Connectivity options include dual SIM (4G+ 2G).
Even though the pricing hasn't been revealed, the M1 Note looks to be another high spec'd budget smartphone. Meizu is the latest entrant to an already crowded Indian smartphone market. The company seems to have also followed the latest trend of launching a high spec'd smartphone at a competitive price point. Also, it has opted for the online-exclusive, except for the flash sales. The Indian market is already awash with budget smartphones with high end specifications. Companies such as Motorola, Asus Micromax Xiaomi and Lenovo have gone aggressive on the Indian market. Meizu will be facing a very strong competition from all these established players in the country.
