Meizu may not be one of the top-selling smartphone manufacturers in the world but it will be naive not to admit that their products keep other manufacturers on their toes.
Today, the Chinese-based company released a new device – the Meizu M6T, bringing the total number of its phones to 22 (under Blue Charm) since it began making phones. At the event which took place in Beijing, Meizu’s VP Li Nan announced that the Blue Charm division has sold over 50 million phones to date.
That is no doubt a small figure beside that of rival Xiaomi’s Redmi. The low figure is partly attributed to Meizu’s refusal to expand to other markets. However, things may change soon as the company restructured its leadership on May 15.
Li Nan is now a senior vice-president and the chief strategy officer while Yang Hao heads the marketing department and takes on the title of CMO. Both of them will report to CEO and Chairman Huang Zhang.
Mr. Nan also revealed that the Meizu M6T was specially released in time for the 618 shopping festival. He also added that other Meizu products like the Meizu PRO7 will be discounted during the festival.
