Android 4.4 KitKat updates for Meizu MX3 and MX2 to be launched this month

Meizu is reportedly getting ready to update its MX3 (pictured above) and MX2 smartphones to Android 4.4 KitKat. The two devices should receive the update starting April 28.

While the MX3 is the Chinese company’s current flagship smartphone, and users were expecting it to get the latest software anyway, the MX2 was introduced in late 2012 - so it’s great that Meizu is committed to bringing KitKat to it.

We should note that both the MX3 and MX2 come with Meizu’s own FlyMe UI, so they don’t offer a vanilla Android experience. The two handsets can be found in lots of markets around the world (usually being sold unlocked).

As a reminder, Meizu said that an LTE-capable variant of the MX3 would be officially released in the US in the third quarter of the year. Later this year, Meizu should also start selling Ubuntu-based smartphones.
