Canonical and Meizu launch Ubuntu-running Meizu MX4 for Europe
Meizu’s MX4 Ubuntu Edition was launched for developers in China last month, now the Linux-powered smartphone has hit the European market, costing 299 euros per unit.
Speaking of the “huge milestone” that was just unlocked, Cristian Parrino, VP Mobile at Canonical explained that Meixu is one of the industry pioneers in China and this is mainly the reason why the phone maker was chosen to deliver Ubuntu OS into the hands of yearning users.
“(Meizu) has mastered the user centric distribution model that is so popular in China. Their hunger for breaking down current ecosystem dynamics make them a perfect partner for Ubuntu,” Parrino said in a statement.
The Meizu Mx4 Ubuntu Edition, much like the regular Meizu MX4, sports a 5.3″ 1152 x 1920 pixels touchscreen, 20MP Sony camera and 2MP front-facer for hardware. The smartphone ticks with a 64-bit octa-core MediaTek 6595 SoC, 2GB of RAM and storage that stands at 16GB, with no space for a microSD card.
The Meizu-Cannonical alliance has adopted a retail pattern similar to OnePlus One’s selling strategy. Customers will be required to provide an invite before they can buy the product, this will help the partnership keep up with production issues. In the coming moments, we’ll feed you with the product page on Meizu’s website.
