Remember a few days ago when the Meizu MX3 made its first appearance through a leak? Well, the device is now official! Meizu has just made the announcement of the powerful beast that threatens the current Android top dogs with its top-tier specs and attractive design.
The all-new MX3 sports the mighty Exynos 5 Octa processor that’s employed into the Samsung Galaxy S4 i9500 variant. The A15 cores are clocked at 1,6GHz, while the low-powered A7 ones run at 1,2GHz. Needless to say, the silicon is one of the best in the class and offers a great experience. The other specs include 2GB RAM, 5.1-inch display of weird 1800×1080 pixels resolution, Sony 8MP camera sensor, 2MP front-facing shooter, Wolfson audio chip and of course, Android 4.2 Jellybean underneath Flyme OS 3.0. The battery is quite large of 2400mAh, promising 9 hours of 3G browsing, 10 hours of Wi-Fi surfing or 7 hours of watching 1080p movies.
Speaking of the operating system, the new Flyme OS refreshes the dated Flyme 2. Hence, Meizu boasts that Flyme 3 brings 324 updated interactions and 1579 new visual features. It has the modern flat look to it, which is really appealing. All in all, the OS of the MX3 is a nice change from the somewhat monotonous approaches of other companies.
Meizu MX3 will be offered in four storage versions and a handful of color variants. The storage options are 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB respectively. The price starts at $410 and ends at $650 for the largest storage option. The question regarding worldwide availability is yet to be discussed.
