Leaked Meizu PRO 7 source code points to MediaTek Helio X30 chip and two Sony cameras on back


Meizu PRO 7 leaks have been fairly prominent this year, which gives us little doubt that the phone is being primed for a launch sometime soon. The latest piece of info-in-advance comes from peeking into source code files related to the smartphone. It was discovered that the PRO 7 will be powered by the MediaTek Helio X30 processor, to the detriment of anyone expecting a Qualcomm chip to run the house.

Then again, Meizu and Big Q have poor relations, while Samsung is unable to sell Exynos chips to interested customers due to a clause. So we're betting on a MediaTek chip for the PRO 7, just like the PRO 6 was powered by the Helio X25.

Once again, the new Meizu flagship is suggested to be a dual-camera device. The leaked code references IMX386 and IMX286 image sensors by Sony, alongside a 16MP front cam driven by the Samsung S5K368 sensor. Another interesting feature, a Dual Display, gets mentioned in the leak. It could refer to a secondary "ticker" screen like that on LG's V-series phones, or an 'Always-on' type of thing. The PRO 7 will very likely have an AMOLED display, making the latter perfectly possible. The final assumption is implying a dual curved edge display, which the handset will probably have.

Overall, the Meizu PRO 7 doesn't sound like a technological grand slam (those MediaTek SoCs... they simply aren't Qualcomm and Samsung chips), but it could turn out to be among the better Chinese high-end phones this year. The company has honed its design chops and its Flyme OS user experience is becoming increasingly polished, so all that hardware isn't going into a stinker of a phone.
