Meizu MX4 Pro

After months of speculation, the Meizu MX4 Pro was finally made official, as a more powerful variant of the Meizu MX4. The device design is mostly similar to the MX4 but is more powerful, with a slightly larger frame, bigger display and a redesigned home button which houses a fingerprint scanner.

The Meizu MX4 Pro features a 5.5 inch JDI-made display which has a 1536 x 2560 pixel resolution. This results in a 546 ppi pixel density, one of the highest in the world right now. Meizu says that the MX4 Pro can achieve a maximum brightness of 450 nits. The display is also protected by a Gorilla Glass 3 coating.

On its rear we find a 20.7MP Sony IMX220 Exmor RS camera sensor, protected by sapphire glass. The sensor has a 5-element, 300-degree panoramic lens with an aperture of F/2.2 and a fast, 0.3-second autofocus. 4K video recording, dual-tone flash, and a 100fps burst shooting mode. The 5MP front facing camera comes with a 4-element, 84.4-degree wide-angle sensor which should be perfect for video calls and selfies.

The device will be available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB variants, but users will have to select a storage that suits them best as microSD expansion is not available. Other specifications include dual-band Wi-Fi (2.4GHz/5GHz), 4G LTE connectivity, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, GPS and a 3350mAh battery.

The Meizu MX4 Pro is powered by a Samsung made, octa-core Exunos 5430 chipset, which is manufactured using the 20nm architecture. This chip has four Cortex-A15 cores clocked at 2.0GHz and four Cortex-A7 cores which run at 1.5GHz, using the big.LITTLE technology. The setup includes a 600MHz Mali T628 MP6 GPU while 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM ensures the device runs its apps and processes smoothly.

One of the highlight of the device is mTouch - a fingerprint scanner which is integrated into the sapphire glass-covered home button. According to Meizu, this module will register and process your fingerprints for 0.5 seconds, allowing you to either unlock the device or purchase something online in less than a second. The fingerprint sensor's sensitivity of 508ppi means that it will do its job even if your finger is wet or a little dirty.

The MX4 Pro also features a TI OPA1612 amplification chip, an advanced DAC master clock architecture, and other Hi-Fi goodies which should keep the audiophiles happy.

On the software side, the handset run Android 4.4 KitKat, which has been customized with the company's Flyme OS version 4. Previous rumors suggested that the MX4 Pro will run either Ubuntu Touch or Alibaba's YunOS.

The Meizu MX4 Pro bears some great improvements over the MX4 and comes with a $410 price tag attached for the Chinese market. The handset will be sold in grey, sand yellow, and white. There is no word on international availability at this time.
