Update: Meizu has launched the limited edition Star Trek variant of the M3E in China.
The phone will be available in the country starting September 2 — coinciding with the release of Star Trek Beyond in the country — for the equivalent of $225, with production limited to just 5,000 units.
Original story follows:
Samsung has launched limited edition models of its flagships with Batman and Iron Man branding, and it now looks like Chinese manufacturer Meizu is following suit with its upcoming Star Trek edition of the M3E. Leaked images of the phone reveal the Starfleet insignia on the back of the phone, as well as a custom launcher with backgrounds and icons from the franchise.
As for the phone itself, it looks like the Star Trek edition will offer the same hardware as the standard variant of the M3E, which includes a 5.5-inch Full HD display, MediaTek Helio P10 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 32GB storage, microSD slot, 13MP camera at the back, 5MP front shooter, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 4.1, and a 3100mAh battery.
Meizu is slated to unveil the phone in China on September 2. Seeing as how this will be a mid-range offering, it won't be as astronomically priced as Samsung's Injustice Edition, but with no mention of global availability, it will be just as hard to track down.
