Meizu, a Chinese handset manufacturer, today announced that it plans to sell its MX3 Android smartphone in the U.S. The MX3, which has been for sale in China since late last year, will be Meizu's first attempt to break into the U.S. market. The MX3 features a 5.1-inch 1080p HD screen, and it is powered by Samsung's Exynos 5 octa-core processor with 2GB of RAM. The device is slim and has a unique user interface that uses a variety of gestures for controlling and interacting with the operating system. The MX3 also has a 13-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth, and supports microSD storage cards. Meizu said it has to adapt the MX3 to be compatible with U.S. LTE networks, and the device will reach stores during the third quarter. Pricing was not revealed.
