Announcement. Meizu 魅 蓝 10 (Blue Charm 10) - an inexpensive smartphone without a fingerprint scanner for the Chinese market

Meizu has been spoiling us latelynew products oh how infrequent. But here's a novelty ... To be honest, you always expect something more from a company with such a resounding name. But for now we have to be content with what they give.

About the name.The novelty is presented in China and is focused exclusively on the local market. Therefore, her name in the original is written in hieroglyphs - Meizu 魅 蓝 10. These hieroglyphs are translated by automatic translators as “Charm Blue”. The vast majority of news sites, as far as I can see, decided to call the device the Meizu Blue Charm 10. However, there are a couple of other options - Meizu Meilan 10 and Meizu mBlu 10. So don't be alarmed. This is not a crowd of relatives, it is all the same apparatus.

The smartphone is very humble.The chipset is just a four-core "tiger" Unisoc Tiger T310. At best, AnTuTu will have 150 thousand points. With memory, everything is fine. 4 or 6 GB of RAM, 64 or 128 GB of storage. There is support for memory cards. It is not specified whether it is a separate tray or a hybrid one.

The screen is simple. Diagonal 6.52 ″, resolution 720 × 1600 (269 ppi). There is no increased refresh rate, only the standard 60 Hz.

With the battery, everything is fine. Capacious, 5000 mAh. High-speed charging, however, no.

The set of cameras is simple.The front one has a resolution of 8 MP. The rear module is triple. The main camera is 48 MP. Plus two auxiliary ones - either 2 + 2 MP, or 2 + 0.3 MP - data from different sources diverge.

There is no NFC module, no gyroscope.Apparently, there is no fingerprint scanner either, although it is mentioned on some sites. (If there were a scanner, it would hardly have been so detailed on the official website about unlocking by face - and only by him, dear).

There is no support for 5G networks. LTE, of course, is, but the bands are categorically not ours, there is neither the seventh nor the twentieth.

The Meizu Blue Charm 10 is relatively inexpensive.¥ 699 (₽8210, $ 110), ¥ 799 (₽9380, $ 125) and ¥ 899 (₽10600, $ 141) for the 4 + 64, 4 + 128 and 6 + 128 GB versions, respectively. Most likely, the device will appear in the Chinese stores available to us in the foreseeable future. But, as for me, there is no point in buying.
