Meizu shows M8's Safari-like web browser

Meizu M8 Web Browser

The web browser at the heart of Meizu's still-unreleased M8 smartphone will borrow more than a few elements from its closest cousin at Apple, according to a post made by company chief J. Wong shows the Windows Mobile phone running a custom browser that shares a similar design to Safari on the iPhone, including its minimal address bar and buttons that mimic the navigation and new page features of Apple's interface.

The browser appears to be more capable than the current version of Internet Explorer and renders at least some HTML pages properly without missing or distorting content.

Meizu hasn't provided any extra information as to when the M8 (also known as the MiniOne) will be released, and with this announcement rebuffs suggestions that the China-based company will ship the phone in August. Wong's only additional information is word of ambient light and proximity sensors on the device.

    Just in time to be sued

    I can't wait until they finally release this in any country where the iPhone is or will be at that time (70 ). Apple is going to sue this company into bankruptcy so quick for so many aspects of this phone.
