The close relationship that has been consolidated between Meizu and Canonical does not seem to end with the latest terminal of the Chinese technology company, the Meizu 5 PRO. The commitment to this device was serious, a high-performance terminal at a reasonable price and able to cope with the rest of smartphones market in two aspects of operating system, Android and Ubuntu.
It seems that it will not be the last time we see a terminal of this company accompanied by Ubuntu Touch, as after its considerable success in sales and the place that occupies the system in the world, increasingly better positioned, Canonical is interested in new joint developments.
It’s not the first time Meizu has rolled over with Ubuntu Touch. He already did it with his Meizu PRO 5 phone, a terminal that was based entirely on Canonical company software, and it looks like they will repeat the same move again with either of the two new terminals they will launch Meizu MX6 and Meizu Pro 6.
With the code name Midori (As you know, a name after Dr Slump’s Akira Toriyaama children’s cartoon series just like it happened before with Arale and the Meizu MX4 or Turbo and the Meizu PRO 5), the news can’t be considered even further that a mere rumor that derives from the statements of the two companies, where they indicated that a new terminal carried out together is on its way. Similarly, there have been statements from one of Canonical’s engineers stating that they were involved in a new project for the creation of a new hands-free kit.
If this project were to become a reality we could have a terminal that, based on the Meizu Pro 6 model (A powerful one 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 5.2-inch FullHD screen and individual cameras, front and rear , 5 and 21 MPx respectively) improved the amount of memory RAM up to 6 GB, the screen up to 5.7 inches or its battery, up to 3000 or 3500 mAh to deal with latest mobile phones launched in the market like the One Plus 3.
The comments provided by the two companies make us suspect that we will soon have more Meizu and more Ubuntu.
