Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition: available for everyone, priced at 299 euros


meizu ubuntu mx4 launched

Meizu and Canonical announced the Ubuntu Edition of the Meizu MX4 last month, but restricted access to only a few “invite-lucky” recipients in the EU. Today, however, the story changes: every EU citizen can now order a Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition, putting an end to the invite-only process that can hurt sales in many ways.

The Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition features a 5.36-inch, Full HD display with a 1920 x 1080p screen resolution and has a Gorilla Glass 3 panel that will protect the device from most drops. Sure, the Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition doesn’t have Corning’s latest Gorilla Glass 4, but it’ll do the job for most consumers. The MX4 Ubuntu Edition runs on an octa-core MediaTek MT6595 processor that features a low-power, quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 processor and a high-power, quad-core ARM Cortex-A17 processor for intensive tasks. Meizu’s Ubuntu MX4 doesn’t have a 64-bit chip, but the A17 is the highest 32-bit chip available – which means that you’ll still get a stellar performance out of gaming and other heavy on-screen actions.

Gizchina News of the week


As for other specs, the MX4 Ubuntu Edition features a 20MP camera that includes Sony’s IMX220 sensor and shoots 4K video at 30fps. It has the same sensor as Sony’s Xperia Z3, but not the same as that of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy S6, and S6 edge (with the Sony IMX240 sensor). To round out the specs, the MX4 Ubuntu Edition features 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM, not the DDR4 RAM you’ll find in the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge (the first two devices to feature the new RAM), 16GB of storage, and a 3,100mAh battery – which should keep the lights on through an entire day of usage.

The MX4 Ubuntu Edition will cost 299 euros ($323.83USD). Any interested buyers?

    Article title should be changed to: “Available to everyone in the EU”. It is very very misleading.

        It died within a week lol. The phone itself was crap but Ubuntu has a bright future if they can solve the App problem and lock down some good suppliers (Meizu is a good start). There are numerous community members working on Android emulators which have mixed results.

            No I won a Meizu Mx5 from the contest here. So eventually that will be my new phone. If Meizu offers the Mx4 Ubuntu for people outside of the EU I will consider getting one.

              Ubuntu has the potential to be the replacement for Blackberry, a phone that functions best in the office environment. It is something Windows Phone should have attempted instead of trying to take on Android/Apple.

              Yes Ubuntu Touch and Ubuntu Phone are the same thing. The project started out being called Ubuntu Touch and was later changed to Ubuntu Phone. But there is already a ton of free knowledge available on the Ubuntu Forums as well as this which I got with my BQ phone:

              https://static-bqreaders.s3.amazonaws.com/file/Ubuntu-Aquaris_E4_5/Manual_Aquaris_E4.5_ubuntu_EN.pdf

              The hardware section is of a little use to anyone not using this phone, but the software part applies to any phone running Ubuntu.

              Yea they had an early adopter program on kickstarter for the Ubuntu Edge. Their goal was to raise 32 million, they only raised about 13 million and cancelled it. Shortly after that they began lining up deals with BQ and Meizu.

    I have Ubuntu on my laptop and I’m happy with it.
    I switched from Microsoft when i couldn’t do anything more than delete malwares everyday.

    Android might not be perfect but all its issues don’t bother my daily experience.

    I’ll stick with Android at this round.
    thanks to Meizu for the opportunity.

    Just one thing though: Ubuntu concept and locked bootloader don’t look nice together.

    • balcobomber25
      July 21, 2015

      I got tired of the daily lockups on Windows and the random blue screens and also switched to Ubuntu which I love. The only thing I dont like about Ubuntu is Unity which is why I use Gnome 3. But using Ubuntu on a phone I actually enjoyed but think it still needs time to grow and mature. I could never replace Android but it could make a nice work solution.

        You should be thankful that Windows shows errors in your system, and you should take action on it.

        If Ubuntu is not capable of detecting any errors in your system, it does not mean there are none.

        • balcobomber25
          July 21, 2015

          I should be thankful that Windows is one of the most least secure environments for computers? Oh Windows gods I am so thankful to you!

          Back to being serious now. Ubuntu is a more stable, more secure system that is much easier to customize. You couldn’t pay me to go back to Windows.

            For sure Ubuntu has it’s adventages, but saying “you are tired of random Windows blue screens” is what I am talking about.

            If you want to talk abstractly, Ubuntu has ridiculously smaller amount of apps and I can’t imagine myself using it. Security ? Once again I come to the same point – unless you are 10 years old guy with no knowledge, you can manage to make Windows run as secure as Linux.

              Your right blue screen errors never happened to Windows users. Me and the millions of people complaining about it on forums are all lying to smear MSoft.

              Ubuntu has all the apps I need. There is an open source app to cover everything the average user needs to do. And if you can’t find the app you need there is Wine which lets you run Windows apps.

              There is no such thing as “random blue screen error”. Every error has it’s specific reasons, and there are millions of people who go to forums to help them solve it. Link me to the forum thread which shows that blue screen was caused by Microsoft, and we will discuss it further.

              Also, I hope you are talking about latest and legal Windows 8.1 build and not some outdated version.

              I never used Windows 8. I gave up on Windows a long time ago and switched to Linux. Whether Blue screens are Microsofts fault or not they only occure in Windows. I have been using various Linux distros for about 8 years now and have never once experienced anything close to an error that completely freezes up my system or causes a reboot.

              Windows runs on 90% personal computers comparing to 1.6% Linux. For some reason you state percent of people who get errors as the face of Windows, while much higher amount of Windows computers are running perfectly(I am not talking about people who decrease their computer health by installing software from untrusted sources).

              My whole point is that you can’t say that the whole OS is bad, just because you don’t know how to maintain your computer health. I do not prefer Ubuntu (yet), but I have never said it is bad just because I had problems with it.

            • balcobomber25
              July 21, 2015

              I know very well how to maintain my computer health, avoid Windows. Microsoft is on 90% of PC’s because for years they used their endless supply of money to kill of any and all competition for years it was the only choice for a new PC. But they are losing market share every single day to Chrome OS and Mac OS. Chrome has dominated Microsoft in the education sector and on sites like Amazon. Microsoft fears them so much they attempted (and failed miserably) to release their own low cost laptop solution (Windows 8 featuring Bing).

              The PC market itself is dwindling as more and more people are using their mobile devices. And overall Linux is destroying Microsoft. When adding in mobile devices Windows runs on just 14 percent of devices worldwide. Linux is on 49%.

              You personally know that every Windows computer is running perfectly? I can point you to several forums who would disagree with you. I actually don’t know a single person who has never had a problem with a Windows based PC. I guess you are the first one in the world. Congrats!

          I was actually using Linux Mint Cinnamon for the longest time but then I got a new laptop and wanted to give regular Ubuntu a try again. I read an article on Gnome 3 and decided to give it a shot and really ended up loving it.

            Ah yes I’m aware that Linux Mint has a huge following. When I’m ready to convert my Macbook into a Linuxbook, I will be choosing between Ubuntu, Kubuntu or Linux Mint.

            I wonder how many other people have moved back from Linux Mint to Ubuntu ?

            • balcobomber25
              July 21, 2015

              Linux Mint is probably the easiest to use (Zorin could also make that claim) which is one of the reasons it has such a big following. If you like Mate, Linux Mint Mate is one of the best uses of it.

              I think Mate is based on versions from yester year if i’m correct, or at least Ubuntu Mate is based on Gnome 2.

              I’ve also heard good things about Elementary OS as well.

              Having said, I guess if I were ever to have an Ubuntu Phone then I should stick with Ubuntu (Unity) ?

            • balcobomber25
              July 21, 2015

              Mate is based on Gnome 2. Basically when Gnome 3 was announced several community members of Arch Linux weren’t happy about it and created Mate as a replacement for Gnome 2. Before Unity, Ubuntu shipped with Mate as the default environment.

              No problem and for Ubuntu and Ubuntu phone it really doesn’t matter if you use a different environment on the PC. They do use Unity on the Phone but it feels and behaves a lot different than it does on the PC. It actually works a lot better in a touch environment and it is set up differently too (starts from the bottom instead of top). If you are going to use Ubuntu Phone I would suggest using regular Ubuntu first and getting used to working in the Terminal. Ubuntu Phone is still a work in progress and to get some things working requires at least basic knowledge of the terminal.

        that’s what i meant.
        now people come saying that there’s no virus on windows.

        i knew any single process on my computer and i would have caught any malware before the antivirus.

        i almost arrived to know even the md5 of each process.

        i was more than a power user on windows and you know I’ve never claimed to be good at anything here but I’m doing this time since i was.

        i was because i got tired of it, i was wasting time and lose productivity.
        i kept it only on virtual machine

          The Windows fanboys live in a bubble it seems they always have perfect conditions, never have any problems and anyone who does doesnt know how to use a computer. I would love to be a fly on the wall when they do have an error, it must be hilarious. I actually use Ubuntu Live cd’s to fix so many of my friends Windows PC’s or to save their hardware data when Windows completely fails on them.

          Personally I don’t hate Microsoft, I have a Lumia phone and an Xbox One. But Windows just isn’t for me. Some people use it and love it, just like some love Mac OSX and I even know a few who still swear by BSD. Personally I love to customize the look and feel of my PC and Linux is the best for that.

            not even bill gates would deny it.
            I was more than a power user and i also i used to fix them using an Ubuntu live CD.

            there were malwares that the best and updated antivirus softwares didn’t find.
            you could delete that process only through a live cd.

            another funny story i heard.
            my pc has no virus!
            right, like if by infected it can only mean a computer that opens popups with porn.

            there are keyloggers and other silent stuff that might use a reliable process like svchosts.exe (which uses over 20 services and its hard to properly set rules on the firewall).

            i agree that a savvy user might be less exposed but still not 100%.
            i mean, you can read the news right?

              Apparently Andrew can’t read the news or refuses to read it for anything Windows related. I remember about ten years ago a bunch of the music industry got busted for using rootkits as a way to combat anti-piracy. Once you inserted a CD into your computer it installed automatically and was undetectable by many anti-virus programs. Not only that but if you tried to use the included “uninstaller” that it also installed, it would simply hide the program and also install spyware on your computer. The worst part was they were so poorly written that if someone was able to uninstall it, it would often render the CD drive unrecognizable by your computer.

              But I bet Andrew will argue that never happened, those people accepted the software to be installed and were too stupid too read it or it’s all a conspiracy against Msoft.

              i remember that, it took so long to disable the autoexec of cd rom.

              there’s stuff that didn’t even come out yet.
              i remember i was having fun debugging with soffice and there was a program back in time named Skype (guess who owns that now)
              that killed itself as soon as it found out there was soffice running and debugging from low level.

              wanna talk about flash player?
              it was probably the favorite Trojan horse for malwares and messed up for so long time.

              i can’t believe i need to argue and bring examples about something so obvious. but whatever…

        I thought Ubuntu Unity was Gnome 3, whereas Ubuntu Mate was Gnome 2 ?

        • balcobomber25
          July 22, 2015

          Technically speaking Unity was originally a graphical shell that sits atop of the Gnome Desktop. Since then though it has become its own project and Cannonical (owners of Ubuntu) have made it their own. Most Desktop Environments are a collection of apps (file manager, windows system, browser etc) plus the user interface all in one package. Unity uses bits and pieces from various desktops including Gnome.

          Gnome 3 is a separate environment which runs on the Gnome Desktop it has a look of Unity and Gnome 2 combined. Mate is written off the code of Gnome 2. There is also Cinnamon, XFCE, KDE, LXDE, Pantheon, Sugar, Trinity and a few others. There are new ones created all the time (usually based on one of the main ones).

              Right now I have two computers running Linux: A Google Chromebook which runs Chrome OS, which is based off of Gentoo Linux and an Asus Zenbook which runs Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. On Ubuntu I use Gnome 3 mostly but sometimes ill switch back to Unity. Here is what Gnome 3 looks like:

              Ok so, how do you switch back and forth between Unity and Gnome 3. As in which do you download. If i’m making sense ?

              You can have multiple Desktop Envrionments (or Shells) with Ubuntu or any other distro of Linux. It’s good to keep it at only 1 or 2 though because a lot of them use completely different components that can cause problems with the others (such as different file managers, different window systems, etc). When you go to log into Ubuntu there will be a little circular icon next to your username, all your environments are listed there.

              There is also several look changers like in Zorin OS where it all uses the same desktop environment but has different themes such as Windows 7, Mac OSX etc.

              Ah makes. Thanks for clarifying 🙂

              I know it all sounds kind of confusing but once your actually using it, it’s pretty simple. There is a bit of a learning curve when using Ubuntu, but it is getting more and more user friendly with each new release and the Ubuntu Forums are excellent and can help you out with everything. Your best bet is to get a bunch of thumb drives and create live CD’s of each Ubuntu version you think you would be interested in (Mate, Unity, Gnome 3, Lubuntu etc.). Linux lets you create what’s called a Live CD (but can use thumb drive too) which basically lets you explore the OS without actually installing it.

              I never tried that one I have always used one of these two:

              Oh thanks. Do you know of one for OS X also ?

              Unetbootin has an OSX tool.

      Malware ? Where ? Have you ever heard about custom installation settings and antivirus software ?

        Haha must be a MSoft employee. Windows is a cespool of Malware and Spyware.

            That doesn’t even come close to making sense. It doesn’t take someone as wise as a grandmother to know that Window is horrible. Most children know it too.

              Calling me “MSoft emplyee” because I don’t agree with your not argumented opinion is automatical discussion loss.

              Besides that, to this reply I still have not heard an answer where do you get that malware and what do you do to fight it.

              Attacking other people for not liking Windows is what makes people think you work for them.

              Malware comes from a variety of places and what do you do to fight it? Download Ubuntu or Fedora or Arch or whichever Linux distro you like best 🙂 .

              “Malware comes from a variety of places”… What do you do to not get hit by a car ? You don’t walk on the streets, but you walk on pavement. If you are using untrusted sources, you do not set – you can get anything.

              Personally, I have been using my Windows PC and downloading software for years, but I didn’t get any malware or blue screens long time ago.

              A car can drive on the pavement and hit you, you can only control you own actions not those of the environment. You can take steps to avoid the actions of the environment though.

              What do I do to avoid a slow, antiquated system that is prone to viruses, malware and spyware? I avoid it all together by using something more stable and secure. That is my attempt to control the environment and it has worked out beautifully. I think your just afraid to try Ubuntu, afraid your years of praising Msoft would be for naught. Afraid you will fall in love with the speed, simplicity and security of it.

              Do you really think that malware can fall from the sky to your computer, like a car can hit you when walking on the pavement ?

              You can’t get malware without taking action first, and in case you do, there are plenty of security triggers which will block it(firewall, antivirus, etc.).

              Several well known companies have been caught hiding malware and spyware in what were considered perfectly legitimate appliacations that were completely undetectable. The NSA has been caught adding spyware to legitimate programs. So unless you never download a single program or open the internet you are never 100% safe from malware.

        are you playing silly or what?
        so do you think antivirus and custom installation settings are enough?

        so now you’re telling me that windows has been a virus proof system?

        do you know how antivirus work?
        never heard of virus that have not been recognized yet?

        i didn’t need any antivirus on my computer since i know the all registry tree and i used “regedit.exe” more than “explorer.exe” if you know what I’m talking about.

        and not, virus don’t affect dummy users only, just look at those billions of results you get googling Microsoft and virus
