Meizu M3E is the first device in the new E series

Meizu has taken to its official twitter account to spill the beans on a new device that will slot into the E range of devices that were just announced. The new smartphone is called the Meizu M3E and it packs a large 3100 mAh internal battery. The smartphone has 32GB of internal storage, which isn't much so we are hoping that it has a memory card slot for expansion.

Considering most modern devices do, we assume so at this point. The chip under the hood of the M3E is an octa-core of unspecified make and speed (at least Meizu didn't offer those details) paired up with 3GB of RAM. The rear camera has an f/2.2 aperture and promises to focus in 0.2 seconds. That camera has 13MP resolution and uses a Sony IMX258 sensor.

It appears that Meizu wants to woo folks who like to take pictures with their smartphones. An mTouch fingerprint scanner is integrated for security needs. The 5.5-inch full HD resolution screen uses IPS technology and has 450 nits brightness rating. That should make it easy to see in direct sunlight.

Color options for the smartphone include rose gold and a cool blue color. Luckily, some other coverage at the official launch of the smartphone has offered up some details on the processor under the hood. That unnamed octa-core processor is a 1.8GHz MediaTek Helio P10. The front camera of the smartphone is a 5MP unit and the battery supports 18W fast charge. The OS running the show is called YunOS and the smartphone will support 4G+ networks and VoLTE. The body of the device is all metal which should mean a decent feel for the phone.
