Quad Core Meizu MX (Exynos 4412?) Said to be Here May 2012

While many Android tablets are soon to be offered with quad-core configurations (including the already-available ASUS Transformer Prime), we’re still wondering if and when handsets will get over the dual-core hump. Meizu is the first to make public plans to release a quad-core device. It will be an upgraded version of their beautiful Meizu MX.

Other than its quad-core specification there’s not much know about the device at this time except a launch window – May 2012. That’s a decade from now in the world of technology but it’s a timeline we expected for the first quad-core enabled devices to, at the very least, be announced.

Chinese site Techorz speculates that it wouldn’t be foolish to expect Samsung’s quad-core Exynos 4412 inside considering their MX has the dual-core Exynos chipset, though we won’t put too much stock into that speculation.

    Wow this phones looks like a sure lawsuit to me. To iphone-ish in the front for me…

    • riffwaffle

      oh the hitler(sorry for the reference)of mobile phones?its not we its i.

  • drzfr3shboialex

    Awesome! Maybe this will be in the next Nexus.

  • Nizzzy

    Making knock-offs is China’s specialty, i doubt they’ll care.

    How much power does a quad-core chip uses versus dual core ? I don’t see the point of buying one until the next-gen batteries are here, and even then….

    • malcmilli

      Well.. the Tegra 3 actually uses 20% less power than the tegra 2.  So i dont think waiting until next-gen batteries is necessary.  With more cores come better core management and custom configurations.  using only max power and extra cores when needed and using underclocked cores for remedial tasks or video viewing to extend battery life even if its using the same battery

    • ssj4Gogeta

      In devices like smartphones, idle power is much more important than peak power draw. You can power-gate the unused cores. In fact, Tegra 3 includes a special fifth “companion” core which is made of low-power transistors and the main cores are only fired up when needed.

    Hey Phandroid when clicking the link that says “Meizu MX” I get the following:

    “Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.”

    I think the link might not be correct.

    I really like the look of that home screen. I’m going to try and recreate it.

      Doesn’t take a rocket scientist.

    • aeok18109

      its called MIUI – look it up. see if they have a rom for your phone

      • Eyad (formerly CTownOL)

        I think Xiaomi makes Miui, but Meizu also tried to make Android look like iOS!

  • InspectorGadget80

    Why are they trying so hard to he the first to release a quad core phone? You cant even buy this phone here in the states

    • Doan

      You’re saying that if we don’t get it in the states, that no one else should get it?

  • iKing_2

    Once again Apple is flattered…..

    • riffwaffle

      lg is still flattered

      • iKing_2

        So let me get this straight…lg announces their phone in September of 2006, Apple announces in December of 2006….so to follow your incredibly stupid logic, the iPhone was created in 3 months right? I know you’re a fandroid, but even you aren’t THAT stupid (probably). Apple started building the iPhone in 2005:

        Care to share an LG Prada timeline that proves that it pre-dates the iPhone production in 2005, 2 years BEFORE it was brought to market? I won’t hold my breath….

    • riffwaffle

      call it apple iprada…see if they could patent it?watcha think..besides you lame cracks.
