Meizu Pro 7 Purportedly Powered By Snapdragon 835 Hits GeekBench

by Jed John 9

It’s no longer news that Meizu finally took the wraps off the Pro 7 and Pro 7 Plus in a colourful ceremony last week. Just when we thought all about the two flagships have been unravelled, a new twist has appeared in the mix from benchmark platform Geekbench. Someone recently uploaded a benchmark result alleged to be that of the Meizu Pro 7 and you know what? The Pro 7 in question has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Systems-on-Chip (SoC) onboard.Meizu Pro 7 Profile Image

The Meizu Pro 7 and Pro 7 Plus were launched as the first models powered by MediaTek’s latest and first 10nm flagship Helio X30 chip, with some models packing an equally new Helio P25 processor. The Pro 7 Plus comes entirely with an Helio X30 processor while the Meizu Pro 7 had either an Helio X30 or Helio P25 chip onboard. But the Geekbench model has an SD 835 chip on board as well as 6GB of RAM. The model is listed with a single-core score of 1969 and a multi-core score of 6536 points which is almost similar to that of other Snapdragon 835 smartphones.Meizu Pro 7 geekbench

This piece of information will be of interest to the section of Meizu fans who seek for a Qualcomm-powered Meizu phone especially as that Qualcomm powered phone is likely turning out to be the “Lord of the Manor”, the company’s best model yet. But don’t get your hopes up too soon, this might just be a hoax put up by someone up to some mischief. Do look forward to seeing a Snapdragon-packing Meizu phone before the end of this year or at most next year, though.

    Yes yes yes ,but why dont use the 8 gbram?

  • Reggie

    Yes yes but no 8 gb ram?. Why?.

    • balcobomber25

      overkill. Not needed.

  • Tremaine Underwood

    Or an Exynos powered one at the end of the year, as usual.

  • Karoon

    I think this is fake, Meizu did want to release an SD phone this year, but they wanted to make a midranger, not a high-end one.

    • balcobomber25

      Meizu has never worked with Qualcomm, they have no reason to. Mediatek is a major investor in Meizu and Samsung has been there partner since day 1. The Pro 7 is offered in both midrange (P25) and high end (X30) versions.

    I’d exchange the SD835’s 30k extra antutu points for a cooler and more efficient X30 any day.

  • Michael Flatman

    Noo I wanted the X30 so bad, that’s why I have been searching so hard for a phone with that SoC

  • balcobomber25

    I wouldn’t get my hopes up for this one. There’s always a “mystery” device on Geekbench with a different processor than it should have. They almost never see the light of day, usually they are test devices the company used in the early days of planning the phone. Some dev took it home and he will be the only one that ever uses the 835 version.

    If Meizu releases another model it will be using a Exnyos processor not a Qualcomm. Meizu has been rumored to produce a Qualcomm model for about 5 years now.
