Canonical today announced the launch of the MX4 Ubuntu Edition, made by its handset partner Meizu. Ubuntu is Canonical's version of Linux. Its latest build is based on a feature Canonical calls Scopes, which are a new way to interact with music, social, web, and photo apps directly on the home screen. Canonical explains, "The richness and unfragmented experience delivered by Ubuntu Scopes is a world away from burying content and services inside multiple apps in an icon grid." Canonical says there are more than 1,300 Scopes available to handset owners in the Ubuntu Store. The phone itself has a 5.36-inch retina display made by Sharp that is protected by Gorilla Glass 3. The MX4 Ubuntu Edition has a 20.7-megapixel main camera with dual LED flash and a 2-megapixel front camera. The device has 16 GB of storage and will be available in silver or gold. The Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition will only be sold in Europe, and requires an invitation. The price is approximately $335. Canonical does not yet plan to make the phone available to U.S. buyers.
