Meizu today introduced its M3 MAX smartphone at a product launch event in Beijing. The impressive device packs great features and will be offered at a mid-range price. Designed for young business elites, key features of the M3 MAX are:
- 6-inch Full HD Display
- 4100mAh battery and 24W fast charging
- 3G RAM, 64G ROM and 128G TF extension card
- Flyme business functions: fingerprint encryption, call note, multi-window mode and guest mode
Meizu M3 MAX features a 6-inch LTPS (Low Temperature Poly-silicon) 2.5D touch screen with 1080p resolution. An eye protection mode has been developed to make nighttime reading more comfortable.
M3 MAX is also powered with a 4100mAn (typ.) battery and mCharge fast charging technology. With the upgraded 24W charging power, M3 MAX can be charged to 45% capacity in about half an hour. The mCharge technology can also automatically regulate the charging state according to body temperature, battery voltage, usage scenario and other data to ensure safe and fast charging.
M3 MAX is equipped with 3GB RAM and 64GB ROM. The standard 64GB eMMC 5.1 flash memory can store more movies, music and photos. It can also reduce the loading time of application data.
The fingerprint payment function of the M3 MAX supports Alipay and WeChat, the two leading Chinese online payment platforms. Meanwhile, the cipher code is stored in an encrypted torage area and bound up with the cell phone processor. Even violent dismantling cannot read the encrypted data, thus providing chip-level protection. The guest mode of M3 MAX allows users to quickly switch to a separate guest profile that doesn't have any personal data. This provides a particularly effective way of letting someone else use the phone for a while. A multi-window mode is a feature that enables multiple activities on screen at the same time.
M3 MAX also comes with an 8-core 64-bit processor clocked at 1.8GHz and ARM's 64-bit flagship GPU Mali-T860. Its fingerprint recognition algorithm unlocks the device in just 0.2 seconds and the abrasion resistance of the surface material ensures touch time exceeding 10 million. Its 13MP rear camera uses the SONY IMX258 sensor, PDAF phase focusing and 0.2S ultra-speed focusing, while the front camera utilizes a combination of a 5MP sensor, FotoNation 2.0 smart beauty technology and Face Auto-Exposure Enhancement algorithm.
The M3 MAX is available in gray, silver, gold, rose gold and blue with published price of $255 for 3GB RAM, 64GB ROM configuration.
