Android 4.0 Meizu MX Quad-core launching in June with Samsung Exynos CPU


Meizu has an update to their MX flagship slated for release in China and Hong Kong this summer. The Meizu MX Quad-core will utilize a Samsung Exynos chipset. As the phone’s name suggests it will be the new quad-core Exynos platform that Samsung should also be deploying in their upcoming Galaxy S III flagship, only Meizu has beaten them to the punch. The handset’s battery gets a bump from 1600mAh to 1700mAh. Otherwise, specs remain fairly similar to the previous version of the MX with a 4-inch 960×640 display and 8MP camera.

The Meizu MX Quad-core will ship with a customized version of Ice Cream Sandwich in June starting at ¥2,999 ($480) for the 16GB model. The original MX will see a price drop to ¥2,399  ($380).

          1. Thank you for copying and pasting a bunch of unsubstantiated rumors.

          2. If history of Galaxy phones are any indication, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out most of it will come to fruition.

            ps – what i don’t see likely happening is the usb 2.0 ports as well as 1080p.  more than anything, i look forward to the design, quad core and wireless charging.  We’ll talk once again after may 3rd.

  3. Started off as a iPhone knock off and turned into something extremely different. Countless roms based of their OS layer.

    1. Does Meizu even release anything?. I swear their M8 was supposed to kill the iphone for like 3 years running. I keep hearing meizu this and meizu that but I have yet to see anything.

      I’m legitimately asking, not trying to fan a meizu conspiracy or anything.

  4. what size is the screen? 

  5.  why dont they release phones in various colors in america. its just not fair.

  6. While I’m a big fan of stock ICS, I’d jump on a Meizu UI port for my GS2 in an instant. Not just a theme, the whole thing. It looks so well polished. If the Meizu phones ever flop I hope they begin licensing out their UI to other manufacturers.

  7. That’s the phone that needs to come to the States!
