The folks over in China don’t cease to amaze, and one local manufacturer in the People’s Republic has done what no other manufacturer has done up till now. Meizu today released the world’s first 128GB phone, the substantial storage option is offered on its MX3 phone. This particular variant only works on TD-SCDMA, which means its only compatible with China Mobile. Those desperate enough to use it on other networks can connect to a GSM 2G network, though the device isn’t going to be sold outside China, not even in other regional markets.
The Meizu MX3 has a 5.1 inch 1,800×1,080 pixel resolution display, which translates into a quirky aspect ration of 15:9. Under the hood there’s an Exynos 5 Octa processor aided by 2GB of RAM. Its also available with less onboard storage, the 16GB MX3 variants costs just over $400, as per the going exchange rate. The top of the line 128GB variant is priced at CN¥3,999 or roughly $650. Its possible that Meizu might release a 128GB variant of the WCDMA MX3 as well. Another Chinese manufacturer, Vivo, is expected to release a phone with the same amount of storage. Its likely to support TD-LTE and FD-LTE networks, which would increase the Vivo Xplay 3‘s usability outside China.
