First Meizu smartwatch gets leaked in alleged photos, could be announced August 10


Smartwatches might be in an uncomfortable place right now, sales-wise, but this won't be stopping Meizu from putting out what looks like a compelling wearable! Alleged photos of the prominent Chinese smartphone maker's first smartwatch surfaced online, giving as a look at one finely designed circular smartwatch.

There's also a shot of the purported smartwatch's retail packaging – a gray circular box stamped with the Meizu logo. It looks quite appropriate for the device, though we can't help but wonder why the source wouldn't let us have a peek inside. Perhaps they have their reasons!

Regardless, the watch will feature customizable wallpapers, tan leather straps, and three control buttons to the right of the watch body. According to rumors, the wearable will be powered by a Rockchip RK6321 SoC with two Cortex A5 cores, which sounds rather modest. We'll have to assume the Meizu watch won't run Android Wear, as the platform strictly employs Qualcomm chips.

The wearable could be revealed August 10, as Meizu has sent out invites for an event. Allegedly, said event has to do with the upcoming Meizu Metal 2 smartphone – an affordable handset with a 5.5-inch, 1080p resolution screen that's driven by a MediaTek Helio P10 chip with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage in the base model. It seems we'll be hearing from Meizu pretty soon, so stay put for more news.

Tizen sucks because it has no support.

"Smartwatches might be in an uncomfortable place right now, sales-wise" IMO this happens with a reason, the fact that smartwatches are not capable to run longer time and have more apps available installed as stand alone.

100% ripoff from Nevo Watch.

It's a watch man, that means any design has most likely been done a 100 times over, if not more.

I looked it before I posted my reply. my point was that there is defiantly more than one other watch with this design. Similar/copied designs with minor changes are to be expected when it comes to watches, given how many there are.

Look at the BS specs. Samsung are using 2gb Ram and E7420 on thier SmartWatch.

and this Nevo watch ripping off other design. On a serious note; this is 2016, people nowadays doesn't invent. They implements, imitate but make a distinct features. You cant just say this is a rip-off or a copy without actually fill the rules of why certain items, songs, product fall into plagiarism category.

"as the platform strictly employs Qualcomm chips" What about the Moto 1st gen with its TI Instruments chip?
