Meizu has just revealed their newest device to the world, entitled the Meizu M3 Max. It's called 'Max' for a reason, the phone is rocking a 6" 1080p screen, placing it firmly into phablet territory. Meizu says they chose that size to make multi-window functionality and media consumption more usable, which is a very valid point.

The M3 Max is rocking a 4,100mAh battery to power that massive screen, much more than the capacity of recent flagship devices such as the Moto Z (2600mAh) and Galaxy Note 7 (3500mAh). The phone also features a fingerprint sensor up front, capable of storing up to five fingerprints for authentication. The rear camera is a 13MP affair with burst mode and dual LED flash, and the front camera is 5MP.

The phone is powered by the eight-core MediaTek Helio P10 CPU with ARM's Mali-T860 GPU. This phone actually has twice the amount of CPU cores as my gaming PC, but whether or not the extra cores will translate into real-world performance is anyone's guess. The M3 Max also has 3GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage (also available with 128GB of internal storage). Another interesting feature is mCharge, allowing for a peak charging rate of 24W. This is a massive step up from Qualcomm's QuickCharge 3.0 at a measly 18W.

The M3 Max is available in Champagne Gold, Silver, Gray, and Rose Gold. The price in China is RMB 1,699, roughly equivalent to $250 USD. The phone has already been made available in Europe and Asia, but Meizu has made no announcements of a North American release.
