Meizu MX4 Pro gets Lollipop via Flyme 5.0, but there’s a catch

meizu mx4 pro review

Meizu sort of reinvented themselves with the launch of the MX4 last September, and then followed it up with the launch of the MX4 Pro later in 2014. What’s new was that Meizu was really looking to make an impression on the global market than just the domestic Chinese market.

While the phones in themselves were highly impressive (as the MX4 and MX4 Pro reviews suggest), potential and existing users worried about timely Android updates… or rather, the lack of them. It turns out Meizu has released an Android Lollipop based Flyme 5.0 ROM for the higher-end Meizu MX4 Pro, but only to ‘Panda Knights‘, aka beta testers for Meizu.


This means that the ROM should get into the public beta stage soon, so if you’re an MX4 Pro user, expect to get the taste of Flyme 5.0 very soon. What all improvements/bugs the ROM brings with it isn’t clear yet, but the coming few weeks should tell us more about Flyme 5.0 on the MX4 Pro. More information about the ROM can be found on the Meizu forums (Chinese). You can also apply for a beta tester’s position via the source link at the bottom.

Do you think emerging companies like Xiaomi, Meizu, etc. have missed a trick by not providing Lollipop updates sooner?
