Meizu MX4 could have two versions, one with a 1536 x 2560 pixel display and a cheaper 1080p one
China’s Meizu entered the smartphone market some years ago with a handset that was nothing more than an iPhone clone.

Things have changed since then, and now Meizu is in the position to become one of the world’s first to launch a smartphone with a 1536 x 2560 pixel display.

As we reported at the start of December, Meizu CEO J. Wang already talked about the company’s upcoming handset, saying that it might be called Meizu MX4G, or simply MX4. He also said that the smartphone would have a 5.5 inch screen with 1536 x 2560 pixels - that’s higher than the screen resolution the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the LG G3 are rumored to offer (1440 x 2560 pixels, meaning Quad HD).

We’re now hearing that the Meizu MX4 could have a Pro version (sporting the alleged 5.5 inch, 1536 x 2560 pixel screen), as well as a version aimed at the mid-range market. The latter may feature a 5 inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels and an octa-core MediaTek processor. Both models should support LTE.

Last week, Meizu announced that it would start selling smartphones in the US in 2014. It didn’t specifically say what handsets it’s planning to release Stateside, but the MX4 could be among them. Sure enough, we first have to wait until the new smartphone will be officially announced. Unfortunately, at the moment there is no word on when this will happen.

I wish cellphone makers could stop in this pixel density wars and make a customization enable phones just like our PC. We can change the processor and gpu that would be really great.

1080p is 2k.... And while 720p and 1080p are perfect for your eyes, others welcome more perfection with the 2.5K/1440p displays.

What's the point of a run of the mill Chinese manufacture making a high res screen? It's probably going to be poorly optimized for efficiency and have terrible color reproduction.

Where's my microscope glasses when you need 'em? or should i stick my face to the screen to see the pixels?

Why would you want to see the individual pixels? It's really about increasing the overall sharpness and clarity of the phone, not to try and spot the pixels.
