Meizu just announced m3, successor of last year’s m3 at an event in China. It packs a 5-inch HD screen with 2.5D curved glass display, is powered by a 1.5 GHz octa-core 64-bit MediaTek MT6750 processor, compared to the MT6735 SoC on the predecessor and runs on YunOS with FlyMe 5.1 on the top. It has a 13-megapixel rear camera with dual-tone LED flash, phase-detection auto-focus (PDAF) that lets you focus in just 0.2 seconds and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
It has a hybrid SIM slot that lets you use the second slot as a microSD slot when required and also comes with 4G support on both. It has a poly-carbonate body and lacks a fingerprint sensor.
