Meizu C9 has just been officially introduced, and it comes with humble specs to cater those who are looking for a budget-friendly smartphone.
The Meizu C9 sticks with the 18:9 aspect ratio screen as it skips the display notch that everybody has. The screen itself measures at 5.45-inch, diagonally, with a resolution of 1400 x 720 pixels.
It sports a Unisoc SC9832E quad-core processor, with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage. That’s a chipset that should be enough to handle daily tasks, and maybe some basic gaming.
The battery is rated at 3,000mAh, which is more than enough to last you for a day or two, considering the underpowered hardware that it needs to power.
As a bonus, Meizu added a pretty decent set of cameras. We have a 13-megapixel primary camera on the back, while on the front there’s an 8-megapixel shooter for taking selfies.
