Remove the back/battery cover.

If the letters on the battery are all in Chinese and it says M461,
you have China Unicom M461 model.

If the letters on the battery are all in Chinese and it says M460,
Then you have China Mobile M460 model.

These are both Chinese Meizu Mx4 models.

If the letters on the battery are in English
and it says M461,then you have
International M461

(I think that there is also Hong Kong M461 model that comes pre-installed with the International firmware.
On this model the letters on the battery are also in Chinese if I’m not mistaken)

Mine has the following:
Upper part of the battery and below the attention/danger symbol:
Chinese and under it the translation? in English
Little sticker on bottom of the battery in English saying the model M461 LTE Network, IMEI etc.

This is the international version?

As I remember,your device came with
International firmware pre-installed?

If you can install International firmware,
your MX4 is either International or Hong Kong M461

(I think that yours is Hong Kong version)

Both variants,
International M461 and Hong Kong M461, can install international (I)
firmware as far as I know,
because the recovery on this models can install unsigned .zip. as far as I understand .

Yes it came with 4.0.4i firmware. Bought it from the official and exclusive re-sellers here in Russia (mymeizu.ru), not a random re-seller from a online shop or whatever.

So It is either International or Hong Kong,they’re the same device with same recovery and bootloader.

Only the box is different.

On the International variant
sold outside Hong Kong,
the box is in English letters

And on the Hong Kong variant
the box is in Chinese.
That’s the only difference as far as I know.

My box, on the rear has english sticker and inside the “book” where the phone was was fully in English, so I guess that’s the international version. Also had inside the “book” warranty in Russian and the safety information brochure in many languages.
Thanks a lot for the answers mate!

Then your Meizu MX4 is International M461 .

Cheers dude ;)

I have m461 in Chinese, with preinstalled U software. I bought my mx4 on geekbuying.com So, can I install I software or not?

No, I recomend you to install the latest “A” firmware.

You only have to download the update.zip and open it with the document app installed in the Meizu
