Meizu Pro 7 and Pro 7 Plus Launched with Dual Displays and Dual Rear Cameras

Meizu have just launched what’s possibly the most unique smartphone to come out of China in the past years, they are the Meizu Pro 7 and Meizu Pro 7 Plus. These will be the company’s flagship phones for 2017, both sporting a dual display and dual camera setup.

The Meizu Pro 7 and Meizu Pro 7 Plus differentiate in three main factors: screen size, we indeed find a 5.2-inch FHD Super AMOLED display for the former and a 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED for the latter; equipped CPU, with the more efficient MediaTek Helio P25 on the smaller Pro 7 and the powerful MediaTek Helio X30 on the Plus. The Plus version will be also available with 6GB of LPDDR 4X RAM vs the 4GB on the cheaper variant.

Let’s now get to what they have in common. Both smartphones will feature a dual camera setup on the back consisting of a couple of 12MP shooters, with one of them being monochrome and the other capturing colors as well. Below the two cameras we find the killing feature of the Meizu Pro 7 and Meizu Pro 7 Plus, a secondary 1.9-inch Samsung-made Super AMOLED display with 240×536 pixels resolution.

On the secondary display you’ll be able to see and manage your notifications, control your music or use it as a viewfinder for selfies with the two rear cameras, creating spectacular photos with a shallow depth of field.

As far as autonomy is concerned, Meizu Pro 7 and Meizu Pro 7 Plus come with 3000mAh and 3500mAh batteries respectively, which is on the average side. But since they’ll be featuring Meizu’s latest mCharge 4.0 technology, you might be able to charge them really quickly while keeping temperatures low.

Lastly, there’s a bummer for those who were interested in the bigger 5.7-inch variant as it won’t support 4G LTE on band 20, instead available on the 5.2-inch Meizu Pro 7.

    Nice specs! Though a $430 ask for the Pro 7 (assuming the 64 GB variant) is a bit high.

    Is the storage expandable?

    • No, it’s not expandable!

    • Ashoaib

      This price is very high for a mediatek device. Xiaomi mi6 with SD835 is in 400$. I think pro 7 and 7 plus will be DOA.

  • inkflow

    1. Large bezels.
    2. 5.7″ screen for the Plus version is too small.

  • Muhammad Yasir

    $530 is too much …

    $450 would be super for the Plus variant and late 300s for the normal variant

    what about the lite version

  • Fabiano

    I think meizu stoped mx production. P25 is realy funny for pro series. In short, low spec high price and ugly gadget. Good luck Meizu

    • SnowyCat

      i wouid actually like to see how the x30 performs, tho i would have only gotten the smaller versiona nd i dont want the p25 🙁 wish they included the x30 in the smaller one as well

  • Partha Dutta

    One thing you have forgotten to write which is the most important, not only dual display and dual rear camera but also dual and simultaneous 4G in Helio X30 hitherto absent in all other chipset.

  • njren

    That Cirrus Logic chip is not a “Smart PA amplifier”; it’s an all-in-one audio hub with DAC + amp. I assume it’s a successor to the older Wolfson audio hubs that Cirrus got when they bought out Wolfson. Certainly much less flashy than the multi-DAC, multi-amp hifi setups Meizu has trumpeted in previous Pro phones.

  • Stiven

    Finally the agony of everyday leaks is over, with this price it’s a flop

  • Fedora

    LOL, Snapdragon 835 devices are cheaper, and plenty of SD 820 / 821 devices which are even cheaper while offering excellent features sets.

    $430 for a P25? (Lower-low tier SoC).

    Anyway, the antics of sinking ships is always amusing.
    Bye bye Meizu.

  • Leenor

    No Exynos / SnapDragon, no buy.
    Sorry Meizu, can’t spend 400+ dough on a MediaTek phone, never.
