A few weeks ago that we were hearing songs of sirens in the language of the Shaolin monks, and although we already knew that it was about to get the Meizu MX4 -rumored for September – we had to wait until today to see first hand all the information about the new flagship of the Chinese manufacturer.
Meizu teaches us a continuity terminal in its design lines, while listening to the respectable Chinese have raised the ante in hardware, which improves almost all the sections, and one exquisite construction on a metal chassis.
It is not that the guys from Meizu made it us easy a complicated week which will be full of presentations and new products, but at least the Meizu MX4 is one of those devices that likes to talk about.
A smartphone top in terms of design and materials
Meizu has not walked the branches, and its new MX4 wanted to be at the height of the best in terms of design and construction, leaving the bar very high in this sense.
We are talking about a terminal made of lathe to a quality aluminum chassis Aeronautics and magnesium, with rounded edges and an attractive, clean design, inevitably reminiscent of Apple.
Meizu boasts lightness and robustness added Gorilla Glass Crystal and protection against liquids and dust, and the truth that the terminal seems to have an exquisite construction in its 148 grams of weight, which will delight gourmets in terms of finishes in official images.
Also indicated 15:9 Meizu maintains its previous devices, curious to follow without wanting to adapt the format to 16:9 format, and the Chinese manufacturer boasts a liquid crystal with Nega technology that carries the dispersion of the fluid up to 30 micrometers.
The chosen chipset MediaTek, being one of the first range terminals is higher than for Taiwanese manufacturing hardware. In particular is of a MT6595 with eight cores in big architecture processor. LITLLE, four A17 more another four A7, running at a clock speed of 2.1 GHz.
The hardware platform is complemented by a GPU PowerVR Series 6 and 3 GB of RAM, and its power, there is no doubt with more than 46,000 points in the AnTuTu benchmarks which own Meizu has taught during the presentation.
A 3,100 mAh battery will give energy to the whole, which bet on it safe as to camera, premiering the sensor IMX220 Sony Exmor RS, with its resolution of 20.7 megapixels that the Japanese had jealously kept for their top Xperia.

Android 4.4 Flyme OS 4, caring for software aesthetically
Not only specification lives a high-end, so Meizu is glad to introduce ourselves its new owner Flyme OS 4 software, that will work on the basis of Android 4.4.2 KitKat adding value through a very well designed interface aesthetically.
Back we go to the palette of soft colors and flat and minimalist design, adding some extra common options in the customizations of the manufacturers.
You know that we are not very supporters of proprietary interfaces, but Meizu has wanted to be aesthetically distinguished again reminiscent to Apple, so we will have to accept it.
Meizu MX4, availability and prices
As usual, the presentations are not chosen by the manufacturer to announce availability and prices, although Meizu MX4 will soon come to China at a price that will appeal, surely to compete in the League of the Xiaomi Mi4. Speaks of prices between the 220 and 280 euros, with different models according to internal storage capacity: 16, 32, or 64 GB.
Of its international expansion, Meizu still has not spoken, so we will not wait for the moment that the MX4 arrives here in an official way. Those interested will have to look for it in online retailers or unofficial channels.
