Jack Wong, CEO of Meizu, has released a teaser photo of the long anticipated Meizu M9II which has now been renamed to the Meizu MX. MX is apparently short for “Meng Xiang” (梦想) which means “Dream” in English. Mr. Wong also announced that the 16GB MX will have a price tag of RMB3580 (~US$ 550), a massive increase over the original M9′s RMB2,699 (~US$ 413) price tag. You can chalk that up to some pretty great specs, some of which have already been released.

The date for Meizu’s planned update of the M9 to Android 2.3 Gingerbread has come, and gone. M9 owners everywhere were disappointed, and rightfully so, but it seems that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. The guys over at GizChina found that a Meizu engineer has posted photos online showing off an M9 running the coveted Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS, and showing off the devices mind blowing benchmark speed.

It’s only been about a month since the release of the Meizu M9, and the genious development team known as LBE have already rooted Meizu’s flagship device. This is the same group who hacked the Meizu M8 to run Android 2.2 a little while back. Although this is great news, it’s not really that important considering Meizu are planning to release an Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) update in the coming days.
Meizu’s latest firmware update for the M9 brings with it what is possibly the most important thing available to Android users, the Android Market. Along with Android Market, there are a few minor bug fixes that It’s somewhat disappointing and pathetic that it’s taken Meizu nearly a month to bring what is essentially a bare essential to it’s users. But considering the issues many brand-name manufacturers are having with updating their Android firmware, I guess I should be impressed.
