Chinese smartphone maker Meizu looks set to make its debut in the Indian smartphone market. The company has launched a Facebook page for India, and all but confirms that it will be launching the M1 Note in the country. The move comes after other Chinese brands like Xiaomi, OnePlus and Oppo launched their smartphones in India last year and have witnessed success. Xiaomi, for instance, became the fifth largest smartphone vendor in India in the last quarter of 2014.
