The Meizu MX Quad-core, a more powerful version of the MX from earlier this year, has been slated for release on June 30th.The Quad-core has the 4-inch 960 x 640 display and 8-megapixel camera of the original MX, but it comes with 32 or 64GB of storage instead of 16GB and a quad-core Samsung Exynos processor that Meizu promises is 60 percent faster than that of the MX. We previously heard it would be priced at ¥2,999 ($475) and ¥3,999 ($633) for 32GB and 64GB respectively in Hong Kong, but Meizu says more updates will be forthcoming soon.
Besides the more powerful hardware, one of the selling points of the MX Quad-core is Flyme OS 1.0, a custom skin based on Android 4.0. The new version of Flyme adds a phone-finding service and cloud storage in addition to standard Ice Cream Sandwich updates. Owners of the MX and the older M9, meanwhile, will be waiting a little longer for Flyme OS 1.0. The update was originally promised in June, but it's now been pushed back until mid-July at the earliest, apparently because of software development issues.
