The Meizu MX4 Pro to come with 4GB RAM and 32-Bit octa-core processor?

However, the processor specs respond to the Samsung Exynos 5430, which is a Cortex-A15/A7 based processor. You are much more likely to spot an octa-core big.LITTLE ARM V7A processor that's configured like that, instead of having an A17 core. So it could be that the spec sheet contains a typo.
phone are top-notch. The front camera is a 13MP unit, and the rear cam is a 20.7MP one. The phone will be available in 16, 32, and 64GB variants. We also have its dimensions , and they sound compact for a big-screen device - 5.62 x 2.9 x 0.31 inches (143 x 74.1 x 7.9mm). For reference, this is close to the LG G3's 5.76 x 2.94 x 0.35 inches (146.3 x 74.6 x 8.9 mm).
While we're yet to see how the amped-up Meizu MX 4 looks in reality, there's no doubt we're looking at a powerhouse of a smartphone. The launch shouldn't be far off, although getting it from China won't be much of a pleasure to those that don't like importing.

Isn't 3GB enough?

3gb will have to be enough, since 32bit will only have enough address space for it. You'll have 1gb sitting there doing nothing. Unless they use address extension, and in my experience that makes the system super unstable.

It surely is Meizu is just using it to garner more interest in their brand. Be warned though... of all the more reputable Chinese phones I've seen Meizu's got to have the worst attention to fine detail.

Even 2GB probably is enough But why not have more? It would allow for some "future proofing" Also for those curious with I believe with PAE enabled you can have 64 GB of Ram

You can have more, and I (of course) have never seen it enabled with ARM, but I've enabled it on X86 systems in order to use more ram, and disabled it after a short time - it made them unusably unstable.

Call me crazy, but high-end specs don't tend to impress me on Chinese handsets at all. Especially when they're using lower quality hardware components typically in display panel technology, mediocre camera modules, memory or slower flash memory. As well as bad software coding and inefficiencies. If I'm going to spend $300 or more, may as well spend a few hundred more on software and hardware that's more calibrated and optimized.

lol. The only problem being you literally have no idea what you're talking about. All of the biggest players in the chinese smartphone market: meizu, oppo, xiaomi, lenovo, huawei and ZTE are using exactly the same components as samsung, HTC, LG, Sony etc They are all using the best Qualcomm MTK or Samsung processors, Sony camera modules and samsung DDR ram, advanced magnesium and aluminium alloy engineered chassis', LG batteries, Sharp & JDI displays etc etc. Plus some Chinese companies' android software builds like Xiaomi's MIUI, meizu's Flyme and Oppos Color OS are arguably more feature rich and more stable/optimized than that of the larger korean, taiwanese and american players. Chinas biggest selling manufacturer is now a chinese company Xiaomi, that recently overtook samsung who are losing market share rapidly. In a few years there is a high possibility a large number of the top smartphone manufacturers worldwide will be homegrown chinese companies. Better get used to it buddy because they are rapidly expanding,

Well some believe having 2GB is enough but i would like to remark that even 4GB will be less in coming years as per the size of the apps and games are increasing even 2GB phone with on multitasking feels sluggish so it is highly recommended to have atleast 3GB.
