MeiZu MX Quad-Core announced, release set in June

We’ve recently covered the first quad-core smartphone to ever hit the Philippine market and some of our readers find that the feature-packed HTC One X’s price tag is a bit heavy on the wallet. We’re all wishing that the price will go down so we can also experience the difference of a quad-core smartphone. If you’re saving up for a new smartphone and wanted to go 4 cores (and not that brand conscious) then Meizu MX might be a very viable option that you might want to look at.

Meizu Technology Co. Ltd., a fairly young (just almost a decade old) smartphone manufacturer, is behind the recently unveiled Meizu MX that features the 1.5GHz quad-core 32nm HKMG Samsung Exynos chip that is said to be not only powerful but power-efficient as well (running Android 4.0.4 ICS).

At a glance, the Meizu MX’s design closely resembles that of the iPhone 4. It is equipped with a 4″ screen with 960 x 640 resolution which is also the same as the iPhone 4. Having a bigger screen with the same resolution has it effects, as the phone’s pixel density dropped to 292ppi. This was properly compensated though by the ASV display technology that aids the handset in producing a decent viewing experience even at a lower pixel density.

The unit features an 8MP camera with an f/2.2 aperture and BSI sensor that should give you detailed stills even in low-light condition. Being a quad-core smartphone, the camera is also capable of shooting 1080p HD clips at 30fps. The Meizu MX comes in two storage variant, 32 and 64Gb. This should make up for the lack of MicroSD card slot of the phone. It also boasts a future-friendly HSPA+ network that supports up to 21Mbps.

The newly announced phone will be available this June but rumored to only be available in China and Hong Kong. This shouldn’t be a problem because our local online retailers should be able to get their hands on these units without a sweat. The Meizu MX is priced at HKD3,099 (Php17,000+) for the 32GB version and HKD4,099 (Php 22,000+) for the 64GB.

    Let us not patronize Chinese made products, their products are of inferior quality and most of all THEY DON’T HAVE THE RIGHT TO LAY CLAIM ON OUR TERRITORIES…I REALLY HATE IT, THAT THE PHILIPPINES CANNOT DEFEND ITS ISLANDS FROM THIS GREEDY CHINESE. hanggang nganga na lang tayo…

      same here. i’m about to buy the new ainol aurora. it has good specs specifically with its new ips screen, and it’s very much affordable. but because of what they’re doing to us, i definitely won’t buy it anymore. i’ll just wait for the new samsung galaxy tab 2 7.0 instead…

    • sbap says:

      Alam mo naman siguro na majority ng branded stuff eh gawa sa china diba? like…. Apple products, and almost anything ranging from food, to clothing, to hardware etc.. Sa hirap ng Pilipinas ngayon, konti na nga lang makakapag afford ng basic necessities mamimili pa ba sila kung san gawa? Think realistically.

    Apple iphone knockdown.

  8. maico says:

    was about to buy ainol aurora too but nakita ko yung 7″ galaxy tab 2. pero ang tagal naman yata lumabas sa pilipinas nun, di na ako makapaghintay.

    • Turonbulaong says:

      Hi Redz,

      Yeah it seems like you’re one of the few who owns a Meizu phone here in the Philippines. I’m just curious about the build of the phone? How long have you used the phone if I may ask.

      Unfortunately, we’re yet to hear any news of this phone being launched here in our country. But if you’re really interested, there’s an online retail store that sells this product.


      Buy at this store at your own risk.
