When I first saw the video below the first thing that crossed my mind was “why aren’t other smartphones looking like this?” The China-based company of Meizu has hit the road with products that were copying Apple’s iPhone and new, Meizu brings a smartphone with a design that would even make Apple’s Jony Ive jealous. We are talking about Meizu MX2, a handset that received a hands-on video with PSY’s Gangam Style in the background.
Meizu MX2 brings the design we wanted for any high-end smartphone on the market: very thin edges, almost edge-to-edge display, all in an elegant and well proportioned body, with a front panel a reminiscent of a wider Nexus 4.
The device is a bit to glossy, but it stays elegant and you should know that it packs a 4.4-inch display, 1.6 GHz quad-core processor and those who already got their hands on the smartphone claim that it is lightning fast. The Meizu MX2 has a price of $400 (the 16 GB model) and it brings an customized Android 4.1 Jelly bean and zero shutter lag camera.
For those curious about the chipset underpinning the MX2, it comes with the same Exynos 4 Quad installed on Galaxy Note 2, based on four Cortex A9 cores at 1.6 GHz, Mali 400MP GPU, plus 2 GB of RAM. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come with microSD card slot, but it is available in 16/32/64 GB of internal storage.
Its 4.4-inch display supports a resolution of 1,280 x 800 pixels and has a bezel of only 3 mm. The battery of the Meizu MX2 promises an autonomy of 330 hours in stand by, 6 hours of video playback and 46 hours of audio playback.
