Mysterious Meizu M1E Spotted In Live Shots

A mysterious Meizu device surfaced online in what appear to be a few quite believable stills. The unit in question even seems to be in working order and by the looks of things bears either the M1E moniker or A680M model name. Actually, both might be true, since the former is being reported from the OS, while the latter looks like a full model number and is written on the back.

Upon first inspection the phone does see quite familiar and could easily be mistaken for the recently-released Meizu m3s. But while it is a fact that the unit in question bears the all too familiar Meizu design language, a closer inspection definitely proves it is a newcomer to the scene.

As already mentioned, the back appears very familiar and with a round capturing camera and round flash underneath reminds of the MX6, as well as the Pro 6. However, those utilize a curvier antenna design. Other models like the m3 note and the Pro 5 do appear to have the correct antenna lines, but both utilize an elongated oval flash. The clean front side is of small extra assist and as already mentioned, everything points to the m3s. However the M1E has its 3.5mm audio jack on the bottom, rather than the top frame.

Plus, specs don't exactly match up either. One of the shots at hand shows the recent smartphone uses the Mediatek MT 6755 SoC, also known as the Helio P10. It also reveals a resolution of 1080p on what subjectively looks like a 5.5-inch panel and 3GB of RAM. Another shot in the collection shows that the unit is running Flyme Operating System (OS) 5.2.1, which appears to be based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. The still also offers a fine see at what is likely Meizu's standard mTouch home button - the one that combines a fingerprint reader and tapping gestures.
