MX3 slated for September
Meizu has formally unveiled its latest flagship smartphone, the MX3, which promises to be one of the first to arrive with 128GB of storage. The Android 4.2 device centers around a 5.1-inch IPS display with 1800x1080 resolution, resulting in 415ppi density, along with the same eight-core Exynos Octa processor as Samsung's Galaxy S4 i9500, according to a specs list posted by PhoneArena.
Other hardware highlights include an eight-megapixel Sony camera sensor paired with a sapphire-protected f/2.0 lens. The company also promises an impressive audio experience thanks to a Wolfson audio chip, which handles amplification and ambient noise cancellation.
Meizu expects the MX3 to ship later this month, with prices starting at CNY 2,499 (~$408 USD) for the 16GB edition and topping out at CNY 3,999 (~$653 USD) for the 128GB model. Although the phone is geared for the Chinese market, a WCDMA variant will be supported in other regions.
