Meizu MX Announced as World’s First Phone to Use Samsung’s Exynos 4412 Quad-core Processor

Normally we would ignore a phone like the Meizu MX Quad-core out of China, but when it was announced last night claiming that it is the world’s first to sport the new Exynos 4412 processor by Samsung and will be out by June, we were interested. The phone itself sounds awesome with a f/2.2 8MP camera, 292ppi display, and Android 4.0, however, the draw is clearly the chipset. How is it that the Meizu MX is going to be the first Exynos 4412 phone and not one from Samsung? Shouldn’t this be the chipset inside the Galaxy SIII?

As of today, we know that Samsung is going to unveil their next Galaxy device on May 3, one that is likely to be the Galaxy SIII. If this Meizu MX phone is going to be the “first” with this processor then that leaves us with a couple of scenarios. First, the Galaxy SIII will be announced in early May, but won’t be released until late June or July with the 4412 inside. Second, the Meizu team is lying and won’t be first. Third, the SGS3 will sport a different processor altogether.

We have heard rumors that this phone may end up with something beyond the Exynos 4412 and into Exynos 5 (cortex A15) territory. Knowing Samsung and the way they pushed the smartphone envelope last year with the Galaxy SII, I don’t think we should be surprised if they do release this phone with something crazy.

Any bets? Quad-core 4412 inside the Galaxy SIII or something else?

  • How did the S2 push the envelope? Just another typical dual core A9 with similar specs as everything else out there.

    Nothing worth talking about. 

    I guess if S3 came out with A15 then that’d be something but they won’t.

    Keep the matte black and white, but go from pastels to neon colors and you have a winner. No matter what color you get in the current pallet ends up looking girly. 

    • Neon is way too obnoxious, I think these are the perfect colours. I have a Rose Pink PSP and it’s really pretty.

  • That looks more iPhone then the iPhone

    I would be a fan of the cortex A15-based Exynos in the Galaxy S3, that is if it comes to Verizon and does indeed have LTE (and hopefully somewhat decent battery life).

  • Cool skins! But I am still waiting for GS III..

  • tomn1ce

    May be Samsung is ahead of their schedule and the SGS3 is going to sport a Exynos 5250 with the ARM MALI T604 GPU…..just saying…

      Maybe, but if the 5th generation chip was ready why wouldn’t they be using that in this phone? Meizu hasn’t been using a Hummingbird while the Exynos has been out all this time after all. 

  • its the first phone officially announced to have the processor 

  • dredaav

    This look a lot like an *Pod 

  • The Chinese skins are really nice. Lightweight and quick.

    Oops GSII still on top. Unbelievable

  • guard her

    I’m waiting for the SIII. I can’t wait to drop Verizon.Just based on the 3G .2mb/s speeds here in tampa. Its close to worthless. I don’t want LTE locked in a 2yr. With something like the nexus. I would be pissed. GSII

      How about buying a Rezound or something off of Ebay?  I bought a mint one for $275 used 2 weeks ago.

    as i read this, i keep thinking- “beta testing”

    lol this is the GS III… lol lol 

  • I love it. Wish it worked on Verizon.

  • QQpayne

    Tell me this doesn’t look like an *phone clone. Same proportions and single button. Android phones are usually so innovative, this seems to be a lawsuit waiting to happen. I think i will stick with my Gnex.

    • MKader17

      The Chinese love their iPhone clones.

      • QQpayne

        And apparently pastel colors as well.

        • Palmer Nyako

          I thought the colors were a nice touch lol.
          Or at least, i’d like cases made with those colors.

            Chinese garbage. I can’t stand chinese hardware/ software, and their blatant ignorance of ripping off intellectual and copyrighted property. People need to stop buying chinese made goods. 

        • Chimera

          They should do some cross marketing with Sweet Tarts.

    • I think there are three buttons visible on the photo. Two on the sides seem to be capacitive.

  • Joelseph

    It will be a good move.  All these phones will blow up randomly and they’ll have a chance to fix the heat management before the SIII is launched.

    So does Meizu just rip off MIUI with their “Flyme OS” skin?

    • jonny6pak

      Didn’t Meizu create Flyme OS and then skinners ported the theme over to Miui?

    • Cyaniris

      Meizu’s UI comes years before MIUI actually, but the phone was later banned by Apple. It was MIUI who “borrows” ideas of UI.

    And I thought this post was about the Meizu MX 😛
