Meizu Pro 5 delay to be just six days; $1.5 million to be spent on compensation to buyers
Today, the story has been changed. According to Meizu, the delay will last all of six days. And the reason for the tardy appearance of the phone has nothing to do with a typhoon. That is, unless typhoon is spelled NFC. Yes, a problem with the metal NFC back cover on the Pro 5 is said to be behind the delay.
The Meizu Pro 5 will now be released on October 18th. But the manufacturer is not walking away scot-free. Because of the delay, those who bought the phone will receive free accident insurance for it, valued at $31 USD. Additionally, those who purchased the 32GB model will receive a free headset valued at $20 USD. And purchasers of the 64GB unit will be receiving the $20 headset and $20 in Flyme coupons. Altogether, the compensation being paid to Meizu Pro 5 buyers will amount to $1.5 million USD. For Meizu, that is the cost of keeping its customers happy.
Thanks for the tip!
