Meizu M3 Note preview – 5.5″ Full HD display, 8-core Helio P10 and 4100mAh battery

It was a couple of days ago that we received for testing a very intriguing smartphone manufactured by Meizu – the M3 Note. Before putting it to our tests, we decided to present to you a short preview of its specs.

If you are interested in Meizu M3 Note, you can check its price and availability here:

Aluminum design and 5.5-inch Full HD display


Meizu M3 Note’s design is characterized by an aluminum unibody construction which looks and feels stylish. It is perfectly complemented by a slightly curved 2.5D screen. M3 Note has a profile thickness of only 8.2 mm, while it weighs 163 grams. Additionally, the phone has two SIM card slots.

This smartphone has a 5.5-inch screen which ensures big enough surface for operation. You will also be quite happy with the image detail because its resolution is Full HD, which translates into a pixel pitch of 403 ppi. The manufacturer has also employed an LTPS IPS technology for quality colors and perfect viewing angles. What’s more the display is protected against scratches with the help of a Dinorex T2X-1 glass.

8-core Helio P10 processor and a 13MP camera

zWhat makes a very good impression in this mid-range device is the available Helio P10 mobile CPU, which has eight Cortex-A53 cores, ticking at 2.00 GHz. This is one of the current MediaTek chips which achieves balance between high performance and low energy consumption. As far as internal storage is concerned, it is 16 GB but you can use up to a 256GB memory card to expand.

Furthermore, M3 Note’s main camera is 13MP and has a max aperture of f/2.2, dual LED flash, improved autofocus and a 5-element lens. Also available is the TrueBright ISP and the special Meizu technology for noise reduction. We must mention that the camera is capable of Full HD video recording. On the front you are presented with a 5MP camera with f/2.0 aperture.

4100mAh battery and fingerprint scanner

21We are rather impressed by the available big battery. Its capacity is 4100 mAh and the good thing is that this has not increased the profile thickness. Meizu claims that the phone’s battery can provide up to 12 hours of constant mixed operation, and more than two days of normal usage. Some of the factors which facilitate the decent durability are the less demanding processor and the optimized UI.

Another merit of Meizu m3 note is its fingerprint scanner, located right below the display. It can unlock your device in 0.2 seconds, and also offers a 360-degree angle of recognition. You can also record five of your fingers’ fingerprints.
