Competition among Smartphone players becomes stiff as the young Chinese electronic manufacturer, Meizu, gears up to penetrate the quad-core phones in the Philippines. It is not new to everyone that the very first quad-core phone in the country (HTC One X) had hit the shelves already, but Meizu MX Quad-Core is up in running to be the cheapest in this category.
This brand new handset is a recipient of the latest powerful and efficient Samsung Exynos chip. It goes with the Android 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Snadwich) OS under the company’s proprietary skin – the Flyme OS. Hardware would resemble as an iPhone that rocks a 4-inch display. The resolution would also be in 960 x 640 (same as the iPhone 4), so expect that the pixel density would drop to 292 ppi.
The handset will be available in June for China and Hong Kong, and the Philippines. Pricing will be in the range of Php 17,000 for 32 GB and Php 22,000 for 64 GB. The price and features are really a great catch!
