Other than that, you can expect the original specs mentioned, a 4-inch qHD res display, 8mp camera, 1700 mAh battery all wrapped up in MEIZU’s “Flyme OS UI” over Android ICS 4.0. The device will come in both 32 GB and 64 GB for $425 USD and $630 USD respectively. Check out the presser after the break for more info and feel free to leave a comment or two below.
