Engadget - We weren't expecting to hear anything about the Meizu MX so soon, but as always, CEO Jack Wong loves surprises. Earlier today, our main man quietly mentioned on his forum that his upcoming 4-inch Android phone will now be released in China at the end of September (around the same time as the next iPhone event?), meaning we won't have to wait till the end of the year to see all the goodies.
Chinese smartphone manufacturers are very much on the ascent, but it’s been a pretty mixed bag. Some have offered some truly exciting hardware to market (read: Nexus 6P) and others, well, not so much. Founded in 2003, Meizu is relatively new entrant on the scene, but the company knows how to make a nice piece of hardware.
Engadget - The Meizu MX 4-core is a decent quad-core device, but its limited availability outside China and horrendous battery life make it a tough sell for power users.
MIC Gadget - It’s been said before that Meizu may expand towards international markets by opening retail stores worldwide. If that’s the case, it would be a big leap forward for the Zhuhai-based company to sell their flagship Android phone — Meizu MX — to international users. However, it looks like some Chinese resellers are selling the company’s new quad core smartphone at hiked up prices on Amazon. Duh.
