Meizu is another Chinese company who thinks it can expand successfully beyond its domestic market, where it’s among the top 10 phone makers. However, the firm isn’t exactly new, as it has been founded back in 2003, but it expanded into the smartphone market only in 2008. And now it seems to be aiming for the booming mobile market, which is quickly nearing an amazing number of 1 billion users.
The company has now launched an official Meizu India Facebook Page and has also announced a contest to promote their entry into the country. Meizu has been populating its page with details regarding the Meizu M1 Note, so there’s a big chance that this device will soon become available for Indians shoppers.
Along with the M1 Note, which is an iPhone 5c rip-off, the company has some other Apple-inspired devices in its portfolio, such as the Mx4 Pro and the Mx4. The company also has some Ubuntu-powered smartphones in its portfolio, but this operating system hasn’t really become popular among users.
Meizu will be joining other Chinese companies such as Xiaomi, OnePlus and Vivo who have targeted India as one of their most important markets. Even if Meizu has been copying the design from Apple’s products, the company makes some high-quality products with great specs at affordable prices. It will be interesting to see how will this fight between these booming companies unfold on Indian soil.
