Meizu just announced Meizu MX4 Pro and by doing that put an end to rumors regarding that handset. We’ve seen tons of rumors and leaks in the past couple of weeks and I’m glad that’s over. Most rumors were spot on an guessed the device’s specifications, most of its features and its looks. Meizu MX4 Pro features a 5.5-inch 2K (2560 x 1536) display along with 3GB of RAM and 16, 32 or 64GB of internal storage. The device is powered by Samsung’s Exynos 5430 octa-core processor which comes along with Mali-T628 MP6 GPU for graphics processing. 20.7-megapixel rear-facing camera by Sony and a 5-megapixel front-facing sensor by OmniVision are also a part of this package and the handset ships with a 3350mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat with Flyme OS on top of it. Pricing starts at 2499 Yuan ($408) for the 16GB version, if you’re interested to know more, check out our announcement and specification posts.
That being said, rumors (and analysts) were saying that Meizu will release a 799 Yuan smartphone quite recently and more and more rumors are pointing towards it. The newest report comes from the industry analyst Pan Jiutang, who says that Meizu will release this handset at the end of December. This handset should be Meizu’s competitor for the lower segment of the market and will reportedly cost between 1000 and 1300 Yuan ($163 and $212). According to the analyst, this handset will sport a MediaTek’s MT6752, a 64-bit octa-core processor and will be a dual-SIM device. There’s no word on the rest of its specifications though. This sounds really interesting actually, does this mean Meizu will release 2 more devices by the end of this year, or is only one of these rumors spot on and we’ll see only one device but the price guesses are off. I actually don’t know what to believe at this point, especially considering we didn’t get more details when it comes to specifications and we can’t compare the 2 reports properly. Either way, this handset should be a direct competitor to Xiaomi’s Redmi 1S handset.
Do you think we’re talking about 1 handset here or will Meizu, in fact, release at least 2 more devices by the end of this year? While we’re at it, do you like the just released Meizu MX4 Pro?
