As per the reports, Meizu is holding an event on September 5 in China where it is expected to launch the Meizu Max smartphone. For the same, the company has started sending out invites.

The Meizu Max has gained wide attention with rumors that it will be coming with a large 6-inch display. The smartphone is likely to join the large screen trend re-started by Xiaomi with the Mi Max.

Though, as per GSM Arena, the Meizu Max smartphone could be launched at RMB 1,799 (approx US $270 or INR 18,200).
Apart from this, company is expected to launch Meizu Pro 7 smartphone on September 13 which is said to be the successor of Meizu Pro 6.

But, it comes with a lot of features at a price that makes the smartwatch quite worthy as per its price tag. The new wearable by Meizu comes with LED notification light, Bluetooth 4.0 support to pair it with smartphones using Meizu app, vibration alerts and more. According to media reports, the smartwatch has a Sapphire Glass, which makes it sturdy and scratch-resistant.
