Companies are racing to use the latest quad core chip on their smartphones and we have heard many big brands started to introduced their phones. Those includes LG, Samsung, Huawei, and so on. However, it appears that the first one to roll it out is Meizu from China.
Recently, they’ve unleashed their monster from the lab, which is their flagship Android phone dubbed as Meizu MX Quad-core smartphone that will be powered by Cortex-A9-based 32nm HKMG (High-K Metal Gate) quad core Samsung Exynos chip. However, the company haven’t revealed the detail of the CPU and which model they are using on this MX Quad-core. According to the claims, their CPU could save up to 20-percent of energy when operating, and it will come with 1,700mAh battery. It’s interesting to see how long this phone can last, but we’ll have to wait until June for someone to handons and benchmark it out.
The base model of Meizu MX Quad-core is going to get 32GB of storage, but no microSD card slot will come along for expansion. It also will be priced cheaper to cover the shortfall. According to the prices listed at their PR, the 32GB model of MX Quad-core is going to be price at the same level of 16GB MX dual-core!
Price wise, Meizu MX Quad core will hit the store for ¥2,999 (US$480 – unsubsidized) in China, or HK$3,099 (US$400) in Hong Kong. The company will also reduce the price of the original MX phone to ¥2,399 (US$380) and HK$2,599 (US$335) from today onwards.
