Meizu has officially unveiled its brand new affordable smartphone, the Metal. While it may have a rather peculiar name, the Meizu Metal features – as its name suggests – a metal construction, a capable processor, and a fingerprint sensor from only 1,099 Chinese yuan (about RM740).
At this price point, the Meizu Metal is definitely the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2‘s competitor. While both feature the very same MediaTek Helio X10 octa-core processor, the Redmi Note 2 lacks a fingerprint sensor and a premium construction. Of course, this also means the Metal is slightly pricier at 1,099 yuan; the Redmi Note 2 starts from only 799 yuan (around RM540).
Other specifications of the Meizu Metal include a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 LTPS LCD display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, and a generous 3,140mAh battery. In the camera department, the Metal has a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing shooter. Looking at these specifications, the Metal is definitely one of the best value for money Android devices.
At the time of writing, the Meizu Metal is only available in China. It will retail at 1,099 yuan (about RM740) and 1,299 yuan (approximately RM875) for the 16GB and 32GB models respectively. It will be officially released in China on the 2nd of November 2015.
