The Meizu M1 has went up for sale for the second time in China, and just like the first sale, 100,000 units of the smartphone were sold out in under a minute. Considering that the M1 retails at only 699 Yuan (about RM400), this doesn’t come as much of a surprise.
However, it is a very impressive feat. Not only was Meizu able to stock up as many as 100,000 units of the M1, but to sell all of them in under a minute is quite an achievement. To add to that, this is also the second time it has received such a favourable reception from the public.
Even though the M1 retails at only 699 Yuan, the specifications are respectable. It has a 5-inch 1280 x 768 display with a pixel density of 300ppi, which is plenty sharp. Other than that, it is powered by a Mediatek MT6732 1.5GHz quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory that is expandable with a microSD card up to 128GB.
Other hardware include 13MP rear and 5MP front cameras, a 2500mAh battery, Android 4.4.4 KitKat, and LTE connectivity, which is quite a surprise considering how affordable this phone is. With an affordable price tag and a capable hardware to match, it’s not hard to see why it’s so popular.
At this rate, Meizu could be one manufacturer to look out for, especially with the recent investment of Alibaba in the Chinese company.
