Meizu Blue Charm Note to be powered by an OS similar to Sailfish?

Meizu Blue Charm Note to be powered by an OS similar to Sailfish?
Tomorrow, Meizu will hold its media event at which time we expect to see the Meizu Blue Charm and Meizu Blue Charm Note introduced. The former is a 4.6-inch handset, while the latter is believed to be a 5.5-inch phablet. A couple of pictures show the two models not running the manufacturer's Flyme UI. Instead, it looks like the phones are powered by a modified version of the Sailfish OS.

We really don't expect Meizu to dump Android at this point, especially since the Sailfish OS comes up short when compared with Google's open source OS. The pictures could show a Sailfish launcher running on top of Android 4.4.

We should know exactly what side of the bread Meizu is buttering as soon as tomorrow. That is when we will see the wrapping removed from the Blue Charm and Blue Charm Note. The latter just recently received certification in China from TENAA, which revealed that the handset will feature the aforementioned 5.5-inch screen, with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. Under the hood is a 64-bit octa-core 1.7GHz MediaTek MT6752 CPU. Inside you will find 2GB of RAM with 16GB of native storage. The back and front-facing cameras weigh in at 13MP and 5MP respectively, and a 3050mAh battery keeps the lights on.

So just what is the story with the OS to be used on these new models? Meizu will surely pass along the correct identification tomorrow, and once we know, we will pass the word on right to you. Stay tuned!


Thanks for the tip!
