Meizu plans nano-rivaling thin M6 player

Meizu M6se Thin

Meizu today said it was planning an exceptionally thin version of its M6 media player. Titled simply the M6se, the updated version would use newer processors, a thinner shell, and a thinner battery to reduce the thickness of the player to 7mm, or less than 0.28 inches -- roughly equaling the thickness of Apple's iPod nano despite the larger 2.4-inch LCD and the enhanced performance needed to decode movies as well as more demanding audio codecs such as OGG. Battery life is the only sacrifice, Meizu says, with the lithium-ion unit dropping from 700mAh to 500mAh.

In contrast to the original M6, which shipped with multiple storage levels, the M6se should be available only in a single 8GB model. Meizu intends an August shipping timeframe at a price of roughly $131 for the company's native China. Meizu exports its players internationally, however, and should become available soon afterwards for dealers and importers in other regions. [via Meizu forums]
