Chinese electronic manufacturer Meizu has officially announced the release of their MX smartphone. Prior to this, the Meizu MX had its share of rumours and leaked photos unveiled on the Internet. It is now confirmed that the smartphone will feature a 1.4GHz processor and penta-band network support.

Meizu has officially unveiled their new MX smartphone which will add another member to the Google Android army. Arriving in 2012, the 10.3mm thick Meizu MX will come equipped with 1.4GHz Samsung Exynos 4210 dual-core processor, 1GB LPDDR2 memory, 16GB of storage, a front facing camera, and a built-in noise cancellation system, all of which is powered by a 1600mAh battery. Contrary to previous rumours, the MX will not feature an optical track pad. Instead, a physical home button will take its place. The smartphone will serve the needs of frequent travelers with its penta-band 3G and HSPA plus network support, eliminating the need for different phones for different networks. The MX will don a highly modified version of Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread software, though the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update is en route.

The Meizu MX will be released on the 1 January 2012 with an expected price of ¥2999 (S$607), followed by a quad-core version which will arrive later in the year.
