Meizu pens agreement to release an Ubuntu-powered Mx4 Pro early 2015
Following the disappointment echoed by customers from all around the world when Meizu Mx4 Pro broke cover with Android instead of Ubuntu OS, Ubuntu and Meizu have today put pen on paper after an agreement for Meizu to produce an Ubuntu smartphone which will hit the market by next year’s Q1 was reached.
The Chinese phone maker agreed to produce a variant of it’s recently-launched Meizu Mx4 Pro smartphone with Ubuntu’s mobile OS running underneath. The Ubuntu Touch on the smartphone will be tweaked with Meizu’s Flyme UI which should add support for Android apps.
Very little details were given about the outcome of the meeting which took place today at Meizu’s headquarters in Zhuhai, Guangdong, China. However, the first products are scheduled to hit Chinese and European markets by 2015 Quarter 1.
Meizu Mx4 Pro is a high-end smartphone with a 5.5-inch 1536 x 2560 pixels IPS touchscreen, 3GB of RAM, 64-bit Exynos 5 Octa 5430 chipset, a 20.7MP/5MP camera unit and a 3350mAh Li-Ion battery.
