Meizu recently launched a more compact, more pocket-friendly variant of its M3 Note, dubbed as the M3s, in India. The new Meizu handset has a smaller 5-inch HD display and a dialed down MediaTek Chipset. The rest remains more or less same.
The Meizu m3s is powered by octa-core MediaTek MT6750 with 2 Clusters of Cortex A53 cores ticking at 1.5GHz and 1GHz respectively. You get to choose between 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, and 2GB RAM with 16GB storage options. The storage for both variants is expandable by up to 128GB.
Though you get the latest Meizu Flyme OS skin on top, the base android version is still Android Lollipop. Meizu is using the same camera hardware as on m3 Note. There is a 13MP rear camera with dual-tone LED Flash, PDAF, f/2.2 aperture and a 5MP front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture. The camera quality on m3 Note wasn't exactly impressive, so we are not expecting anything groundbreaking with m3s either.
The handset has a hybrid SIM tray, which means you have to choose between dual SIM and MicroSD card privileges. Other features include 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n (2.4GHz/5GHz), Bluetooth 4.0, GPS / GLONASS, a fingerprint sensor integrated with m-touch home button and a 3020mAh battery.
Meizu m3s price in India starts at 7,999 INR. The handset offers a beautiful compact metal body design and will be available in Gold, Silver, Grey and Pink color options.
