Meizu M1 Note Mini could be Xiaomi Redmi 2 rival

#

Earlier this month Xiaomi introduced its Redmi 2 smartphone that has plenty to offer at an affordable price. Now it appears that Meizu may be about to unveil a competitor in the form of the Meizu M1 Note Mini. Back in December Meizu made the M1 Note official and it’s now being reported that a Meizu M1 Note Mini that could rival the Redmi 2 might be announced very soon.

It’s expected that the mini version of the M1 Note will be made official on January 28th. The standard version (pictured below) has a 5.5-inch display and the leak gives the M1 Note Mini a 5-inch display, so really not too mini at all! However, it’s said that rather than the 1920 x 1080 resolution of the M1 Note, the mini variety is more likely to have resolution of 1280 x 720.

Other specs are said to include a MediaTek 64-bit processor and LTE connectivity, and it would run the Flyme OS. The M1 Note Mini has a suggested price of just $100 or thereabouts. The standard M1 Note is priced at CNY 999, that’s equivalent to around $160 by comparison. The expected price of the M1 Note Mini means it would be close to the Xiaomi Redmi 2 (Hongmi 2) in price, and that handset has a 4.7-inch display and Snapdragon 410 64-bit quad-core processor.

It’s not too much longer until January 28 when we should be hearing much more about the so-called Meizu M1 Note Mini, and it’s anticipated that the company will also be announcing a new payments system. Until then we’d like to hear your initial thoughts on the upcoming smartphone.
