- Meizu has listed the Meizu M6T on its website in China.
- It is a budget device with a dual rear-camera.
- There are three versions available for reservation with differing amounts of RAM and storage.
Meizu has officially unveiled the Meizu M6T, the latest in the M6 range that also includes the M6 Note, M6, and the M6S. A listing on Meizu’s website shows it to be a budget device with some pretty impressive sounding features, but you’ll only be able to get your hands on one in China.
There are three versions of the phone available for reservation. The base model comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage and costs 799 yuan (around $124.23). If you want a little more power, there is a 4GB RAM plus 32GB storage version available for 999 yuan (around $155.33), and a 4GB RAM plus 64GB storage version for 1099 yuan (around $170).
The device’s standout feature, especially considering its price, is that it has a dual rear camera. This consists of a 13MP sensor with f/2.2 aperture and a 2MP sensor with f/2.4 aperture. Meizu says that these cameras let the phone take portrait pictures with the ever-popular bokeh effect. The camera on the front is 8MP with an f/2.0 aperture.
The Meizu M6T is available in three colors: black, grey, and, for those that want to stand out a bit more, red. The device has bezels but they aren’t too big meaning the phone still looks relatively modern.
The device sports a 5.7-inch HD Plus screen and is powered by a MediaTek 6750 chipset backed by a 3,300mAh battery. It also has a fingerprint scanner that is nicely placed just below the camera on the back. Finally, there is a headphone jack, Micro USB port, and an SD card slot.
The device’s features and price point make it a competitive package. The Honor 7A costs the same in China and also comes with dual-cameras, although the most basic version only has 2GB RAM. Meanwhile, the Redmi 5 is similarly priced but doesn’t have a dual-camera.
All in all, the Meizu M6T seems like a pretty good deal. Unfortunately, if you want to take advantage of this, at the moment at least, you’ll have to live in China.
