The Chinese phone manufacturer known as Meizu may not be that well known but they do offer up some mighty tempting smartphones. Last year Meizu revealed the MX and said that it was to be available in both dual core and quad core versions. While the dual core version has been available for some time the quad core version has now been officially announced for a June release in China and Hong Kong.
The Meizu MX will be the first quad core device to not be powered by Nvidia’s Tegra 3 chipset, instead favouring an Exynos A9 chipset. This will likely be very similar to what will be running in Samsung’s Galaxy S III. It only has a 4 inch qHD display, which will please many people that have been crying out for a powerful phone without a massive (4.3″ plus) display.
It will also have a 8 MP camera with a LED flash and there is evidence of a front facing webcam. The MX’s battery will have a capacity of 1700 mAh and it will be shipping with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with Meizu’s own “Flyme OS” layered on top.
The quad core Meizu MX will be available in 32 and 64 GB models and will set you back roughly $425 and $630 respectively.
KitGuru says: The Meizu MX could well take the crown for the most powerful Android smartphone, it is such a pity they’ll be hard to source outside of China.
