Meizu MX4 Silver Wings 32GB Price in the Philippines is Php 17,990 : Here's How The Limited Edition Variant Looks in the Flesh

Just a follow-up to what I shared with you on TP last week: Meizu MX4 Limited Edition Silver Wings 32GB and Gold 32GB variants are now officially available in the Philippines via the Chinese company's official distributor in the Philippines, Novo7Tech.

Last Wednesday - December 10, 2014, I had dinner with our friends from Novo7Tech and they let me play with the Meizu MX4 Silver Wings version, which they're now offering at all of their stores nationwide. Here's how the flagship smartphone looks in the flesh, TP Friends.

Meizu MX4 Silver Wings

As you can see, this limited edition release flaunts a visually-arresting design identity highlighted by a silver-anodized aluminum frame sandwiched by scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass touchscreen with white bezels and a glossy white removable back plate.

All of its features and technical specifications are exactly the same as the regular 32GB Grey variant which currently sells for Php 16,990. Both the Gold and Silver Wings versions are a thousand pesos more expensive as there a very limited number of these units available in the market.

Quoting our previous entry about this best-selling top-of-the-line smartphone, "The Meizu MX4 is - as its very name suggests - the natural follow-up to the MX3, which in itself is a great device. Measuring just 8.9 millimeters at its thickest point and flaunting a real metal frame, Meizu MX4 is equipped with a 5.36-inch 1152 x 1920 pixels IPS display (slightly wider than the 1080 x 1920 pixels screens we find on most smartphones these days) underneath scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass 3, a 20.7 MegaPixel autofocus camera with Sony IMX 220 lens, Two Tone Flash and Image Stabilization, a 4K video recorder, and a rather hefty 3,100 mAh Li-Ion battery pack."

It looks great on the outside, but it's what's inside that makes the Meizu MX4 a true beast of a release. This handset is one of the first devices to be powered by MediaTek's new Octa Core chipset with Big Little Technology, the MT6595 which incorporates a Quad Core 2.2 GHz ARM Cortex A17 CPU plus Quad Core 1.7 GHz Cortex ARM A7 CPU and PowerVR H6200MP4 GPU, and supports LTE connectivity. This SoC - complemented, in this case, by the device's 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of ROM - is believed to be able to match if not altogether surpass the performance of more expensive chipsets like Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 (and perhaps even Snapdragon 805) as reflected in the MX4's ultra-high Antutu Benchmark Score of 51,406, which we got during our internal testing.

For Php 17,990, you can get either Meizu MX4 Gold 32GB and Silver Wings 32GB at Novo7Tech flagship outlets (my favorites are the ones in Lucky Chinatown Mall and Gateway Cubao) or via the company's freshly opened online store.
