Meizu's phone designs are usually derivative of more popular phones' designs, and the M3E changes nothing in this respect. No matter which way you slice it, it just looks like an iPhone 6s. However, that's not to say that the M3E is bad; on paper, it actually sounds pretty awesome. Of course, all of this is pretty standard Meizu behavior.

The M3E appears to be the same phone that was leaked earlier this week as the M1E. Notable specs include the 1080p display, the Helio P10, 3GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage (Apple, are you listening?) with microSD expansion, dual SIM capabilities, and Meizu's proprietary mCharge quick charging solution.

This article previously stated the Meizu M3E ran FlymeOS - this is incorrect. The M3E runs YunOS, which you may better know as Aliyun OS, the notorious Android fork that received considerable attention four years back for the OHA (i.e., Google) cancellation of at least one Acer phone and distribution of pirated apps on its store.
