The day before yesterday, Meizu took to Weibo to release a poster without giving out many details. As said by Meizu, it will be an “indescribable new product”. The poster itself is not very descriptive although it does hint towards an Ai powered device, possibly an AI speaker. The event for the mystery device is scheduled for a 22nd of April unveiling, same time as the Meizu 15 Series.
The major giveaway is the “Wake me when you need me” caption on the poster that is clearly a pointer to the direction of AI and its applications. What’s intriguing are the two laser-like lines, reminding us of lightsabers. So is it going to be a Star Wars themed AI product? Can’t really say anything for sure, but the idea does seem cool.
With the market for smart tech booming, especially with major technology companies working towards smart speakers, Meizu would definitely not want to be the last one to delve into it. With Xiaomi making smart speakers and Google bringing their Google Home speakers to more and more countries, many manufacturers are looking to exploit this opportunity. We’ll know for sure what Meizu has up their sleeves exactly 8 days from now. Stay tuned for more!
