Meizu MX unveiled: dual-core Chinese wonder comes Jan 1st, 2012, sets the stage for a quad-core Meizu phone
Chinese phone maker Meizu has now officially lifted the cover off its next flagship: the Meizu MX. The handset will hit shelves on January 1st, just in time to entertain China throughout next year and it’s got the looks and internals to do so. Meizu, which borrows its first two letters fro the Chinese word for “dream,” claims to be a dreamphone indeed: with a 4-inch display with a resolution of 640x960 pixels, a 1.4GHz dual-core Samsung Exynos 4210 SoC and an 8-megapixel camera it’s definitely got the silicon muscle.

Designwise, it doesn’t look like other cheaper handsets from China - with some resemblance to the iPhone, the MX has got its own unique accents like the navigational buttons and the differently designed camera opening. It’s 0.41 inches (10.3mm) thick and features a second mic for noise cancellation.
When it comes to connectivity, the handset supports HSPA+ and 16GB of internal storage for all those downloads and your data. Initially, the MX will run on a uniquely skinned version of Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread, but Meizu CEO Jack Wong has already confirmed that an Ice Cream Sandwich update is set to arrive shortly after. The Meizu MX is priced at around $470 (2,999 CNY) off contract. Meizu has also floated talks about a quad-core MX coming later in the year, but that’s everything we know so far about it.
