Remember Meizu? These guys were all the rage before Xiaomi began its own line of Apple gear clones. We kid, but we haven't been hearing from Meizu for a while, and all of a sudden the MX4 starts making the rounds, hinted for a September 2nd unveiling, about a week before the new iPhone 6 is supposed to land. Will it steal Apple's thunder in Asia amongst the fierce competition to do the same these days? You be the judge, as a few photos of the Meizu MX4 leaked out, and the rounded handset is said to sport a metal chassis to boot.
Two versions of the MX4 are expected. A "Pro" model is believed to carry a 5.5 inch glass with an unusual 1536 x 2560 pixel resolution. Consider that the Meizu MX3 features resolution of 1080 x 1800, and you can see that such unusual resolution figures are not new to the manufacturer. The "Pro" could feature an Exynos 5433 under the hood, 3GB of RAM inside, and back and front-facing cameras of 20.7MP and 8MP respectively.
The standard model, likely the one seen below, is expected to feature a 5 inch screen with resolution of 1080 x 1920, with an Exynos 5430 running the show. The same 3GB of RAM and camera specs are believed to be on this model, which could be priced at $406 USD. We should know much more, include availability, official pricing, and complete specs, following the event. Meizu's event will be taking place at 2:30am EDT, so get your alarm clocks ready.
