Chinese phone maker Meizu’s latest phone probably has a higher resolution display than your phone (or tablet, or laptop): The Meizu MX4 Pro has a 5.5 inch, 2560 x 1536 pixel display.
But that’s not the only thing that makes this phone unusual. It also has just about every premium feature you can think of, including a speedy octa-core processor, lots of RAM, a high-resolution camera, and a big battery.
Here are some of the highlights:
- Samsung Exynos 5430 octa-core CPU (4 ARM Cortex-A15 and 4 ARM Cortex-A7 cores)
- Mali-T628 graphics
- 3GB RAM
- 20.7MP Sony IMX220 camera sensor
- 5MP front camera
- 3350mAh battery
- 802.11ac WiFi
- Bluetooth 4.0
- 4G LTE (in China)
- Fingerprint sensor
Meizu has also added something it calls “Retina Sound” which is just a fancy way of saying the phone has a high-quality digital-to-audio converter and amp for cleaner-sounding audio.
The phone measures 9mm (about 0.35 inches) thick and has screen bezels that are just 2.8mm (0.11 inches) thick).
Like other phones from Meizu (and a number of Chines device makers, for that matter), this a premium phone that’ll carry the kind of price you’d expect from a mid-range device in the West. Prices start at a little over $400 for an unlocked model with 16GB of storage.
