Earlier today we have written that Meizu is preparing a big release for tomorrow, but new information has been revealed since we wrote the post.
Today, Canonical has announced that the Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition has been put on sale in China starting with today, and it should be available for ordering from European soon. At the moment, the device appears to be targeted at the Ubuntu Touch developers.
The story so far:
As a reminder, Canonical has teamed up with Bq and Meizu to be the first two Ubuntu phone manufacturers, despite the fact that Mark Shuttleworth has announced that vendors are queuing to release Ubuntu phones. Bq has already released their Bq Aquaris E4.5 running Ubuntu Touch, but the other one from Meizu has been announced but not available for ordering yet.
While the Bq Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition is a phone with mid-range hardware specs, the Meizu MX4 is a high-end device. Also worth mentioning, despite the fact that Meizu is selling its phones in China (and Asia, mostly), the two have announced that the release of the Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition will be international.
