A rather interesting Meizu poster surfaced on Weibo (Chinese social network), this image essentially teases a joint event between Meizu and Nokia, though neither of the two companies confirmed this just yet. If you take a look at the provided image, you will see Nokia’s well-known handshake, and a caption, in Chinese, has been attached to this image as well. This caption roughly translates to: “paying tribute to the classic”, and in addition to that: “Meizu Blue Charm and Nokia Joint Conference Next Month”.
So, what’s this all about? Well, we still do not know, but it is possible that the two companies are planning to release a smartphone together, or perhaps Nokia plans to release a phone running Meizu’s Flyme OS (or simply announce that it is coming to one of their existing phones), which is not that unlikely. Meizu actually released Flyme OS for a number of smartphones quite recently, which was a major surprise, though Nokia was not one of them. Well, the company might join that list in the near future, as that is the most probable outcome of the aforementioned press conference, it is actually most likely that they will announce Flyme 6 availability for one of the Nokia-branded Android-powered smartphones, the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 or Nokia 6.
Meizu’s Flyme 6 OS is considerably different than stock Android, and yet there seem to be quite a few people that enjoy using it. Meizu managed to surprise quite a few people when they announced that beta versions of Flyme 6 are available to a ton of smartphones out there (approximately 60), including some really popular handsets, like the OnePlus 3T, Samsung Galaxy S6, Nexus 6P, Sony Xperia Z3… and so on. Flyme 6 OS had been announced last year, and its Chinese variant is currently available for a number of Meizu-branded devices, while a global version of Flyme 6 will start rolling out to Meizu’s smartphones soon, the company recently confirmed. It’s also worth noting that the company announced the Meizu M5c recently, which is the first Meizu-branded smartphone to ship with global Flyme 6 build pre-installed, and it’s the company’s budget phone. Now, as far as the press conference is concerned, all we can do at this point is sit and wait for some kind of confirmation from either Meizu or Nokia.
