Meizu's sales spike up by 50% - ships 1.5 million handsets in January alone
Meizu, a China-based manufacturer, has been making waves – steadily growing in popularity over the past year, the company has started to slowly make a name for itself in western markets as well. Its recepie for success is pretty similar to the slightly more famous Xiaomi – offer flagship hardware at a fraction of the cost. Meizu's designs are also pretty impressive, with both its flagships – the MX4 and MX4 Pro – sporting an impressively high screen-to-body ratio of ~75%, allowing them to house their huge displays in very compressed and easy to handle bodies.

The company also launched two very affordable midrangers – the M1 Note and M1 (a.k.a. the Blue Charm phones), sporting adequate specs at very aggressive prices, reportedly positioning them as a direct competitor to Xiaomi's Redmi series.

Well, it seems Meizu's crusade is being quite fruitful, as CEO Jack Wong took to social site Weibo and announced that the company has shipped 1.5 million handsets this past January. Think this is impressive? The company's shipments for December were around the 1 mil mark – meaning, sales have grown by 50% month-to-month.

Of course, this could just be a short spike in sales, due to the fact that the affordable M1 Note and M1 were only recently released. We'll see if Meizu manages to maintain its success and growth.
