Meizu M9 closes in on Android 4 with beta

Meizu signaled on Tuesday that it was getting close to bringing an official upgrade to Android 4.0 to its 2011 smartphone, the M9, by starting up beta testing. Along with its Chinese work, a posting at Meizu Me has opened a very limited number of slots for those who live elsewhere to get test firmware early. The candidacy system at least outside of China is based on subjective merit and more likely to go to experienced fans first.

Android 4.0 on the M9 may bring some interface elements, but Meizu's extensive customization through the Flyme UI makes it more likely that the improvements will come in the background, such as through performance boosts. Android 4.0 has already been on the M9 since a stock port of the OS around the MX's release.

Meizu hasn't given a definite schedule for when a finished, fully customized Android 4.0 upgrade will be available, but it will apply both to the M9 and the MX when it's ready.
