With a busy schedule and slower than slow WIFI it has taken me a few days longer than I had hoped to get a Meizu MX4 unboxing video up, but it is finally here for you to enjoy.
The Meizu MX4 launched on 2nd September and is now the first ever phone to get the latest Mediatek MT6595 octa-core processor, a very impressive chipset which I think will be a game changer in the coming months (along with the 64bit variants). The rest of the specification is just as unique as the powerful processor with a 5.36-inch JDI FHD display taking care of the visuals, 2GB RAM, choices of 16, 32 and 64GB memory, LTE and large 3100mAh battery.
All this kit is now safely wrapped in an aircraft grade alloy body, that keeps everything light, cool and as compact as possible and also makes the MX4 feel a lot more premium over last years Meizu MX3.
The below video gives you a look at the packaging, a detailed look at the sample Meizu MX4 which Meizu have sent to the Media and also a quick look at Flyme 4.0. I intend to make more videos over the coming days and will also make a more in depth Flyme 4.0 video once the final build has been released

So far so good! For those of you worried about the Mediatek processor, don’t! The chipset has proven to be a powerful SoC over the past week, coping well with gaming, multitasking, media and pretty much everything I have thrown at it. GPS is also a shocker for an MTK phone, and I have been experiencing lock on speeds of around 2 seconds here in Beijing! Battery life is also better than previous Meizu MX phones and I can easily get a day of moderate to heavy use from a single charge.
All in all a pretty impressive device from Meizu. I will prepare a full review once I finish my travels and I will keep a close eye on Meizu to see what else they have planned for the rest of the year.
