Meizu launches updated iPhone clone

The successor to Meizu's iPhone clone, the M8, has gone on sale on Tuesday in the maker's home market of China. Called just the M8 Second Edition, the device is said to have a stronger radio and support both for the China-specific WAPI wireless standard and more traditional Wi-Fi, either of which was absent on the original. Other specs remain thin, but the dedicated music button on the right side of the device is now gone.

The firmware is also said to be the same as the current M8, which will itself be discontinued. It's not clear whether the promised changes, including a GPS sensor and a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, are reflected in the current device, which uses a 3.2-megapxiel camera. The same 8GB and 16GB capacities are expected to be carried over.

The Meizu M8 SE is priced at the equivalent of $293, which is the same price as the original handset when it launched. As with the original, it's not likely that the M8 SE will be sold in North America due in part to likely legal disputes with Apple. [via Meizu Me]
