Auto giant Geely bought Meizu to launch its smartphones – News

The rumors that appeared at the beginning of the year were officially confirmed. The Chinese concern Geely, which owns the brands Volvo, Polestar, Lotus, Smart and others, intends to try its hand at the smartphone market. To do this, the company acquired Meizu, a well-known manufacturer of Android gadgets and accessories.

The details of the deal, including its amount, have not yet been disclosed, but there is information that the Meizu acquisition documents have already been signed. Neither party has yet made a relevant statement, but the first rumors of a merger of companies appeared on the Internet about six months ago.

It is worth noting that Meizu has developed its own Flyme for Car car system, which is an alternative to Google Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Distinctive features of the brainchild of the Chinese company are the emphasis on child safety, the ability to track the situation in the cabin and the function of repelling mosquitoes – no one else has this.

Previously, Geely established a subsidiary of Hubei Xingji Shidai Technology to develop and manufacture mobile devices. According to rumors, former top managers of OPPO, Xiaomi and ZTE work in it. In addition, the company has patented several smartphone designs.
