Meizu HD50 budget on-ear headphones released in China

November 16, 2015 by Tom in Audio, Meizu with No Comments.

  Meizu's latest set of headphones, the HD50, have gone on sale in China for the bargain price of 399 yuan (US$60).   When they first leaked, the headphones were expected to launch at the slightly higher price of 499 yuan, so the step down is a bonus.   They come with a hard padded case and sport a removable cable and ship with an extension jack, as well as a jack for plane audio.   Thes HD50s resemble the B&O H6 headphones, but there's no word yet on whether they match up on sound.   Via gizchina

September 16, 2015 by Tom in Android News, Meizu with No Comments.

Meizu has got a big product launch on 23rd September - expected to be the Meizu 5 Pro. Along with its new product the company will also release into the wild its new version of its OS, Flyme 5.0. Screenshots of Flyme 5.0 have been around for a while but up until now there was no word on when it would be out. It's not been too long since the MX4 models launched so whether 5.0 will be available to users of those devices is yet to be seen. [gallery link="file"] Via gizchina and androidheadlines

Invites have been sent out for the first European models of the Chinese Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition smartphones.

Inside is 2G of RAM and a 3,100mAh battery. The rear camera is a 20.7MP Sony unit and the front-facer is 5MP. The phone will launch in Europe at €299 ($334). Via pocket-lint

IPhone/Galaxy S Hybrid Or Meizu’s High End MX Smartphone? It’s The Later

September 22, 2011 by Alex in Meizu, Other, Other Phone, Phone with No Comments.

However it certainly looks like the former. The MX is Meizu's new smartphone that is so impressive it can be considered high-end, which actually takes away from the appeal of it being an 'inexpensive' china-made device. Thanks to MP4 Nation forum member, chengdude, we've got the scoop on the MX smartphone - it looks like it'll come in two models: a 16GB dual-core version that's to come on the 1st of October (the National Day holiday), and a 32GB quad-core (yup! quad-core!!) version to come later. Find out more after the break. As for what's powering these things - the dual-core version is speculated to be using Samsung's Exynos processor (Samsung Galaxy S II), however the quad-core processor remains a mystery. Kal-el perhaps!? Both versions come with a 4-inch screen with a resolut

Leaks Reveal Meizu’s Plans For An Upcoming Tablet

September 7, 2011 by Alex in Android Tablet, Meizu, Tablet with No Comments.

From web leaks made public by the Chinese State of Intellectual Property Office, we now know that Meizu - the company that managed to shed its stigma of being an iPhone cloner (with one of the first successful models actually!) - are coming out with a tablet that could also be sporting a non-iPad like design. The leak itself is a patent image of the tablet, created by Meizu, which you can see above. There is also one of a case for the tablet. Find out more about the Meizu tab after the break. From the image we can assume that the tablet will come with a full QWERTY keyboard, giving it an Asus Eee Pad Transformer look. There has also been speculations on the tablet running Android Honeycomb as its OS and will be powered by a dual-core (at the least) processor. I guess we are going

Meizu M9: Gingerbread & Amazing Quadrant Score

March 15, 2011 by HS in Android Phone, Meizu, Other, Phone with No Comments.

The Meizu M9 is supposedly getting a Gingerbread 2.3 update before the end of this month, according to M8 Cool. Not only that, but there are some pretty impressive Quadrant benchmark scores from the 2.3 update to the M9, images of which you can see after the break. To refresh your memory, the M9 is a viable Galaxy S / iPhone competitor – at the very least in China, and certainly you can’t rule out internationally – with its 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 960 x 640 and runs Android 2.2, to go along with a 5-megapixel camera capable of 720p HD video recording. It’s powered by the same processor as the Galaxy S – the Samsung S5PC110 and runs Android 2.2. Click to enlarge. via meizu

January 3, 2011 by HS in Meizu, Phone with No Comments.

The recent launch of the Meizu M9, a very good Android handset that has made a name for itself amongst the big boys, drew thousands upon thousands of willing and, ultimately, waiting expectant customers. To be sure, the excitement is justified - the M9 is a stud of a smartphone, experiencing incredible levels of hype as the M9 release gradually grew closer before a redesigned site was all that was needed to reveal an impending launch and immediate availability. To refresh your memory, the M9 is a viable Galaxy S / iPhone competitor - at the very least in China, and certainly you can't rule out internationally - with its 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 960 x 640 and runs Android 2.2, to go along with a 5-megapixel camera capable of 720p HD video recording.

Part of the appeal of the M9 is the work they've put into making it a viable media p
