Way back in March we brought you word of the upcoming Meizu MX3. Fast-forwarding to today, we only have a few days left before the phone is expected to officially be announced. In the meantime, we bring you news of two new pieces of ‘leaked’ information about the MX3.

First, a new set of images are going around the web. To be honest, the images aren’t terribly exciting – not only are they a bit blurry, but it’s far from the first time the handset has been spotted on camera. What makes them significant is that they are supposedly official press release images, giving us a more ‘official’ look at the device.

The real excitement comes from the second leak. Apparently the upcoming handset will ship with an 128GB storage option, though smaller storage sizes will also be available. For those that have a love for tons of apps and stored multimedia content, 128GB of internal space could certainly be a dream come true.

Aside from the storage space, previous rumors also give us a pretty clear picture of what to expect from the rest of the device’s hardware.

The Meizu MX3 is rumored to have a 5.1-inch 1080p display, an Exynos 5 Octa processor, 2GB RAM, NFC and a 13MP rear cam. The handset also will run on the customized Flyme 3.0, which is basically a modified version of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

The Meizu MX3 will reportedly set consumers back 1,999 CNY, or about $327 – of course that’s for the base model. The 128GB is excepted to be closer to that of other flagship handsets outside of China, so around $600.

Keep in mind that all of the specs and images come from non-official sources, and therefore speculation is advised. It’s also unlikely the phone will ever officially launch outside of China, though with more Chinese manufacturers expanding their global presence, there is at least a small sliver of a chance.

    I know many people who don’t need that much storage on their computer! If an average app was 20mb and you had 1000 apps, you wouldn’t use even 20Gb. If you Gangstar, Modern Combat and N.O.V.A. you’d still have about 100GB left. Of course there’s music, but even my sister who has thousand of songs in her phone only uses less than 40GB. So, only things that could eat that much memory are movied, but I find it hard to believe that anyone would carry so many movies in a phone. So why 128Gb? Because we can?? :)

          Ubuntu for Android?

          • MasterMuffin

            How does that help with hardcore porn addiction? ;D

          • Christopher Vanwinkle

            It doesn’t. It is another way to use all of that storage.

    • joser116

      I want 256 GB :)

        I know that answer to make that possible friend! I’d rather wait until I’m out of school so I can bring this idea out and patent it but It’s hard to balance between money greedy and sharing innovation. Heck someone may have the same idea it just hasn’t come to life yet. anyways…DUAL-Micro SD Slot! If Sims can do it why not MicroSD? Am I right people?

        • twin microsd

          I’ve been saying that for a couple of years now….if I build a mobile it would have that feature and 128gb no other option just for for the hard core… Good for you another ideas man on the same wave length

          • NarutoNamikaze1010

            We must work together! XD We have all these thoughts and companies aren’t using it. Might as well patent it as partners XP

    • All of my music is way over 128GB and I like the option to be able to pick any one of my songs wherever I am, and whenever I want to; and that means whether I have a data connection or not. So it’s fine that you’re fine with other storage alternatives like The Cloud, but don’t mistake your preferences and experiences for what others prefer and experience. We’re all different, so options are the best answer for all consumers with varying patterns of usage habits and such.

      • MasterMuffin

        well you’re crazy :P

      • I have a buttload of music as well, plus I’d like to put a bunch of comics and tv shows on there as well, so I could fill up 128GB easily also. Hopefully this will provoke other OEMs into making bigger capacities.

      I bet your sister only uses .mp3, if your an audiophile like me, 128gb or 64gb is needed as my .flac files range from 20mb – 40mb.

    • najiy91

      games now reached gigabytes.i need that 128gb.wake up sony!

    • D’Ander McSullivan

      I can eat that up with music and games.

    • joser116

      4K recording? Even 1080p takes up hundreds of megabytes.

      • MasterMuffin

        First good reason I’ve heard so far!

    • morestorage

  • john

    I really REALLY want to know if it’s Exynos 5420 or 5410.

    • distill oratorio

      these are just rumers it could even have a snapdragon/ tegra. But if it does have an exynos octa I would think it would have the 5410 :( but who knows

  • tzkiki32

    Would it come to the UK?

  • g35suck

    I hope they come out with a mini because I’m a guy and I don’t want to buy or carry a purse to put these huge phones in.

    I need something that fits in my pocket, comfortably.
