Selfie heaven: the Meitu V4 and its 21MP front-facing camera is now official
It seems like it was another era when we used to tell you that a handset's front-facing camera was designed to take "self-portraits." Eventually, a whole new craze was launched and the word "selfie" was coined. Back in September, China's TENAA regulatory agency certified a selfie fanatic's ultimate phone, the Meitu V4. The unit's 21MP front-facing camera not only allows you to take outstanding selfies, it also can provide your Periscope audience with a sharper image of what you are streaming to them.

Today, the Meitu V4 was officially unveiled by the manufacturer. The first question you probably have is about the rear camera. Yes, the shooter that graces the back of the phone also weighs in at 21MP. The handset is equipped with a 5-inch AMOLED display, carrying a 1080 x 1920 resolution. Under the hood is the MediaTek MT6795 SoC. This is a true octa-core CPU with eight Cortex-A53 cores inside. The PowerVR G6200 GPU handles graphics. 3GB of RAM is aboard, along with 64GB of internal memory. Pre-installed on the device is Android 5.1, with MeiOS2.5 running on top.

The Meitu V4 supports 4G LTE connectivity, and will be offered in white with pink accents, light turquoise, and pink. The design is called a "double V" and the top and bottom of the device is made of metal. The phone is priced at the equivalent of $548 USD.

The manufacturer also introduced an updated version of its flagship phone. The Meitu V4s features a 4.7-inch screen with a 720 x 1280 resolution. That works out to a 312ppi pixel density. The MediaTekMT6752 SoC is under the hood, with 3GB of RAM inside. The device offers 64GB of internal storage. Both back and front cameras are 13MP with an f/2.0 aperture, and a 2160mAh battery keeps the lights on. Android 4.4 is pre-installed with MeiOS2 on top. This model is priced at the equivalent of $376 USD.


Thanks for the tip!

I know right? The Nexus P ffc camera at 8MP simply blows away the competition! They should be marketing it for its selfie prowess.

Anyhoo, these Meitu phones above are actually a refreshingly new and attractive design for phones that are all looking like clones of one another.
