A photo and a bunch of screenshots of a dual-SIM Meizu MX4 have made their way to Weibo. The phone is purported to be the Meizu MX4 Mini and the screenshots reveal the phone is running a custom ROM made by retail giant Alibaba.
Dubbed YunOS 3.0, the Android ROM aims to replace Google's services with its own in order to provide more relevant localized content. The screenshots, which you can look at below, show dual-network indicators on the top left.
The mini version of the Meizu MX4 is rumored to sport a 5" display and pack a MediaTek MT6732 chip with a quad-core 64-bit CPU. However, this is still a wild rumor and nothing substantial has leaked so far to confirm it.
Meizu launched the MX4 in the beginning of September with a 5.36" IPS display of 1152x1920 resolution. It's powered by the latest generation MediaTek MT6595 chipset. It offers an octa-core CPU with four Cortex-A17 cores @ 2.2GHz and four Cortex-A7 cores @ 1.7GHz cores. Furthermore, the company has been leaked to prepare an MX4 Pro. It's going to come with a similarly sized display, but with a bumped resolution of 2,560x1,536.
The Meizu MX4 Pro will reportedly be powered by a Samsung Exynos 5430 chipset, which will feature an octa-core CPU. This will have four Cortex-A17 cores clocked at up to 2.6 GHz, and four Cortex-A15 cores clocked at up to 2.1 GHz. Aiding the top notch SoC will apparently be no less than 4GB of RAM.Source | Via
Chinese do not use Google licensed Android so Google's thing do not affect them. Also reason why Chinese Android don't have Google's app store.
Does the Google MADA license rules affect Chinese smartphone manufacturers? Because some Chinese phones have heavily customised ROMs on them and also support Google services.
Meanwhile still no sight of Ubuntu OS
