The MX4 Pro is Meizu’s newest superphone

meizu-mx4-pro

Chinese phone manufacturer Meizu has just announced and detailed its latest flagship superphone, the MX4 Pro, with a 2K+ display and “Retina Sound.”

Much like some of its biggest competitors, Meizu is taking a new approach to its lineup offering two similar yet wildly different handsets under the same family name. The MX4 Pro is the newest addition to the MX4 family, with specs that really earn that Pro title. Aside from the horrendously named 2K+ display and Retina Sound, the MX4 Pro features:

  • 5.5-inch 2560 x 1536 display (“better than normal 2K”)
  • Octa-core Exynos 5430 processor
  • Mali T628 MP6 GPU
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 20.7-megapixel Sony IMX220 Exmor RS rear camera
  • 5-megapixel front-facing camera
  • Up to 64GB interanal storage
  • 3350mAh battery
  • Retina Sound with patented passive filter technology
  • One touch sapphire finger print scanner
  • Android 4.4

As for the price of the Meizu MX4 Pro, it starts at the equivalent of around $410 in China and will be released on December 6. The Meizu MX4 is undeniably an impressive piece of hardware, but at $410 it sits up with the One Plus One as one of the best deals in smartphones today. Unfortunately no international release information was made available today for the MX4 Pro, but this is one device we wouldn’t mind seeing made available in the rest of the world. What do you think of the Meizu MX4 Pro?

    Retina sound? Sound so good, you can see it.

    Always receptive to interesting innovative smartphones, my only concern is the mobile OS used.

    It’s Android alright, but why not the latest Android Lollipop?

    Producers should be aware that no matter how good their hardware specifications are, it’s eventually their aftersales support that matters. These primarily translate into how often their OTA updates of the latest Android versions are.

    So is Meizu any good in this? Can they match all the top brands makers like HTC, Samsung, Sony, LG, etc. Or are these Chinese smartphone producers merely out to produce a one-time smartphone that gets obsolete the moment it’s sold.

      Meizu has been around for a while. They used to produce an iPhone (iPhone 2 era) alternative that beat the iOS device in specs and usability. The Meizu came with a removable battery and expandable storage. Their devices are amazingly beautiful and always top of the line. And cheap for all. You can still see the iPhone design inspirations throughout the external design. They have been working hard to get noticed outside of China. I hope it works out for them.

      Meizu is using Flyme OS, which is built on Andorid and will definitely updated following Lollipop. Like its peers in China, such as Xiaomi, Chinese smartphone manufactories are not content with making a hardware, they all striving to build a platform like ios.

    Superphone? Is it a little exaggerate? Although it is very well in many aspects. http://www.minimalandroid.com/meizu-mx4-pro-compared-with-huawei-mate-7/

      I admit that this phone has the top configuration. It is a powerful competitor for xiaomi phone.

      • koobee

        I feel many of Meizu has lagged behind xiaomi.

    The most complete specs list I have ever seen on a phone to date. Easy competitor to the Note 4 and Nexus 6 and who knows maybe better hmmm. With a phone that nice, they might not need the US market to make good sales and that sucks for us here in the US
