Meizu MX announced, will officially be the first to use the quad-core Exynos A9 CPU?
Yesterday Chinese smartphone manufacturer Meizu officially announced the Meizu MX quad-core smartphone, which they say will be the world debut of Samsung’s quad-core A9 Exynos CPU. The A9 has undergone a die-shrink to 32nm, allowing the CPU to be faster and use less battery life (regardless of what Stephen Elop thinks).

The Meizu MX has been rumored since late 2011, and it sure looks like a sweet piece of kit – the screen resolution comes in at a very decent 292 PPI – a bit below the iPhone 4/4S and the Galaxy Nexus, but still a very respectable number. It also promises an 8 megapixel BSI camera with an f/2.2 lens aperture that excels in low-light conditions, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. And if the marketing material is anything to go by, it looks like it will launch in a wide array of pastel colors.

Sadly the phone will only retail in China, but it tells us something about the Galaxy SIII – assuming the Meizu is correct, when their phone launches in June it will be the first phone to rock Samsung’s new line of quad-core CPUs…the same CPUs expected to launch in Samsung’s upcoming flagship. So while we expect the Galaxy SIII to be announced in early May, it appears the handset may not launch until sometime in June.

Also, we have to say that Meizu appears to be fully capable of making some very sexy smartphones.

I guess this means the 4212 won't be exclusive to just Samsung devices. Looking forward to seeing the benchmarks for the Meizu MX.

Exynos was never exclusive to samsung devices. It was shown in some dev board long before it was released in a samsung product

Call me a freak if you want, but isn´t the 4212 a dual core CPU? The same as the 4210 but with a die-shrink to 32 nm. Including same old Mali-400 as GPU.
As far as I´m aware the quad core is the 4412 and includes new GPU. Please Scott, if I´m right correct that. If I´m not just ignore my post.
PS: Checked the source link and I´m right: at least in 4 places refers to 4412 chipset. Please correct that.

Read source...they haven't mentioned 4212 any where just this "...The MX Quad-core uses a power efficient quad-core Exynos A9 CPU with industry-leading 32 nm HKMG technology..."

I was referring to the Droid-life one, there they mention the 4412.

They did mention 4212. "Samsung’s quad-core A9 CPUs, specifically the Exynos 4212."
That is incorrect.

@ Tyler Yeah, your right. I didn't notice, until you mentioned it.

Cmon exynos! You got a dragon need to be slayed. A snap one. And also kal-el. His weakness is kryptonite.
