Chinese underdogs Meizu are set to launch a high-value budget device next month. The Meizu M9 Note will feature a 48 MP Samsung sensor and will be powered by a Snapdragon 675. These, coupled with a US$150 price tag, ensure that it competes effectively against the Redmi Note 7.

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.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
