Meizu MX and M9 get tease of new version

Meizu ended early experimentation by posting a public beta of Android 4.0. Both the current MX and the earlier M9 can try 4.0.3 and get many of the benefits, such as Chrome for Android and hints of new interface elements. The M9 version is an update to an earlier build and puts both phones on the same page.

Some cautions exist with the beta. It currently doesn't support Meizu's backup and recovery; users are encouraged to back up first in case they need to roll back. Some games and other titles meant for Android 2.3 won't work, and developer options like USB debugging are recommended.

Meizu hasn't said how close the finished release might be, although a beta test puts it comparatively close. [via MeizuMe]
