Meizu MX Quad-Core Launching in June for £252

Meizu has just announced its future flag-ship, the MX Quad-Core, a smartphone with a quad-core chip built by Samsung and powered by Android 4.0. The phone will be released in the upcoming few months.

The chip is known as the Samsung Exynos and is based on Cortex A9, with a still unknown clock frequency or RAM quantity. Rumours claim this can go as high as 1.5GHz, while manufacturers state that the processor consumes 20 per cent less power compared with the previous generation of the phone.

Speaking of power, the smartphone will have a 1,700 mAh battery, 100 mAh more than the original Meizu MX. The phone's case will come in five colours, including Magenta, White and Purple.

The handset will have a 4-inch wide screen with a 960 by 640 pixel resolution and an 8-megapixel back camera. Although there are no microSD card slots, the phone will arrive with two models: one that has 32GB of built-in memory and one that has 64GB.

Softwise, the new Meizu MX will run a modified Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich version, dubbed as Flyme OS.

The Meizu MX Quad-core will be released in June and should be available in China for the price of £303 (the 16GB model) and £401 (the 32GB model). The phone can also be purchased in Hong Kong for £252 or £334, for the larger version.
