A rule of thumb for Chinese electronics makers is that if Xiaomi does it, then you should to, and since Xiaomi has already released a couple of its own smart routers, it’s easy to believe the rumor that Meizu is going to do the same. KJuma, a well-known leakster on Weibo, has posted a bunch of images of what appears to be patent applications for a new smart router from Meizu that sounds pretty similar to what Xiaomi has already released.
We have seen couple of smart routers from Xiaomi, including a 1TB version. Given that most manufacturers tend to follow Xiaomi, it won’t be surprising to see a router from Xiaomi’s closest rival, Meizu. And now, a known leakster from Weibo, KJuma has just released a few set of images which is reportedly of the patent application of the Meizu router. The Meizu router is supposed to feature a similar design to Xiaomi’s smart router. However, its more of a cuboid rather than cyclindrical. The sides are not as round as the Xiaomi router, but the company’s design may have been partially inspired from Xiaomi’s device. It looks like all of the buttons and the ports are at the lower region of the router. The other sides are most likely clean. Unfortunately, at this juncture, we have no other information about this Meizu router. But given that the company has applied for patents, we can expect to see more information in the coming days.
