One of China’s biggest, Meizu, planning to start selling phones in US come 2014
Meizu makes one of the most popular smartphones in China. Known for its Apple-esque designs in devices sold for much lower than Apple’s prices, but still with top-notch specs, Meizu is now planning to expand its outreach all the way to the United States in 2014. 

The company has announced its intentions to bring devices to the US without specifying model names, but if its 128GB Meizu MX3 top-shelf offering is one of them, it could definitely get the attention of tech lovers with its fairly unique plentiful storage.

The company says explicitly it "believes there's room in the U.S. market for another player." Still, in order to make a proper debut in the United States, Meizu is also facing the challenge of bundling in US-specific cellular data bands and 4G LTE in particular.

Good news is that Meizu is looking at this as a long-term opportunity to stay in the United States rather than a one product run and gun affair, and this might help it deliver a well-rounded product.

Finally, Meizu mentioned it will also bring its devices to the Consumer Electronics Show starting in just a few weeks in Las Vegas, for a taste of what’s to come. We will be covering the show live, so stay tuned.

I hope Meizu will not end up like Huawei, I don't wish to see another news about a Chinese company being forced to leave the US market.

Because you know some Americans, they will say the same thing like they say about Huawei. "Meizu is spying for the Chinese government, don't buy their products."
"Meizu will steal our personal information, don't buy their products."

But good luck Meizu, wish you all the best.

Isn't it the US who spies other nations?

And insults diplomats of other nations while expecting their Gay diplomats not to be touched even if being gay is considered against the law in certain countries. They symbolize "Hypocritism" like no other.

Well Huawei wasn't really forced out of the US they actually chose to leave, because of the accusations the government was saying about them.

If Apple loses sales anything can happen ... starting woth patent trolling against them also ... but if they are forced to leave US then who knows even Apple maybe forced to leave China. China doesn't love American companies much. They have turned the heat on CISCO in a tit for tat game suspecting spying ...

In this case that really does look like an iPhone. I would want every chip's software examined and random unit checks before I would trust a purely Chinese phone.

Everybody is spying on everybody, whatever who cares. The US Government can in a instant turn every cell phone, every computer, every cam, every Xbox.. ANYTHING that has a camera for video and a microphone for sound on and watch.

I like the design of the icons on its UI. Very flat, clean, simple, but attractive.

If china phones sold in the US with 4g lite,the xiamoi or mi3 would have been top phone of the year hands down.
