It was recently learnt that Meizu would be following the likes of Xiaomi, ZTE, etc. to launch a ‘Max’ of their own, the Meizu Max. It’s only been 24 hours or so since we first reported about it, but there’s already a set of leaked photos.
From the photos, the Meizu Max (or could it be the third variant from the M-series, the M3 Max? Time will tell) looks like a bloated M3E… which isn’t surprising. Most ‘Max’ phones this year have been that way, anyway.
Here are the pictures for you to look at. What do you think? I feel there’s no ‘Max’ phone yet with a compelling design… and this includes the Xiaomi Max.
Gizchina News of the week
Meizu have an event scheduled for the 5th of September, making it quite a busy season for them. There’s no word on pricing or specifications of this phone, but looking at the current trend, don’t expect a powerhouse. Also, FYI, rumours from China are hinting at a 1799 yuan ($270) price tag for now, which is probably just rumour and not much else.
Still happy with my Letv Max X900
how much did it cost to import from china ?
i mean customs charges …
where’s the DAMN fucker with dual cams and exynos 8890 ?!
That would cost much more than either you or I would be willing to pay 😉
but i wanted to see meizu take a huge decision. too bad they lack the balls for that !
I agree with you there. I like meizu… Using a m2 note currently, but I’m disappointed with their recent offerings. The m3 note was OK, but the p10 SoC has been rather mediocre, and the camera was very disappointing. They are always a step behind xiaomi for the same price point. I do like Flyme though. Then again I like MIUI as well (have my mom, and sisters using mi4’s)
It has nothing to do with the cost. Meizu has used Exynos chips for years. In fact Meizu was one of the first companies to partner with Samsung for full use of their components. The two have a very strong relationship. It has to do with the network support. The latest Exyos chips don’t have full network support for China. That is the same reason that Chinese versions of the Galaxy S7 use the SD820, whereas the rest of Asia pretty much uses the Exnyos 8890.
like balcobomber said: Exynos 8890 is a dead rumour, but GizChina keeps it alive.
It’s never happening. Until Exnyos chips have full network support for China we won’t see them in Meizu’s again. Hopefully the successor to the 8890 does because right now that Exnyos is the best overall chip.
Exynos is made where ?
and Samsung is Korean , i believe , so why the wrangle with close neighbours China ?!
Exnyos is made in factories in both Korea and Vietnam. Samsung is Korean but China is a very important market for them
then its dumb of Samsung NOT to give chinese network support to 8890… dontcha think ?/
Yes. But I don’t know the factors behind the decisions they might not have been able to secure the necessary licensing for that network type or the modem they are using just doesn’t support that network type.
I thought it was made in Austin TX.
You are partially correct it is Korea and Austin, Vietnam is where the phones are manufactured.
Where are all the high end phablets? Come on people make a nice sexy large phone with killer specs, only Huawei seem to have attempted it. My only wish is they would put something a little stronger that the kirin 955 with a 2k display.
The Mate 9 is expected to use the Kirin 960 and should be launching soon.
I know but I’ve sold my Meizu to a friend so I need a phone ASAP. If Huawei keep their release the same then the mate 9 won’t see the light of day till late November/early December and I can’t wait till then! Think I’m gonna get the Qiku q Terra as it’s half the price of the honor note 8 at the moment and I do like trying different brands. I’m sure it will keep me happy till next year when there should hopefully be more choice.
Low specs high price. Yeah, this is Meizu.
my dream phone 6 inch full metal body slim elegance desing with sd 650 or 652 and super amoled 2k display and then gold colour !! come on meuzi you can do it !!
