It seems that Meizu has buckled up and started working on a new Flyme OS based on Android Lollipop, our sources telling us that it will be as flat as stock and as beautiful as Material Design can get. We suspect that since the Chinese manufacturer is gaining momentum in the face of increasingly fierce competition from Xiaomi and Huawei.
The Meizu MX4 and MX4 Pro are set to receive Android Lollipop and implicitly the revamped UI sometime in March, according to our tipster. We're looking forward to seeing the revamped UI and curious about how much Material Design and Android Lollipop feel it will come with.
As a quick refresher of Meizu MX4 specs we can tell you that it has a MediaTek octa-core processor, a 5.36-inch IPS LCD display with resolution of 1920 x 1152, and 2GB of RAM. It has a 20.7-megapixel rear camera with dual-LED flash, a 2-megapixel front-facing unit, and 3100 mAh battery.
As for the MX4 Pro this one has an Exynos 5 octa-core processor, a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display with resolution of 2560 x 1536, and 3GB of RAM. Like the MX4 it has a 20.7-megapixel rear camera but the front-facing unit steps up to 5-megapixels, and there's a higher capacity 3350 mAh battery.

Meizu has previously done well in bringing MX4 Pro users regular firmware upgrades for software improvements, although MX4 users haven't been quite so fortunate. It's good to know then that the Android Lollipop experience is in the pipeline for both the MX4 and MX4 Pro, although at this stage it's not clear whether the open beta will be available internationally.
