Meizu Pro7 Will Be First Phone To Launch With Helio X30

by Habeeb Onawole 8

The Meizu Pro7 is set for a release soon. We have heard rumors of it launching on July 26 but Meizu hasn’t confirmed it yet. Apart from the secondary display the Pro7 will have, the second biggest feature is its Mediatek Helio X30 chip.


The Helio X30 has been a long time coming and it is said to make its debut in the Pro7. So between now and when Meizu launches its new flagship, there won’t be any other phone launching with the processor.

The Helio X30 is a 10nm chip that is supposed to take on the Snapdragon 835. When it was first unveiled last year, quite a number of people looked forward to seeing its real life performance.

The Helio X30 a.k.a MT6799 is a deca-core processor comprising of two Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.5GHz, four Cortex-A53s at 2.2GHz and another four A35s at 1.9GHz. Mediatek has switched to a PowerVR 7XTP-MT4 clocked at 800MHz for the GPU. The chip supports 4K displays, RAM of up to 8GB and UFS 2.1 storage. It will have support for 3x carrier aggregation, LTE cat-10 and Imagiq 2.0.

When the Meizu Pro7 finally launches expect lots of comparisons between it and the Snapdragon 835 phones already released. The flagship will have a 5.2” 1080p display, dual rear cameras, and Meizu’s signature mCharge.

    I can’t wait to see this chip in cheaper devices.
    I will definitely buy it if there is a helio x30 powered device which costs less than $250

      lol good luck waiting 4~5 years for a phone with this high-end chip for that price you mentioned!

      10nm technology is expensive and won’t come cheap.

        You can find phones with SD820/821 for $200-$300

        • z4ck

          You can find even cheaper.
          x821 and ZukZ2 was arround $170

        If you compare the price of last year’s flagships and this year’s flagship we can imagine how much costs s835 and it’s not that expensive. And if you take into consideration that MediaTek always provide their SoC in a much lower price than Qualcomm, It is not surprising to see a X30 powered device in a price I mentioned.

        Another thing, MeizuPro6 started at $370 and the cheapest HelioX25 powered device was arround $160. And this time, MeizuPro7 is said to start at $500. Can’t you calculate how much can be the chepest one with X30 ??

    It is a shame that Yun OS took over Meizu , it has good phones , but since that OS came to Meizu, its always a deal breaker

    • Flipp0

      Why? It behaves more or less exactly like the Androidversion of Flyme.

  • AtereJr

    I doubt the Helio X30 is a match for the old SD820 much less the 830
