Meizu MX Is Officially Unveiled – HSPA+, Dual/Quad-Core and Future Upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich

It’s been a long time coming but the Meizu MX has finally been unveiled in China. If you haven’t been following along, the Meizu’s follow up to the M9 — the MX — will come in both dual-core and quad-core varieties, with the former launching on January 1st for $470.

Specs are this device’s claim to fame featuring a 4-inch 960×640 “ASV” display, 1.4GHz dual-core Exynos processor, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. Also included is a 8MP f/2.2 backside-illuminated rear camera, .3MP front facing camera, secondary noise cancelling microphone and pentaband 3G with HSPA+ making this ripe for the importing.

The device measures in at just 10.3mm thick and even though it will launch with Android 2.3.5, Meizu’s CEO Jack Wong has announced that the MX will be updated to Android 4.0 in the near future (with Meizu’s own slick custom UI thrown on top).

    beautiful, so many great phones coming out i don’t know what to get when i upgrade. Decisions decisions…

  • Jason Purp

    Isn’t this the MIUI phone?

    • Monkey

      Same manufacturer. 

      • Jimmy Guo

        totally different MFR

    • Sonelone

      No. The MIUI phone is made by Xiaomi, who also make MIUI. It’s also much cheaper than the MX.

    I am so tired of CDMA…

       Meaning I am jealous of all the GSM choices even with Verizon’s booming LTE network.

      • chris125

        Agree I wish I would have known this way back when and went with a gsm carrier instead lol

  • chris125

    should be pretty fast and smooth with the exynos processor.

  • ratnok

    iPhone wanna be. I’ll stick with my Sensation 4G and wait for it to be upgraded to ICS.

    • Guest

      Ugh the sensation sucks so bad. I want to pitch mine out the window every day I turn it on and it asks me to set my time zone again, or reloads the UI because I opened 1 app, or turns back on 7 times before it finally accepts my attempts to turn off the screen, or takes 80 screen shots a day because the stupid power button sticks… yea, f the sensation. When it finally gets ICS (Probably late August 2012) i’m sure it will still be loaded down with Sense trash, eating up the minute amount of ram you get to play with now. Last HTC device I ever buy.

      I’m going to have to finally root it soon. I’ve been avoiding it for all i’m worth because i’m lazy and would like my $500 + device to work right the first time… but I just can’t have that when they put Sense on it now can I?

        You are using it wrong, I have 2 sensation and both run smooth as butter.

    Its a rectangle, rounded corners, uses black in the case, and the screen is centered. I see an apple lawsuit.

    A 8MP f/2.2 backside-illuminated rear camera!?

    Damn, who else has these?

    • Guillermo Martinez

      And I think it also has a model with quad-core processor.

  • hulk smash

    Wow looks sexy but will it blend.

  • Sonelone

    That better not be a glossy plastic back that I see.

  • Guest

    Assuming this won’t be coming to the US?

  • Guillermo Martinez

    Great phone! Will this be available on other countries? I certainly hope this device won’t easily ran out of battery.

  • Bryan

    Wow. I can hear the lawsuit now..

  • 建云 余
