The China-based consumer tech company Meizu has just unveiled its newest affordable-yet-power-packed smartphone called the M1 Note. The M1 Note smartphone will come in multiple color options like in White, Blue, Yellow, Green, Pink and most of all the design language of the device is very reminiscent to Apple's iPhone 5c especially the back panels.
We are looking at a 5.5-inch Full HD display equipped handset, powered by a 64-bit MediaTek octa-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz and paired with a 2GB of RAM. Internal storage will be available in 16GB and 32GB options, sadly the M1 Note does not support microSD card for external space. So that means users will be stuck with either 16GB or 32GB variant. The cameras are pretty nice as well with the rear one pegged at 13MP resolution and equipped with an f/2.2 aperture and dual-tone flash technology. On front is a 5MP lens with f/2.0 aperture for selfie and video call purposes.
The Meizu M1 Note is also boarded by a massive battery juice at 3,140mAh in size which the Chinese company claims to last up to 12 hours on 4G web surfing, 15 hours of video playing and up to 60 hours of playing music.
