Chinese manufacturing giant Meizu seems to be putting some structures in place ahead of the coming year. Not too long ago, the company divided into three divisions – Meizu division, Blue Charm division and the Flyme division. While the Meizu division takes care of flagship smartphones, Blue Charm and the Flyme divisions handle mid-range/budget models and software aspect respectively. Now, there are reports that the Blue Charm division which is about to be renamed to mBlu will be headed by Meizu’s CEO/Founder, Huang Zhang. Prior to this info, Mr. Zhang heads the Meizu division while the Blue Charm division was controlled by long-standing Meizu VP, Li Nan.

This reshuffling was done to enable the division brand launch a major offensive next year as confirmed by Li Nan. As of now, we don’t know what happens to Li Nan or who will now head the Meizu division vacated by Mr. Zhang but amongst other things, Zhang will be involved in the product planning and building in the division. Meizu has released some amazing mid-rangers that could easily be taken for a flagship such as the Meizu Note 6 amongst others. However, it is believed that this company will celebrate its 15th anniversary in style by releasing a flagship or perhaps two products and Zhang is trying to keep an eye on Meizu’s smartphones whether flagship or mid-range.
