Meizu steps into the next generation of smartphones with the MX2

The Chinese based smartphone company Meizu announced its new latest-gen smartphone; the MX2. Try to ignore its iClone-ish looks, this phone is something all on its own. Packing a monster 1.6GHz quad core MX5S processor, 2 gigabytes of RAM, up to 64GB in storage, 8MP back-illuminated camera, and a 4.4-inch edge-to-edge HD display. With these kinds of specs, this Android 4.1 device places itself up there with the likes of the HTC DROID DNA, Samsung Galaxy S IIIGalaxy Note II, and the HTX One X+.

On the software side of things, the phone runs Meizu’s Flyme 2.0 skin on top of Android 4.1 Jellybean. The latest version of Flyme sports a complete re-skin of Android, a specialized camera app, as well as CABC brightness control for the display that can boost your battery life up to 50%. Other specs include retina-level 347 PPI pixel density, 10.2mm thick, 1800 mAh battery, and HSPA+ connectivity. No word on a launch date yet, but dont expect it to come stateside anytime soon.
