The Meizu X4 is the first compelling Ubuntu phone

Chris Hoffman | May 21, 2015
We've been hearing about Meizu's forthcoming Ubuntu-powered smartphone since early 2014--more than a year ago. Well, all those words just became tangible, and they've coalesced into the first compelling-looking Ubuntu phone.

We don't know anything about when the USA will get a Ubuntu phone or what the device will be. OMG Ubuntu reports that Canonical will be announcing details of a forthcoming Ubuntu phone in June. Canonical will be partnering with a different smartphone manufacturer to create and release a new phone for the US market, according to the report. Unfortunately, we haven't heard anything about phones for the rest of the world.

This forthcoming phone may be the same one that offers Ubuntu's long-teased convergence features. After all, Canonical promised it would announce a new phone with smartphone-PC convergence features after Microsoft revealed its own smartphone-PC convergence plans with Windows 10 for phones.
