As we have previously written, Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition has been released in China, but tomorrow the phone will become available in Europe also, for the users who have an invitation.
Also, the first Bq phone with Ubuntu has been sold in limited quantities at first, this being most likely a strategy to increase the phone’s marketing.
The Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition shares the hardware specifications of the regular Meizu MX4 (with Android) and is the most powerful Ubuntu phone released so far. It uses a 5.3-inch FullHD display with an 1920 x 1152 resolution and Gorilla Glass 3 protection, a MediaTek 6595 octa-core 1.7/2.2 GHz, a PowerVR G6200 GPU, 3 GB of RAM memory, 16/32/64 internal storage, a 20.7 MPX rear camera with 5248 х 3936 pixels, autofocus and LED flash and a 2 MPX front camera, 3100 mAh, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and GPS.
The phone will cost €299 ($335) and will be available for ordering starting with tomorrow.
The story so far:
For now, Ubuntu Touch is supported on the LG Nexus 4 smartphone and comes pre-installed on Bq Aquaris E4.5, Bq Aquaris E5 and the Meizu MX4.
