Canonical, the company behind the Ubuntu OS, has launched its third smartphone teaming up with Chinese smartphone maker, Meizu.
Earlier this month, Canonical released its previous Ubuntu running smartphones Aquaris E5 HD in collaboration with Spanish manufacturer BQ.
The Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition will go on sale starting today, but only in China and European regions. The smartphone will be sold through Meizu's website on an invite-only system and priced at EUR 299. However, there is no world of availability in other regions.
The Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition is the original Meizu MX4 smartphone, but with Ubuntu Touch OS instead of Android 4.4.4 (KitKat).
The Ubuntu Edition MX4 sports a 5.3 inch display at 1152 x 1920 pixels resolution with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection on top. It is powered by a 64-Bit octa-core MediaTek 6595 processor combining four 2GHz Cortex-A17 cores and four 1.7GHz Cortex-A7 cores. The octa-core processor is paired with 2GB of RAM and PowerVR G6200 GPU.
The smartphone holds a 20 megapixel rear camera with Sony IMX220 EXMOR RS series image sensor, features a blue glass filter, and a 2 megapixel front-facing camera with Sony IMX208 sensor.
The Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition is available in 16GB internal storage, while the Android-powered version is available in three storage models: 16GB, 32GB and 64GB built-in storage option.
In terms of connectivity, the smartphone features 4G LTE network, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, A-GPS and USB connectivity for charging and PC connection. The smartphone is packed with a 3100mAh battery.
