Meizu marked its entry into India with the launch of its M1 Note on Amazon today. The company announced that it made available 4,000 units of the smartphone available on the e-commerce site, which were lapped up in less than few minutes. It is not sure when the company plans to bring the M1 Note back in stock.

The Chinese smartphone vendor, unlike its competitors, did not sell the smartphone via the flash sale model. Instead, it stuck to the traditional ‘open sale’ model, with a cap of 3 hours for users to pick up the M1 Note freely within the time frame. The company then tweeted that all the units were lapped in exactly 3 minutes 55 seconds in its debut sale.
The Meizu M1 Note is priced at Rs 11,999 and as far as the specifications are concerned, the Meizu M1 Note flaunts a 5.5-inch full HD (1920×1080 pixels) display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection and 403ppi pixel density. It is powered by a MediaTek MT6752 octa-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz and paired with Mali-T760 GPU and 2GB of RAM. Also included is 16GB/32GB internal storage, but no external memory card slot.
The smartphone also features a 13-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel selfie camera, 3,140mAh battery, and connectivity options like dual-SIM card slots, LTE support, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. On the software front, it runs on Android 4.4.4 KitKat wrapped under Flyme 4.0 UI.
