Meizu’s CEO Jack Wong dropped its latest iPhone “clone” prototype today – the Meizu MX. Previously known as the M9II, the MX will feature a larger 4-inch screen, but retain its 960×640 resolution display. Apple’s iPhone 5 is rumored to also sport a 4-inch display instead of the 3.5-inch screen that’s currently in all iPhones. Electronista thinks that the existence of a 4-inch display with the same resolution as the iPhone 4 points gives more weight to the larger iPhone 5 display rumor. On the specs side, the MX will most likely have a dual-core processor, run Android 2.3 or later, have a minimum of 16GB of storage, 1GB of RAM and is less than a hundredth of an inch thicker than the iPhone 4. The photo above is strictly a prototype, but we can see that it looks to have a slightly curved back, as the phone’s edges “float” above its shadow. And if the Meizu MX is anything like its predecessors, it’ll likely have a removable battery as well. For anti-Apple fans, this Meizu’s latest looks to be a worthy competitor, at least on paper. Meizu hopes to have to smartphone out by the end of this year for about $548.
