The Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition will make its debut at Mobile World Congress early next month.

No longer a rumour but fact: Meizu has confirmed the news on its social media accounts this morning, just as the latest flash sale for the Bq Ubuntu Phone was getting underway.

The MX4 is a powerful bit of kit and with super thin form factor and needle thin bezels looks hugely high-end, too.

It has a 5.36-inch LCD IPS display with a FHD resolution of 1920 x 1152 at 418 pixels-per-inch. It’s powered by an eight-core MediaTek processor and paired with 2GB of RAM. There are two cameras, with the rear camera boasting a mammoth 20-megapixels and 2160p video recording at 30fps.

The massive 3100mAh battery should also keep it running for ages.

Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition Specs:

  • 5.3-inch IPS LCD display (1920 x 1152, 418ppi)
  • Octa-core MediaTek MT6595 chipset
  • 2GB RAM
  • 20.7 MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing
  • 16GB built-in flash storage

It normally ships with FlymeOS and retails at roughly $300 for the 16GB model. At MWC, as part of Canonical and Meizu’s strategic partnership, an Ubuntu Edition of the MX4 will be shown off. Pricing and availability for the Ubuntu Edition is expected to be announced at MWC.

Meizu have said that the handset will be available “internationally”, though it remains unclear whether this includes the USA or not. We had previously heard that Meizu would offer the device in China and Europe only via an online store.
