With all the big name manufacturers hitting us with their latest flagship devices — Samsung Galaxy S III, Nokia Lumia 900, HTC One X — one less known manufacturer is unleashing a device that hopes to garner your attention.

Meizu is introducing its follow up to the MX (review here), dubbed MX 4-Core, which is a device that comes packing Ice Cream Sandwich and a quad-core A9 chip. But do the upgraded specs mean it can compete against the best Android devices on the market?

In addition to OS and processor, the Meizu 4-Core comes with 1GB RAM, 4-inch display (960×640), 1700 mAh battery, 8-megapixel rear cam with 1080p video recording (0.3-megapixel front), Bluetooth 2.1, and 32 or 64GB of internal storage. Not bad, but nothing that’ll blow the others out of the water.

Everyone has their own preference. While the Meizu MX wasn’t particularly bad, it ultimately felt run-of-the-mill. Will the MX 4-Core be any different?
