Meizu and Canonical's relationship is not over yet

meizu pro 5 ubuntu

The close relationship that has been consolidated between Meizu and Canonical seems not to end with the latest terminal of the Chinese technology company, the Meizu 5 PRO. The bet for this device was serious, a high-performance terminal at a reasonable price and able to cope with the rest of smartphones of the market in two aspects of operating system, Android and Ubuntu.

It seems that it will not be the last time that we see a terminal of this company accompanied by Ubuntu Touch, since after its considerable success in sales and the place that the system occupies in the world, each time better positioned, Canonical is interested in new joint developments.

It is not the first time that Meizu dumps Ubuntu Touch. He already did it with his Meizu PRO 5 phone, a terminal that was based entirely on the software of the Canonical company, and it seems that they will repeat the same movement with one of the two new terminals that will launch Meizu MX6 and Meizu Pro 6.

With the code name Midori (As you already know, a name taken from Akira Toriyaama's Dr. Slump series of children's drawings, as happened previously with Arale and the Meizu MX4 or Turbo and the Meizu PRO 5), the news cannot be considered even more than a mere rumor derived from the statements of both companies, where they indicated that a new terminal carried out together is on the way. Similarly, there have been statements from one of Canonical's engineers who stated that they were involved in a new project for the creation of a new headset.

If this project were to become a reality, we could have a terminal that, starting from the base of the Meizu Pro 6 model (a powerful Exynos 7420 processor equipped with 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage or, even in its higher version, with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, with a 5.2-inch FullHD screen and both front and rear cameras, 5 and 21 MPx respectively) improve the amount of memory RAM up to 6 GB, screen up to 5.7 inches or its battery, up to 3000 or 3500 mAh to face the latest mobiles launched on the market such as the One Plus 3.

The comments provided by both companies make us suspect that soon we will have more Meizu and more Ubuntu.

    And the applications of greater use when they arrive at this OS?

      I trust that soon tony, it is true that Ubuntu Touch suffers like Windows 10 Mobile from a brutal lack of Apps. And if Windows 10 is bad, I'm sorry to say that Ubuntu is even worse. It is difficult to trace the Android / iOS niche but let's be patient 🙂
