Meizu M8 interface evolves

The interface for Meizu's iPhone clone, the M8 -- also known as the MiniOne -- is undergoing subtle changes, according to various reports. Meizu itself is now claiming to have added more touch software to the phone, though it is not disclosing specifics. The company should eventually release a framework describing the entire interface of the phone, a potentially risky move given the device's association with the iPhone and Apple's plans for a Chinese release.

Updated images have been published on a Chinese-language website, though, giving the public a first glance at the M8's music interface. It is cosmetically similar to the iPhone, with similar rating and navigation buttons, as well as a Cover Flow-like browsing mode; users can even rotate the phone sideways for different viewing options. It is distinguishable however by combining many different elements into the same page, such as lyrics and a levels display.

Progress on the M8 is said to have sped up in recent weeks, which may allow it to meet its Chinese release date in August.
