Meizu MX3 runs Ubuntu as well as Android
The Meizu MX3 is expected to be launched in the U.S. in the third quarter, and while we mentioned that Meizu could be working on an Ubuntu flavored handset, the video and pictures make it appear that the MX3 will be that handset. The Android version of the phone is expected to come with Android 4.2.2. out of the box.
Meizu's official Weibo account also includes a video of Ubuntu Touch running on the MX3. The video, and a photo, can be found below.

Awesome phone, but it should've run Android 4.4 out of the box. But since it's running that awesome Ubuntu as well, we can forgive about the 4.2, hope Meizu will update it to 4.4.

I'd forgive Android 4.1, since it still supports most apps and games
