Just five months after announcing the Meizu MX, Meizu has unveiled the MX Quad-core, a super speedy smartphone packing Samsung’s quad-core Exynos A9 processor. While the Chinese company hasn’t yet disclosed the chip’s clock speed, it does promise that it provides a 60% increase in CPU performance over the Meizu MX, and a 50% increase in GPU performance.
That should give you quad-core junkies something to smile about.
The device maintains that gorgeous form factor first seen on its predecessor, which many feel looks just like an iPod touch from the front. It does, however, boast a new display. While maintain the same size at 4 inches, its resolution has been increased to 1024 x 600 at 292 dpi.
It also boasts the same 8-megapixel camera with an f/2.2 lens, 1GB of RAM, and a microUSB slot. It runs Meizu’s own “Flyme OS,” however, this time it’s based on Android Ice Cream Sandwich rather than Gingerbread.
The device will come with 32GB or 64GB of storage, priced at ¥2,999 (approx. $475) and ¥3,999 (approx. $635) respectively, and will be available in mainland China and Hong Kong in June. There are no plans for an international launch just yet.
The original Meizu MX will now be discounted to ¥2,399 (approx. $380).
