Meizu announces MX4 Pro smartphone
The Chinese smartphone maker Meizu has announced an upgraded version of its MX4 smartphone, which not surprisingly carries the MX4 Pro brand name. The new device is bigger that the MX4 and carries a larger display, higher resolution and a few more changes. In particular it measures 150.1 x 77 x 9.0 mm and weighs 158 grams.
Here’s what the new MX4 Pro smartphone brings to the table – a larger 5.5-inch display at 2560 x 1536 pixels that is protected by Gorilla Glass 3, an 8-core Samsung Exynos 5430 processor, 3 GB of RAM and 16/32/64 GB of internal memory. However, the main camera stays the same as in the MX4, which means you get the familiar Sony Exmor RS sensor at 20.7 MP. The front camera is different, though – it is based on an OM OV5693 sensor at 5 MP instead of the 2 MP camera used in the MX4 smartphone. Again, unlike the regular MX4, the MX4 Pro has a fingerprint scanner at 508 ppi, hidden under sapphire glass.
There’s more, though – apart from the aforementioned specs the MX4 Pro comes with ESS ES9018K2M sound and TI OPA1612 speakers, which means that the new Meizu smartphone will be able to treat its owners with high quality sound. The device also has 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and a metallic chassis. A powerful 3350 mAh battery provides energy to the device.
Despite its premium specs, the Meizu MX4 Pro is not as expensive as it may seem. The device costs USD 410 (16 GB), USD 440 (32 GB) and USD 505 (64 GB), depending on the capacity of the internal memory. The first MX4 Pro smartphones will be on market on December 6 this year.
