Meizu launched its brand-new MX smartphone in China, attracting quite a crowd in the process. In that sense, the day when the new device started selling resembles the Meizu M9 launch last year when we’ve seen long lines formed at stores in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Zhuhai. This time round, Meizu also launched its product in Hong Kong, which is their first step outside of mainland China.
Customers who pre-ordered the device last year got a priority treatment and went home with an Android-powered smartphone. On the other hand, not all walk-in customers got their Meizu fix since supply was “very limited.”
In related news, a Meizu engineer said on the company’s forum that from now on, all Meizu devices, the M9 included, will receive both a vanilla OS build and a build customized by Meizu. However, customers will have to pick the system once and won’t be able to switch between the two — at least not using any official app.
