The Meizu M9 Note is billed to launch in mid-February, Snapdragon 675 and 48 MP camera on-board
Meizu is set to launch yet another device in the coming weeks. The smartphone, the Meizu M9 Note, is expected to land in mid-February and will be positioned against the new Redmi Note 7.
The M9 Note succeeds the Snapdragon 632-powered M8 Note that was released back in October last year. It will, however, offer a far more impressive package. For one, it will feature the new Snapdragon 675, which would make it one of the first phones ever to ship with that SoC. It’s also said to sport Samsung’s 48 MP GM1 sensor, the same sensor on the Redmi Note 7. That’s a bit underwhelming, of course, since the Snapdragon 675 supports the 48 MP Sony IMX586, which is a much better sensor than the GM1.
In any case, we expect the M9 Note to do more with the GM1 than Xiaomi managed with the Redmi Note 7. Meizu phones generally have better than average cameras and we were fans of the M6 Note two years ago, and the Meizu 16 phones last year. Like the Redmi Note 7, the M9 Note will sport a 4000 mAh battery.
Prices are expected to start at CNY 1,000, or US$150.
