Here's our clearest look at the upcoming Meizu PRO 7 & PRO 7 Plus, thanks to the Chinese FCC
If you have been following PhoneArena as of late, you know pretty well what the Meizu PRO 7 and PRO 7 Plus look like. But just in case you didn't, or had some lingering doubts about this upcoming Chinese handset and its peculiar secondary display, let these clear, 100% blurry-cam free images of it and its Plus version take care of that.

Ahead of its July 26 announcement, the Meizu PRO 7 and its Plus-sized compatriot appeared on TENAA (China's telecommunications authority)'s website. The clear images give us the best look at the handsets yet, though they don't show anything that we haven't seen before.

Non-traditional as the full-color secondary display is, the smartphone's design appears dated, due to the large top and bottom bezels. Speaking of size, the Meizu PRO 7 will have a 5.2-inch screen, while the PRO 7 Plus will get a 5.7-inch display. There will be a difference in display resolution – the PRO 7 will get a 1080 x 1920 screen, and the PRO 7 Plus will get a 1440 x 2560 one.

Other rumored specifications include MediaTek processors (likely the Helio X30 64-bit, deca-core chipset), dual 12MP cameras on the back, and a 16MP front camera. As for the debated secondary display, it's able to mirror pretty much everything that's going on on the main display. It is also capable of playing simple games like Pac-Man, showing notifications, weather alerts, and other useful information.

Check out the images in the gallery below, and head to the links for more information about Meizu's upcoming flagship.

Ugliest phone I've seen in a while... especially in white and whatever gold that is.

I agree. The back panel in black first seemed to me as some taping on the phone. But realising it's a part of its body actually makes me wanna put a tape on it.

I at least have to give them credit for trying something new. I'm honestly a little tired of seeing the same old, same old slab phone. I remember when phones used to look different from each other and you had clamshells, sliders, phones that twisted out, dual-screens, etc. Now you're just gonna see a phone with a giant screen on the front and a backing that will likely house dual-cameras and the differentiation being where those two cameras are positioned. However, I do think Meizu should've just made an e-ink display that was backlit instead to save on battery. A lot of people want to check their notifications without wasting battery life, so the solution would most likely be a very low-powered screen source like an e-ink display.
