After being leaked and teased for quite some time, Meizu Pro 7 finally goes official today. True to what we have heard before, one of the phone’s main highlight is the 1.9-inch secondary Super AMOLED display that is located right underneath its rear camera.
Designed to show notification, weather, and other information, the secondary display apparently can be activated when users flip the smartphone around. Aside from that, the display can also be set to show user’s favorite pictures and animation.
The display can also act as a viewfinder to help users snap selfies. For music lovers, they can also use the screen to show their music which is apt enough since Pro 7 is equipped with Cirrus Logic CS43130 DAC – headphone amplifier combo that helps boost the quality of audio output for the phone.
As for the phone’s front display, Meizu has equipped Pro 7 with a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED full HD display that the company has sourced from Samsung. Despite featuring two displays, Meizu still managed to keep the thickness of Pro 7 which also has an aluminum unibody chassis to around 7.3mm.
In terms of photography, the Pro 7 relies on two 12-megapixels Sony IMX386 sensors alongside f/2.0 lens for both of them. Interestingly, one of the sensors is actually tuned for color photos while the other one is tasked to capture images in black and white. Meanwhile, there’s also a 16-megapixels selfie camera with f/2.0 lens on the phone’s front area.
To deliver the firepower needed to run Pro 7, Meizu has choose to pair the smartphone with MediaTek Helio X30 alongside 4GB of LPDDR4X ,128GB UFS 2.1 storage, and 3,000mAh battery. The company will also be releasing another version of Pro 7 that is powered by MediaTek Helio P25 and 64GB eMMC 5.1 storage.
In addition to that, Meizu has also unveiled Pro 7 Plus which carries a slightly larger 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED main display that was also sourced from Samsung. This particular variant also comes with more RAM at 6GB as well as a bigger 3,500mAh battery but still running on Helio X30.
Price-wise, the P25-powered 64GB Pro 7 can be obtained CNY 2,880 (about RM 1,827) while the X30-based 128GB Pro 7 goes for CNY 3,380 (about RM 2,144). The Pro 7 Plus on another hand is listed at CNY 3,580 (about RM 2,271) and CNY 4,080 (about RM 2,588) for 64GB and 128GB model respectively.
While all the models above will be released in China on 5 August, their release date and pricing for other markets including Malaysia is not known at the moment. We’ll keep you posted once we receive relevant updates from Meizu.
