Much like Xiaomi, Meizu has had a great 2014 as far as business goes. They released some really compelling devices this year, like the MX4 and MX4 Pro handsets which are these company’s flagship handsets. The latest device Meizu launched is the M1 Note handset, which is an extremely affordable mid-range device which will appeal to many people for sure. You get a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and a MediaTek’s 64-bit MT6752 octa-core chip for just 999 Yuan in China (the 32GB model will cost you 1,199 Yuan). I believe these specs and the fact that this is an extremely well-built device speak for themselves.
We’ve already covered the launch of the M1 Note at length, including the unboxing of the device and a quick comparison to the MX4 and the MX4 Pro. Well, this time around we have some more images for you comparing these three devices with the addition of the MX3 handset. There are a bunch of images comparing these devices in the gallery down below, courtesy of ePrice, so take a look at those if you’re interested. That’s not all though, we got some additional info from China regarding the pre-orders for the Meizu M1 Note, and it seems like this device is being pre-ordered like crazy, which is not exactly surprising at all. It seems like Meizu M1 Note was pre-ordered over 1 million times in the first 24 hours since it launched, which is just insane. For comparison’s sake, the MX4 Pro got pre-ordered 6.7 million times in the first two weeks (the MX4 was even more popular). The M1 Note could easily crush both the MX4 and the MX4 Pro as far as pre-orders go, perhaps even overall sales, but it’s too early to tell just yet.
Meizu is unfortunately unable to bring their devices to Europe or the U.S. at the moment, but I’m sure the company is going to do its best to make their products available worldwide in the future. You can always purchase their products from various resellers which ship to basically everywhere imaginable, though you’d have to pay a bit more, but some of these devices are so affordable it’s more than worth it. Let us know what you think of the M1 Note in the comments if you’d like.
