    Somewhere I saw that new Meizu phones should have LTE Band 20 (800MHz). Does it any of these?

    Sad to see meizu have lost the plot. Releasing phone after phone with no indication of what direction they’re going. Something is not right, hopefully they improve in the coming months. Used to be a major fan of meizu but nowadays just dont have a clue what they’re trying to do.

      Yep me too, i used to recommend meizu to people i know, now every 2 weeks a phone of theirs will leak, this isnt a step in the right direction to me

      yep they out of their mind for sure. In their defense i still love meizu design and these look nice, but why they are intent on following xiaomis failing sales model is beyond me. Xiaomi went from being valued at 45 billion down to 4 billion in like a year. The pro 6 already seen a crazy price drop. Meizu seriously need some quality control, they have completely lost focus, absolutely no reason releasing these models they are almost identical spec wise as the M series phones. Utterly pointless. Real shame cos meizu is one of my favourite chinese companies.

    I like the looks of them but I am confused as to the purpose. Are they replacing the M series?

    • MattD

      I think that’s more of a “oneplus x” thing: a midrange made mostly to look good based on the general market trend… I think sells will tell if the M series will stay along side this one or if they’ll just replace it with this U series

      The specs are clashing with the M Note series tho. Besides the premium build, I don’t see the point.

      I think this is only for China market with YunOS.

        YunOS doesn’t work for other countries? What is the difference? Can someone explain. I really like the looks and i am looking for a new phone.

    These look very nice, but hard to see them as an improvement over the m3 except for perhaps aesthetically.

    U10 is 5 inch 720p likely MT6750
    U20 is 5.5 inch 1080p,MT6755m
    They don’t yet list proper specs.
