The leading smartphone manufacturer Meizu officially launched its new m3s smartphone today at a press event in China. Unlike the Meizu m3 that was launched back in April, the brand-new Meizu m3s now comes in a well polished metallic body, has a near-perfect arc for giving the Meizu m3 note a better feel. Let’s get into full details.
Specs-wise, the latest addition to the company’s m series family, the Meizu m3s comes with a 5-inch HD (1280×720 pixels) 2.5D curved glass display and a 1.5GHz MediaTek MT6750 Octa-core processor coupled with Mali-T860 GPU. The Meizu m3s also has a front-mounted fingerprint sensor (mTouch 2.1) embedded in the home button that lets you unlock the device in 0.2 seconds.

On the back of the Meizu m3s is a 13-megapixel f/2.2 camera with phase detection autofocus and dual-tone LED flash, while on the front is a 5-megapixel f/2.0 shooter complete with FotoNation 2.0 smart beauty technology and a Face Auto-Exposure Enhancement algorithm. Other specs include 2GB RAM + 16 GB ROM or 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM memory options, microSD support for adding more storage, Hybrid Dual SIM slot, 4G VoLTE connectivity and a 3020mAh battery to keep everything up and running. Meizu m3s runs on the Flyme OS 5.1, which is based on the Android 5.1 Lollipop.
Price & Availability:
The smartphone is available in Silver, Grey, Gold and Pink color options, but only in China for now. The standard 16GB version with 2GB RAM is priced at 699 Yuan (US $106), while the higher-capacity 32GB model along with 3GB RAM costs 899 yuan (US $136). The handset is now available for pre-order on Meizu’s online store, set to start shipping on June 17.
The price seems quite competitive for the specs that the Meizu m3s brings to the table, but there are already plenty of affordable models out there in the same region.
