Meizu Android 5.0 Lollipop update roadmap leaks?

Meizu Android 5.0 Lollipop update roadmap leaks?
Meizu has been building some kick-ass Android models with its flagship Meizu MX4 topping the list of high scorers on the AnTuTu Benchmark site for all of last year. The Meizu MX4 Pro takes the MX4 to a slightly higher level, specs wise. Owners of these handsets are curious about when they will receive the Android 5.0 update. We might have the answer.

A chart found on Chinese social media site Weibo reveals a roadmap allegedly showing when Meizu plans on sending a brand new Flyme 4 user interface based on Android 5.0 Lollipop out to various models. The chart isn't the easiest thing in the world to understand, but we can come to some conclusions.

According to the roadmap, the Meizu MX4 Pro should be Lollipopped by the end of next month. That would match the time period when the update is expected to be sent to the Meizu MX4. The Meizu MX2 and Meizu MX3 should also receive the Android 5.0 Lollipop update before the end of May, which is quite remarkable given that the MX2 is a phone released in 2012. 

Good news is that Android 5.0 is also expected to come to the Meizu m1, the company's super affordable phone, sometime during this summer. Chances are that by referring to the Meizu m1, the roadmap also hints towards a Lollipop update fro the Meizu m1 Note (aka Blue Charm Note), a phablet in the same price tier and released around the same time.

The Android 5.0 build of Android brings Material Design, the Lock Screen notifications, 64-bit ART compiler that allows apps to open faster, longer battery life with Project Volta, the new 'Recent Apps' page and more.

Thanks for the tip!

I'd definitely go for Meizu over Xiaomi. Xiaomi is too chinese especially by the name and their design is too generic compared to Meizu.

"too chinese"? I don't know, the Mi Note is my favorite Chinese phone. In terms of design, it beats any thing else released in 2015 so far.
