In a mega event in Beijing, Meizu today announced the M2 Note, the successor of the M1 Note launched last year. In terms of specifications and hardware, the M2 Note is not much of a change though.
Made from a polycarbonate unibody, the M2 note is available in white, blue, gray and pink colors. Powered by a 1.3GHz 64-bit Octa-Core MediaTek MT6753 processor with eight Cortex-A53 64-bit CPUs and Mali-T720 GPU, the device runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop with the company's Flyme OS on top. A 5.5-inch full HD display with a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera rounds off the specifications.
One of the highlights of the m2 note, is the new mBack home button which features an alloy ring. The button changes the paradigm from using three keys for navigating through the Android operating system, and is receptive to both physical and mechanical touch.
