Meizu has launched a new smartphone under its Blue Charm line-up in its home turf, called the Meizu Metal. This is the sixth Meizu branded device announced this year, following the lead of Meizu M1, M2, M2 Note, MX5 and Pro 5. The Meizu Blue Charm Metal is the first device in the 'Blue Charm' or 'M' line which is made out of metal, and also the first phone not to be powered by an Android software. The Meizu Blue Charm Metal comes with YunOS pre-installed, which is essentially a forked version of Android. Speaking of which, Meizu's Flyme UI still comes pre-installed, this phone's software is kind of a mix between the two OS'. Meizu, is one of the emerging phones that starts out of China. MediaTek's most powerful Helio X10 system chip, a fast fingerprint scanner and a large battery is also featured on the phone. The Meizu Blue Charm Metal will initially be available in China only, and while you will be able to import it via re-sellers, you will be getting the Chinese versions and you'll have to pay a slight premium on top of the official price.
The Meizu Metal is a dual-Sim supporting smartphone that runs on the Flyme 5.1 which is based on Android 5.1 Lollipop. A 2 GHz MT6795 MediaTek X10 octa-core 64-bit processor will power the upcoming device. The Meizu Metal will also be equipped with a 13-Megapixel front facing and a 5-Megapixel rear camera. The phone provides storage options of 16GB and 32GB. It also includes a 3,O5OmAh battery that is said to offer a standby time of up to 10 days. There hasn't been much details on whether the smartphone will be available with a microSD card slot to expand the memory capacity. As already mentioned, Alibaba's YunOS comes pre-installed here with Meizu's Flyme 5. This smartphone sports a physical home button up front which doubles as a fingerprint scanner, which is something we've seen in a number of Meizu's device already.
The Meizu Blue Charm Metal also acts as the launch pad for Meizu's new version of its Flyme custom Android skin. It has been upgraded to a version 5.0 and comes with some profound changes. The look has evolved with modernized icons and improved style, there also some new apps equipped on the phone. Meizu brings a new e-reading app and 'lifekit' that it is the company's official entry in to health and fitness. There is also support for crashless payments with the new fingerprint scanner.
The Helio X10 is certainly a highlight, MediaTek's best chip to date appears in phones like the HTC One M9+ and that's why its especially impressive to spot it in a phone that costs less. Its a fast chip, featuring eight Cortex A53 cores running at up to 2.0GHz and humming along with 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM.
Taking a guess on the 13-Megapixel sensor of the camera, chances are that it helps to capture the same good-looking images that you've probably seen on the Meizu M2 Note. The phone should be priced roughly around ₹11,300 for the 16GB inbuilt storage variant and ₹13,300 for the 32GB variant, the phone should go on sale starting November 2nd.
Exquisite metal design and a fast fingerprint scanner in a very affordable phone, is quite an attractive gadget to acquire.
