Meizu MX3 to be officially released in the US in Q3
China-based Meizu first revealed its intentions to enter the US smartphone market in December 2013, without providing specific details. Today at CES 2014, the company announced that it’s planning to officially release its MX3 handset in the US starting the third quarter of the year (July - September). Of course, by that time, customers will have many other new high-end smartphones to choose from. We find it hard to believe that Meizu can be successful in the US, but maybe the company will sell the MX3 for an unbelievably low price to prove us wrong. For the moment, Meizu didn’t disclose how much it’s going to ask for the device, and neither if any American carrier was interested in offering it.

Those who haven’t heard about the Meizu MX3 must know that the handset runs FlyMe 3.0, an OS based on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. The rest of its features are on the high-end side, including a 5.1-inch 1080p display, octa-core Samsung Exynos 5410 processor, 2MP front-facing camera, 8MP rear camera, 2GB of RAM, 16GB to 128GB of internal memory (depending on model), and a 2,400 mAh battery. However, the smartphone does not have LTE connectivity.

You can see official press photos of the MX3 in the slideshow below, alongside a table comparing specs between this handset and other four popular smartphones: Samsung Galaxy S4, Apple iPhone 5S, Huawei Ascend P6, and Xiaomi Mi3.

In addition to planning a US release of the MX3, Meizu might also work on a Ubuntu-based smartphone. This, however, hasn't been officially confirmed.
