The Meizu MX3 was announced on an official basis last year, but it seems as though this particular smartphone is going to roll out over in the U.S. some time in the third quarter of this year, which is still a fair number of months away. Well, the Meizu MX3 holds the distinction of being one of the first smartphones that will ship with Ubuntu Linux, although one can always make do with an Android-powered version of this smartphone. The Ubuntu version of the Meizu MX3 was shown off at Mobile World Congress in February.
You can check out a video above that depicts the Meizu MX3 with Ubuntu, where you will then have a better idea and understanding on what one can expect when the handset is made available. So far, nothing surprising was caught on the video, considering how Canonical has done their fair bit of time working on Ubuntu for handsets and tablets, notching up more than a year’s worth of experience already. Not only that, one can also opt to download and install the software on a Google Nexus 4, Nexus 7, or other supported device if they wish to do so.
The video points to a closer look at the home screen, task switcher, on-screen keyboard, notifications, and other elements of the operating system, as well as highlighting just how far Ubuntu for smartphones has come.
