Xiaomi wants to launch a $244-priced Meizu Mx4 killer
Inspired (or irritated, maybe?) by the success of Meizu’s MX4 flagship smartphone which is reportedly selling very well in China, Xiaomi will make a competitor to help slow down the product’s progress.
Co-founder Liwan Jiang, on his Weibo account, said that Xiaomi will soon announce a smartphone that will compete at the price tag of 1,499 Chinese yuan, which is about $244. The smartphone will directly contest with the Meizu Mx4 which is priced at $449 for the 16GB storage model.
Xiaomi’s purported device is expected to have striking a resemblance of the MX4, at least in specs. The latter comes with 5.36 inches of IPS touchscreen which features an unpopular 1152 x 1920 pixels of resolution.
The MX4 further packs a MediaTek MT6595 chipset which uses a ARM’s big.LITTLE combo on it’s two quad-core CPUs. A 20MP Sony rear camera, 2MP front-facer, NFC and LTE capability, 2GB of RAM and a sealed 3100mAh battery completes the rest of the specs.
