Meizu PRO 7 to be unveiled July 26th
Meizu's invitation for the PRO 7 unveiling event included this picture revealing the handset's secondary display
A tweet disseminated by Meizu reveals that the manufacturer's PRO 7 flagship phone will be officially unveiled on July 26th. Photos that come from Meizu reveal the secondary display that takes up a small portion of the back screen. Images of the secondary display show that it is placed just under the rear-facing dual-camera setup. This is all found under the left corner of the phone's back cover. Previous leaks show the secondary display to be a full-color LCD screen.
Speculation has the Meizu PRO 7 powered by the MediaTek Helio X30 SoC carrying a deca-core CPU. The chip brings a 35% improvement in performance while consuming half as much energy as the Helio X20 chip. The PowerVR 7XTP-MT4 GPU is also included.
As we told you on Sunday, the buzz around the water cooler has the phone priced at the equivalent of $480 USD. We might also see a Meizu PRO 7 Plus version priced at the equivalent of $555. The premium model could be powered by the Exynos 8895 chipset. This is the same SoC that powers Sammy's flagship Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in the majority of the markets where they are sold. It should also be found driving the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 in the same markets.
Circle July 26th on your calendar. That is the date when Meizu officially takes the wraps off of the PRO 7 (and PRO 7 Plus?). And on that date, we should find out everything pertaining to the specs, pricing and availability of the phone(s).
