Meizu has confirmed that it doesn't have any plans of making an entry into the US market at the moment. The company's recently launched M6 Note was spotted a while ago on FCC, which sparked rumors of a possible attempt by Meizu to start selling its smartphones in the US. 

Company executive Ard Boudeling has disabused the public of that notion, however, saying, "“Meizu is not entering the US with smartphones at this time. We’re entering a number of other American markets, where FCC certification is also required.” While Meizu devices will not be sold under US carriers anytime soon, we expect them to be be sold in Mexico and, maybe, Canada in the near future.

Meizu looks to be one of the better Chinese OEMs out there, as their devices usually boast of relatively great quality control. The company is yet to reach the heights of other Chinese giants like Xiaomi, OPPO, and Vivo, however, which means that its much less known in western markets. Its persistence on using MediaTek SoCs may be another contributing factor to the lack of exposure, as Qualcomm's Snapdragon offerings are preferred in the west.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
