Chinese smartphone maker Meizu has recently sent out invitations for a press event set for the date of August 10. The device said to be unveiled is the Meizu M1E. The smartphone has a strikingly similar frontal design to another major smartphone maker. Not a huge surprise there.
The device’s render below looks like the images that were leaked earlier. Those photos also revealed benchmark screenshots showing off the specs powering the smartphone. The alleged specs are as follows: Mediatek MT 6755 Soc (Helio P10), 5.5 inch 1080p display, 3GB of RAM, and runs on Flyme OS 5.2.1 based on Android Lollipop 5.1.1.
Two sets of leaked images report a similarly looking devices conflict in devices. This could mean the August 10 press event could potentially announce two models under the name 'Meizu E'. A mid-ranger device with the above specs and a higher end smartphone with a more powerful Exynos 8890 CPU.
As always, these are rumors and should not be taken to heart. Things always have a chance of changing early on and they don't always represent the final product.
Thanks for the Tip Colby
Meizu isn't using SD820 because they don't want to shell out extra cash obviously. Their business model might understand their own market better, maybe paying that much extra cost would inflate the price of the handset and thus they'll lose customers...
If they would pay, Qualcomm would make SoC that supports all their needs (they did before and still do for some other manufacturers, let's take Mi5 or 1+3 for example, wich are bestsellers and still doesn't have MTK versions for China).
Hahaha here Huawei is a major presence in the market along with some local brands. Samsung is also selling crappy Js by the millions as well as LG which sells cheaper flagships of last season mostly. Apple is selling well too but rest of the Tier-1 m...
