The Meizu m1 metal was unveiled about a month ago and now you can buy one. There are already a few online shops specializing in Chinese phones that stock it.
Our (hasty) check showed that the 16GB version is available for as low as $220/€209.
The 32GB version (still 2GB RAM) is up for pre-order and can be had for $250/€238, but it will ship a but later.
We're working on a review of the m1 metal, stay tuned for detailed tests. The short version of the story is a 5.5" 1080p screen, dual-SIM, microSD slot (takes the spot of SIM2), octa-core processor (MT6795 Helio X10 chipset), 13MP main camera plus 5MP selfie cam and a metallic back - a certain improvement over the original m1 note.
a bit too expensive, its suppose to be competing with redmi note 2, but this is a fair bit more
So, instead of using m2 metal (as rumoured before), it changes name to m1 metal. The specs remains the same as m2 note, except the addition of fingerprint scanner and the use of helio x10
If the body is made out of metal, why isn't there plastic antenna lines on the back?
