Leading consumer electronics company and smartphone manufacturer Meizu officially launched its new m3 smartphone at a press conference at Beijing China National Convention Center on April 25th.

The latest addition to the company’s ‘m series’ family, the Meizu m3 comes with a 5-inch HD (1280 ×720) 2.5D curved glass display and a MediaTek MT6750 octa-core processer built using a 28nm process consisting of four 1.5GHz cores and four 1.0GHz cores and providing 60% better overall performance than its predecessor.

On the back of the m3 is a 13-megapixel camera with phase detection autofocus, dual-tone flash and 1080p video capturing capability, while on the front is a 5-megapixel camera complete with FotoNation 2.0 smart beauty technology and a Face Auto-Exposure Enhancement algorithm.

To further improve usability, the m3 also inherits its predecessors’ mBack button, which integrates Android’s Back and Home buttons to simplify user experience. An upgraded 2,800mAh battery supports 64-hours of music playing, 10% more than its predecessor.

Available in five color options – white, gray, gold, pink and blue – the device measures 5.57 × 2.73 × 0.32 inches (141.5 × 69.5 × 8.3 mm), and weighs 4.5 oz (130 grams). An improved unibody molding technique is used in the manufacturing process together with a polycarbonate body that creates a texture which is both soft and durable.

“We defined the m series as ‘Quality for Young’,” said Li Nan, Meizu’s vice president of sales and marketing. “The m series is testament to the company’s dedication to developing high quality, high value and powerful smartphones for users who are looking for an affordable, attractive, easy-to-use and high specification device. But that lower price is not achieved by compromising on the quality.

“Until now, all six m series products have been very popular and with an average product price well under RMB1,000 (US$155), we are leading the development of affordable, quality smartphones in China.”

The m3 will be available from CNY 599 (USD 92.25) (16GB) to CNY799 (USD 123.05)(32GB).
