It looks like Meizu already has a follow up to its 5.5-inch Meizu M1 Note released last month. Taking the lead from fellow Chinese device makers Oppo and Xiaomi, Meizu is planning to conduct a press conference where it will reportedly unveil the new Meizu M1 Mini.
Meizu to hold a press conference next week
This news comes directly from the company?s official Weibo page and published in this Meizu.cn thread . In their post, the smartphone manufacturer announces that a press conference will be held at the Beijing National Convention Center on January 28. It didn?t say much but it?s apparently being advertised using the tagline ?Connected? which is written using fonts that showcase the various colors of the M1 Note announced earlier (see below). Moreover, a Meizu watcher site reported that this is indeed the event where the company will launch the said M1 Mini model.
Meizu M1 Mini specs – what we can expect
When the M1 Note was announced back in December, we learned that it is a budget smartphone with a large 5.5-inch display, 13MP rear camera, and equipped with an octa-core Mediatek chipset. Now, Meizu is apparently trying to capture the reception of price-conscious consumers by backing it up with a smaller version, the Meizu M1 Mini.
The unannounced compact handset will reportedly be furnished with a smaller 5-inch screen but will still be powered by a 64-bit MediaTek processor. Since this is seen as the smaller incarnation of the M1 Note, we can expect that it follow its big brother?s iPhone 5C-like color variants.
We don?t have to wait very long to confirm these rumored details as the launch will be held a week from now. GSM Arena speculates that the Meizu M1 Mini will be the company?s handset that will take on Xiaomi?s similarly specced Redmi 2 and will come with an approximate price of $100.
