Chinese manufacturer Meizu is launching the MX3 smartphone early next month as an upgrade to the MX2 from last year. However, the smartphone is apparently going to be 25% cheaper than its predecessor in order to attract more buyers.
Beginning from early 2014, the company will be shutting down a few of its stores in China, in an effort to bring down costs. Meizu has stores spread out in various parts of China so it’s going to shut down stores sequentially rather than all at once. Meizu has decided to offer the responsibility of manufacturing to Foxconn in an effort to further save costs.
Chinese customers can expect to have the smartphone by the end of next month with an announcement slated to take place on September 2. The Meizu MX3 is certainly a bargain for $326 or 1,999 Chinese Yuan considering that it features a 5 inch 1080p display, an octa core Samsung Exynos 5410 chipset, a 13MP camera and Android 4.2.2. The smartphone is expected to be only 8mm in thickness and will run on Meizu’s custom FlyMe 3.0 UI.
