Meizu-MX4G

Meizu MX4G Featuring a 5.5-inch 2560×1536 Resolution Display, According to CEO

We’ve been hearing rumors that next year both the Vivo Xplay 3S and the Samsung Galaxy S5 will feature displays that are higher than 1080p. Which is just insane. Now it looks like Chinese manufacturer, Meizu is looking to join that train as well for 2014. The CEO of Meizu, J. Wang hinted that we’d see a 2560×1536 resolution display on their MX4G, which is also going to be a 5.5-inch display.

The part about J Wang, throwing out info about the MX4G, doesn’t really surprise as he did the same thing before the MX3 launch. The MX4G will pack in LTE support, hence the 4G in the name. But at this rate, 4G LTE really isn’t all that amazing, but that display will be. It’ll have a 2560×1536 resolution display which would take it above the 500 PPI next year. Now I’m all for more pixels, I loved the display of the Chromebook Pixel, Nexus 10 and Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition. But at 5.5-inches, do we really need that many pixels? Probably not. But do we want them? Heck yeah! I’m just hoping it packs a pretty beefy battery inside to keep that phone going all day long. The display is already the biggest power drain on a smartphone and now with even more pixels, it’ll be draining even more battery.

Some of these Chinese OEMs, like Meizu, Xiaomi and others, I’d really like to see them make their way over to the US. As some of their devices look really nice and have some amazing specs. I’d love to get in on them. But they sell like crazy in China and have trouble keeping up with demand there, so it’s probably a good thing they aren’t in the US…yet.

How many of you are excited for the Pixel push next year? Or are you waiting on bigger and better batteries? I’d really like a bigger and better battery. You know one  that can last around 15-18 hours on 4G LTE with you actually using the thing. Sounds good right? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
