Meizu Gravity, is a wireless speaker, that was announced way back in May 2016, as a crowd funding project on Indiegogo. This was the first step of Meizu towards the US market. The part where it stand-outs the most from others is it’s design. Designed by Tokyo based designer Kosho Tsuboi, this speaker looks like it’s floating in air, and provides rich hi-fi sound with a pretty deep bass. Meizu used to make MP3 players before making phones, so we can say music is inside the DNA of Meizu.
The goal of Meizu was to fund $100,000 through Indiegogo (though this doesn’t mean that Meizu was short on cash, as the firm is valued over $3 Billion USD). They successfully raised the funds and were ready to ship the product, but all of a sudden, they made an announcement that the shipments were delayed to Q1 2017.
Later when their founder Mr. Jack Wong, known for his perfection in Chinese tech world reviewed the product, he thought that there was some room for improvement. Meizu then made another announcement that the backers can take the refund, as the product was to be modified and remade, and it still was not clear how much time would it take.
Now, we spotted the speaker clearing 3C certification again ( Chinese Compulsory Certification, Chinese equivalent of FCC). The name listed is “Meizu Wireless Speaker”, and the model number is “Gravity A8”.
Does this mean that the speaker is going to launch soon? Some Weibo users also reported that Meizu Gravity will be launched on April 22 along with Meizu 15 and Flyme 7. So this gives us one more reason to eagerly wait for the launch day. Stay tuned for further updates.
