Well, well, after seeing results of its benchmark leaked out prior to today, as well as the back part of the handset get caught in the wild, here we are with China-based Meizu having officially rolled out the Meizu MX4 smartphone. This particular model will not offer a wee increment in performance and capabilities, but rather, it will deliver an improvement by leaps and bounds, starting with its 5.36″ IPS display that has 1152 x 1920 resolution and Gorilla Glass 3 protection.
Meizu claims that the display on the Meixu MX4 would be the first of its kind in the industry, where it will merge a trio of key features; namely 1100:1 contrast, 500cd/m2 brightness and 85% NTSC color gamut. With an aspect ratio of 15:9, the bottom row of extra pixels will see action thanks to Meizu’s very Flyme 4.0 OS when it comes to on-screen controls, which still leaves room for the entire 1080p resolution where apps are concerned.
Other hardware specifications for the Meixu MX4 include a MediaTek MT6595 chipset that has an octa-core CPU with a quartet of Cortex-A17 cores @ 2.2GHz, while there are also another four Cortex-A7 cores @ 1.7GHz cores. A quad-core PowerVR G6200 GPU will chug along nicely with 2GB RAM. Apart from that, there is a 20.7MP Sony Exmor RS sensor with dual-LED dual-tone flash, with a 2MP front-facing camera that ought to cater for selfie lovers.
Connectivity options for the Meizu MX4 comprise of Cat.4 LTE, 3G with HSPA, dual-band Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.0. You can choose from 16GB, 32GB and 64GB models, where a 3,100mAh Sony battery will run this bad boy. Expect it to cost anywhere from €225 to €300 for the Meizu MX4, depending on its internal storage space. While one can pick it up in China, there is still no word on a worldwide rollout.
