China based Meizu first spoke of their intentions to get into the American market back in December. At CES 2014, the company announced that they are indeed planning to enter the US by releasing their MX3 phone in the third quarter of this year. At the time of publishing this story, Meizu had not revealed the price of the device nor who (if any) American carriers were interested in offering the device.
If you haven’t heard about the MX3 before, the handset runs FlyMe 3.0, an OS based on Android’s 4.2 Jelly Bean. The phone itself comes with a 5.1 inch 1080p display, octa-core Samsung Exynos 5410 processor, 2MP front-facing camera, 8MP rear camera, 2GB of RAM, 16 to 128GB of internal memory (depending on the model) and a 2,400 mAh battery.
“In the North American market, many of the largest smartphone brands have raced to introduce increasingly complex features that can intimidate people who are just beginning to consider a smartphone purchase,” declared Meizu CEO Aber Bai. “These people are seeking an alternative that combines the elegance and functionality of today’s smartphones with a friendly, fun experience along with consumer-friendly pricing, which creates a tremendous opportunity for a player like Meizu in the U.S. market.”
