Meizu teases new Ubuntu device for MWC 2016

Himanshu, 15 February, 2016

Chinese smartphone manufacture Meizu will likely unveil a new Ubuntu-powered phone at the Mobile World Congress next week. The company recently released a teaser that suggests the same, although it doesn't reveal anything specific about the device.

If you recall, this is not the first time Meizu will be presenting an Ubuntu smartphone at MWC - back in 2014, the company showed off the Ubuntu MX3, and last year's MWC saw the company unveiling the Meizu MX4 Ubuntu.

There's currently no official word on which Ubuntu-powered Meizu device we'll see at this year's MWC event, although reports say that the company could unveil the rumored Pro 5 Ubuntu Edition. The teaser shown above reveals that the handset will be on display beginning February 22, the day MWC 2016 kicks off.
