About 10 days ago a screenshot was going around of Meizu MX4’s benchmarks score on AnTuTu, at that time the device wasn’t even announced yet. That screenshot was showing a whopping 52811 score, many people were surprised and quite frankly didn’t believe the leak. Well, Meizu MX4 was launched recently and a Chinese iGeek portal redo the benchmark and got pretty much the same result. This time around the MX4’s score was 51807, which shows that the previous leak wasn’t exactly fake. This ia above and beyond what Galaxy S5, Note 3 and HTC One (M8) score for example. Though Samsung did release a Galaxy Note 4 yesterday, it’s going to be interesting to see how that device stacks up next to the MX4 as far as benchmarks go, though we’ve already seem some benchmarks on the Note 4. Benchmark results really don’t have to mean that much though considering software means a lot and it’s the real life performance that counts, but this is one of the ways to see how the devices stack up one next to the other.
Meizu MX4 smartphone is sporting a 5.36-inch 1080p (1920 x 1152) display, 2GB of RAM and 16, 32 or 64GB of internal storage. MediaTek’s MT6595 octa-core chip (four ARM Cortex-A17 and four Cortex-A7 cores) is powering this thing alongside a PowerVR Series 6 GPU. 20.7-megapixel camera is located at the back of the device while there’s a 5-megapixel shooter up front. The device comes with a 3100mAh battery and Android 4.4.4 KitKat out of the box with the new version of Meizu’s OS, Flyme 4.0. The device comes in gray, white and gold colors and is available for pre-order in China at this time. 16GB version will set you back 1799 yuan ($292), 32GB version costs 1999 yuan ($325) and the most expensive one out of the bunch, 64GB version, will cost you 2399 yuan, which is approximately $390. The device will be available elsewhere starting September 20.
As I said, benchmarks really don’t have to mean anything and give the real picture as far as device’s performance goes (software is a huge part of the experience), but they’re at least sort of an indication what the device’s insides are capable of. What are your thoughts on the MX4, do you like Meizu’s newest flagship?
