Mid-range Chinese phones are continuing to punch above their price class. The latest entry is the Meizu E3, a smartphone with a 6 inch, 2160 x 1080 pixel display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 octa-core processor, and 6GB of RAM.
The phone was unveiled in China today, and a model with 64GB of storage will sell for about $285 in that country, while a 128GB model is priced at about $315. As expected, the brand has now gone ahead and launched the smartphone on its home turf. The handset flaunts an 18:9 display and dual rear cameras as its highlight features. The MEIZU E3 will soon go on sale in China.
The Meizu E3 also sports a dual camera setup at the back like the Redmi Note 5. There’s a 20MP primary sensor at the back, which is paired with a 12MP secondary sensor. Both the sensors are Sony made ones. Meizu also said that the camera lens is made out of Sapphire. The secondary sensor carries telephoto lens offering 2.5X lossless zoom. The Meizu E3 also comes with a Portrait mode to capture images with bokeh effect. A 16MP front-facing camera is present on the front.
