Meizu MX4 Pro puts the 'Retina' in your ears with iPhone-like design

Meizu is teasing their next smartphone, the MX4 Pro, boasting a new 20nm A15 octa-core processor, mTouch fingerprint scanner, and "Retina Sound", whatever that means. It's probably a speaker so sublime it makes your eyes pop out of your head. We're still trying to figure that part out.

Dumb name aside, the feature is actually shaping up to be pretty cool. The MX4 Pro will include an ES9018 DAC audio processor, dynamic range up to 123 db, and a passive filter to remove background electrical noise. For audiophiles on the move, this could be a primary selling point.
