While everyone is anxious for Meizu to launch the M5 Note on December 6, another smartphone is in works. Meizu M3X is the new phone currently undergoing the prototype and tests based on its recent visit at GeekBench, a benchmarks listing website.
As per the GeekBench listing, the Meizu M3X did not hold back from revealing the key details. The M3X packs an octa-core MediaTek MT6757 ‘Helio P20’ chipset paired with 3GB of RAM. The Helio P20 integrates the new Mali T880 MP2 GPU for handling graphics.
By default, Meizu M3X runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. We have a reason to believe that it will have the latest FlymeOS 6 layered on top of it.
The listing doesn’t reveal much about the display or battery. However, judging from the recent Meizu M3s launch, the new M3X appears to be a slightly amped iteration.
The metal unibody clad M3s has a 2.5D glass 5-inch HD (720x1280p) display. An octa-core MediaTek MT6750 processor with Mali-T860MP2 GPU powers the phone. Of the two variants, one with 2GB of RAM packs 16GB internal storage while other with 3GB of RAM packs 32GB storage. Of course, you can add up to 256GB microSD card as well.
The M3s has a 13-megapixel rear snapper with f/2.2 aperture and dual-tone LED flash. On the front is a 5-megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture. Meizu has also integrated the mTouch 2.1 fingerprint sensor and the phone boots FlymeOS 5.1 based on Android 5.1 Lollipop. This dual-SIM phone supports 4G LTE and packs 3020mAh battery inside.
Meizu also introduced the new M3E with YunOS in its home region, China. Soon, the M3X will also join the M3C and M3E. The M3X could easily be slotted a bit higher than these two models and yet fall in the budget-level category. There is no word on the Meizu M3X’s official launch but we shall keep our eyes open.
