Not long after it has been launched, Meizu’s current flagship, the MX4 Pro, is said to be ending production. This bit of news came from Meizu Turkey’s Facebook page in a post that has been taken down since. More likely than not, MediaTek’s latest investment in the Chinese smartphone manufacturer played a role in this odd decision.
In Meizu’s range of devices, the MX4 Pro is one of the very few smartphones that is powered by Samsung’s Exynos chipset. For this very reason, many are speculating that the possible discontinuation of this smartphone is caused by MediaTek’s recent investment in Meizu.
Meizu Turkey’s Facebook post isn’t the only indication that the MX4 Pro could be ending production as well. In China, the flagship smartphone is now retailing for 1,999 Chinese yuan (about RM1,145), which is a 500 yuan price cut from its original asking price of 2,499 yuan (around RM1,430). Could Meizu be making way for the rumoured MX5?
In any case, if you’re keen to get Meizu’s current flagship, we’d suggest to give your local retailer a visit. Although Meizu itself has been quiet about this rumour and has not confirmed anything yet, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
