Made by Chinese company Meizu
Ubuntu-powered smartphones are still relatively new to the market. Despite that, the company is confident that the platform can take off much like how iOS, Android and even BlackBerry started.
The company has teased a mystery product on their Facebook page that hints a new smartphone launch powered by Ubuntu. Meizu has been experimenting with various OSes on some of their smartphones and it seems this upcoming release may run on Ubuntu’s platform.
The platform in question is Ubuntu Touch, which uses a uniform kernel and other technologies that can work on any platform. This ensure that the smartphone has a high level of compatibility since Ubuntu itself works with desktops. The same scheme is being implemented by Microsoft on Windows 10, which will see one operating system running on smartphones, tablets, notebooks and desktops.
Expect a full announcement by Meizu on their Ubuntu phone at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona later this month.
