As expected, Meizu officially unveiled its new smartphone MX2 in China. The device keeps its impressive (read “borrowed”) look while the specs are better than ever. The Meizu MX2 sports a rather unusual 4.4-inch screen with resolution of 1280×800 pixels and a narrow 3.15 mm bezel. In addition, it also comes with a quad-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz, 2GB of RAM, 8-megapixel BSI camera on the back, 720p-capable front-facing one, HSPA and Wi-Fi connectivity, as well as 16, 32 or 64 GB of built-in storage. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is running the show out of box, with Meizu’s own Flyme 2.0 singing on top.
When it comes to availability, the MX2 will start selling in China in mid-December: 16GB model will go for 2,499 yuan (about $402), 32GB one for 2,999 yuan ($482), while the most expensive 64GB version will sell for 3,999 yuan ($643). Again, we’ve no information whether Meizu will ever get to bring its baby to the Western hemisphere.
