The Meizu MX3 is the world’s first smartphone to launch in a 128GB capacity, although this specific model only works on China Mobile’s 3G (TD-SCDMA) network – support for GSM 2G is available though.
The handset retails for 3,999 Yuan in the region, which is about $660, and offers a 5.1-inch display with 1800 x 1080 resolution and 15:9 aspect ratio (412ppi), Exynos 5 Octa processor (1.6GHz quad-core Cortex-A15 and 1.2GHz quad-core Cortex-A7 CPUs), 2GB RAM, 8-megapixel camera, 2400mAh battery and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
At a time when 16GB of storage is the default capacity for many handsets, and when smartphone makers still ship devices with 8GB of memory, 128GB of storage will certainly keep those users that consume plenty of digital content happy. However, the lack of support for 3G and 4G networks, which would come in handy for on-the-go downloads, may be a turn off for potential buyers.
The Vivo Xplay 3 is also rumored to have a 128GB option when it launches, and support both TD-LTE and FD-LTE networks.
As for the Meizu MX3, other versions of the are also available, including 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities.
