Meizu spill details of dual sim, LTE phone. Possibly the Meizu MX4 Mini

meizu MX4 review

Meizu and Xiaomi have been at each others throats this past week with the war of words finally drawing out some interesting details of a future mid-range phone.

The Meizu MX4 has launched, but Jack Wong of Meizu promised us at least 4 phones before the end of the year so where are they? Well we have heard rumours and even seen leaks of the Meizu MX4 Pro, this will be Meizu’s true flagship device, so what about the other end of the scale.

According to details posted by Meizu bosses on Weibo recently, a lower cost Meizu phone is also in the works, one that hopes to take on the popular Xiaomi Redmi range. The mid-range Meizu, possibly the Meizu MX4 Mini, could cost as little as 1499 Yuan and will be official available around the globe.

Gizchina News of the week

Early details say the MX4 Mini will feature a 1080 display, octacore MT6592 processor, 4G LTE and space for a micro SD card. In comparison the Redmi from Xiaomi with LTE only has a 720p display and single SIM, but does cost only 800 Yuan.

With Meizu and Xiaomi fighting in public it will be interesting to see if the Meizu MX4 Mini will actually emerge with a lower price just to undermine the Redmi. What do you think?

    I’d absolutely love if they make 4.7 – 5″ phone with top of the line specs. I hate that “mini” version always have a mid-range specs.

    I think the Redmi 1s will still be far ahead with community made roms and an endless flow of miui updates.

      Endless flow of useless updates that is. Still no official version of even 4.2 on older xiaomi phones…aka last years flagship…

        Yeah I agree, I think that if Meizu can nail the camera and keep the price low and offer the latest android version, then people may be swayed. Xiaomi’s support is not as good as many make out. They are very slow updating to higher android version numbers.

    This really isn’t news to Meizu fans who watch the company. Since 2012, Meizu has been steadily expanding its own retail presence in China as well signing up major partners, both online and bricks-and-mortar. The process only accelerated in 2013 and this year. Early on, it was rough going for Meizu’s own retail franchisees who had basically one product to sell throughout the year. Stores kept opening, though, and finally this year things are looking much better with these multiple MX4s. To date, I think they’ve opened more than 600 stores in the PRC.
