Meizu had released several smartphones this year, including their PRO 6 flagship, and the company was also sued by Qualcomm quite recently.
This lawsuit occurred because Meizu allegedly infringed on Qualcomm’s 3G and 4G patents, and the infringement applies only for Meizu’s MediaTek-powered devices. The company already released an official statement saying that they’re trying to work things out with Qualcomm in order to keep this matter out of court.
Inspite of this Meizu has something new for the fans , as they are planning to release a new ubuntu mobile soon.
The latest Ubuntu-powered device the company released was the Meizu Pro 5 which was shown off during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona .
According to a new report, the Ubuntu bug-tracking page mentions the ‘Midori’ smartphone codename. This codename is actually completely new, and the first time it has been spotted. Now, for those of you who don’t know, Meizu tends to take codenames from the anime series ‘Dragon Ball’, the Meizu MX4 was ‘Arale’ and the Meizu PRO 5 was codenamed ‘Turbo’. As you can see, Midori is no exception, as this is quite an obvious clue, it seems like Meizu is planning to release yet another Ubuntu-powered smartphone.
Now, which device can you expect? Well, we can only guess at this point considering that we have no other info except the codename of this device. Having in mind that the previous two Ubuntu-powered Meizu-branded devices were released in an Android form before they became Ubuntu handsets, we believe that the upcoming Ubuntu-powered phone will be the Meizu PRO 6, though it is possible Meizu might opt to release one of their more affordable devices, like the Meizu M3 or M3 Note.
Lets wait for more leaks or official confirmation from the company
