Meizu MX6 Ubuntu Edition leaked, features 10-core Processor

We had earlier reported about a new Ubuntu Phone in making code named Midori, and now the news seems true. In a tweet from Android Headlines we not just only get the image of Meizu MX6 Ubuntu Edition but also it's price which is €399.99.

The latest Ubuntu Phone is one of the superior phones in terms of specifications. Running on Mediatek MT6797 Helio X20 10-core processor, it will be first phone to run on 10-core processor. Also, it will come in a 5.5-inch display 1080x1920, 3GB RAM and 32GB Storage. Like the Meizu Pro 5 Ubuntu Edition, it will feature a finger print scanner and will come with a 4000mAh battery. The front camera will be 8MP and the primary one will be 20.7MP.

Canonical has promised that all future Ubuntu Phones will come with support for Convergence and running on a powerful hardware, the Meizu MX6 Ubuntu Edition is expected to create a wave in the Linux world.

Canonical is doing one thing right, it's not repeating the mistake of Firefox OS. It is delivering high specs and high end phones so the buyer do not have to try something on a below par hardware. The one thing that's need to be worked is the better performance and smoothness in using the Ubuntu Touch. It still lags a bit and the left/right movement is not so smooth. 

We cannot anymore say that Ubuntu Phones are still new, there has been more than 5 handsets released in last one year and we expect a better experience at least in using the Phone, keep aside the apps as of now. 

What do you think? Running on a 10-core processor, will Meizu MX6 Ubuntu Edition create a space for Ubuntu Phone in the Android/iOS dominant market? Will you buy one? Tell us in the comments!

    1. If that would have been the case, non of the iPhones would sell ever. Yes, there are more in less for many things out there. But Ubuntu on Phone is surely bringing a change in a manner which not all but many are excited about. Would love to see it, buy it and use it for myself.

  2. This is a great development, next stop, the app store, not so much a gazillion apps, but rather high quality apps and scopes which are gorgeous and highly functional.

    1. Very well said. We don't need all the apps in a month, we want the basic apps like Facebook, Messenger, WhatsApp, a hangout app - well polished, without bugs, working perfectly. Canonical should seriously think on that.

    2. I agree, address the basics, usual suspect apps people use functioning well in ubuntu. Perception has paved the way of negativity currently being rode on by platforms outside of the duopoly of Android and iOS, which is quite sad. Ubuntu, Sailfish and W10M are all beautifully laid out and highly functional platforms. How do you change the fickle many onto a platform like Ubuntu ? Lots of hard work, and no we don't need an Android runtime to help close the gap, why not just purchase a Samsung Galaxy series phone onetime ?

  3. Ubuntu phones need to ship with the ability to run android apps (in containers, or other) and have access to the Google Play store. Then I would buy one.

  4. My Samsung SII Android is currently dying... This is at the top of my list as a replacement.

  5. Guys this is huge in terms of security, privacy, and hackiness. Finally there is a real chance to see community-driven developments for UI, which is very, very hard to get right.
    OnePlus should support Ubuntu, they would drag a lot of hackers/security aware people.
