The M1 Note marks the entry of another Chinese smartphone vendor into the already competitive Indian market. However, unlike its competitors, the company is not selling the smartphone via the flash sale model. Instead, it is sticking to the traditional open sale model, and will make it available freely.
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.
At these spec and price points points, the Meizu M1 Note is set to compete with rivals Xiaomi Mi 4i and Asus Zenfone 1 (ZE550ML).
