Meizu has officially set the launch date for the Meizu E3!
After a slight delay, the wait is over! Meizu has officially set the launch date for the Meizu E3! It looks loke the silence of last year was nothing more but the void before the storm! Following their latest M6S. launched February, the device will be lauched March 21st.
There are lots of things we know about the E3. We know it will come with a 5.99 inch 18:9 ratio display. We also know it will carry a vertically placed 20 and 12 MP camera on the back and a 16 MP frontcamera. From the looks of the leaked pictures it seems to use the same side mounted fingerprint scanner like the M6S.
It will be available in a 32, 64 and 128GB ROM version and according to TENAA, the handset measures 156.8 x 75 x 7.6mm and it weighs 163 grams. It appears to be sporting a full metallic chassis. The launch invitation of the Meizu E3 suggests that it will be coming in a camera-centric and gaming focused edition.
We also know the processor used will be an It will be coming in RAM options like 4 GB and 6 GB. Now the brand and type of processor is still leading to heavy speculation. And since Meizu has used Snapdragon, Samsung and MediaTek chipsets in their past three models, who can say? Will it be the answer to the Xiaomi Note 5 and will it come with a Snapdragon 636 or 660? That first would or could fit the 1.8 GHz description. Some say it will be the Helio P60 or even the not yet confirmed Helio P70, but that makes little sense. Some even spoke of MediaTeks Helio P38.
And, since everybody seems to be wildly speculating, I will add my two cents too. Logic dictates that it will be either the Helio P40 or.. since there seems to be a Meizu counterpart to every Xiaomi: The Snapdragon 636. Personally I would slightly prefer the Snapdragon, but having used Meizu’s with MediaTek chipsets as well as Snapdragon I honestly can say, you will hardly notice it. Flyme OS is running smoothly and flawless on either. So no matter what they will choose: We’re ready to meet the Meizu E3! Are you?
