The Meizu E3 was officially launched in China yesterday. Though the smartphone is jam-packed with some nice specs and features, but Meizu tried its best to keep the price low. In case you are yet to get proper information about the phone I am talking about, set your eyes on the full details of the Meizu E3 which reveals its specifications, price, pre-oder details and release date.
Meizu E3 Features
The Meizu E3 sports a 5.99 inch IPS LCD display having 1080 x 2160 pixel resolution. The phone runs on the Snapdragon 636 chipset with 8x Kryo 260 cores abd Adreno 509 GPU. The chipset is paired with a whooping 6GB RAM for enhanced performance, and 128GB internal storage which is expandable via the use of microSD card.
The Meizu E3 features a dual-camera setup on its rear panel, that keeps it on the right track as a phone with much higher standing. The camera modules are protected by a piece of sapphire glass and the main shooter is a 12MP Sony IMX362 (f/2.55, 1.4µm) sensor behind f/1.9 lens with Dual-Pixel autofocus. The secondary telecam unit has a 20MP Sony IMX350 (1/2.8″, 1.0µm) imager behind f/2.6 lens with PDAF. It also has a dual-tone flash. The dual-camera on the back of the Meizu E3 is capable of portrait mode with background blur and promise up to 2.5x lossless zoom. The phone has an 8MP f/2.0 camera on the front for taking selfies.

Looking at the design, the Meizu E3 has its internals wrapped in a metal body, and its fingerprint sensor is placed on its right side. The manufacturer said the sensor is always on and unlocks the phone in just 0.2 seconds.
The Meizu E3 came with a 3300mAh non-removable battery that has a 20W fast charging via a new custom cable and adapter. The company advertises the charging as “cold”, and we guess this is a technology similar to the 5V/4A VOOC/Dash Charge. Meizu E3 runs on Flyme OS 7 with Android 7.1.2 serving as a core beneath the launcher.
