Meizu Pro 7 with secondary screen to be announced July 26
It’s official: we finally know when the Meizu Pro 7 will be revealed. The company has announced on Chinese social site Weibo that it will hold a press conference in China on July 26 to introduce the new handset.
The company didn’t mention if the Meizu Pro 7 Plus will also make
its debut at the event, but we expect that the company will show off
both devices at the same time. Meizu didn’t share any details about the
upcoming smartphones, we still don’t know much about them, however, an
image from the Meizu event invitation (seen above) confirms the
inclusion of a secondary display (as had been previously speculated).
This display will seemingly allow you to play games and might
also be used as a viewfinder for selfies. While those possibilities
don’t sound that interesting, it will probably offer a few more
functions, so we’ll reserve our judgment until we actually see and test
out the device.
The Meizu Pro 7 and Pro 7 Plus are expected to be quite similar
in terms of design and specs. The Meizu Pro 7 is rumored to come with a
5.2-inch 1080p display and the MediaTek Helio X30 chipset, while its
bigger brother might feature a 5.5-inch screen. Some rumors also suggest
that the Plus version will be powered by the Exynos 8895 chipset, which
is found in some versions of the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.
Other things worth mentioning are a dual-camera setup on
the back with 12 MP sensors, a fingerprint scanner located on the front,
a headphone jack, and a USB Type-C port. Again, nothing has been
confirmed yet, so we’ll have to wait until next week to see if the
rumors are true or false.
