Screenshots of Meizu's upcoming Flyme OS leak, confirm a Quad HD-equipped version of the Meizu MX4
When Meizu teased us about its upcoming “stunning new OS” some days ago, we could think about nothing else but Ubuntu Touch, which will purportedly power at least one device of the China-based manufacturer by the end of the year. There was another not-so-likely possibility, though – the teased OS is Flyme OS, Meizu's home-brewed variation on Android. The fourth generation of the user interface will debut alongside the Meizu MX4 forerunner (which might come in no more or less than 4 versions), both of which will probably be unveiled pretty soon, on September 2.

The MX4 doesn't have the reputation of being camera-shy, but we can say the same for Flyme OS as well. We just got hold of some leaked screenshots that showcase the minimalistic design of its mainly flat user interface. Similar to Huawei's EMUI 3.0, screenshots from which also leaked multiple times over the past few days, Flyme OS 4.0 will employ circular-shaped interface elements and a modest amount of transparency here or there. Then again, similar to Xiaomi's upcoming MIUI 6, Meizu's OS skin will boast white, iOS-like looks throughout its interface.

Apart from revealing the cosmetic appearance, the leaked screenshots also seemingly confirm that at least one of the reportedly four MX4 versions will indeed sport a QuadHD display. A screenshot that is purportedly taken on the Meizu MX4 Pro, which will probably be one of the top-end variations of the flagship, has a resolution of 1536 x 2502 pixels. There's no word on the display size of the other MX4 iterations, which the rumor mill calls the Meizu MX4 Mini, the Meizu MX4 Standard, and a mysterious fourth one, but we've heard before that the regular (Standard) MX4 will also sport such a high-res screen at its front.

Common, blame the manufacturers for following the "clean-looking UI" trend, I see no problems of the Chinese manufacturers following it as well. If you think they copied it, I gotta say that they copied it beautifully.

Just enjoy the damn phone.

Okay. Let's put this in a different perspective. This phone would be just right for migrating iPhone users, who wants to embrace android, however afraid of how different android is compared to iOS. Should they get a device like this, they'll feel right at home with the iOS like iconography and Flat UI design. Also, this device would be good for customers who likes the beautiful design of iOS UI, but wants the versatility and customizable nature of android.
You could say this is... The best of both worlds.
