Chinese manufacturer Meizu has officially lifted the lid on its MX smartphone. Before you get all hot and bothered, this is the dual-core 16GB model, not the 32GB quad-core beast. Still sounds pretty sweet though.
Meizu takes the first two letters for the Chinese word for “dream”, or “meng xiang”, and promises that the MX is “a dream phone in all its senses”. I love it when you talk dirty, Meizu.
The 16GB Meizu MX boasts a 4.3in display (292 PPI), dual-core 1.4GHz processor, 1GB RAM, an 8MP camera with 1080p 30fps video capture, and a modest 0.3MP webcam up front.
Meizu will initially ship the MX with a sexily customised version of Android 2.3.5 (Gingerbread), however an update to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) is expected in due course.
Folks in China will be able to grab the Meizu MX from January 1, priced 2,999 CNY. That’s around £300 in the Queen’s cash.
As for a UK release, well, we won’t hold our Mobo-breath, however Meizu reveals that it’s “taking its first steps into the international market”. Stay tuned…
