Meizu rumored to launch an Ubuntu-powered MX4 May 18
Meizu is rumored to launch a new version of its Android-powered MX4 smartphone on May 18, according to a Chinese report. Only this time, it will be running the Ubuntu OS.
This upcoming Meizu Ubuntu smartphone, shown at MWC in March, will feature a 1920 x 1152 5.36-inch display, a MediaTek SoC, sporting an octa core processor, and 2GB of RAM.
This’ll be the second Ubuntu smartphone available to consumers. The first smartphone to run Ubuntu was the BQ Aquaris E4.5, an inexpensive and low-budget solution. That said, it’ll be nice to see a higher spec’d Ubuntu option, and see what developers do with it. After all, there’s already some fascinating things happening with it, such as Android ports, over on the XDA Forums. As bugs and kinks get worked out, it’ll be interesting to see a fully functional ROM for Android devices.
We’re looking forward to seeing what Meizu is bringing to the market on May 18. Are you? Let us know in the comments.
