Meizu send invites for Meizu M2 launch with Nokia 1110 in the box


meizu nokia launch

Meizu have sent out invitations to the launch of the Meizu m2 containing the classic Nokia 1110 in the box.

Meizu’s marketing can be hard to understand at the best of times, so it comes as very little surprise that a Nokia 1110 has been sent to media in China as an invitation to their next phone launch.

What Meizu are trying to say with the invite isn’t clear but we do have a few theories. The Nokia 1110 was known as a cheap and reliable phone, features the budget M2 should have with a rumoured price tag of 599 Yuan.

There is also the long running rumour that Meizu and Nokia will be teaming up in some capacity for a phone launch. The m2 might be the first Meizu phone to ship with Nokia apps for example?

Whatever they are trying to say there is one thing for sure, that old Nokia is likely going to out live whatever Meizu do end up launching on July 29th.

        At least it doesn’t pretend to have small bezels then surprises you with giant frames! You know who you are!

      The Nokia 3330 is more epic. That thing can be encased in concrete, driven over, thrown off a cliff and it will still work.

    Having served in both Iraq and Afghanistan seeing that phone makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. That phone was used to set off more IED’s than any other. We were trained to look at a persons cell phone before anything else and if they were holding on of these too be even more cautious of there every action.

    It’s very clear what they are trying to say, the Nokia 1110 is the best selling phone,ever with some 250 million units and it was an entry level device. So it confirms that the event is for the m2 – a cheap but good value device aimed at everybody.

    Probably a collaboration with Nokia

    Perhaps something to do with this: Meizu to be Nokia’s new smartphone partner?

    As mentioned in the article; think that’s more logical.

    Nokia is looking for a hardware partner to restart their phone business next year. Chances are this is the start of a revival with a pairing between Nokia and Meizu?
