Purchase The Meizu Pro 5 Ubuntu Edition From Online Store jd.com
For those of you eagerly awaiting the arrival of the most powerful Ubuntu smartphone yet, I am here to tell you that your wait is over. Online e-commerce store jd.com which is the only affiliated official store to sell the handset has got it listed on their website with free shipping to US and Europe.
The Meizu Pro 5 is not the first phone or only device to feature Canonical’s Ubuntu Touch mobile operating system as Spanish company BQ has launched handsets with the aforementioned operating system.
But, the Meizu Pro 5 Ubuntu Edition is most powerful smartphone that comes with Ubuntu Touch preinstalled. It should be noted though that the it is not the current most powerful handset launched by the Chinese company because the same variant of the device which runs Android was released last year.
This year’s flagship lineup from the Chinese OEM features a Pro 6 which comes with MediaTek’s 10-core Helio X25 processor.
Meizu Pro 5 Ubuntu Edition is powered by Samsung’s Exynos 7420 octa-core processor and comes with different RAM and onboard storage configurations with a starting price of $399.99.
But jd.com only listed the 32/3GB variant of the Meizu Pro 6 Ubuntu Edition and buyers are stuck with only one color option which is Gold.
It is quite unclear why other options of the device are not listed on the website and it is also disappointing as JD happens to be the only official store for the device.
We will be monitoring the site to see if anything changes. Stay tuned!
