Meizu has something to reveal on May 18 in India, takes a shot at Xiaomi too

First Micromax’s Yu Televentures and now even Meizu is poking fun at Xiaomi and it has done so while teasing the upcoming launch of its first device in India. The Chinese OEM has posted an image to social media which hints that a new smartphone will be unveiled on May 18.

What’s more, the teaser also reads the words ‘Are you ok?’ which is in reference to video (embedded below) on Xiaomi’s CEO during his recent appearance in India for a the Mi 4i launch, which has gained a lot of popularity online. Meizu and Xiaomi are both top competitors in China and the former is looking to go up against the giant in India as well.
