Meizu, who recently announced the Meizu MX quad-core smartphone, has yet another goodie in store for owners of their Meizu MX and M9 smartphones – which would be the Flyme OS 1.0 upgrade. Now, the Flyme operating system is not another smartphone operating system to further dilute the market, but rather, it is based on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, where it will be made available to the masses when June 2012 rolls around. Just what are some of the new additions introduced with Flyme OS 1.0? We shall take a closer look at it right after the jump.
Meizu intends to up the ante over the classic Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system by offering what Meizu deems as a “more logical” experience. Meizu hopes that what their software engineers did would have introduced a more streamlined interaction between the user and the smartphone, while pre-installed apps will be all the more comprehensive. Other features under the hood include backup and sync, lost phone locating, as well as a new cloud services like personal file storage.
Folks living in mainland China will be able to enjoy Meizu’s very own Music Online music streaming app that will see the entire library getting an upgrade to lossless audio formats, now how about that? Owners of the Meizu MX and M9 can make the upgrade to Flyme 1.0 via an OTA (over the air) push straight on their handsets, or they can take the manual route by downloading the firmware upgrade from the official Meizu website later this June.
