Meizu MX3 will have 128 GB version, pricing rumored yet again
The MX3, Meizu’s next top smartphone, will be announced on September 2, which is this coming Monday. So obviously many leaks and rumors these days are focusing on this handset made by the company sometimes nicknamed China’s Apple.
We already told you that thanks to some extensive cost cutting, Meizu will make the MX3 available starting at 1,999 yuan (that’s about $326 or €246 at the current exchange rates) with 16 GB of storage space and sans NFC. But this is going to be the entry-level version. What about the others? And how many different SKUs of the MX3 will there be?
A lot, it seems. The Meizu MX3 is now said to come in a total of eight variations, four for China Mobile and its unique network, and the other four for everyone else. Why four? Well, for 16, 32, 64, and 128 GB internal storage capacities, respectively. That’s right, the Meizu MX3 will get a 128 GB model.
This, however, will be anything but affordable. Word out of China is you’ll need to pay 3,999 yuan for that particular variant, which translates into $653 or €493. That may seem like a lot compared to the base 16 GB MX3′s price, and it is, but it’s also in the ballpark of prices usually asked by non-Chinese smartphone vendors for similar high-end offerings, though with 16 or 32 GB of storage built-in.
So it’s clear that the MX3 will be well priced compared to the more well-known brands. The question in China though is how well it will do against Xiaomi’s products, and that remains to be seen.
