Rumor returns: Meizu and Nokia to partner on the mysterious MX4 Supreme?

Back in January, we passed along a rumor that Meizu and Nokia would get together to produce a new handset called the Meizu MX4 Supreme. While the phone was said to include some of the trademark looks associated with Meizu, it was supposed to feature hardware, software and coloring selected by Nokia. Because of the Microsoft deal, Nokia wouldn't be able to put its name on the handset.

The very next day, Meizu's Vice President of Science and Technology, Li Nan, denied that it was working with Nokia on a new handset. And the rumor might have died right then and there, except for a new rumor that came out of China on Monday.

The rumor came in the form of a poster which was published on a Weibo account. We're not sure what it all means, especially the mention of the rumored Nokia Lumia 1030. Considering that the speculation about the Lumia 1030 mentions a 50MP rear camera, the poster could be hinting at a 60MP rear snapper for the Meizu MX4 Supreme. After all, a phone with the name of Supreme is going to have to be crammed with some mighty impressive specs. The original rumor from January mentioned that the Supreme would probably feature razor-thin bezels and be made available both inside and outside China.

As we said, Meizu has already denied that it is working with Nokia on a new phone. But perhaps this is a case where the lady doth protest too much.

lol true. They've already copied Apple with their tablet design, it wouldn't be surprising that they are copying Samsung's name now.

Doesn't MS own the Lumia name? So this would prove pre-ms buyout?

If it comes to Europe with xenon and blasts the competition with the camera, I'll go for it. If not, S6 Edge it is.

Nokia can put out a smart phone with the Nokia brand name in 2016. hopefully Nokia will be smart and put out a Nokia brand Android and a Nokia brand Windows 10 smart phones as well. Microsoft is now making new Microsoft brand Lumia smart phones to replace all it's Nokia brand lumia smart phones. if you like Nokia designed Lumia Windows smart phones such as the 920,1020, 1520, ect. you had better buy one now because very soon Microsoft will stop having them made but will still support them.
