Is Meizu preparing a new mobile with Ubuntu Phone?

Meizu MX4

A few hours ago we have learned interesting information about the launch of four new terminals by Meizu. These terminals are known, at least all but one. The first of them to be launched will be the Meizu M3 Note, the second will be the Meizu Pro 6 and the Meizu Pro 6 Mini. Three terminals with Flyme OS and by extension, with Android. But And the fourth terminal? What does the fourth terminal have? An Ubuntu Edition version or another terminal?

The most logical thing would be to think that it is another smartphone with Flyme OS, but the doubt falls again when we see that the terminals will be launched throughout the month of April, just when OTA-10 and Ubuntu 16.04 will be introduced. Too much coincidence? We have recently seen that Meizu launched the Meizu Pro 5 ubuntu Edition and it could be that in a few weeks we will have a Meizu Pro 6 Ubuntu Edition, with which Meizu would catch up with BQ in terms of terminals with Ubuntu Phone.

Meizu's fourth terminal may be an Ubuntu Edition

I know many of you remember the words of Shuttleworth when he stated that there would be no more new terminals with Ubuntu Touch or Ubuntu Phone, but since then we have met two new terminals, which contradicts the Ubuntu leader a bit. We know that Meizu would have signed a large contract with Canonical for the Ubuntu Touch Project, but so far only we have seen two terminals and one of them has been withdrawn, so it seems that there is still a lot to come from Meizu which makes me think that the fourth new terminal will be an Ubuntu Edition, but the doubt is still there.

Surely many of you think that it will be a lie and that it will not get anything, possibly you are right, but I do believe that there will be new terminals with Ubuntu Phone this year, Unfortunately we will have to wait to confirm or deny the information What do you think?

    Well, the Meizu Pro 6 Mini would be a good option. I was about to buy the Meizu Pro 5 but when I saw that it was so big I discarded it. And despite the fact that Bq has the Aquaris E4.5 and E5, I don't know if the hardware is enough to move Ubuntu well or fluently, at least from what I've seen on video, it is also a large mobile (the Aquaris and I have the X5 which is a bit smaller).
