We heard back before CES that Meizu was coming to CES and would be showcasing their flagship the MX3. Which they also informed us that they are looking to make a major impact in the US in 2014. Which Meizu had never gone to CES nor Mobile World Congress. And now it appears that Meizu is heading to Mobile World Congress later this month as well.
Meizu is a pretty popular manufacturer in China, in fact they have over 600 flagship stores in China. The Meizu MX3 is a pretty awesome flagship device, it's sporting a 5.1-inch 1920×1080 resolution display, running their custom skin called Flyme 3.0 on top of Android 4.2 – Jelly Bean. It also comes with 16/32/64/128GB of internal storage with no microSD card slot and it also has 2GB of RAM. It also has a 8MP shooter on the back and a 2MP shooter on the front. As far as power goes, it's rocking the Exynos 5410, which is an octa-core processor. And it has a 2400mAh battery inside. So it's got some great specs, especially the 128GB of storage on board. I'd love to see the MX3 available in the US, but without LTE, it's going to be a tough sale over here. Right now the MX3 only supports HSPA+ 21mbps networks. But I'd love to see an LTE model.
I don't know about the rest of you guys out there, but I'd love to see Meizu, Xiaomi and some of the other Chinese manufacturers make their way over here. Competition is always good, it makes everyone innovate more and actually have to compete. Nothing against Samsung, LG, HTC, Motorola or the other OEMs, but one of the main things about Android is having the ability to choose which phone you want. And if things keep going the way they are, we will be left with just one OEM.
How many of you would grab the Meizu MX3 if it were available in the US and had LTE on board?
