Check out the first Meizu M6 Note camera samples

Meizu has unveiled a new entry-level smartphone featuring dual cameras, along with a followup to one of our favorite pairs of Bluetooth earbuds.

The M6 Note represents a couple of firsts for the Chinese brand: it's the first Meizu phone to be released internationally with a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and it's the first to sport a dual-lens camera.

For the average consumer, the Meizu M6 Note should easily meet their requirement without having to be too hard on their wallet.

The 4GB RAM/ 64GB Storage model, on the other hand, will be on sale at a price of CNY 1,699 making it the most expensive of all the three variants of the Meizu M6 Note handset.

The Meizu M6 Note comes with a metal unibody and features a 5.5-inch full HD (1920 x 1080) IPS 2.5D curved display.

The device has a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 625, which includes eight cores ARM Cortex-A53 (up to 2.0 GHz), graphics accelerator Adreno 506 and cellular modem LTE X9. The device is available in Black, Blue and Gold colors.

It can however be a regional thorn in the side of the somewhat overpriced and underpowered Galaxy J family, starting at the ultra-affordable equivalent of around $165 with 3GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. On the storage front, the device offers 64GB of onboard storage which is further expandable via the microSD card slot. It comes with Android 7.1.2 (Nougat) with Flyme OS 6.

It uses multi-frame noise reduction and HDR algorithms from ArcSoft. The front camera of the phone is 16 megapixel which is good on the front. Connectivity options of the phone include 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, and Global Positioning System.

Additionally, the device would get a front-mounted fingerprint scanner, OTG support, Android Nougat based Meizu Flyme OSout of the box.
