Meizu Pro 7 seen in live image and press render
Recently, an apparently Meizu-branded competitor to the Xiaomi Mi MIX was spotted in the wild, which the rumor mill touted as the Meizu Pro 7. More recently, though, schematic drawings have instead revealed that the upcoming handset will offer a more conventional aesthetic. Now, a new press render and supposed live image of the handset seem to back these claims up.
The new leaks don't arrive with any specs in tow, but the aforementioned sketches indicate a 12-megapixel main sensor, 8-megapixel selfie shooter, 3.5mm jack and USB Type-C connectivity. The lack of a visible rear fingerprint sensor would suggest that this feature will be embedded beneath the display on the front. The new images point to a dual curved-edge display, while the rear camera is central rather than in the top-left as seen in those aformentioned sketches.
As for when the Meizu Pro 7 might emerge, we don't yet know. Meizu has an event pencilled in for the last day of the month, though it's likely to spawn the M5 Note with 3 GB of RAM, a full-HD display and Android 6.0 among other treats. Officials of the company have already indicated that the Pro 7 won't be announced until next year, so we'll surely gather a more substantial idea of what's in store over the coming months.
There's no word on when the edge-to-edge Mi MIX-incarnate will rear its head, or even if it's legit. But after the sketches and these new images, it probably won't be called the Meizu Pro 7.
