Meizu is one of those companies who aren’t well know but makes some great hardware. (And software, for that matter.) I was blown away by their Android-running M9 when it was first unveiled and I still hate the fact that I can’t get one for myself.

The folks at Meizu are looking to unveil a sequel to the M9, though, simply called the MX. (For 10, presumably.) It closely resembles the iPhone, but that isn’t the least bit surprising – their reputation for style has been closely followed with a reputation for being Apple copycats.

Still, what they’ve done here with both the hardware and software is beyond marveling. The MX is expected to still be running Android (2.3) by the time it comes out with Meizu’s heavily-customized user interface on top. It’s said to have a dual-core processor of some type, 16GB of internal storage and 1GB of RAM.

All of this will come in at around $550 – a modest price for the package. (AT&T’s Motorola ATRIX 4G was priced around the same range with similar features.) Take a look at the shot above. [via Electronista]
