Meizu Pro 7 Flagship Rumored to Feature Huawei’s Kirin 960 Chip

by Jed John 6

Just recently, renders of a bezel-less phone said to be in the making by Meizu were leaked. We then got wind of the rumor that the bezel-less phone might be the Meizu Pro 7 which had been making the rounds in the news for a while now.

The latest rumor on this is that the expected Meizu Pro 7 might use an Hisilicon Kirin 960 chip, Huawei’s latest. The Kirin 960 has only been used on the Huawei Mate 9, Mate 9 Porsche Design and Mate 9 Pro, all part of the Mate 9 series.


Now the Meizu Pro 7 is expected as Meizu’s next generation flagship and it wouldn’t be a bad idea if the device is powered by the Kirin 960. Meizu doesn’t use Qualcomm chips nor Samsung’s on its devices but rather had consistently stuck with MediaTek chipset. A shift to Kirin would infuse a breath of freshness into the flagship device.

Huawei did reveal that it is ready to sell the Kirin 960 chips to other phone manufacturers. However, it is unlikely that such a scenario would be possible presently. According to the vice-President of Huawei phones, Huawei is very busy at present selling its latest products that there might not be time to do other work aside selling.

    Good thinking by Meizu!

    Would definitely be an eye-opener. Never thought Huawei would want to see their very latest SOC in a direct rival’s phone, never mind they’ve only just released the Mate 9 series. It would solve Meizu’s quandary, though: a “premium” chip (MTK lacking that perception) with full network support in China (Exynos doesn’t have) and not Qualcomm (that lawsuit thing).

      Kirin = Premium? Are you joking?
