Meizu made quite a splash yesterday when it unveiled not one but three new products. Well, two and a half to be precise, as one is just a different variant. That variant is the new Meilan m1 Note for China Telecom, this time bearing a Snapdragon 615 instead of a MediaTek. Completely new, however, is its smaller sibling, the Meilan m1, with a 5-inch screen instead of the larger 5.5.

Xiaomi is starting 2015 with a bang.

Meizu M1 Note makes a colorful statement for youngsters

Want a rather colorful smartphone that doesn't skimp on features but won't break your wallet like an iPhone 5c would? If so, and if you're in China, then Meizu has got you covered. Its new M1 Note, though probably a misnomer, splashes vibrant colors all over the place. But make no mistake to judge this smartphone by its case.
