New Ubuntu-Smartphone Launched in Collaboration with Meizu

Canonical now makes a third attempt to make a Ubuntu-smartphone-now in cooperation with the Chinese manufacturer Meizu.

In two years, the company behind Ubuntu, Canonical, tried to make its entry on the market for smartphones with its own operating system.

First, in February, and last month came the first two Ubuntu-smartphones on the market, in cooperation with the manufacturer, BQ, and now is the third of its kind ready for sale. It is made in cooperation with the major Chinese manufacturer Meizu, and goes exactly under the name Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition.

The smart phone is essentially Meizu’s existing MX4-model, but everything that is called Android and Google apps is scrapped and replaced with Ubuntu.

According to Canonical, the purpose of this third Ubuntu-smartphone to attract enthusiasts, and it differs significantly from the previous Ubuntu as smartphones by being equipped with substantially better specifications and a more attractive design.

Only for sale in Europe

Sales of the new 2,200 NOK mobile takes place on Meizu’s International website, which is only reserved for Europe. Despite it’s the yet not quite to get hold of. Just as with OnePlus One requires MX4 Ubuntu Edition an invitation, but it is also relatively easy to get your hands on.

On the website there will be filed tomorrow invitations from behind an origami-wall in a limited quantity, and if you have no luck with getting a on the first day, you can try again the following day. Deputy Director of Canonical, Cristian Parrino, tells that “most people who try, will be able to obtain an invitation”.

Cheap price-topspecifikationer

The third attempt on a Ubuntu-smartphone offers a “Grand 5.36 display with a resolution of 1152 x 1920 pixels (Full HD) in a design that measures 75.2 x 144 x 8.9 mm.

The processor is specifically adapted to version of MediaTek’s MT6595-processor. 4 of the powerful cores running at a fast rate of 2.2 GHz, while the 4 last running with 1.7 GHz and takes the easier tasks. Together with the processor sitting there 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage space.

The camera holds the entire 20.7 megapixels with an aperture of f/2.2, which is protected by Gorilla Glass 3. In front sits a Sony-optics at 2 megapixels with an aperture of f/2.0.

The battery in the Ubuntu-Mobile from Meizu saves on a relatively large capacity, which sounds at 3,100 mAh. It should be more than enough to get through a day or two.

And then there is the software, which is significantly different than what is usually running on a smartphone. The operating system takes off in it, running on computers, and therefore there is, for example, the same Launcher on the left hand side, where you can access your apps. The usual features such as notifications, lock screen, settings, of course, is also to be found.

For the smart phone can be your only 2,200 dollars from tomorrow by, if you can get hold of an invitation.It is available in the colours silver and gold.
