We have been hearing rumors that Meizu is planning a successor to its Meizu MX3 smartphone in the form of the Meizu MX4G, a device which looks like it will be getting a 2K display of its own and pack a pixel density of over 500ppi. While it seems that 2K displays on smartphones are starting to become the standard of 2014, new rumors have surfaced suggesting that the Meizu MX4G might come in more than one variant, with the high-end model expected to be known as the Meizu MX4 Pro. So what’s the difference in models, you ask?
Well if the rumors are true, there will be two models: an ultra high-end model, and a high-end model. The ultra high-end model is expected to sport the rumored 2K display, while the high-end model will instead use a Full HD 1080p display which has more or less become the standard of smartphone displays in 2013. The high-end model is also rumored to be powered by MediaTek’s octa-core processor, and we can only assume the same will apply to the ultra high-end model as well.
The rumors are also claiming that one of the models will feature a Lytro-like camera system which allows users to shoot photos first and tweak its focus after. In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but we have heard the announcement by Meizu on how they plan to enter the US market and will debut their products at CES 2014.
