Meizu, a Chinese smartphone maker, has launched its products in Pakistani market but surprisingly we have seen a very quiet way of launching. There has been no official launch ceremony and the company didn’t even release an official statement, other than their partnership with Jazz.

You should be surprised to hear that Meizu is one the top mobile phone brands in China and it competes against well-known brands like Huawei, Oppo and Lenovo. It has an official presence in Europe, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Russia, Egypt and quite recently India, Iran and Bangladesh.
Despite the fact the Meizu phones have a similar look to Apple iPhone, this Chinese smartphone maker has some unique features added to its phones, which includes the mTouch home key and the super-fast mCharge 4.0 technology.
Moreover, Meizu offers a unique approach on Android called Flyme OS, which adds more functionality to the Android operating system.

As stated earlier Meizu has launched three of their smartphones in Pakistan, namely the the MX6, M3 Note and M5. The “MX and M” are known as the mid-range series from Meizu. However company offers the “Pro” series dedicated for the high-end flagship devices while the “U series” is the low-end category.
While Meizu smartphones offer some decent specifications and the prices are at par with other markets, we’re yet to see how good these phones actually are. Moreover, Meizu will be facing a tough competition from Huawei and Oppo, since both companies are heavily spending in Pakistani market to capture the maximum share.
