Normally the western world wouldn’t pay too much attention to Chinese manufacturer Meizu, as its wares are unlikely to wander far beyond the Chinese border.
However, the 32GB Meizu MX will be one of the world's first quad-core smartphones, which kinda makes it worth talking about, no?
We first heard about the Meizu MX a couple of months ago. The 16GB model is dual-core, but the 32GB variant rocks a Cortex A9 quad-core processor.
Other rumoured specs include a 4.3in qHD display with 540x960 resolution, and a 5MP/1.3MP camera combo. Admittedly we just made that last one up, and we wouldn’t be surprised if it weighed in with 8MP.
Now the Meizu MX has popped up in a couple of newly leaked photgraphs, and – to be quite frank – they’re absolutely godawful. The shots have intentionally been obscured; resultantly one is revealed in stunning block-o-vision, while the other has had several sections surgically removed.
There are a couple of things to note from the pics, however. The home button appears to have been replaced by an optical trackpad, and the capacitive buttons are sensitive to orientation.
Rumour is that the 16GB model will touch down before the end of the year, with the 32GB offering following early next year.
