Meizu's official entry on the Indian market has long been called for by local consumers, and finally the Chinese company has listened. One of the most prominent manufacturers originating in China, Meizu had reportedly been prepping for its arrival in India for some time, as evidenced by social media messages from as early as the beginning of February.
And what would be the best pioneer to mark the company's foray into the vast Indian market, if not the capable but bargain priced Meizu m1? The smartphone boasts a 5-inch display, with a somewhat unusual 1,280 x 768 resolution for a solid 300ppi density.
The Meizu m1 is equipped with a Mediatek MT6732 chipset with its quad-core Cortex-A53 processor clocked at 1.5GHz. A single gig of RAM is all you get at the moment, although a 2GB version may see the light of day to better compete with the updated version of the Xiaomi Redmi 2. the 8GB internal storage is easily expandable via microSD.
The m1 is more than adequately equipped in the camera department as well, with a 13MP main unit and a 5MP selfia snapper. What's more the m1 also brings quad-band LTE connectivity. All that is expected to come at the reasonable price of around INR7,000 (~$110) and should be available, starting in April.
