Meizu has today launched its new smartphone in the Indian market — the Meizu Pro 7. The phone was originally scheduled to launch in November last year but it was delayed because of logistics issues. The Meizu Pro 7 was originally introduced in China in July last year.
In its announcement, the company has just announced the launch of Meizu Pro 7 and not the Pro 7 Plus variant. Priced at Rs. 22,999 (approximately $354) in India, the smartphone will be available in only Black color, exclusively through Amazon India in limited stocks.
One of the highlights of the phone is that it features two displays — one on the front and another one on the back panel. On the front side, there’s a 5.2-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display with 1920 x 1080 pixels screen resolution and a 1.9-inch secondary Super AMOLED display at the back that support a screen resolution of 240 x 536 pixels.
Under the hood, the smartphone is powered by a 2.5GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio P25 processor along with Mali-T880 GPU and 4GB RAM. There’s a 64GB internal memory. There’s a microSD card slot for further expanding the storage capacity. It has a fingerprint sensor at the back for added security and comes with a Cirrus Logic CS43130 Smart PA amplifier.
On the camera front, the phone features a dual camera at the back, which consists of a 12-megapixel monochrome lens and a 12-megapixel RGB lens. It features a dual-tone LED Flash, f/2.0 aperture, 1.25um pixel size, Sony IMX386 sensors, and phase detection auto-focus (PDAF). On the front side, there’s a 16-megapixel snapper with f/2.0 aperture.
Connectivity options on the device include 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 ac (2.4/5 GHz), Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, and USB Type-C. The smartphone comes with Android 7.0 Nougat operating system out-of-the-box which is quite disappointing as most smartphones now come with Android Oreo pre-installed. The phone drives power from a 3,000mAh battery which comes with mCharge fast charging support.
