    * 13mp camera with 4K recording. real focus and stabilisation.
    * 4G, LTE
    * Hi-Res screen
    * Look into stylus option
    1) Overkill. If you need such stuff, smartphones are last thing You need. Batteries will not simply hold.
    2) 4G, LTE in China? Maybe in this year. Maybe not in the next few.
    3) OK
    4) Duno if China alphabet is easy for stylus like operation.

    And You ommited:

    5) English support

      dont mind the naysayers.
      canonical is putting a lot of effort into this attempt now. i am confident this will be the first step for the device range from mobile/tablet to tv to desktop

        I'm one of those who don't know much about what's popular in China so does anyone know if slider keyboards and removeable batteries are popular there? I ask because it would be nice to import such a device running Ubuntu Touch.

          the article comment is slightly racist and condescending be kind to your new masters

          sorry Michael I appreciate all your hard work i really do but your comment was unnecessary


          China has 1 Billion People.
          One of the fastest if not THE fastest growing economies on earth.
          A natural suspicion now fully proven of the west and its dark surveillance techniques mean no trust for Microsoft / Apple / Google / Cisco / HP and countless others
          A desire to run Opensource code that can be poured over by their own agents ( for good or bad)

          For me it means Canonical make a shit ton of money. And that means they have the resources to make an OS that takes me away from Google for good. I already ditched Microsoft like many.

          In the end my storage, network , streaming, phone and desktop and gaming box are all Opensource

          You must see this as a positive incentive for continuation of real open source hardware products as computing evolves to more exotic hardware

            How is pointing out that the anti-chinese mentality is common in western cultures, racist? Is it homophobic to point out that the american south and midwest is very intolerate of homosexuals?

              Chinese company MUGEN Power make smartphone batteries.
              Although, I've heard people say that Chinese batteries are poor quality.

                Thanks but I'm asking about phones that have slide out keyboards and removeable batteries and if those are popular in China. I'm just hoping an Ubuntu phone like that comes out so I can import it.

                About Mugen. I have used Mugen extended batteries in the past and they never really did live up to their advertised specs and seemed to lose capacity faster than the original batteries. Good thing the people here are saying Meizu makes good quality devices.
