As expected, Meizu is coming to India. The company announced the date by taking a dig at Xiaomi. Recently, at the Global Mi Phone Launch event in Delhi on April 23, CEO and Founder Lei Jun said “Are you ok?” after announcing free Mi Bands for the audience present at the event. This was blown out of proportion with parody music videos and more. However, Xiaomi played it cool by using “Are you ok?” in their own campaigns and sharing parodies made on the incident.
Meizu India taking a cheap shot at Xiaomi even before entering India is a bold statement to make but we hope they back it up with great products as well. Meizu is expected to launch the M1 Note in India to start off their journey. In case, they plan to unveil other devices, we would surely know in the run up to the launch date from teasers on their social media pages.
