128GB Meizu MX3 handset available in China

by: Chris SmithNovember 18, 2013


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.

    Mobiles in China have to be compatible with China Mobile as it is the biggest selling mobile network company there is. It covers more of China than the other networks. This is an issue for manufacturers as they either have to make a model compatible with both or just the one and lose out on sales. As Meizu is a Chinese company, going with China Mobile is their best bet at home. But this won’t be any good if sold abroad and I don’t think they do this yet (I could be wrong).

    I don’t like digital streaming -.-

    • MasterMuffin

      Yea everyone’s saying “you don’t need storage, smarr people stream” NO

      • SSDROiD

        That supposed quote was even more hilarious when you wrote “smarr” instead of smart hahaha XD

    There’s a lot of decent devices in China these days. . . for about 1/2 what we are paying. Sadly, they don’t usually have the necessary radio frequencies. . .

      Lol, have a safe trip.

  • Oliv

    The bad part of this phone is BATTERY (only 2400 mAh) the rest of specs are awsome!

  • Emmanuel

    Would have been the perfect device but for the lack of support for 3G bands.

    Just to complain, need a better camera.

  • King Dong

    Finally a device with decent storage capacity!

    Onboard storage doesn’t make sense at all when you can easily have removable storage. The benefits far outweigh any transfer speed worries. Removable storage means:

    1) expandable to the size you want
    2) replaceable should you run out of storage for your vacation photos
    3) durable because if your phone stops working for whatever reason, you can bet the SD card survived with all your data (this is a big one)
    4) small point, but lets you switch phones easily without hassel
    5) sharable between devices and people
    6) cheaper solution

      How about having a 128GB phone *and* a MicroSD card slot? :D

      • Jason Yuen

        I would rather have a 16gb onboard storage and shave a hundred bucks off the phone. With that said, if the increased storage doesn’t cost extra then that would be fine. I had a 16gb S3 and now a 32gb note 3 but haven’t really used the extra onboard storage.

    If they want to increase something they need to envision more RAM

      Just to complain, need a better camera.

    A 5″ 1080p display and an octa-core processor on a 2400 mAh battery? No thanks.
