Meizu is normally associated with quality work and low prices, but this time they are really hitting the ball out of the park. The Chinese manufacturer has just announced the Meizu M2, a phone that is to launch soon for only 599 Yuan, which would translate to about $96 USD! We know there are plenty of devices at this price point out there, but we can promise you the vast majority of them won’t even get close to offering what the M2 packs.
This new smartphone comes with that sleek, yet colorful look Meizu is so well known for. Sure, it’s made of plastic and doesn’t utilize premium materials, but remember… this thing is worth under $100. Not to mention, Meizu phones have never been infamous for bad build quality, either. These phones won’t break apart on you, and I happen to like their design and build quality. But what really matters is what you will get out of this handset.
The Meizu M2 packs a 5-inch 720p display, a Mediatek MT6735 processor, 2 GB of RAM, a 13 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front camera and a 2450 mAh battery. All things considered, this is one hell of a deal! The phone looks to compete with other lower-end handsets like the Moto E and Moto G, but they have undercut the competition significantly enough to make some of us ignore brand names.
As it usually goes with Meizu handsets, the M2 will first be released in China. This should be happening very soon. What about the rest of us? Sadly, we probably won’t see a direct release in the USA. The company has been making plans to enter the USA market for a while, but nothing has quite panned out yet. For now, all you can really do is leave a comment below, telling us how much you wish you could buy one of these. You can also try to get it imported if you like it enough!
