Beijing: Chinese smartphone manufacturer Meizu`s upcoming `E` line of smartphones will be powered by Alibaba`s YunOS and will be able to control the Roewe RX5 smart car jointly announced by Alibaba with SAIC Motor Corp.
Meizu had scheduled a press event for August 10 and going by the company`s teasers, they will announce the `E` line of smartphones during the show, Chinese social network Weibo reported on Tuesday.
