Meizu officially launches MX4: 5.36-inch 1080p display, 8-core CPU, 20 megapixel camera and more

meizu-mx4-565x480

Meizu has officially launched their latest flagship smartphone — the Meizu MX4. The device is absolutely ridiculous in the specs department, and it doesn’t look too bad on the outside either. Here’s what you can look forward to should you buy the $300 wonder (currently available for pre-order from OppoMart):

  • 5.36-inch 1920 x 1152 display
  • 2.2GHz MediaTek MT6595 octo-core processor
  • 20.7 megapixel rear Sony camera, 2.0 megapixel front Sony camera
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 16GB, 32GB or 64GB storage
  • Android 4.4 KitKat with Flyme 4.0
  • 3,100mAh battery
  • 144 x 75.2 x 8.9mm, 147g

That doesn’t sound bad at all for $300, right? The phone is machined with an aluminum alloy material, and also has 2.36mm thin bezels — not quite edge-to-edge, but not so shabby, either.

Uortunately the device is already out of stock (not surprising at that price tag), but OppoMart is sure to be getting more in stock in due time. Meizu’s products might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but we wouldn’t be surprised if they won themselves a few new fans with this release. The MX4 is set to ship later this month, so let us know if you’ll be looking to purchase one in the near future.

  • Daniel Walsh

    Looks nice, but I’m not impressed.

  • lukaslukasm

    It does scream iPhone lookalike but it looks very appealing because of the price tag. I want to know how flyme is though

  • AbbyZFresh

    Here’s a couple problems.
    1. iOS knockoff
    2. Chinese phone
    3. No Google Play Store
    4. No buy.

      5. No good custom ROMS (CM)
      6. No TWRP
      7. Not a SAMOLED display
      8. No SD slot

      • WhoaManWtF

        9. No American LTE support
        10. We generally try to keep Chinese software off our phones, they even wrote the kernel on this one…

          Yeah, the NSA spying on me is more wholesome than the Chinese spying. Wait…

          • Tony Lai

            Remove carrier IQ…

          • WhoaManWtF

            Well the NSA is spying on you either way though, this is just opening up another avenue… And as nefarious as the NSA is at least I am not worried about them stealing from me (In a way I will notice).

      • DDroid45

        SLCD better IMHO

    • DDroid45

      Definitely agree with every point but it being a Apple knock off, well lets just say I’m a diehard droid fan and user but you know as well as everyone else Apple design is dam near flawlessly beautiful year after year, they shoulda went with the look of the 5S IMHO

      • Durin123

        I prefer to be able to type one character at a time rather than having an iPhone. I can’t use a child-sized keyboard effectively.

        • DDroid45

          lol i wasnt refering to the size of the phone, im talking about the design, lets be honest, the build quality and design of an iphone 5s the size of say a nexus 5 running android would give the M8 a run for its money in terms of pure style….and no this has nothing to do with the software

          • Dwight

            I really don’t like the iPhone design. Too square and unnatural for me. The m8 destroys it in my book, with its curved back making it feel razor thin. The iPhone has that right angle edge that just ruins it IMO.

    • vinnyjr

      easily add google play store. thought i seen article where LTE was available for US network.

  • Line6ix

    Which carriers will this work on?

    • AbbyZFresh

      It won’t work with US carriers since they use a different LTE signal than the LTE in China.

      • Line6ix

        thanks

    • Jason Crumbley

      It is a GSM based phone and will work with GSM carriers, just not on LTE.

    Looks like a win to me:

    1. Masterful use of Apple-inspired design. We can be confident they will have the same high-class in dealing with their customers as they do in dealing with intellectual property.
    2. We know things are never too good to be true (case in point, the One Plus One, which delivered on all our high-hopes with its consistent build quality and timely shipping).
    3. When I buy Chinese flashlights, the great lumens claims are always true, just like the mAh claims of this battery.
    4. Even though this won’t be sold in retail stores within the US, I’m sure all their customer service is USA based, and they’re trained in USA customer satisfaction.
    4. With a name like Meizu, which rhymes with kazoo (My favorite instrument), I’m sure this will be my favorite phone.
    4. Buy with confidence!

    • Durin123

      Kazoo. Roflmao.

  • domatau

    Mediatek cpu? The article clearly overhypes this phone

    • mcl630

      Friends don’t let friends buy Mediatek!

  • Tony Lai

    No supported 4G LTE is useless…

  • soni manutd

    meizu has been begging to be sued by apple from their hardware to software designs…
