Quad-core Meizu MX arriving in China on June 30th

Quad-core Meizu MX arriving in China on June 30th
We’ve talked about the impressive-looking Meizu MX Quad-core before; at one time it was expected to launch as the first phone to sport Samsung’s quad-core A9 Exynos CPU, but as the rumored May launch date slipped to June it was obviously beat out by the global launch of the Galaxy S III. Now we have official word that the device will ship on June 30th.

The device is available in multiple colors, and along with the four cores of Exynos goodness will ship with a four inch 960 x 640 display, an 8 megapixel camera, and either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage. The phone will also ship with Flyme 1.0, Meizu’s customer Android experience that will be running on top of Android 4.0. Meizu promises custom Flyme messaging apps and a “heavily improved camera app”.

While Meizu only plans to release the MX Quad-core in China, they are clearly producing first-rate hardware at this point, and if they find success in China they may be encouraged to bring their handsets to the rest of the world. Or with China now the largest smartphone market in the world, maybe they’ve decided they don’t need to.

oh come on, the front side looks literally the same as the iphone's, design-wise. The only thing missing is the home button.

Ok, ok I admit, I'm really deeply convinced now, that this phone looks nothing like the iphone (notice the sarcasm)...http://asset3.cbsistatic.com/cnwk.1d/i/tim/2012/01/24/Meizu_MX_35128025__02_610x458.jpg

Only an I-diot (Apple lover) would think this looks like. If you said the Galaxy SIII, you would have been believeable. Typical of Apple fans claiming credit spceially when none is due

What's the DPI of this thing?

Use the Pythagoras' Theorem and then divide by screen size, basically it's 288 pixels per inch.

That's an awesome phone but only if it were sold out of China.

super copy Chinese phone. It can't be sold outside China because it's illegal.

Yeah I think meizu should sell this phones only in china for the meantime. When the time comes that they already sold as many devices as the galaxy s2/3, note and iPhone that's the time that they already know what strategies to make to sell the phone. In china, I really can only see samsung and apple as the top smart phones owned by the consumers. It would be a waste if they would plan to sell on other countries while they can't even sell as much as in china itself.

If anything this looks like an Ipod Touch not an Iphone, Iphones are tiny,and are more rectangular than the beautiful cellphone shown here,not to mention that they have a glass back as well..
