So far, Western consumers have been rather distrustful of Chinese smartphones, mistakenly believing it to be of lower quality. The truth turns out to be quite different, and many models have long since caught up with branded products from Japan, the United States or South Korea, and have often surpassed them, as exemplified by the Meizu MX4.
Meizu is a company often referred to as “Chinese Apple”, which in less than four years has become a serious player in the smartphone market, and its sales results will certainly surprise even California executives, as new phones often sell out in just a few minutes.
It is possible that similarly will also with the latest Meizu model, MX4, which has been rumored for some time. The producer finally decided to show off the new device during the Beijing show, and we got to know his technical specifications, and this is very interesting.
The MX4 has a 5.36-inch touch screen display in 15: 9 aspect ratio, displaying 1920 x 1152 pixels at 418 PPI resolution.
Its heart is the 8-core MediaTek MT6595 processor using the big architecture.LITTLE, therefore, consisting of four ARM Cortex-A17 cores and four Cortex-A7 cores. The processor is supported by the PowerVR Series 6 graphics unit. Up to 3 GB of RAM as well as 16 GB to 64 GB of usable memory depending on the model. The dimensions of the phone are 75.2 x 144 x 7.9 mm and the weight is 147 grams.
The manufacturer ensures that the graphics unit is 88 percent faster than the previous GPU, the CPU is 87 percent more efficient, and the RAM is 200 percent faster.
The phone also features a 20.7-megapixel Sony sensor (IMX 200, 1 / 2.3 CMOS) with dual LED and the ability to record movies in 4K resolution. A 5 megapixel camera was installed on the front. There is also a GPS, GLONASS, compass, and dual band Wi-Fi working at 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz.
As far as software is concerned, MX4 has Android 4.4.4 installed, as well as its own Flyme OS 4.0, which is the parent platform. The system has been heavily redesigned and looks much better today. The manufacturer has changed the user interface, including over 1000 app icons, hundreds of notification icons, and 500 icons for the most popular websites. The system is not only safer, but it also has several additional options such as voice assistant and reading center with article recommendations. The manufacturer also adds 40 TB of space in the cloud to the user files.
The Meizu MX4 will be available from September 20 and will be available in gray, white and gold, with 16GB, 32GB and 64GB of storage for $ 292, $ 325 and $ 390, respectively.
