Meizu, maker of devices such as the handsomely designed Meizu MX, on Wednesday announced its intentions to pursue the “untapped” U.S. market. The company said it will preview its upcoming smartphone lineup at CES, a lineup Meizu promises will combine the “elegance and functionality of today’s smartphones with consumer-friendly pricing.” Despite the dominance of companies like Apple and Samsung, Meizu believes there’s plenty of room for another U.S. player.
When we got our hands on the Meizu MX, we liked the device quite a bit. In fact, just about the only thing we found lacking was its inability to play nice with AT&T’s wireless bands. That, however, is all set to change now that Meizu is developing devices specifically for the U.S. market, though it’s unclear which carriers will offer the manufacturer’s devices. It’s been a long time since we spent a substantial amount of time with a Meizu device, but we’re actually quite excited to see what the company has in store.
