Meizu takes on OnePlus with new online shop that sells the MX3 smartphone "without invitation"

Meizu takes on OnePlus with new online shop, MX3 smartphone available "without invitation"
China’s Meizu today launched an international online shop that allows customers from almost anywhere in the world to buy its MX3 flagship smartphone. The white model is currently out of stock, but the black one is available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB variants, for $399, $429, and $496, respectively. Free shipping and 12-month warranty are included. 

Meizu mentions that the MX3 can be yours “without invitation” - thus trying to poke fun at OnePlus, which is launching its CyanogenMod-based One smartphone via an invite system. To be frank, though, we’ll have to say that the features of the OnePlus One (which is newer and cheaper anyway) are superior to those of the MX3. Meizu’s handset offers a 5.1-inch display with an odd 1080 x 1800 pixels resolution, 8MP rear camera, Samsung’s Exynos 5 Octa 5410 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 2,400 mAh battery. The device runs a custom FlymeOS, which is based on Android Jelly Bean - but it will be updated to KitKat starting this month.

Later this year, Meizu should introduce the MX4, its next-generation flagship handset that reportedly features a 5.5-inch display with 1536 x 2560 pixels. Naturally, we’re expecting this to be sold via the new online shop, too. By the way, the shop is called Meizumart, and is accessible at the source link below.
