Meizu had everyone guessing when it sent out an invite which said “Meizu Go Pro”, and the hint made some people guess that Meizu would be launching a new smartphone, which considering the “Pro” tag might come loaded to brim with features and high end hardware.
Recent Tweet by Nikos Komis begs to differ and instead shows off the Meizu Go Pro action camera in full glory. This new leak falls in line with the invite, thus hinting at a Go Pro like action camera launch at Meizu’s upcoming event. The person who tweeted the leaked photo didn’t divulge any other information about the action camera, thus at this juncture the details are still scarce.
The most intriguing part of this new action camera is the inclusion of “Go Pro” in the name, the only explanation seems to be that GoPro has joined hands with Meizu for the device in question, else it wouldn’t be wise for Meizu to use the name directly.
Alternatively, it might be a well conceived branding strategy by Meizu, to borrow the brand name in order to garner good support for the new product. That being said, it is still a piece of rumor and we will only get to know what Meizu has in store for us on September 23rd, the day of the event.
Earlier in the day, the rumor mills pointed out at a high-end feature packed Meizu flagship phone which would be fitted with a 1080p display and powered by the Exynos 7420 SoC, the same chipset that powers Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. The device is further said to have been codenamed NIUX followed by the bunch of renders leaked by Meizu VP Li Lan. Whatever might be the device, we are sure that Meizu will come up with something that’s mention worthy and will make a space for itself in the crowded smartphone market.
