It’s called Zero. And it comes not from Apple nor Samsung nor Huawei not even Sony. High chances probably you don’t even know or heard before about this company.
Yesterday Meizu – for those who doesn’t know, it’s a company name and not a person name – announced Zero or should I called its full name: Meizu Zero – so not to be confused with number zero – the world first Smartphone without ports and buttons.
What? No ports nor buttons nor SIM Card slot?
First of all, do you guys even know Meizu?
Googling Meizu on the Internet got me this:
Meizu Technology Co., Ltd. is a Chinese consumer electronics company based in Zhuhai, Guangdong. Founded in 2003 by Jack Wong, Meizu began as a manufacturer of MP3 players and later MP4 players. In 2008, Meizu moved its focus to smartphones .
So actually it’s a pretty brand new company, especially if compared to veterans Apple, Samsung, Sony and even Huawei.
I used to mock China with their products – though I love them at the same time: fake, bad quality but damn cheap. As a student 10-15 years back, I couldn’t afford Apple iPod but I was so into MP3 and MP3 players. So I bought cheap iPod-like MP3 player which probably produced by Meizu – since the company began operation from about the same timing as when I bought my first MP3 player.
These days, I can no longer mock Chinese products. While there are still -plenty of fake, bad quality and damn cheap products offered by them, at the same time today Chinese companies can also offer products that are even better compared to what Western, Japan and Korea could offer and yet they are still considerably cheap.
