Starting at less than US$125, the new Meizu M6T is powered by the outdated MediaTek MT6750 processor, but its main selling point is the 13 MP + 2 MP main camera setup on the back. This 5.7-inch handset also has a 3,300 mAh battery and a traditional audio jack, but it is only available in China for now.

The dual camera setup is becoming a norm amongst mid-range and high-end handsets, and flagships are already starting to use three cameras on the back (take a look at the excellent photo capabilities of the Huawei P20 Pro to get a better idea about the progress achieved). However, most affordable handsets priced around US$150 and below only use a single sensor for the main camera assembly. Earlier this week, the Meizu M6T arrived in China just as promised, thus becoming one of the few sub-US$125 smartphones by a well-known brand that feature a dual camera setup on the back.

Adding a dual camera to the list of a 5.7-inch handset is not such an easy task, so compromises had to be made. In this case, Meizu chose to sacrifice processing power and used the MediaTek MT6750, a chip that will celebrate its second anniversary in August. The 5.7-inch display has a decent HD+ resolution (1,440 x 720 pixels) and the cameras provide 8 MP for selfies and 13 MP + 2 MP for the usual mobile photography tasks. A 3,300 mAh battery powers the device, and the list of other things that need to be mentioned here includes a microSD slot with support for memory cards up to 128 GB in size, a headphone jack, and — if anyone was expecting USB Type-C — only an old micro USB port.

There are three memory/storage configurations for the Meizu M6T, priced as it follows: 3 GB and 32 GB for almost US$125 (CN¥799), 4 GB and 32 GB for ~US$155 (CN¥999), and 4 GB/64 GB for a price of around US$170 (CN¥1,099). The operating system is Android 8.0 Oreo with Meizu's FlyMe 7.0 UI on top, and the color choices available are black, gold, and red.

Considering all the above — and the video review below, of course — would you grab a Meizu M6T if it becomes available in your country (or if you travel to China and bump into it)?

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
