Meizu, a Chinese electronics manufacturer who has a history of “borrowing” design ideas from Apple, has finally bring a pretty nice feature to their MX Android smartphone. Using the 8-megapixel camera of the MX, users are now able to take a picture by sweeping their hand over the proximity sensor. Video demo after the break.
Got the idea? To take a picture, just hold the phone while you sweep your hand over the proximity sensor located by the earpiece slot above the display. It’s a brand new method for taking pictures, and we think that’s pretty cool. To do this, Meizu MX users are required to get the new firmware update for their phone, and below is a video showing other new features of the firmware update that has now been released .
In the video, we see the new firmware for the Meizu MX now supports theming, allowing users to theme virtually everything within Flyme OS (Meizu’s heavily modified Android 2.3.5 OS). Other new features include landscape mode support for SMS and Email app, DLNA support for the Music, Gallery and Video apps, new live wallpapers and Google Play Store. Sadly, there is still no Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich update available.
