Meizu MX smartphone official: Pentaband HSPA+ and 1.4GHz dualcore

Meizu MX smartphone official: Pentaband HSPA+ and 1.4GHz dualcore

Chinese electronics manufacturer Meizu has finally unveiled its next flagship Meizu MX smartphone, though it's not quite the speed-demon we were originally expecting. A dual-core version running a 1.4GHz Samsung Exynos 4210 chip will arrive before the previously-spotted quad-core version, the faster model not expected to arrive until next year, going on sale in China on New Year's Day. What does MX stand for? There's actually a special reason for such a naming convention, since it actually borrows first two letters from the Chinese characters for the word “dream,” or “meng xiang”. And that's most likely what Meizu hopes it will be; China's dream phone of the year.

Meizu M8 takes on iPhone in WiFi web browsing video test

The Meizu M8 may be a dead-ringer for the iPhone's physical and GUI design, but is it still a decent handset in its own right?  We've already seen one review, now Chinese site Zol.com.cn has put the M8 through its paces in what most owners will be using it for: full-screen web surfing.  Can the M8 render pages as quickly as Apple's smartphone?

Meizu M8 iPhone-clone gets reviewed

Meizu M8 iPhone-clone gets reviewed

First the unboxing, now the review.  Meizu's M8 wannabe-iPhone still isn't quite within the grasp of buyers, but IT168 have reviewed an early sample and, despite the delay, come away impressed.  It might never have been blessed by Steve Jobs, but the 3.4-inch touchscreen handset - with a 3.2-megapixel camera and either 8 or 16GB of onboard memory - seems to have its own charms.

Meizu M8 unboxed

Meizu's M8 cellphone is growing to be something of a legend: ostensibly an iPhone clone, a fact hotly disputed by Meizu themselves, its arduous journey to market has taken the best part of a year.  Now, PConline have unboxed what we're told is the final retail packaging, in preparation for the M8's mass production on December 8th.

Meizu M8 – no, of course it doesn’t look like an iPhone…

Meizu M8 – no, of course it doesn’t look like an iPhone…

So the rep from Meizu, much like the company as a whole, continues to profess their design didn’t come from the iPhone, that their design was completed some time towards the end of 2006, well before the iPhone was released. They still don’t mention anything about the software though, which is almost definitely stolen from Apple.

Meizu M8 MiniOne hitting stateside for CES

Meizu M8 MiniOne hitting stateside for CES

In case you’ve forgotten, the M8 is the device that works like an iPhone, now looks like an iPod Touch. It also has storage capacities from like 2GB all the way up to 16GB, and I think it even has 3G, the stats aren’t really set in stone yet so it’s hard to tell.

Personally, I’m cool with a device that’s just close to the iPhone, sure, it might piss some people off, but I’d be really cool with it if when it lands it does have 3G, preferably EV-DO, but that’s just me. Anyways, Meizu will apparently be showing off the device in January at CES and then plans to begin selling it stateside by February.

Meizu M7 is supposed to be iPod Touch killer

Meizu M7 is supposed to be iPod Touch killer

When will Apple, or more precisely its competitors, ever stop. The iPod came out so long ago, and even to this day it’s the bar with which you have to compete, every new MP3 player that comes out is an iPod killer. There is no Zune killer (maybe because it did a pretty good job on its own) there isn’t a Sansa killer, only a bunch of iPod killers.

Well that’s the goal of the Meizu M7, to be the iPod Touch Killer. The specs include a 2.81” touch screen at 480x288 pixels with a 15:9 ratio. The actual device dimensions are 89x48x7.3 millimeters. It can play H.264 at 720x480 a 30fps via its TV out port.
