GFXBench Scores For Upcoming Meizu M1 Note Mini Surface

By 08:51 Fri, 23 Jul 2021 Comments

As Meizu fans surely remember the company scheduled a conference for January 28 and teased an upcoming recent device announcement at the venue. From what we have gathered so far the Chinese manufacturer will probably unveil the Meizu M1 Note Mini, a smaller device meant to complement the Meizu m1 note.

A lot rumors have been circulating around the expected budacquire handset and first and foremost the naming convention is not clear. The recent smartphone could be dubbed the Meizu m1 note mini, or simply m1 mini and the GFXBench specs sheet that surfaced today lists a lot of hardware details but sadly no name.

A quick glance reveals that the phone is powered by an quad-core MediaTek MT6732 SoC with Cortex A53 cores clocked at 1.5 GHz. Random-Access Memory (RAM) in the unit should be 1GB and 8GB ROM. Sensors are pretty much standard and include accelerometer, Bluetooth, compass, gyroscope, GPS, light sensor, pedometer, proximity and no NFC support. No information is available on the capturing camera setup, though, but a fine guess might be 8MP main shooter and 5MP front.

The classy screen is where the debate really takes off. If we assume that the m1 note mini and m1 mini are in fact the same device then it is still very much unclear how gigantic the display will be. GFXBench lists the panel as being 4.7-inch with a resolution of 1280 x 768 pixels, which is in tune with some of the rumors. Then again other sources and even a leaked photo point towards a 5-inch display.

There is of course the possibility that Meizu is actually planning to unveil two devices and both sources are correct, but we can't be certain until tomorrow's event takes place to hopefully clear the smoke. Another gigantic point of dispute is the Operating System (OS) that will power the recent smartphone. The screenshot at hand says Android 4.4.4, which is expected, but other sources have speculated that Meizu might offer the M1 mini with a choice of platforms, including Flyme OS, the in-houtilize flavor of Android, YunOS, developed in part by Aliexpress and even Ubuntu.

The recent device is most likely intended to hold on the likes of Xiaomi Hongmi 2, also known as the Redmi 2, primarily in its home market, with an asking price of around $100. This is a fine strategic step on Meizu's part, but seeing how Xiaomi intends to upgrade the Redmi 2, with 2GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) and 16GB onboard storage Meizu might have to push harder to create its budget-oriented phone desirable. The Operating System (OS) choice could potentially do the trick and hopefully we will hear more about it during the "Connected" event tomorrow. So be sure to check back in for an update after the conference.
