Chinese device maker Meizu has today revealed its latest flagship model. At 9mm the MX4 Pro is not the thinnest new smartphone but uses impressively slim bezels and packs a lot of technology in its body. With a 20.7MP Sony image sensor and an F2.2 aperture the new model looks like an interesting option for mobile photographers who prefer the Android OS, but unfortunately it lacks optical image stabilization. Images can be viewed and edited on a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 2560 x 1536 pixels. This equals a pixel density of 542 ppi. At the front a 5MP unit with F2.2. aperture offers decent selfie quality.

Under the hood a Samsung Exynos 5430 chipset with a quad-core 2.0GHz Cortex-A15 and a quad-core 1.5GHz Cortex-A7 CPU is powering Meizu's Flyme 4.0 launcher on top of Android 4.4. The MX4 Pro comes with 3GB RAM and users can choose from versions with 16, 32 or 64GB of storage. Unfortunately there is no microSD-card slot to expand the memory. 

Like the latest iPhones, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Huawei Ascend Mate 7, the MX4 Pro comes with a fingerprint sensor for increased security. According to Meizu the response time is 0.5s and the identification angle 360 degrees. Sales will start in China on December 6th for approximately $410. No details on international availability and pricing have been released yet.
