Meizu MX with quad-core CPU due in May?
The quad-core version of the Meizu MX smartphone won't be coming to the Chinese market until May of next year, the company's boss Jack Wong revealed on the Meizu BBS forum board. That's a lot later than originally expected, though that unofficial launch date has come and gone. When it does arrive, however, Android 4.0 should be onboard, along with Meizu's Flyme user interface.
The quad-core chip is expected to be Samsung's Exynos 4412, though this is not yet official. It would be rated at 1.5GHz. Other specs of the quad-core MX, shared by the dual-core version due out at the start of the new year, include a 4.3-inch, 640x960 touchscreen display and a 0.39-inch thickness. There would also be Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, and an eight-megapixel rear camera onboard. It's expected to cost ¥4,999 (about $780).
