Nokia and Meizu to collaborate on a new MX4 phone, rumors say
Meizu's MX4 and MX4 Pro are very well made, powerful, and relatively affordable smartphones, which are, unfortunately, not that readily available to western markets. Apparently, Meizu does have the desire to sell its phones outside of Asia, however, it fears the handsets might lack a certain appeal to westerners' tastes – if this latest rumor from China is to be believed, that is.

A number of tech blogs have reported that Meizu will be partnering up with Nokia on a MX4 Supreme (alleged code name) – a smartphone, which will retain the shape and razor-sharp bezels, signature for Meizu's recent flagships, but will have its coloring, hardware, and software decided upon by Nokia. The phone will still bear the Meizu moniker, since the Finnish company is still not allowed to commercialize phones under its name, due to the Microsoft deal.

How about it, guys – anyone excited to see a Nokia phone sticked in a bezelless Meizu design come to fruition?

People want a phone with the NOKIA logo on it, not a phone that says Meizu....

That's correct but if Meizu is backed by Nokia with h/w, s/w, etc. and its known to people then why not.

Not advise them of anything else?

Pfft...because they are doing great all on their own.

Nokia should teach them how to build the ENTIRE thing from scratch.

Wow!!! That's really a great news.

Meizu's Flyme OS looks cool though.

Wise decision to ditch EU and collaborate with China, only this Nokia will survives.

Nokia divided to two, one with US and the other one with China, who will have happy ending?

So? WP is so underestimated, it is human nature to fear trying anything new, if people just give the WP a try they would love it, just like how people resisted Android for the sake of Symbian.

its true. no doubt about WP being capable, but WP does lag in easy to use OS, i have seen android people coming back to android bcz they were not able to do basic tasks in WP with ease as they used to do in android, i know there are many apps they can download to do it in a similar ways as they did in android phone, but y any one need to learn a new OS? when every thing is done easily ?

+1 to that comment, but China's average population does have an income of lower that 600 USD per month so a high end smartphone would be hard for them to purchase (HIGH END NON-CHINESE SMARTPHONE).

nokia is far from loser, whatever oem you like they pay royalities to nokia. blackberry, apple, samsung, lg, huawei, htc, lenovo and so many. even chinese govt respect nokia and pay for patents.

nokia is not greedy thats why its revenue is low. but if nokia decide not to licence its patent to chipmaker like quallcom and instead ask royalities of $1 for every phone made then nokia will earn billions. do remember nokia has around 40 essential patents which needed to make smartphone

Totally true. Nokia have hundreds of patents in terms of cellular devices and networking.

I would love to see Nokia back. But there is nothing Nokia about this phone. Looking forward to 2016 when Nokia can start selling smartphones under its own brand name.

I'd support Nokia through strawman builds like this.

Bring it.

Interesting! Then next Year they are allowed to come out with Nokia labelled phones, so this could be a warm-up.

They should sell their products widely, both evenly in the continent of asia as well as europe and american no matter how (method of sales),i'm waiting come to my country (Indonesia, Southeast Asian) because Meizu MX4 pro have good quality product and affordable price for everyone, so that's great point to competing and fight the others brand.

The phone does not look Nokia at all. I wish to see Lumia-looking android phones. How nice it will be to have android on Nokia 930.
