Meizu MX4 gets a gold version, pre-orders start tomorrow

gsmarena 001 Meizu MX4 gets a gold version, pre orders start tomorrow

Looking to get an MX4 with a touch of extra bling? Meizu has you covered as the company has just announced a gold version of its latest flagship. The new variant was announced at a Flyme + YunOS presentation held in China today and pre-orders will start tomorrow.

You can book your unit from Taobao, Tmall and through Weibo starting from 10 AM tomorrow morning. Pricing and specifications remain unchanged over the silver version.

Unfortunately, unless you live in China, you chances of getting a gold Meizu MX4 now are pretty slim. There will be just 10,000 units available initially and they will all be distributed in the manufacturer’s homeland. We are hoping that by the time Meizu finally expands the availability of the MX4 abroad there will be more units available, though.

Meizu MX4 Pro leaks in black and white

The Meizu MX4 Pro will likely have to wait until November to make its public debut, but that doesn’t mean it will be keeping away from the spotlight until then. We got yet another leak, showing the upcoming flagship in its two color versions – black and white.

We got two leaked renders that show the Meizu MX4 Pro front panel, which will feature a centrally placed hardware key underneath the display. That’s a break of tradition by the Chinese company, which has used capacitive touch buttons in its previous flagships, including the MX4. The reason for the switch is the presence of a fingerprint scanner, which will allegedly be embedded in the home key.

No other specs were confirmed by this leak, but we’ve previously heard that the MX4 Pro will come with a 5.36” QHD display, Exynos 5 Octa SoC, 20.7MP camera, and Android 4.4 dressed in Flyme OS user interface. A YunOS-powered version also surfaced a few days ago, but even if that actually exists it will likely never leave the borders of China.
