Meizu MX2 goes official: 4.4-inch screen and 1.6GHz quad-core chip wrapped in a Nexus 4-like price tag
First, the screen on the Meizu MX2 looks gorgeous on paper. It has a pixel density of 347ppi, which means that it is more detailed than the one on the Nexus 4. Not just that, it comes with a very thin 3.15mm bezel. That, combined with the 4.4-inch screen size, should make it much more comfortable to hold than other 4.7-inch devices.
When it comes to the silicon inside it, Meizu brings a custom MX5S chip. The processor in it is based on the Cortex A9 architecture, and is clocked at 1.6GHz. There is 2GB of RAM on board as well. The camera on the MX2 is a backside-illuminated 8-megapixel f/2.4 unit.
Meizu is running its custom Flyme 2.0 skin on top of Android Jelly Bean. Best of all, the operating system comes pre-rooted, saving you a pain and a trip to XDA Devs.
And on to the price, there are three versions of the device. The Meizu MX2 starts from a 16GB version priced at 2,499 yuan ($400), and then you have a 32GB one (selling for $480), and a 64GB one for $640. The device will arrive in China by mid-December. How do you like it?
