Partnering once again with Chinese OEM Meizu, that two have taken the Meizu PRO 5 from last year and turned it into a full-fledged Ubuntu Phone.

Xiaomi enters the US market via carrier but there’s a catch

The Chinese superstar OEM has, for a long time, signified its desire to enter the US smartphone market but hasn't made any concrete steps to do so. Sensing a business opportunity, carrier US Mobile, which uses T-Mobile's network, has just added a couple of Xiaomi's, as well as Meizu's, smartphones to its shelves. But in a blink of an eye, they were gone, probably because of their shady nature.

Meizu MX5 boasts full metal body, 20MP laser-aided shooter

Apple and Samsung push the limits of smartphones in every flagship and Chinese manufacturers push back by going with the trend and slapping on a cheaper price tag. Meizu's latest MX5 is probably the epitome of that cycle. Eschewing the mostly plastic build of its predecessors, the Meizu MX5 now flaunts a metal-clad body with a design that is unabashedly reminiscent of other high-end flagships. Bundle that up with not so insignificant hardware and a price to die for and you've got the makings of classic Chinese smartphone star.
