Angry Mobile Nerd, 14 Sep 2014Exactly, it's basically 7.7 million people signing up to be notified when the phone will go on... moredon't pretend like you know everything. it's real per-order because you need to pay for it. So 770m means 770m order unless you want to refund, meizu would be love to do so because their capacity is not enough
Check here, there are two versions for Tdscma and Wcdma, you have Wcdma frequencies :
Unless I missed it, the Meizu MX4 is the same Meizu MX4 you would purchase in China (I visited the site also and there is NO clarification) NOT AN INTERNATIONAL VERSION)
AT WORST YOU COULD BE ONLY 2G
HERE ARE THE MEIZU 4 BANDS
2G GSM: 850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz
3G UMTS: 850, 2100 MHz
FDD LTE: 1800 (band 3), 2600 (band 7) MHz
Samsung and Sony "pack" their phones so covering all bandwidths
3G or HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100 (+1700 T-Mobile USA)
4G LTE 800 / 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 / 2100 / 2600
The above S5 and xPeria Z2 which ideally Meizu should specifiy is in the MX4, (I visited the site also and there is NO clarification) NOT AN INTERNATIONAL VERSION) http://www.meizu.com/en/products/mx4spec.html
The Meizu MX4 that will be ship from China is the same as bought in China and if you reside in a country that uses a different band at worst you could only be 2G
Angry Mobile Nerd, 14 Sep 2014Exactly, it's basically 7.7 million people signing up to be notified when the phone will go on... moreFor China domestic market, you need to pay either RMB200 as deposit and collect the phone at Meizu store later. Or pay full and Meizu will courier it to you.
Base on information release by Meizu. That 7 mil orders are mostly from China market,the rest from overseas.
As far I know, XiaoMI is the one that like to falsify demand for their products and deliberately restraining supply. Recently Xiaomi was fined by Taiwan goverment for doing this kind of stunt.
Anonymous, 14 Sep 2014the most beautiful phone so far...true :D Most beautiful phone with MediaCrap chipset :D
Seriously? These guys have the audacity to jab at Apple's designs when their past phones are clearly iPhone knockoffs?! Say what you will about the iPhone designs of past and present, but it looks like a natural design evolution to me.
Go for Z3 Compact, has an amazing battery in perfect size with water and dust resistance.

Users only need to give their e-mail address. Basically the international equivalent of a e-newsletter. No deposit, no CC, shipping/location or even the users name has been given or verified.
Totally misleading because technically these aren't real pre-orders. Interesting how Chinese manufacturers always like to falsify demand for their products by doing stunts like this or by deliberately restraining supply.
iphone 10 plus.... Apple fanboys will say like this in 2022... "MX4 is a copy of iphone 10.. Hah Haa.. copycat..." Then I'll say.. Huh Huh Hah Hih Hoh Heh Huuuuuuah....
280$ for china and 450 for others?nice try meizu with your overpriced phone.after 3 months market will be flooded with china phones with mediatek 6595 for 150$
Pre-order in China don't require payment. It is the same as signing-up for news letter and update in the US.
It would be nice to know what 3G and 4G frequency bands this phone has. GSM arena spec page lists 8 frequencies across 3 network types but on the meizu website it says it's got 13 frequencies across 5 network types,but they don't actually list what those frequencies are.
