Meizu has released a ton of smartphones so far that are powered by MediaTek’s chipsets. Additionally, the company announced the Pro 6 Plus at the end of last year that uses a Samsung Exynos chipset, while the recently revealed M6 Note features a Snapdragon SoC. This got people wondering about Meizu’s direction in the future, with some thinking that the company might mostly use Qualcomm’s chipsets from now on.

To avoid confusion, Meizu has now shared more details about its hardware plans, saying that it will work closely with all three chip manufacturers.

We will use all three major SoC OEMs for our future devices; Samsung Exynos, Qualcomm Snapdragon, and MediaTek. Each one offers a unique advantage, and will complement our products differently. — Ard Boudeling, Head of Global Marketing at Meizu

So, there you have it. Meizu isn’t loyal to just one manufacturer and plans on using chipsets made by all three major players in the market. This does have a number of advantages, with one of them being minimizing the chances of experiencing any supply shortages.
