Meizu MX launches January 1 with 14GHz dualcore chip for 470

first_imgBrace yourself, China. the Meizu MX is coming soon. The company’s latest Android smartphone offering will launch on January 1, 2012 for just under 3,000 Yen (about $470).Meizu has also delivered a full list of specifications, and the Meizu MX is no slouch. It packs a 1.4GHz Samsung Exynos 4210 processor paired with a Mali-400 MP GPU for plenty of graphics muscle. The MX also crams in 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, 8MP rear and VGA front cameras, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1, GSM/GPRS/EDGE/CDMA/HSPA+ support, a micro SIM slot, and micro USB for charging and data transfer.At 139 grams and 10.3mm thickness, the Meizu MX isn’t anywhere near as slender as the Fujitsu Arrows ES we showed you the other day — but it’s pretty close to the iPhone 4S. That’s not a complete surprise, given the amount of “inspiration” Meizu’s past efforts took from Apple’s seminal smartphone.For its operating system the MX features Flyme OS, a heavily customized version of Android 2.3. Meizu says that an update to Ice Cream Sandwich is coming soon, and that it will be delivered to both the brand-new MX and its predecessor, the M9.Meizu also has a quad-core version of the MX planned, but the company says it won’t be arriving until later on in 2012. That makes sense, since by then every mobile gadget company under the sun will have pumped out something portable with a quad-core chip in it. We’ve already seen the HTC Zeta and a 5-inch Lenovo phoneblet use one, and there’s talk of the Samsung Galaxy S3 shipping with a quad processor as well.More at Engadgetlast_img
