Meizu MX4 caught in the wild, ultra-thin bezels visible

The long-rumored Meizu MX4 today appeared in a photo for the very first time, this allowing us to see that the handset has very thin bezels - just as previously reported.

Published by Chinese website IT Home, said photo shows a white Meizu MX4. It’s said that the smartphone will have several versions, including one featuring a 5.5-inch display with 1536 x 2560 pixels, and one sporting a smaller, 5-inch screen with 1080 x 1800 pixels (allegedly, this is the one that’s pictured here). 

On the software side, we could see a Meizu MX4 running Flyme OS (which is based on Android), and another model possibly running Ubuntu Touch. We’re expecting the latter to be available internationally - although, of course, nothing's confirmed at this point. 

IT Home has it that the MX4 will be released in early September. Prices for the handset might start at about $320 - thus, the MX4 might give Xiaomi’s Mi4 a run for its money. Just like the Mi4, the MX4 should offer plenty of high-end features. Besides high-resolution screens, Meizu’s new flagship phone will reportedly come with 3 GB of RAM, a rear camera of at least 16 MP, and an 8 MP front-facing camera.

Almost looks like it's been stepped on and its guts splayed out some. After you pointing irregular bezels out of course or I would have missed it altogether. Good catch too, you and Papps today.

Also the top and bottom bezels are still big IMO those are more important than the sides

What were they think with that 1800x1080 display? A iPhone-esque (original) 4:3 while being wide? And apart from slim bezels it looks so ripoff

Their current MX3 has the same resolution... It's a 15:9 screen so it's not as tall as a 16:9 screen (or a bit wider, depends on how you look at it).

Do any Chinese company come up with original designs of their own or do they all just copy Apple.

Every design and innovation is build on each other. Ford 4 wheel car design is still being till today. And the true can be said about the flat screen TVs, microwave ovens, toaster and wrist watches... Why should smartphone be treated any different? If some one could come up with a better design. Use it!

The design is different from iPhone, iPhone has much thicker bezel. Just saying.

It looks more like a Galaxy Note but still can be distinguishable. It's body is far to big and its width is also fatter than the iphone. The Home button doesn't even look like an iphone button even though it's rounded. Come on people, don't act as if every Asian man look the same and every White man look the same.

All these clowns screaming copy are just ignorant ones who have no clue of Chinese manufactures or their flagships phones for past 2 years, nor their OS. For those who have been following Chinese phones, they can clearly see it as simply a evolution from their past designs.
