Flyme OS is what Meizu calls its own skin placed on top of Android. And Flyme 5 is its latest iteration, which has so far only made it to the Meizu Pro 5 and the MX5. Yet if you own one of the company’s other handsets, here’s some good news.
A beta build of Flyme 5 will become available tomorrow for the MX4, MX4 Pro, as well as the m1 note. You won’t get the beta through an over-the-air software update though, you have to download it from Meizu and manually install.
The final build of Flyme 5 for these three devices will go out as an OTA update sometime before the Chinese New Year, which in 2016 is on February 8. Unfortunately there’s still no word from Meizu on whether Flyme 5 will make it to other handsets, or when. And don’t forget to keep in mind the fact that the Flyme update does not bring with it a new version of Android – it’s just the skin that’s changing.
