Meizu has the tendency to design their phones similar if not exactly like other phones, and their new M3E is no exception. This thing looks exactly like the iPhone 6s. Well, at least on the front…

If you flip the phone over, you’ll be reminded that this thing is basically an iPhone clone, however it also shares a similar look with HTC’s design language. So if you consider this alongside the pill shaped home button, the M3E is essentially the equivalent of what would happen if the HTC 10 and the iPhone 6s had a baby.

Yeah, that’s accurate.

Anyway, getting back to the topic at hand, the M3E sports a sandblasted metal body, a 5.5-inch 1080p IPS LCD display with a pixel density of 403, a MediaTek Helio P10 octa-core processor paired with a Mali-T860 GPU, a relatively hefty 3GB of RAM, 32GB of on-boaard storage with is expandable via a microSD card, a 13MP rear camera with an f/2.2 aperture, a 5MP front camera with an f/2.0 aperture, an mTouch 2.1 fingerprint sensor, dual SIM card slots, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, a 3100mAh battery, a microUSB port, mCharge quick charging technology, and gray, silver, rose gold, gold, and blue color options. All in all, if you’re looking for a good, cheap alternative to an iPhone 6s and like Android, you should probably pick this puppy up.

Hold on, I should clear something up. The M3E doesn’t just run Android. It runs YunOS. And if you remember from years past, it’s been discovered that this is actually an Android fork. Plus, its culprit to various phone cancellations, developers getting in trouble, and other security problems that Google had to resolve themselves. Usually, Meizu loads their FlymeOS software on their phones, however it looks like the company is making a change. I’m not sure how the world will respond to this, but it should be interesting.

The M3E will launch in China soon and cost just CNY 1299 (about $195). This is a very low price for a phone in it’s category, but it’s what we’ve come to expect from Chinese companies nowadays.

If we obtain any new information, we’ll let you know.
