Quad-Core Meizu MX Now Set For Q2 2012 Release
For months now, we’ve been hearing about the pending arrival of the Meizu MX, and how it has the potential for becoming the very first quad-core Android smartphone. The phone is unusual in that the plan is not just to offer it with different flash storage configurations, but with different processor options; only the 32GB model will be quad-core. The problem is, so far we haven’t heard the specifics for the launch of that version of the phone, only the dual-core 16GB model. Now Meizu’s CEO has seen fit to fill us in on the other half of the equation, posting that the quad-core version is set to arrive in May of next year.
There’s growing speculation about just how the quad-core MX will be outfitted upon its arrival. Now that we know the dual-core version will run one of Samsung’s Exynos chips, there’s a chance that Meizu will stick with the manufacturer and put a quad-core Exynos 4412 in the handset.
We now also have confirmation that Ice Cream Sandwich is in development for the Meizu MX. It’s a little early now to say whether or not the quad-core model will ship with Android 4.0 out of the box, or if it’s to be delivered as a future update.
