Meizu just announced the new MX4 a week ago but now, we’re hearing whispers that the company is already working on an upgraded version of the device known as the MX4 Pro.
The MX4 Pro is set to be released with a 5.4 inch 2560 x 1536 resolution display which is a huge upgrade from the MX4’s 5.36 inch 1920 x 1152 display.
The MX4 Pro is suppose to sport a better processor than the original MX4 and 4 GB of RAM. However, there seems to be a flaw in the leaks. The 4GB of RAM can only work properly on a processor that can handle it like a 64-bit processor. However, leaks are saying that the MX4 Pro will be equipped with a A17/A15 big.LITTLE octacore configuration which is a 32-bit processor. The 32-bit processor can only support 3GBs of RAM at a time.
The only time that we’ve seen a low end processor support a big amount of RAM and that is on the Tronsmart Orion R28 set-top box. The manufacturer managed to pull this off by allowing the processor to support “Large Physical Address Extension”, a technology that allows access to more physical memory.
Is Meizu trying to follow in the footsteps of this device? Others are of the opinion that it might just be a typo and that the processor could be an Exynos 5430 octacore chip with A15/A7 big.LITTLE configuration, an ARM V7A processor that would be able to use the 4GB RAM.
