Kumamon, for those who are unaware, is the official mascot of Kumamoto prefecture in Japan, unveiled in 2010 with the opening of Kyushu Shinkansen ( the bullet train in Japan ) in order to promote tourism within the region. Kumamon gained wide popularity in 2011, when he was awarded the Yuru-kyara Grand Prix, a nationwide contest for the most popular mascot in Japan. The mascot has since been used by retailers and Manufacturers in attracting huge sales, and it appears Mizu wants to bank on the same popularity in selling its Meizu E3.
Aside from image, name and black paint job, the Special Kumamon Bear Edition Meizu E3 might spot the same designs and the internal makeup of the regular variant. More specs details and renders of the upcoming device can be found here.
