The newest flagship launch from China, Meizu’s MX4 seems to have caught the fancy of a large number of people across the globe. Notice we use ‘across the globe’ because the MX4 is Meizu’s first phone that is going to be available to international customers, along with those in China, at launch.
The company claims to have gathered a staggering 7.7 million pre-orders for the device which was launched 10 days back at an event in Beijing. The MX4 is the world’s first MediaTek MT6595 powered device, and comes with a 20.7 mega-pixel Sony camera among other impressive specs. It was announced recently that the MX4 would cost from US$449 to international customers for the 16GB version, which was quickly followed by an announcement that said the price would include shipping and tax to a certain countries.
The announcement was made by Bai Yongxiang on Weibo, aka China’s Twitter. He wasn’t shy of taking a dig at Xiaomi as well, saying that the company would be feeling pressure with Meizu’s expanding presence.

Meizu is looking to expand into a lot of other markets, something which the Chinese company hadn’t been very open to in the recent years. However, success stories of brands like Xiaomi, OPPO et al seem to have inspired the company.
