The first flagship Ubuntu phone

If you've been waiting for a powerful Ubuntu smartphone, today is your lucky day. Canonical has announced that the Meizu Pro 5 Ubuntu Edition is now on sale, officially giving Ubuntu a flagship phone to offer users.

The Meizu Pro 5 Ubuntu Edition features a 5.7-inch, 1080p display; a Samsung Exynos 7420 Octa-core processor; 32GB of storage; 3GB of RAM; a 21MP rear camera; and a USB-C port with fast charging — identical specs to the original Meizu Pro 5. Those specs sound lovely on paper, but we've had time with the device and found it far slower than your average top-tier smartphone.

If you're looking to go all-in with Ubuntu OS (or just want something different than Android and iOS), this is one of the few high-end phones that won't break the bank, coming in at $369 off contract. You can pick up a Meizu Pro 5 Ubuntu Edition from JD.com today.
