Meizu Announces January 28th Event
Meizu has been quite busy lately. The company seems to be looking to take on China’s number one, Xiaomi, with it’s recently released M1 Note. Taking aim directly at the formidable Redmi Note, the M1 Note brings together affordability with respectable specifications costing only CN¥ 999 (MYR 577/USD$ 160). The M1 Note comes with a 5.5-inch IGZO Full HD 1080p display running on MediaTek’s MT6752 Octa-core processor clocked at 1.7 GHz and 2GB of RAM.
It now looks like the Chinese manufacturer will be announcing a smaller version of the Meizu M1 Note on 28th January, this Wednesday. Rumours mention that the Meizu M1 mini will be coming with a 5-inch 720p HD display powered by a 64-bit capable MediaTek processor with 4G LTE connectivity and dual SIM support. The device is speculated to come at a sub CN¥ 699 (MYR 404/USD$ 112).
Looking at their teasers, Meizu maybe looking to announce and launch more than just a smartphone. The teasers include one for fitness which many are speculating points to Meizu launching their own wearable to take on the Xiaomi MiBand. They also tease a smart home or WiFi solution and their own payment service, something Apple and Samsung are both looking into now.
We’ll just have to wait for this Wednesday to find out more.
