Meitu is a Chinese smartphone manufacturer that many of you probably never heard of. This company tends to launch rather unique-looking devices, and the latest one out of the bunch is the Meitu V4 which was announced quite recently. Now, the Meitu V4 is quite probably different than anything you’ve seen thus far in terms of the design, which doesn’t mean you’ll like it, but it’s certainly different. Anyhow, let’s take a look at what Meitu V4 has to offer, shall we.
If you take a look at the provided images, you’ll get to see Meitu V4’s design. This handset sport a hexagon-shaped design, and interestingly enough, you’ll find a 21-megapixel camera on the front side of this device. So Meitu V4 is not only rather oddly-shaped device, but it’s also a selfie phone at the same time. This handset sports a 5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) AMOLED display along with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The phone is powered by MediaTek’s Helio X10 (MT6795) 64-bit octa-core processor, and a 2,650mAh battery is also a part of this package. Now, the 21-megapixel camera is located on both the front and back of this smartphone. Both of these cameras sport the f/2.2 aperture, and Shestilinzovaya optics with sapphire protection. The front-facing shooter has a 78.2-degree wide-angle lens which should come in handy for selfie shots. Android 5.1 Lollipop comes pre-installed on this handset, along with Meitu’s MeiOS 2.5 which is available on top of Google’s OS. The phone measures 152.4 x 68.8 x 8.95mm, while it weighs 145 grams.
Now, those of you who are familiar with Meitu’s products would know that the Hexagon design is quite common over at Meitu, that is actually the company’s iconic design in a way. Anyhow, the Meitu V4 will be available in Rose Pink, MIntGreen and Aurora White color options, and it is priced at 3,499 Yuan ($548). Now, the company has also said that a special, limited edition of this handset will be available for 6,099 Yuan ($955), but we still don’t have many details when it comes to that handset. Meitu will quite probably use different materials or something to that effect. Either way, the Meitu V4 will be available for purchase starting November 20th, and it will be available through flash sales at first.
