By surprise, and without making a sound, the Chinese company Meizu has presented today a new member of its mid-range segment, the Meizu E3. It is a terminal that follows the lines of the Meizu M6s, presented in the middle of last January, with improved specifications that drive it directly to the top of the mid-range, to fight face to face with giants like the Redmi Note 5 Pro.
Once again, Meizu has decided to leave MediaTek aside and bet on Qualcomm , in addition to getting on the trolley of the “all screen” fronts and the double camera systems. Next we take a look at all specifications and details of this new phone just arrived from Asia.
Meizu is one of the few companies that, practically since its inception, has remained faithful to the same style of design, adapting and evolving as it marked the industry, but without neglecting the aspects that set them apart from the rest. And in this case it was not going to be less.
The E3 boasts a anodized aluminum body , which hides well the plastic lines that house the antennas in its back, and that dispenses with the fingerprint reader both in the front and in the back. The fingerprint biometric sensor, however, has not been eliminated, but instead moves to a side , a position that seems destined to disappear sooner or later, according to smartphones, they are getting thinner and more curved.
Its front part is occupied mainly by a Full HD + 5.99 inch IPS panel , surrounded by small margins, which only leave room for the front sensors and the loudspeaker. Due to the lack of physical button, Meizu goes back to betting on the mBack virtual button on screen , compatible with different gestures that we saw in more detail at the time of the launch of the Meizu M6S.
We travel to its interior, and we find the recent Snapdragon 636 processor from Qualcomm , released next to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro , with 14 nanometers and eight cores that generate a maximum frequency of 1.8 GHz. El_SoC_ is well accompanied by 6 GB of LPDDR4x and 64 GB or 128 GB RAM of storage expandable through microSD. As for battery, with 3,360 mAh and a new batch processor as efficient as the Snapdragon 636, we expect an excellent result. In addition, when loading the terminal we enjoyed a 20W new technology owned by Meizu , which will probably be similar to the Dash Charge system used by OnePlus.
On a photographic level the Meizu E3 also promises, and a lot. In his back we find two cameras arranged vertically, the first of 12 megapixels Sony IMX362 f / 1.9 with Dual Pixel technology, and high school is a TV 20 megapixel Sony IMX350 f.2 / 6 with PDAF. Both are accompanied by a dual-tone flash, and in conjunction allow capture with unfocused background-the famous portrait mode, or get images magnified up to 2.5X without losing quality. In the meantime, on the front we have a single 8 megapixel f / 2.0 sensor.

But not everything was going to be so beautiful. The marketing leader of Meizu, Ard Boudeling, has confirmed through his Twitter account that this terminal will not leave the Chinese market, but that the intention of the company is to expand the availability of the M6s.
The Meizu E3, initially branded ‘M6E’ internationally, will only be released in China.
Our focus is on bringing the M6s to more markets around the world.

Finally, and as a curiosity, it is worth mentioning that there will be a third version of the Meizu E3. It will be a limited edition, called Meizu E3 J-20 Edition referring to the J-20 fighter plane. Its price is $ 395, and will include a personalized case, a memory card and a special tool for removing the SIM card.
