Meizu hasn't announced the MX4 today as we thought it would, but the Chinese company has at least made the unveiling date for its next flagship smartphone official. It's September 2, so the first couple of weeks of next month are due to be very, very crowded in terms of new device launches.
The MX4 will run Flyme OS 4.0, the latest incarnation of Meizu's interpretation of Android. The phone has been rumored to come in at least two different versions, a 'base model' and a higher-end version.
The latter should sport a 5.4" or 5.5" touchscreen with 2560x1536 resolution, and a 20.7 MP rear camera (supposedly the exact same unit that Sony uses on its Xperia Z2). 3GB of RAM will be in at least one MX4 model, as well as Samsung's octa-core Exynos 5433 SoC.
The 'normal' MX4 will retail for CNY 2,499 ($406 or €303), but the top of the line SKU will obviously be more expensive than that. It's also been rumored that all of the MX4 variations will come with support for 4G LTE, though that will probably only work for Chinese networks.
