This rumor was later confirmed in November by Canonical (Ubuntu Touch) and Meizu about their partnership, they then provided one of the first smartphone launched in the first quarter of 2015 in China and Europe.
It is on the Meizu official Web page that be any more need to wait for MWC 2015 for what the manufacturer will unveil. With a picture showing a rotating MX4 Ubuntu Touch, we know everything there is to know… almost. In any case, Meizu really wants to attract potential buyers of its smartphone “More than better”.
Ubuntu Touch is not a common OS, far from it. To be honest, the first smartphone running Ubuntu Touch to be sold is the BQ Aquarius 4.5, 10 February.
