Meizu CEO talks about the next 8-core, 128GB, 4G LTE Meizu phone, debunks some of the rumours!

In a recent interview Meizu CEO Bai YongXiang and Vice President of Sales Tin Mok of Meizu talked about the next generation Meizu flagship phone and debunked some of the rumours!

The past few weeks has seen its fair share of Meizu MX3 rumours, but according to Meizu CEO, Bai YongXiang, none of the leaks have shown the real next generation phone and the new phone won’t even be called the MX3!

In an interview with Russian phone site Mobiltelefon, senior personal at Meizu spoke about the new phone stating that all the leaked images so far are fake and that the new Meizu will feature an all new ergonomic and easy to use design. In fact it seems a lot of work has gone in to making the new Meizu flagship phone as easy to use as possible using just one hand, even the next version of their ROM, Flyme 3.0 will be optimised for single-handed use! Flyme 3.0 will also see a more simplified look similar to what Apple have done with iOS 7.

Physical details of the next generation Meizu were kept to a minimum but we do know that the phone will be offered in 3 colours (black, white and ??) and will have a display of at least 5-inch manufactured by Sharp which will “amaze us with bright and rich colors”.

Things get even more interesting on the hardware front as Meizu bosses confirm the use of the Samsung Exyno Octa-5 8-core processor used in the Samsung Galaxy S4 which features big/small technology to help preserve battery life. A 13 mega-pixel Sony rear sensor will be in place and the phone will be available in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and possibly even a 128GB model with 4G LTE!

There will also be a boost in audio performance with a louder external speaker being used and the inclusion of a separate amplifier to boost headphone audio performance.

So that’s the flagship Meizu phone, so what about the mysterious entry-level “blue charm” handset? Well according to Meizu this phone does not exist and the company have no interest in manufacturing cheaper phones.

Pretty exciting stuff, but will it be enough to take on next generation phone such as the Xiaomi Mi3 and Oppo Find 7? I guess we’ll find out soon enough as the phone is rumoured for launch next month!

    I had their first mobile launch M8. There were lots of bug in OS, Voice quality was not good and all most every piece of first batch of M8 had touch screen issue. Irrespective of resolving these bugs and providing stable solution they put efforts to launch M9.

      I had an M9. Suffered with it for 2 months and bought a new phone…

    For a mobile phone spend more than 300 $ is not much good.

          You know… this world is too fast to think over your solution. Assume, today $SOME_COOL_MOBILE_FACTORY unveils their $NEW_MOBILE_DEVICE, which is better in all aspects than everything on the market brought alltogether. It is awesome and you wanna buy it. You begin reading and watching reviews, customers’ feedback, macro photos and so on. First month after launch there are some hardware drawbacks and software bugs the first users are complaining about. You decide that you need some time until $SOME_COOL_MOBILE_FACTORY fixes all them, rolling out new firmware and maybe fixing production fails. The hype lowers. And the price is moderate and 10-20% less than on launch date. It seems that all the bugs are gone, except those that are “by design” but they do not matter for you.

          And suddenly $ANOTHER_COOL_MOBILE_FACTORY announces its own $NEW_MOBILE_DEVICE. It is 20% faster, 10% lighter, its display’s colors are 2x more vivid and bright, its battery can feed your house for 3 hours etc.

          It is awesome and you wanna buy it.

    As far as I know the Samsung Exyno Octa-5 8-core processor does not support 4G LTE, thats why the Samsung Galaxy S4 is sold in many countries with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, Quad-core @ 1,9 GHz.

    Sorry, it seems that I was wrong. I have seen on some websites that there is a Samsung Octa-5 8-core processor that supports 4g LTE.
