Remember the Meizu MX? The Chinese handset maker that had revealed the Meizu MX handset last year, running a custom version of Android 2.3 Gingerbread. When the company announced the MX, it also stated that it would be releasing a quad-core variant of the handset.
Yesterday, the company finally announced the quad-core variant of the MX. The Meizu MX is the first handset to be announced by any company to use a non-Tegra 3 quad-core SoC. Instead, the Meizu MX uses a quad-core Exynos 4412 processor from Samsung, which is built on the 32nm fabrication process. There is also a very high probability that the same SoC will be found inside Samsung’s flagship handset, the Galaxy S III.
Other specs of the handset are pretty mediocre including a 4-inch qHD (960*640) ASV display, an 8MP camera with an f/2.2 lens aided by an LED flash, a 1700mAh battery and the usual bunch of connectivity features. The quad-core variant of the Meziu MX will be available from early June this year. The handset will be running on the company’s own “Flyme OS UI”, which itself is based on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The 32GB and 64GB variant of the Meizu MX will cost 2999/3999 CNY and $3099/4099 HKD in Mainland China and Hong Kong, respectively.
