After dual-core models launched last year, the Chinese manufacturer continues to introduce new quad-core model Meizu MX having upgraded specs of previous ones. This smartphone has similar configuration to Samsung Galaxy S III, including Exynos quad-core processor (1.4GHz), 1GB of RAM, 32/64GB storage and 8MP camera.

However, battery capacity is 1,700mAh, which is a little higher than that of its dual-core predecessor and quite lower than that of Galaxy S III from Samsung. Practice has shown that despite having longer runtime than previous models, quad-core MX cannot compete with the Korean model Galaxy S III.
