Spy Photograph of Meizu Pro 7 Surface Online, Shows Secondary Display

by Habeeb Onawole 6

Since the beginning of the year, Meizu has released multiple phones for the entry level and mid-range category but not a single flagship device. That is about to change with the Pro 7 that has been making rounds lately. Although it will arrive late to the party, coming after Xiaomi’s Mi 6, Nubia’s Z17, and even the OnePlus 5, it has managed to stir up a bit of excitement thanks to its rumored secondary display.

Meizu Pro 7 Real Image

There are a bunch of phones with secondary displays. There is the YotaPhone 1 and 2, the LG V10 and V20, and the HTC U Ultra. However, Meizu’s design stands out. Unlike the HTC U Ultra and LG V series that have their secondary display right above the main one, Meizu has its own at the back.

The second display is said to be an e-ink variety like that of the YotaPhone but only occupies a small area. It will show notifications, weather information and other important info.

We have seen renders of the phone and leaked images of the chassis. Today, we get to see a real life image leaked online by Weibo user @Fotoball. The image shows only the back, giving us a glimpse at the secondary display in action. We can also see the dual rear cameras and the LED flash positioned right above it.

The Meizu Pro 7 is expected to launch in July and will be powered by MediaTek’s Helio X30. There is mention of a Plus variant that will have a larger display and swap the X30 for Samsung’s Exynos 8890.

      Actually seems to be a prototype. Also remember the YotaPhone. That was not photoshopped.

        Don’t get me wrong, from the pictures of the empty chassis, I assume it must look something like that, but if you look at the black part of the camera housing, there is a sharp edge, but the antenna lines and even the dual flash look slightly blurred. How can that be?
        So, I think this is still just a render not the real thing!

          Let’s wait until a real unit appears on video… Also, remember thay there are ways to amaze the customers…. YotaPhone was one of them.

    Congratulations meizu..this is good, creative.
    Thanks for not following the trend at least not looks like ip7+ wannabe.
    X30 is enough for most of daily use and if the price is good, no doubt this will selling hot.
    Why meizu not sell in Malaysia?
    Follow vivo and oppo, they sell like hot cakes in Malaysia and most of then doesnt really matter what processor inside as long as minimum 4gb ram.
