Meizu and Canonical’s Ubuntu dream is finally forming in to a solid product, with leaked photos of an Ubuntu powered MX4 hitting the web.
Last week Meizu and Canonical bosses met in Zhuhai to sign an agreement which would see the two companies work together and launch Ubuntu powered phones.
Meizu did let on with any more details about the first Meizu to get Ubuntu, but from a recent leaked photos it looks like it will be the Meizu MX4.

The photo was sent in to GSMarena and shows the Mediatek powered MX4 running a UI decidedly different from the usual Flyme. I’m quite excited to see Ubuntu on the Meizu, but looking at the image it looks like there is a lot of waisted space in the UI. Surely at least 4 icons could have been lined up on the 5.35-inch display.
We are still waiting for a launch date, but rumours have it the first Ubuntu powered phone will launch in the first quarter of 2015.[ Source ]
