MEIZU, the Chinese smartphone maker, recently grabbed everyone’s attention with the launch of its Zero smartphone, which comes with a completely holeless design. However, the MEIZU Zero is far from becoming a reality. In the meantime, the brand has already started working on its next smartphone. The next offering from the company is expected to be called the M9 Note, and it will compete directly against Xiaomi’s latest, the Redmi Note 7.
First spotted on the Chinese social networking platform Weibo, Meizu founder Huang Zhang has also confirmed this info. According to the report, the upcoming MEIZU M9 Note will come with the 11nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 SoC, which will be backed by the Adreno 612 GPU. In the imaging department, the handset is speculated to come with a dual rear camera setup that comprises the 48-megapixel Samsung GM1 sensor as the primary shooter.
The Samsung GM1 is a 1/2-inch lens with 0.8µm pixel size. The smartphone will use 4-in-1 pixel binning, which means 12-megapixels images being interpolated to 48-megapixel pictures. The smartphone is also tipped to be powered by a 4,000mAh battery. Unfortunately, no other details regarding the smartphone are known at the moment.
Moving further, the leak suggests that the price of MEIZU M9 Note will start from 1,000 Yuan (around Rs 10,500). This means that the smartphone will go up directly against Xiaomi’s latest handset in the Redmi Note series and other budget-centric offerings.
