Meizu has announced its latest budget offering — the Meizu M6T. Despite being a budget phone, it follows the trend of dual cameras, 18:9 display, and sleek design. It’s likely to go head to head against Xiaomi Redmi 5 and Huawei’s budget Honor lineup.
The Meizu M6T sports a 5.7-inch with HD+ resolution which is acceptable for a budget phone. It is powered by last year’s MediaTek MT6750, which I think Meizu could have done slightly better. I would prefer the Snapdragon 450 or the recently announced Helio P22, but since its an affordable phone, the MT6750 should provide enough horsepower.
The main highlight of the phone has to be its camera. The phone features a dual camera setup of 13MP and 2MP. The primary 13MP camera is a Sony IMX278 sensor and the 2MP is a depth sensor. The combination should yield decent portrait images. There’s an 8MP shooter up front.
Like with any budget phones, the Meizu M6T also houses a plastic body, but it does look good with its unibody construction. It is available in three color options: Black, Red, and Gold. There’s 3300mAh battery which should be enough for a day’s usage. It runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with Meizu’s own flyme OS.
There are three memory versions for the Meizu M6T. The base 3GB/32GB version costs $125, the 4GB/32GB is priced at $155, and the 4GB/64GB carries a price tag of $171.

Meizu M6T Expected Launch Date in Nepal
Chaudhary Group is the sole authorized distributor of Meizu smartphones in Nepal. The company has been very sluggish in launching latest Meizu phones in Nepal and we expect the same with Meizu M6T.
