Meizu’s M series of handsets come with midrange specifications. This lineup is known for colorful, vivid smartphones made of plastic/polycarbonate materials. The standout point, however, is the hardware configurations, even though the device is dirt-cheap. The new Meizu M2, also referred as Charm Blue 2, is gearing up for release and hence, it made a fleeting visit to the AnTuTu benchmark testing site.

Here is a comparison of specifications between the M2 and the M1.

The Meizu M2 is the successor of the Meizu M1 and the bigger Meizu M1 Note, just released in January 2015. The company is not waiting for the usual yearly cycle, so this handset will be released on July 29. The Meizu M2 Note smartphone has already been released, notes Phone Arena.

The Meizu M2 will come with a 5.0-inch display, packed with 720 x 1,280 pixel screen resolution. The predecessor Meizu M1 also comes with the same display configuration. The M2 will be powered by a 64-bit (MediaTek 6735) chip, in combination with an octa-core processor and backed by a good 2 GB of RAM. The graphics will be controlled by a Mali-T720 GPU. The Meizu M1, on the other hand, comes powered by a 64-bit 1.5 GHz MediaTek 6732 SoC and backed by just 1 GB of RAM.

The Meizu M2 will come equipped with 16 GB of in-built storage capacity and microSD card support for further expansion. Meanwhile, the Meizu M1 offers only 8 GB of expandable storage capacity. Plus, Phone Arena says, the device will carry a brilliant 13 MP primary camera unit, in addition to a generous 5 MP front-facing shooter for selfies, similar to the predecessor. The entire configuration will be held together and powered by a solid 2,700 mAh battery unit, whereas the M1 settles for a battery capacity of 2,500 mAh.

Apart from the standard connectivity options, the M2 will also support 4G LTE. Furthermore, the device has dual-SIM slots. It will set the buyers back by an equivalent of $112. Speaking of AnTuTu benchmark score, the Meizu M2 amassed 28,047 points, whereas the Meizu M2 Note tallied 3,500 points more than the M2. Nonetheless, readers should note that, Meizu has not confirmed the M2 specifications or price thus far.
