Meizu has released four really compelling devices in the last year or so, the Meizu MX4, MX4 Pro, M1 Note and M1. The first two devices were announced as Meizu’s flagships, they were rather affordable at launch, especially considering the build quality and what they have to offer. Well, considering the fact that Meizu plans to announce new handsets in the coming weeks, the company has decided to discount both the MX4 and MX4 Pro handsets in China, read on.
The 16GB variant of Meizu MX4 now costs only 1,499 Yuan ($242), while the 32GB variant is priced at 1,699 Yuan ($274). The MX4 Pro is a bit more expensive, as it was before the discount, but still incredibly affordable. The 16, 32 and 128GB variants of the Meizu MX4 Pro now cost 1,999 ($322), 2,199 ($355) and 2,599 Yuan ($419), respectively. If you live in China, you can now purchase both of these handsets through Meizu’s official website, Jingdong Mall or Suning. Meizu doesn’t sell their devices internationally, at least not officially, but you can get them via various resellers. It is possible that some of those resellers will also discount both of these devices following the discount in China, who knows.
The Meizu MX4 features a 5.36-inch 1920 x 1152 display along with 2GB of RAM and 16 or 32GB of internal storage. This handset is powered by MediaTek’s MT6595 octa-core processor, and ships with 20.7 and 2-megapixel cameras on its back and front, respectively. The MX4 Pro, on the other hand, comes sporting a 5.5-inch 2560 x 1536 IPS LCD display, 3GB of RAM and 16, 32 or 64GB of in-built storage. This device is powered by Samsung’s Exynos 5 Octa 5430 octa-core processor. The MX4 Pro offers 20.7 and 5-megapixel shooter on its back and front, and both of these devices ship with Meizu’s Flyme UI which is installed on top of Google’s Android operating system.
As a side note, Meizu will hold an event on June 2nd, and the company is expected to announce the M2 Note mid-ranger during the event. Regarding the MX4’s successor, the MX5, we’ve heard various rumors. Some rumors are suggesting that the handset will launch at the end of June, while other ones are saying that it won’t launch before September. Either way, we’ll keep you informed.
