Meizu has managed to grow quite a bit in the last couple of years. The company has sold 4.4 million smartphones in 2014, and 20.5 million in 2015. As you can see, the company's growth is quite visible in their sales numbers, it remains to be seen what will happen by the end of this year though. Meizu has introduced three smartphones thus far this year, including their new flagship, the PRO 6. This company also manufactures audio equipment, we've already reviewed Meizu's HD50 headphones, which are actually quite good, Meizu did start as an mp3 player manufacturer after all.

That being said, Meizu is currently crowdfunding a sleek-looking speaker which has been designed by Hironao Tsuboi, a famous Japanese designer. The name of this speaker is 'Gravity', and it's actually a Wi-Fi and Bluetooth speaker which sports an interesting design, this is quite probably one of the nicest looking speakers we've ever seen. The prism used as part of this speaker's build actually makes it look like Gravity is floating in the air. The speaker also sports a heads-up display which will throw you all the necessary information. Meizu and Dirac have 20 years of experience in acoustical engineering, and we do expect the sound output of this speaker to be quite good, even though the speaker itself is quite small. The two companies have designed custom speakers specifically for Gravity, and they do include a dual passive resonance membrane for a more vigorous low-frequency output. The amplifier comes from Texas Instruments (TI), Meizu has used the latest 5-series chip provided by TI. Now, you'll be able to connect this speaker to your smartphone using the Gravity app, which will make it easy for you to change tracks and control the speaker in general.

The Gravity speaker is made out of aluminum and acrylic glass, which makes the speaker quite light and yet durable. Meizu has also used polyester fiber here, which is designed for high-end speakers and makes them dust-proof basically.
