Meizu just launched its M3 Max, which is a scaled M3 Note. Quite literally. The two handsets aren’t much different, at least regarding hardware specifications.
Even though the display has been stretched to 6-inches in size, the display resolution (Full HD) and battery capacity remain unchanged (4100mAh).
The new Meizu M3 Max is powered by the same Helio P10 chipset with 3GB RAM and 64GB storage. Other notable features include 13MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, fingerprint sensor at the bottom, 4G VoLTE, dual-band WiFi, and Bluetooth 4.1LE.
Apart from the increase in size the only visible differences, compared to M3 Note, are 64GB native storage, updated Android Marshmallow software with FlyMe OS 5.2 on top and choice between more colors (Champagne Gold, Silver, Gray and Rose Gold).

The idea is to pass on the same m3 Note experience to a bigger canvas. At this point, however, an upgraded version – something with Snapdragon 650/652 or perhaps a 4GB RAM option would have struck better with consumer sentiment.
