Meizu M6 8GB Enroute
Meizu today said it was about to release a new version of its M6 Mini Player, according to a newly leaked photo (pictured). The iPod-influenced media device should get an upgrade to 8GB of flash storage, giving a significant lift to support for music, photos, and videos. The design and shape should remain close to the original M6 in spite of the added memory. Meizu anticipates launching the 8GB model on March 1st for an unknown price, though the device should sell for far less than most competing hardware given the $164 price of the 4GB edition.
The Chinese firm also announced today that it would push back the launch of the M3, also known as the MusicCard. The iPod nano-like, music focused player was due to be released at the same time as the M6 but will now see an introduction later in the month. No specific reason was given for the delay.
