Today, we got a great news for all enthusiasts of Meizu. Follows on from the dual-core MX that announced five months ago, the quad-core model is now on its way to Meizu flagship store! The new device will come the promised quad-core Exynos 4412 processor, customized Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and some more…Are you looking forward to grab one? Check out the pricing details after the break.
Meizu MX Quad-Core Specs
The Meizu MX quad-core will come in two versions, 32GB and 64GB. Worth noting, Meizu did not offer a 16GB model for the quad-core model, and there’s no expandable storage. The machine is powered by Samsung’s new 1.5Ghz quad-core Exynos 4412 processor. Meizu claimed the processor will bring down the power consumption of the CPU by up to 20%, and also its battery capacity will increase to 1,700 mAh, which will provide the phone with even better battery life. Other specs are basically the same as the previous version, such as a 4-inch ASV display (960×640) and a 8.0 megapixel BSI camera with an f/2.2 lens. Lastly, it’ll unveil with Meizu-customized Android Ice Cream Sandwich system, the Meizu’s Flyme OS.
Meizu did not offer various color for its Meizu phone previously, but seems like they have inspired by Xiaomi’s multi-color back cover and promised to bring its back cover with five colors.
Pricing & Comparison
The MEIZU MX Quad-core will be available in Meizu’s 400 retail stores in June, the 32GB version will go from 2,999 RMB ($480) in China and 3,099 HKD ($400) in Hong Kong; then the 64GB version priced at 3,999 RMB ($635) and 4,099 HKD ($530). The company has no international plans yet. Must mention, due to the currency exchange, it is much cheaper to buy it in Hong Kong. Considering the quad-core version is at the same price as its predecessor, Meizu will reduce its dual-core version to 2,399 yuan ($380) and 2,599 yuan ($335). Furthermore, Meizu M9 got price drop once again! It’s now available at Meizu official site at 1,699 yuan ($274), or the refurbished version at 1,499 yuan ($242).
Apart from Meizu, there’re also quad-core phones from Huawei, ZTE, HTC and Xiaomi. Out of all, HTC is the earliest one to sell its quad-core phone. Huawei Ascend D quad and ZTE Era have already debut at MWC. Xiaomi still hasn’t announced its quad-core phone yet, but there were many rumors saying Foxconn had already received massive orders from Xiaomi.
Speaking of price, only Meizu MX and HTC One X are known, the others remain unconfirmed. SIM-free HTC One X is selling at about 4,800 yuan ($780); Xiaomi 2nd gen is rumored to be priced at 2,499 yuan ($403); Huawei D Quad is probably around 3,500 yuan ($565); no pricing detail about ZTE Era.
For now, we only have a clear understanding about the specs of Meizu MX, Huawei D-quad and HTC One X. By comparing those three, Huawei D-Quad has the fastest processor, its CPU and GPU performance totally beats Nvidia Tegra 3 and Samsung Exynos (not the one that Meizu MX is using). However, we have yet to see the performance of Exynos 4412 that Meizu is put in their quad-core phone, and that could possibly beat Huawei K3V2 processor. Furthermore, Huawei D-Quad’s battery has the largest capacity, but that doesn’t necessary mean it has the best endurance, it also depends on how many power does the processor consume. HTC One X boosts the biggest display at 4.7-inch, and its camera maybe the best one (It can shoot stills and videos simultaneously). After all, anything good about Meizu MX? Well, it’s cheapest one at the moment. But who knows when Xiaomi unveil its quad-core phone.
