Things have changed since then, and now Meizu is in the position to become one of the world’s first to launch a smartphone with a 1536 x 2560 pixel display.
As we reported at the start of December, Meizu CEO J. Wang already talked about the company’s upcoming handset, saying that it might be called Meizu MX4G, or simply MX4. He also said that the smartphone would have a 5.5 inch screen with 1536 x 2560 pixels - that’s higher than the screen resolution the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the LG G3 are rumored to offer (1440 x 2560 pixels, meaning Quad HD).
We’re now hearing that the Meizu MX4 could have a Pro version (sporting the alleged 5.5 inch, 1536 x 2560 pixel screen), as well as a version aimed at the mid-range market. The latter may feature a 5 inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels and an octa-core MediaTek processor. Both models should support LTE.
Last week, Meizu announced that it would start selling smartphones in the US in 2014. It didn’t specifically say what handsets it’s planning to release Stateside, but the MX4 could be among them. Sure enough, we first have to wait until the new smartphone will be officially announced. Unfortunately, at the moment there is no word on when this will happen.
