Meizu started its week in China with the MX Quad-core. The design promises to be one of the fastest phones on the market, partly through its using a Samsung chip instead of the NVIDIA Tegra 3. While shy on details, Meizu mentioned it as an Exynos based on a 32-nanometer ARM Cortex-A9 design, likely making it the Exynos 4412 and giving it a 1.5GHz clock speed.
Meizu founder Jack Wong has posted the first photos and hand-sketched images of the upcoming FlyMe skin that will be paired with the Android 4.0 OS in the company's upcoming smartphones. The Meizu MX that launched in China at the start of this year is expected to run the skin along with the M9. The M9 was recently involved in beta testing of Android 4.0.
Meizu signaled on Tuesday that it was getting close to bringing an official upgrade to Android 4.0 to its 2011 smartphone, the M9, by starting up beta testing. Along with its Chinese work, a posting at Meizu Me has opened a very limited number of slots for those who live elsewhere to get test firmware early. The candidacy system at least outside of China is based on subjective merit and more likely to go to experienced fans first.
The quad-core version of the Meizu MX smartphone won't be coming to the Chinese market until May of next year, the company's boss Jack Wong revealed on the Meizu BBS forum board. That's a lot later than originally expected, though that unofficial launch date has come and gone. When it does arrive, however, Android 4.0 should be onboard, along with Meizu's Flyme user interface.
