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.

If only notebooks had screens with smartphone grade pixel densities…
Btw, 15:9 is closer to 16:10 than to 16:9. That would be one step into the right direction if this were a notebook but it’s a strange choice for a media consumption device.
4 gigas of RAM and 256 gb of ROM or ssd and i will put muy computer in the rabbish. I will pay until 750 dolars.
This is what I have been waiting for. As a music lover who can’t part with the idea of a curated digital collection of music I have been stuck with an iPod classic 160G for years. I don’t know why people have been so satsified with 8 or 16G for so long.
Any word, if it is the 1st gen Exynos 5410 with it’s known shortcomings, or its refined successor 5420?
It also would be of much interest to know, if a Chinese phone finally keeps up with global 5-band UMTS aka W-CDMA support. And what about LTE?
To get LTE, they may have to go with a Qualcomm Snapdragon for battery life purposes, perhaps, or because only Qualcomm can deal with the “31 flavors” of LTE, and older cell technologies. The Samsung Galaxy LTE phones in the US use Qualcomm rather than Exynos.
