Mediatek Confirms The Processors In The Meizu Pro7 Models

by Habeeb Onawole 15

A few weeks ago, Mediatek confirmed that Meizu will launch the first Helio X30 powered phone. It is no secret that the phone is the Pro7. But since there will be two models, which of the Pro7 will be getting the Helio X30?

A post by Mediatek on Weibo has revealed the processor present in the Meizu Pro7 and Pro7 Plus. Early reports had said the Pro7 will get the Helio X30 while the bigger Pro7 Plus will be powered by Samsung’s Exynos SoC.

Mediatek Reveals Meizu Pro7 Processors

A rough translation of the post says “Equipped with Mediatek’s Helio P25 and Helio X30 processor, Meizu’s Smartphone will be officially released on July 26”.

Since the Pro7 and Pro7 Plus are the only Meizu smartphones launching on July 26, this means one of them gets the Helio P25 and the other gets the Helio X30. As it stands, the Pro7 will most likely be the one getting the P25 while the Plus model gets the Helio X30.

We know this will come as a shock to those of you looking forward to trying out the Helio X30. But based on latest development, you will have to shell out more money to get your hands on it.

The Meizu Pro7 and Pro7 Plus will launch with dual cameras and dual displays. Apart from the difference in screen sizes (front display only), they will also differ in terms of processor type, storage and RAM configuration.

    Didn’t you report there will be three models? Pro 7, Pro 7 Plus and a Pro 7 Lite without the secondary display on the back? I can’t seem to find the article anymore, but I hope the Lite will be the one with the Helio P25. And it should be reasonably priced!

    The P25 might be the processor of choice for Gionees flagship, the S10, but there are many more affordable phones with the P25.

    I am witing this on my Vernee Mars Pro sporting the P25 and it cost me less than 150€/170$!

      P25 is a respectable processor in my opinion

    • balcobomber25

      I haven’t seen any mention of a Pro 7 Lite.

      Gionee’s flagships usually retail for about the same price as a Meizu. The P25 is a great processor for most consumers and those who need more power can get the X30.

        It might not have been called explicitly Pro 7 Lite, but there was a mention of a Pro 7 version without the secondary display on the back. Would seem to me like this is the version with the P25.

        • balcobomber25

          I have been falling the Pro 7 news for awhile, I haven’t seen any mention of a non secondary display option on any other site, or from any of the top leakers.

          • mopsert

            Seems I have imagined that. Now we know for sure.
            But 426$ for the P25 version is way too much. Like I commented in the launch article, I paid that amount for my Pro 6 Plus. One month after its release.

          • balcobomber25

            I think there may have been earlier leaks that suggested that might be the case. With Meizu there are usualy hundreds of leaks in the weeks and months leading up to a launch, most of them are false.

            As for price the budget one is definitely over priced, but the Plus model could end up being a great deal especially if the camera and audio turn out to be as good as advertised. I do like that Meizu has done something different with the second display.

          • mopsert

            Well, I wouldn’t call any $500+ device a great deal.
            I am intrigued by the idea of the secondary display, but so far I don’t see a true benefit that is worth spending the extra cash for a Helio X30 device instead of a SD835 powered device like the Nubia Z17 6/64 e.g.

          • balcobomber25

            The processor is only one part of a phone but the Helio X30 has the potential to be just as good if not better than the SD835. Mediatek solved one of its biggest weaknesses by switching to a Power VR GPU for the X30. We have to wait and see it tested on an actual device.

          • mopsert

            Yes, I am anxious to see the X30 perform.

    And everyone forgot to Blue Charm…. Yeah, the sub brand of Meizu.

    And seems that that device from that brand is likely to get the P25.

  • hebelöö

    P25 –> MX7. I think so.

  • balcobomber25

    It’s not surprising, Meizu is one of Mediatek’s biggest customers and Mtek is an investor in Meizu.

    • MaxPower

      The P25 doesn’t make any sense to me.
      Hopefully they won’t come up with a third Meizu Super mega 7 with Exynos chip.

      • balcobomber25

        It makes sense for Meizu because they always do their own thing.
