If you love Ubuntu then you might know about Ubuntu Edge which campaign never reach to the goal in 2013. I was quite thrilled to get that Ubuntu edge phone but end up with Nexus 4, so I could run latest Ubuntu Touch development. Canonical is partnered with Meizu a long ago and they are about to launch a new mobile "Meizu PRO 5" Ubuntu Edition. It will be the most powerful and rich-feature Ubuntu smartphone, I will take about specs in a bit. As you know Ubuntu recently announced it's first tablet which is made by Spanish company BQ.

Chinese smartphone manufacturer Meizu, jointly with Canonical, announces the launch of the Meizu PRO 5 Ubuntu Edition in Europe and China. This is the fifth Ubuntu device launched by Canonical and its partners in the last twelve months and the most sophisticated and feature-rich Ubuntu phone in the market. The Meizu PRO 5 Ubuntu Edition will be available for pre-order during MWC across Europe and China on Meizu’s website.
