Meizu MX Quad Core Android Smartphone Launching June 30th

[tab name=’News’]


It has just been announced by the Chinese manufacturer Meizu, that the company will be releasing an updated version of their MX smartphone which will now feature a quad-core processor.

The original Meizu MX was announced back in December last year, and was eventually released early 2012. Now, a few months on the company have said they are reading the release of a new quad-core version, and hope to release it on or around the 30th of June.

The quad-core Meizu MX has virtually the same specification as the original MX, which includes a 4-inch 960 x 640 display and 8MP. But with the new quad-core processing boost courtesy of the Samsung Exynos chip, it gives the updated MX a 60 percent increase in performance compared to its predecessor. Other changes also include increased storage, meaning you will have a choice of choosing between either a 32GB model, or if you need more storage, a 64GB version.

Apart from the hardware, another unique selling point with the Meizu MX is Flyme OS 1.0, which essentially is a custom skin, based on Android 4.0. The new updated version of Flyme now means that users will be able to take advantage of new features including a phone-finding service and also utilise cloud based storage too.

Users who have the original MX or older M9 are also due to get the update; however they will have to wait a little longer to get Flyme 1.0. It was originally announced that the update would arrive in June, however due to software development issues it has now been pushed back until mid-July at the earliest.

When released, the new Meizu MX will cost around $475 for the 32GB version, while the 64GB variant will set you back around $633.
