Chinese manufacturer Meizu has sent invitations to an event on September 2 in Beijing, China, where it is expected to unveil its newest flagship smartphone, the Meizu MX3.


Meizu has sent press invitations for an event on September 2 in Beijing, China, and while the invitation simply teases us to “think big” without divulging any details or mentioning a device by name, we’ll likely see the company announce the MX3, the flagship successor to the well-received MX2.

The Meizu MX3 has already leaked via a render image showing what the phone will look like, and ePrice has also posted a picture of what is allegedly the actual device (the one on the right in the image below). The MX3 will be powered by an octa-core Exynos SoC like the one in the Galaxy S4, continuing the tradition of every MX handset using the same chipset as Samsung’s latest flagship.


The rest of the alleged specs are rumored to be as high-end as the processor inside, including a 5.1-inch 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, and a 13-megapixel camera, all housed inside a 8mm-thin body. On the software side of things, the MX3 is expected to run Flyme 3.0 OS, which is seemingly based on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

The Meizu MX3 will probably be a China-only device again, though maybe Meizu will finally muster the courage and resources to test foreign waters. With the official announcement less than a month away, we’ll get to know all the details on availability and pricing soon enough.
