meizu-m1-miniWere you surprised when Meizu made an announcement concerning the Meizu M1 Note (also known as Blue Charm in other circles) earlier this year? That happened to be a Full HD, octa-core powered smartphone that was certainly friendly to those who are running on a tight budget – retailing for a mere $160 (after conversion for an unlocked handset) over in China In fact, there seems to be a smaller version – and dare we say, cheaper too, of the M1 Note that will be announced later this month, and speculation points to it being called the Meizu M1 Note Mini.

The alleged Meizu M1 Note Mini is said to come with a 5” display (in all probability a 720 x 1280 resolution screen), LTE connectivity, and a 64-bit processor that hails from the folks over at MediaTek. Apart from that, it should cost somewhere in the region of $100 thereabouts, which could very well make this heat things up between Meizu and their competitor, Xiaomi’s Redmi 2, as the latter also happens to be a 64-bit handset. The Meizu M1 Note Mini, should it materialize, will also run on the Flyme OS which is Meizu’s very own interpretation of Android.

Looks like we will just have to be patient and wait for the end of the month event to play things out.
