Meizu's MX4 Pro was one of 2014's phones that offered best value for the money, combining top-end specs with premium design and an affordable price tag. Amidst the rumors that Meizu might actually launch a "Pro" version of its MX5 flagship smartphone, а somewhat unfortunate piece of news coming from the highest level of Meizu's HQ will most certainly make all users anticipating the MX5 Pro a bit sad.
The VP of Meizu, Li Nan, heavily hinted that the MX Pro lineup, along with the rumored MX5 Pro high-end champion, will be scrapped in favor of a new super-premium device lineup. This means that the current MX5 will probably remain the only top-end device in the company's product portfolio.
All of these changes are reportedly done so as to help the company grow and become a more prominent player on the smartphone scene.
When it comes to the new premium line of phones, Li Nan didn't reveal an approximate launch period for the next high-end Meizu bijou. One thing is for sure, though - it will take Meizu some time to develop a smartphone from the ground up.
Just a couple of days ago, Meizu once again reclaimed its intention to continue rocking the affordable market niche by announcing the Meizu M2, an entry-level trooper that comes with quite the specs sheet and will cost you less than $100.
