Meizu to sell its wares in North America?

Meizu to sell its wares in North America?
Like what you've seen of the Meizu PRO 5 so far? If you live in North America, you might soon end up with the opportunity to purchase Meizu-branded handsets. Meizu VP Li Nan says that the company is keeping a close eye on what is happening in the U.S. smartphone market, with an eye toward eventually participating in it. And because Meizu is looking to sell directly to consumers, it won't have to worry about having to form a close relationship with one or more of the top stateside mobile operators.

Last month alone, Meizu increased its sales four fold to 2.89 million units. That is quite a figure considering that last year, it sold all of 5 million handsets. The MX4 received some publicity last year, by being the top scoring phone on the AnTuTu benchmark site.

Many of the Chinese smartphone manufacturers are at a point where they have a name that is known by smartphone fans in North America despite not participating in the market. Xiaomi is a case in point. But before these companies start spending money on promotion and fulfillment in North America, they are waiting for the perfect opportunity. That might require another year of watching and waiting until the perfect opportunity presents itself for Meizu in North America.

You would have to think that if Xiaomi is being cautious about creating a U.S. presence at this time, the much smaller Meizu also has to wait.
