We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Meizu is one of the few Chinese company that likes to experiment with its products. They’ve tackled Exynos CPUs, Ubuntu OS and they even have models with the Alibaba YunOS. Two such handsets debuted this week, the Meizu U10 and U20.
These models were launched in China, powered by Alibaba’s YunOS platform. Keep in mind this is no premiere, since Meizu also has the M1E device in its portofolio, with the same platform on board. These U series new models are part of the Blue Charm series and come with a metal frame, a glass panel at the back and front and midrange specs.
The Meizu U10 brings a 5 inch screen, an octa core CPU and comes in two versions: one with 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage and one with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. The U10 also brings a 13 MP camera, a 5 MP selfie shooter, a 2760 mAh battery and the mTouch 2.1 fingerprint scanner embedded in the Home button. The U20 is a bit larger, at 5.5 inches and it’s a Full HD device, with an octa core CPU as well. It also comes in the same two versions as the U10 and brings a 13 MP back shooter, front 5 MP snapper and a 3260 mAh battery.
The U10 is priced at $150 in the 2 GB RAM version and $180 in the 3 GB RAM one. The U20 starts at $165 and tops at $195.
