In September of last year, the Chinese handset company Meizu announced their newest flagship phone, the MX3. Three months later, Meizu said they would have an announcement to make at CES. Well, it’s CES week, so what does the company have to announce? That the MX3 will come to the United States at some point during the third quarter of 2014. In other words, by the time the MX3 launches in the land of the free and the home of the brave, it’ll be one year old.

Stepping back, what makes the MX3 special? It uses Samsung’s Exynos Octa chip, meaning it has four ARM Cortex A15 cores and four ARM Cortex A7 cores. It also has 2 GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel camera, and can be configured with as much as 128 GB of onboard storage. What really makes the MX3 cool, however, is the display. It’s not your standard 1920 x 1080 pixel panel, instead it’s 1800 × 1080, which means it’s wider than usual. That helps with displaying more content. The problem here is will the MX3 still be attractive in three quarters? We’re just one week into the first quarter of the year. I mean, think about it. By the time September rolls around, we’re going to have the HTC One+, the Galaxy S5, the Galaxy Note 4, whatever Sony decides to call the successor the Z1, the LG G3, and maybe even an updated version of the Moto X. With all that in the pipeline, is Meizu insane? Possibly.
