Meizu Note 9 has been launched by the Asian smartphone manufacturers, with the major highlights of the device being its 6GB of RAM, 48MP camera at the rear, and more surprisingly, water-drop notch display. Meizu Note 9 is a mid-range device that boasts of a 6.2-inch FHD+ water-drop notch display with 84.7% screen-to-body ratio.
According to Gizmochina, the phone is expected to be the manufacturer’s answer to Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro. The Meizu Note 9 comes with dual rear cameras – a 48MP primary sensor and a 5MP secondary sensor. There is no confirmation yet but it has been reported that the phone uses the same Samsung ISOCELL GM1 sensor as the Redmi Note 7.
The picture above is of the La Sagrada Familia, an uncompleted Roman Catholic church in Barcelona and was shared by Meizu’s VP, Li Nan. It isn’t a super wide-angle image but the Meizu Note 9 does a great job at capturing most of the building.
On a side note, since the picture was taken in Barcelona, we know the Meizu Note 9 is at MWC. Maybe someone will provide live photos of the device before the event is over. The Meizu Note 9 will also come with a 20MP front-facing camera that is housed within the notch of its 6.2-inch FHD+ display.
It will be powered by a Snapdragon 675 processor with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. The phone will run Android 9 Pie out of the box with Flyme 7.2 on top and launch in black, silver, and blue.
