More Meizu teasers, another leak and is $522 really the price of the MX4 Pro


meizu mx4 pro password

While the team at Meizu are more than likely busy preparing for tomorrows launch, media in China have been cruising the teasers and leaks which might suggest a lower price point.

Meizu in China have been posting a steady slew of leaks over the past few days (see them all below in the gallery). The different images have all asked questions pointing at the specs many thought the MX4 Pro would have. The ask questions such as “is a 13 mega-pixel camera enough for a pro?, “is 1080p enough for Pro?” Etc. Obviously they have been designed to hint that the specs will be higher.

Meizu MX4 Pro Teaser Gallery

Today’s teaser asks is $522 is the price of the MX4 Pro, well actually it asks is 3199 Yuan is enough, the dollar price will surely be different as Chinese and international pricing continues to be different.

In this case we can’t imagine that Meizu are suggesting a higher price point, and believe we might be in for a surprise for the phone. In the lead up to the Mx4 launch many fans leaks suggested a 2499 Yuan price yet the phone was released for 1799 Yuan. Could the MX4 Pro be priced closer to the 2000 Yuan mark?

In addition to the teasers we have two more purported leaked photos of the Meizu MX4 Pro, both showing that rectangle home button where it is believed a fingerprint scanner will be held.

The Meizu MX4 Pro will be launched tomorrow and we will be there to get our hands on the phone first.

    $522?

    Think Higher (for international customers).

    At which point it isn’t worth it since you’d want reliable warranty, preferably local, with that price.

      i actually agree with this, meizu must do sth for international buyers, they are willing to ship but the price is abysmall for mx4, its like the opo invite system ,sure the phone is there to grab but you have to pay more to get it , the mx4 atm is more expensive than the mi4-one plus-honor6 by 20-60e i dont even wanna think how much more it would cost to get the plus.

      in greece you can get lg g3 2gb version for 340e and 3gb version for 420e ,the normal mx4 costs 310e ,tell me how much does the pro has to go in order to be a better deal than the lg g3?

        The normal MX4 here in Russia at the moment costs 18000 rubles (16 GB). That’s 2000 more than the pre-orders (it was 16000 rubles then). Even so it’s around ~300 euros with current exchange rates at the moment and in my opinion ofc a much better phone than lg3. The only disadvantage is that if you want service it’s hard to find in Europe (thank god in Russia they have official resellers/warranty/service centers).

    That 3199 price could turn out to be a package deal including whatever wireless audio product (speaker?) they’re probably going to announce at the same time. The Pro itself may well be cheaper. Then again, if there’s improved front and rear cameras, an audio solution beyond just a Wolfson chip, and perhaps base user memory higher than a paltry 16GB, then 3199 isn’t out of the question. Toss in the fingerprint sensor, 2K screen, extra gig of RAM, and maybe more powerful radios and Li Nan’s question to naysayers is more true…how can you do all that for (such a cheap price)? Remember Meizu isn’t Xiaomi; they actually do need to profit in order to support their (very different) business model.

    The yuan has also been quite strong this year inflating exchange rates making Chinese phones less of deal on international markets, that and resellers adding in their own premium as well.

    hmm, not feeling the button at all, never liked this style on Samsung phones, always looked cheap and janky not sure why meizu are trying to emulate it. Also if it is Exynos 5430 it’s a fail imo, its basically an off the shelf ARM reference design, much weaker than the Krait cores and GPU used by Qualcomm in the newer snapdragons. Also has an older weak Mali GPU. For the rumored pricing there are better options about.

      think the home button was a lose—lose situation. Rectangle and it looks like samsung. Big circle would look like iphone.

      I truly think they should have kept the mx3/4 home button and put finger print scanner on the back like the lg buttons.

        Yep completely agree, should have done what Huawei did with the ascend mate 7 and put it on the back expect in a circle design. The rounded rectangle has no affiliation with Meizus design aesthetic just screams Samshit.

        Nope. Putting the fingerprint scanner on the back makes for a pretty poor user experience.

        Apple has the only truly usable fingerprint implementation in the industry, I am hoping that Meizu gets it right too.

        I like the circle button on the MX 4 much better than what I see on this image.

    Like everyone else is mentioning if its $522 in China it is going to be well over $600 and maybe even $700 for international buyers. There is not a phone in the world that I would pay that much for. There is nothing this will do that my $375 Mi4 can’t do.

      4g lte :P. while i agree with you and i love the mi4 design that damn thing needs lte….

        Personally I could care less about LTE. Where I live in Thailand my average 3G speeds are around 12-15 mbps, the LTE speeds are around 15-20. It’s not a big enough difference to justify paying more for LTE. 12-15 is more than fast enough to do everything I need to on a daily basis, plus it’s impossible to go somewhere in Bangkok and not have free wifi.

        Interesting enough when I was home visiting family in the States the 3G speeds were higher than the LTE speeds. (except for upload speeds which were much better on LTE).

    the more i think about that price its just crazy .

    I can get galaxy note 4 2nd hand for that price. Lg g3 for 300—400.

    The way the rest of the leaks go and indicate, the price of the pro should/will be less or much less than 3199 yuan… or it would be stupid to advertise it like this.

  8. Faux-News

    2999 yuan or 2799 Yuan.

    Those evil Han Chinese are occupiers of others land. They don’t have any dignity or any humility. They eat their own dead kids and make soup out of them. Meizu MX 4 Pro isn’t pro at all. Evil Han Chinese people and their ideas aren’t even worth for the price of 500. It’s Meizu MX 4 GARBAGE. Don’t care about the price tag or the features. I’m worried more about the communist terrorist Han Chinese evils who might have put something inside that phone. Boycott Chinese made products. Free Tibet! Free Manchuria! Free East Turkestan! Free Zhuang! Free Inner Mongolia! Free Taiwan! Free Hong Kong! Free Macau! Goto hell evil Han Chinese communists. Guys, make sure you are prepared for the consequences. Chinese communist party is so controlling that they order their people to put other stuff secretly inside your Chinese branded devices and they use your data later on to their advantage. Boycott Han Chinese branded products and help the minority in China to get independence from those evil and baby eating Han Chinese people.
