Meizu MX2 Unveiled, 1.6GHz Quad-Core and Jelly Bean for $400

China’s Meizu unveiled the second generation of its flagship smartphone at an event in Beijing yesterday. The new Meizu MX2 will ship sometime mid-December, and packs a Samsung 1.6GHz quad-core processor and a crisp 4.4-inch screen (347PPI at 1,280×800) for prices starting at 2,499 RMB ($400).

Meizu has also refreshed its customized Flyme UI for Android ‘Jelly Bean’ 4.1 (not the very newest 4.2, inevitably) for the MX2. Flyme OS also sees some new integrated services – so as to better tackle the likes of Xiaomi, Samsung, and ZTE – such as Flyme Cloud backup, and a phone-tracking service to pinpoint your MX2 if it gets lost or stolen.
