The Meizu M2 Note, also known as the Meizu Blue Charm Note 2, has been announced. It follows the Meizu M1 Note, which was released in December.

According to Phone Arena, the Meizu M2 Note comes with a physical home button below the display instead of the round capacitive button used in other Meizu smartphones. Gizmo China’s post puts the device's AnTuTu benchmark score at 31,638. The older M1 Note scored 40,000.

The Meizu M2 Note is powered by the MediaTek MT6573 chipset, which houses an octa-core processor that can clock a processing speed of up to 1.3 GHz. The MediaTek SoC is supported by 2 GB of RAM.

The handset features a 5.5-inch Sharp IGZO IPS LCD screen that supports full HD resolution. The display has pixel density of 401 ppi. The Meizu M2 Note is available in two storage options, 16 GB and 32 GB. Both variants come with support for a microSD card.

The Meizu M2 Note is 8.7 mm thick and weighs 149 grams (5.25 ounces). It measures 150.9 by 75.2 mm (5.9 by 2.9 inches). The back of the device has a 13 MP camera with dual-LED flash and on the front there is a 5 MP selfie camera. The device runs on the Android 5.0 Lollipop OS and is overlaid with Fly Me Away skin. It has a 3,100 mAh battery and 4G LTE connectivity.

The Meizu Blue Charm Note 2 is available for preorder in China. It will be available at retail stores beginning June 12.  The 16 GB version is priced at 799 yuan (around $130); the 32 GB variant is available for 999 yuan (about $160).
