Both Meizu Pro 7 series smartphones will use MediaTek chipsets3
While Meizu prepares for the July 26 announcement, let's take a look at some of the latest information about the Pro 7 series. Although previous reports claimed the Pro 7 Plus will utilize Samsung's powerful Exynos 8895 chip, a more recent report coming from Taiwan's TechNews says otherwise.
The soon to be unveiled Meizu Pro 7 Plus will be the first smartphone to pack MediaTek's top-of-the-line Helio X30 processor. The SoC (system-on-chip) is made using 10nm manufacturing process and accommodates 10 cores, as well as a PowerVR 7XT graphics processing unit.
On the other hand, the standard Meizu Pro 7 will be equipped with a MediaTek Helio P25 chipset, which is manufactured using TSMC's 16nm FinFET process.
As far as prices go, rumor has it that the Meizu Pro 7 will be priced to sell for around $480, whereas the Plus version will costs $555 outright. The price difference between the two flagships is consistent, and one of the reasons could be the addition of the high-end chipset in the Plus model.
