For those of you who have been looking forward to the regular Meizu MX3 roll out to the masses living in the US, you might be pleased to hear that this particular smartphone will arrive in the US later in the third quarter of the year. This particular model will run on the Flyme 3.0 custom Android user interface, but here we are with a snapshot of what looks to be the Meizu MX3 that will run on the Ubuntu operating system instead.
The photo that you see above hails from Meizu’s official account on Weibo.com, which is a Chinese social networking site that many have attributed it to be the “Twitter of China.” It was not too long ago when Canonical, the people behind Ubuntu, made an announcement concerning Ubuntu mobile OS making a move from being an aftermarket solution to a full-fledged mobile operating system. In fact, Canonical CEO Mark Shuttleworth did also talk about a potential hardware partner that will deliver a smartphone with Ubuntu right from the get go without specifying the name of that handset. I guess the mystery’s solved now, with it being the Meizu MX3. The Meizu MX3 should have enough processing firepower underneath the hood to be able to handle any kind of Ubuntu heavy lifting.
