The Meizu MX4 was announced yesterday and made available for pre-order in China. The handset is powered by MediaTek's octa-core MT6595 and it seems it has no problem running circles around current flagships, commonly equipped with a Snapdragon 801. Of course, this could change with the next wave of bleeding-edge-tech smartphones, but Meizu has some time to enjoy its crown. Furthermore, for a phone that can be bought in China for ~$20 less than the current king of the region – Xiaomi's Mi4, the MX4 not only packs a lot of punch, but has the looks to boot, with ultra-thin bezels, a 75.5% screen-to-body ratio, and a metallic body. Here's hoping that Meizu decide to release it to western markets and still manage to keep its price tag tasty-low.
