Meizu announces the Meizu MX4
Everyone doesn’t have the highest regard for smartphones made in China. Recently however, powerhouses like XiaoMi have appeared from the under estimated company and it seems that people are flocking towards the made in China devices. I wouldn’t be surprised if many of the sceptics switch sides after they get a look at Meizu’s newest flagship, the Meizu MX4.
The Meizu MX4 was rumoured to bring one of the most amazing screen-to-body ratios of the market and it seems it will live up to these rumours. The device runs on Android 4.4.4 KitKat under Meizu’s Flyme 4.0 skin and is equipped with a 5.36-inch display 1920 x 1152 resolution. It delivers a good 418 PPI on a display that gives you 75.5% of screen-to-body ratio because of the devices 144 x 75.2 x 8.9mm dimensions. The gadget is powered by the MediaTek MT6595 octa-core processor where four Cortex A17 cores are clocked at 2.2 GHz, and the other four Cortex A7 cores are clocked at 1.7 GHz. Other than that, the MX4 features a 3,100 mAh battery, 4G connectivity, and options for 16, 32, and 64GB of storage since there is no expandable storage on this device. Lastly, there is a Sony Exmor RS 20.7 MP camera with an f/2.2 aperture, 0.3-second focus time, a 25 FPS burst shot and the ability to record 4K videos.
The device has already gone on pre-order in its home country. The price tag is around $293 for the 16 GB, $325 for the 32 GB, and $390 for the 64GB model. However, the largest variant is exclusively made for China.
