Meizu MX4 rumors continue coming as NTT Docomo takes action on announcing multiple devices. In other news, Motorola is holding a hangout to talk about the Moto E and Gmail just got over a billion downloads.
We have seen Meizu MX4 leaks in the past, with specs prices and even release dates rumored. We thought there would be two MX4 variants, but it turns out we were wrong. There is rumored to be three versions of the device!
The first would be the Meizu MX4 Mini, which would be priced at 1999 Yuan. The “Standard” and “ultimate” versions are higher-end models said to be priced at 2499 Yuan and 2999 Yuan, relatively. In US dollars, these prices would range between $320 and $481.
The biggest rumor is probably the addition of a fingerprint reader, though. It’s said an unknown “foreign” manufacturer will be providing the sensors. This fingerprint reader would allow users to unlock the device. Others could also take advantage of it with user profiles.
Opinion: The Meizu MX is looking like a very promising device with a great price. Rumored specs include a screen resolution of up to 2560x1536p, a Snapdragon 805 processor and 3 GB of RAM.
It’s not often a carrier announces many devices at once, but NTT Docomo has gone all out and unveiled 11! This is a combination of smartphones, tablets and feature phones to be released this summer. Here’s the list:
- Galaxy S5 (SC-04F)
- Xperia Z2 (SO-03F)
- Xperia A2 (SO-04F)
- Aquos Zeta (SH-04F)
- Disney mobile (SH-05F)
- Arrows NX (F-05F)
- Aquos Pad (SH-06F)
- Xperia Z2 Tablet (SO-05F)
- Raku-Raku (“easy-easy”) phone: Raku-Raku Smartphone 3 (F-06F)
Opinion: You are sure to find a device to your liking in this list. My personal favorite are the Xperia A2 and Xperia Z2, which are amazing devices.
Want to learn about the all-new, super affordable Moto E? Motorola knows you probably have a lot of questions about the $129 device and will be holding a hangout to teach you all about the new smartphone and answer your questions.
The event will take place next Thursday, May 22nd at 12:00 PM Pacific. Said hangout will be hosted by Motorola’s VP of Product Marketing Steve Sinclair and Product Manager Bill Park, so make sure to keep the questions coming in!
Opinion: I love these informational hangouts. You can always find out details that no press release will convey, and talking to the minds behind a product always makes you appreciate a device more.
Google’s Gmail app has just crossed the 1 billion downloads mark in the Google Play Store. This may sound like no amazing feat, due to Android’s popularity. Plus, I rarely see devices that don’t come with Gmail pre-installed (they do exist).
The only other app that has reached these numbers is Google Play Services, which actually is installed on every certified Android device by default.
Opinion: Gmail is the most popular email service in the world, so this comes as no surprise. A billion… that is a lot of people!
