Meizu Drops Plans to Develop a Pro 5 Mini Device
Latest reports coming out of China reveal that the Meizu has dropped plans of developing a skimmed 4.7-inch mini version of the Meizu Pro 5 which was expected to come to the markets in the upcoming months. This particular news was confirmed by none other than the Chinese company’s founder and CEO Huang Zhang on popular social networking website Sina-Weibo.
Zhang revealed the reason behind this change of plans was is the recent earthquake in Taiwan which has significantly affected their manufacturing and supply chain and has lead to most of the company’s inventory being damaged. Hanging on to the Pro 5 mini would have delayed the device beyond acceptable limits so they decided to ditch the project altogether.
He revealed that they tried their best to keep the device alive, but in the end decided against it as hanging on to the Pro 5 mini would have resulted in massive delays which would have been beyond acceptable limits. Zhang further revealed Meizu will now focus on developing and perfecting the Pro 6 instead.
