Meizu has been receiving some light off late. All started with their Meizu MX4 hitting the top charts in Antutu Benchmark last year and thereby receiving some due publicity globally. Next up came their flagship for this year the Meizu MX5 with a Helio X10 on the inside. However their newest addition to their smartphone lineup is the Meizu Pro5 which launched a day or two back.
In fact the Chinese OEM gained a large amount of fanfare with the launch of their Meizu Pro 5. Apparently a significant no of Meizu fans are located beyond the Asian border, mostly in Europe and USA. Meizu however isn't unaware of that fact, rather the company is keeping a close eye on the US Market.
According to an official word from Meizu VP, Li Nan, the Chinese OEM is keeping a close eye on the US smartphone market, with the eventual plan to entering it. The company isn't against entering the US market in collaboration of a few carries like Sprint, Verizon, AT&T etc.
Rather Meizu aims to keep their range of devices unlocked so that the customers can buy one directly from them. Selling devices solely as unlocked isn't quite a trend in US, with all top manufacturers like Samsung, Microsoft and Apple selling their devices via carrier contracts.
The company however didn't disclose a specific time frame for their American launch as of yet. However they hinted that the company might still need to wait yet another year before they give their shot. Rather Meizu states that they are looking for the ‘perfect' opportunity.
Meizu however isn't the only Chinese who is planning an imminent entry into the American market. Xiaomi is also among them. However unlike Meizu the company started of their US foray by launching their set of accessories via their official online store.
