12 months ago

Chinese mobile brand Meizu mobile announced E2 (M2E) this afternoon. To be available in Black, Moonlight Silver and Champagne Gold, the Meizu E2 comes with a 5.5-inch, 1920×1080 FHD resolution screen and is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio P20 chipset with 3GB + 32GB and 4GB + 64GB. It runs on Flyme OS 6.0 powered by YunOS.

Meizu E2 has a 13-megapixel rear camera with 4-LED dual-tone flash arranged in the antenna bands that promises bright and clear images even in poor lighting conditions. It also has an 8-megapixel front-facing camera.

The major design change in the Meizu E2 is in the LED flash. It is the first of its kind and Meizu deserves some praise for it. Though it is sad that it might not get the recognition it deserves until one of the major manufacturers outside China copies it.

It has a mTouch fingerprint sensor embedded into the home button that can unlock the phone in just 0.2 seconds and can also be used for secure payments. It has unibody metal design and a 3400mAh built-in battery with support for fast charging that lets you charge the phone up to 40% in just 30 minutes.

The 3GB RAM version of the E2 will sell for ¥1299 (∼$189) and the 4GB version will be priced at ¥1599 (∼$232). Pre-orders will begin today before going on sale on the 29th of April at Jingdong, Meizu’s online store, Lynx, Suning and Tesco. The Hi Case will sell for ¥79 (∼$11.50).
