A 48-megapixel budget smartphone with Snapdragon 675 is coming: It’s not Redmi Note 7 Pro

first_imgChinese smartphone manufacturers started on a high note last year by bringing several new technologies and concepts to the market. Vivo grabbed the most attention with its Apex concept, which later conceptualized into the Nex. The in-display fingerprint sensor was also generalized. Huawei and Xiaomi popularized the slider display technology. Meizu unveiled a seamless smartphone yesterday with all the latest wireless technologies incorporated. A 48-megapixel camera is now also a feature that’s made common for a budget smartphone. Xiaomi introduced it with the Redmi Note 7 and Meizu will follow up with its next product.While the rest of the world is still catching up with the Meizu Zero concept smartphone, the company is readying a new budget handset that will intensify the competition in the sub-Rs 15,000 segment. The device is speculated to be called the Meizu M9 Note and could be sold at an extremely low price of $147 (approximately Rs 10,000). As the name suggests, the device is expected to take it up against Redmi’s Note series of smartphones.However, it won’t be just another run-of-the-mill product. The M9 Note will feature a 48-megapixel camera for the rear. This will make the M9 Note join the Redmi Note 7 as one of the few phones in the world to sport a 48-megapixel camera.Like the Redmi Note 7, the M9 Note is rumoured to rely on the same Samsung GM1 sensor that Xiaomi is using for the Redmi Note 7. The camera will have a big ½-inch sensor and will rely on Pixel Binning technology to gather more light. It is said that the camera will shoot images in 12-megapixel mode by default utilizing the Pixel Binning technology. Users will need to manually switch to the 48-megapixel mode for clicking higher-resolution pictures from the camera.advertisementHowever, the M9 Note could have another deadly trick up its sleeves. Meizu is reportedly using Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 675 chipset for the device. This Snapdragon 675 uses extremely powerful Cortex-A76-based custom Kryo cores for enhanced performance. Compared to the Snapdragon 670, it gains massively in terms of raw performance. The chip also supports triple camera setup – that indicates another possibility of the device sporting a triple camera setup.At the moment, the Meizu M9 Note isn’t official. However, if the rumours are anything to go by, the M9 Note will end up as a very powerful smartphone. If Meizu manages to keep the price under Rs 15,000, then the M9 Note will give a tough competition to the Redmi Note 7.ALSO READ | Meizu unveils flagship 16th, M6T and C9 smartphones in IndiaALSO READ | Meizu Zero is the world’s first holeless smartphone ALSO READ | Meizu 16th Quick Review: An Android flagship that puts style upfrontlast_img
