With the Mobile World Congress approaching the end, the Ubuntu family has decided to step into the spotlights to reveal their two smartphones Meizu MX3 and BQ Aquaris, to make their market debut this fall. Ubuntu founder, Mark Shuttleworth stated at some press releases at the congress that the two Ubuntu smartphones will be revolutionary with their software, to future outperform the Microsoft Company. To launch these two devices, Ubuntu has partnered with the British people from Canonical, Meizu and BQ, as the names of the phones stand for.
Ubuntu phones are making their debut with the two companies, since each of them has had its share of success in the field. For instance, BQ in Europe has been successful due to their professional design-orientation, while Meizu in China, has been relying more on technological achievements, working with different smartphone companies.
Shuttleworth also said that the two phones will be made locally, and not globally, being more oriented towards China, which is their main market, and with Europe and the US on the second place.
But perhaps you are wondering: “What are the two smartphones offering?”
Shuttleworth states: “The hardware is pretty standout,” and he continues saying that “both companies have access to pretty top-notch design and manufacturing — and they care about it.”
On the other hand, Ubuntu also proudly states that its devices are convergent, as they work across devices, from PC to tablet and then to smartphone and so on.
We have seen to many brags about the phones, without seeing too much about the two smartphones` specs and features. We will see this fall if the devices are really worthy of their “true” performance. Don’t forget to write about it!
