Rumor: Meizu is also gunning for the VR market
Now, it seems the company wants to enter a new segment in the mobile market — VR. What looks like a job posting for a new division within the company has been leaked on Chinese tech website Anzhuo. The post clearly states that the company intends to dive in the world of VR, depicts a few different VR goggle sets, as well as shows the Flyme (Meizu's UI, built on top of Android) logo, and the Meizu mascot.
VR is still new and fresh, and quite frankly – a pretty narrow niche. On mobile, it's limited to watching 360-degree videos, or diving in visual experiences, and simple games, which sometimes don't even look good enough to make one dive in them in VR. The market is currently dominated by Samsung's Gear VR, which is, arguably, the best set for smartphone-powered VR available thanks to its numerous sensors, and the many $15 sets that can be bought under the Google Cardboard name. Should Meizu be planning to enter the fray, it needs a plan for differentiating itself or bringing something very new to the table. Otherwise, it may just sink in the sea of Cardboards.
