Meizu just introduced the M2 Note, though somehow it doesn’t want to get away under the shadow of its predecessor, the M1 Note. And why not, if still has great specs and cool design with now on an even lower price point?
The M2 Note packs the same 5.5-inch full high definition IGZO IPS display, cased with same sturdy sleek plastic in almost the same weight and dimensions. Cameras at 13MP and 5MP on the rear and on front, respectively too.
What gets revamped is its octa-core processor from MediaTek, now putting in the MT6753 tweaked at 1.3GHz, but still paired with 2GB of RAM. And internal memory now comes with two configurations that is with 16GB and 32GB.

Another timely update is its OS, which now comes pre-installed with Lollipop 5 with Flyme 4 UI on top of Android. And the most obvious add-on would be including a physical home button, replacing the notable Meizu round capacitive button. However, they managed to give it a dual function that is besides pressing it to go to home panel, it also assumes to be a back button when just tapped.
Maize M2 Note is now on pre-order back in China priced at about USD $129 or around Php5,800 for the 16GB version. While the 32GB option will cost at about USD $161 or near Php7,200. No specifics yet regarding roll-out outside their locale, though.
