity. Probably, the only missing thing here is the lack of fingerprint scanners like most modern phones do.

However, I wouldn't really complain as this phone has just a starting price of USD 92 (4.3K Pesos) for the basic model and USD 123 (5.3K Pesos) without tax and duties yet. Now let's hope that Novo7Tech will bring this here in the Philippines.
