Chinese company Meizu introduced a new smartphone called the M1 Note with its signature low price for an impressive set of specs.

The Meizu M1 Note has a 5.5-inch 1080p screen, 4G LTE connectivity, 13MP camera and runs on an octa core processor, 2GB of RAM and Android Kitkat OS with the Flyme 4 user interface.

The full HD display of the Meizu M1 Note uses Indium Gallium Zinc oxide (IGZO) technology with GFF lamination making it less reflective and power hungry.

It comes in a polycarbonate unibody design of a variety of colors with a Magnesium-alloy chassis. A layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 also protects the device’s front panel.

Under the hood, a 1.7GHz octa core 64-bit processor from MediaTek runs the show together with a dual core Mali T760 GPU and 2GB of RAM.

It has a 5MP front facing from OmniVision with a 69° field of vision and software enhancements for selfies.

In terms of connectivity, it can access 4G LTE and 3G HSPA+ on one SIM while SIM 2 is restricted to 2G networks. It also supports dual band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0.
