Smartphone specs are looking more and more like notebook specs. There are already a number of phones with full HD screens, 2GB of RAM, and processors that are almost as fast as a PC from 5-10 years ago. Now Chinese device maker Meizu is introducing a smartphone with up to 128GB of storage.
That’s as much disk space as I have on the Samsung Series 9 ultrabook I bought in 2012.
The Meizu MX3 features a 5.1 inch, 1800 x 1080 pixel display, a Samsung Exynos 5 Octa processor, and 2GB of RAM. For about $410, you’ll be able to get an unlocked model with 16GB of storage. There are also 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB models priced at $440, $505, and $650, respectively.
Each model has the unusual 415 ppi display with a 15:9 aspect ratio, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC, a 2400mAH battery, and Flyme 3.0 OS, which is Meizu’s custom skin for Android.
Meizu tends to sell its phones in China, and it’s unlikely that the MX3 would be offered in the US anytime soon. But it’s interesting to see manufacturers offering unusual displays and storage options.
