Meizu’s Mx4 Pro hits the benchmarks (and it’s not running Ubuntu)
If you have been keeping a tab on the Meizu’s Ubuntu-running Mx4 Pro, you will probably understand all the hype surrounding this beast — that the phone is a beast, spec-wise.
To confirm what we have been hearing from the rumor mills, the yet-to-be-announced smartphone has left some footprints at AnTuTu where somebody inside Meizu is probably testing the device for glitches and maybe, to satisfy curiosity.
What we found out about the smartphone from the benchmarks wasn’t really far from what’s been reported. The Meizu Mx4 Pro features a RAM of 3GB, a 64-bit Samsung Exynos 5 Octa chipset with four Cortex A7 and Cortex A15 cores, and at least 12GB of free storage.
The device was displayed to be having a 19-megapixel (20.7MP actually) camera and we’ve earlier heard the sensor was made by Sony. Now, for the biggest twist of events, the smartphone ain’t running Ubuntu as speculated, it’s booting on Android 4.4.4 KitKat OS.
But that shouldn’t be taken conclusive yet. As we all know, AnTuTu is available for only a few, popular OSes like Android and iOS of which Ubuntu isn’t part of. To test the hardware, the engineers running the Mx4 Pro/Ubuntu stuff likely had to port Android unto the phone. So, all hope is not lost, y’all Ubuntu fans out there.
