Curved screen Meizu Pro 7 coming 13th September


meizu pro 7

New details purporting to a Meizu Pro 7 release are revealed today, giving the new flagship a release date of 13th September.

If like us you have been following the Meizu Pro 7 rumours then you will be interested to hear the latest development. A new teaser shown by Chinese media today shows a purported launch date for a new “pro” device on the 13th September.

At this stage of things we don’t know if the image is genuine or not, but the odd choice of slogan “Pro than Pro” does sound very Meizu to us.

Specs for the Meizu Pro 7 are said to include a Samsung Exynos 8890 chipset, a curved 2K display similar to the Vivo Xplay 5, 5 mega-pixel front camera, 12 mega-pixel rear and 4GB RAM. There may also even be room on the rear of the Meizu Pro 7 for an additional rear camera too!

Everything we know about the Meizu Pro 7 so far is just rumour, but if the details which have been made public so far are correct it will be a phone to watch.

    I do hope this meizu Pro 7 pricing is not expensive.

    We do need competition from smaller players to prevent monopoly by the greedy big players.

      Will be priced similar to the Pro 5 and Pro 6, which is around 2499 to 2799 (roughly $375 to $420) yuan for the lowest priced model.

      It can’t be cheap if it’s “Pro than Pro” xD
      leaks report a $420 pricetag for 4GB RAM version, and $460 for 6GB RAM version but it’s not confirmed atm.

    That pic from Antutu looks so fake, I don’t belive it will be equipped with Exynos.

      Of course its fake, you can clearly see where the font is completely different because someone typed it in. Below is what an actual Antutu result looks like, notice the font difference. It’s laughable they would even post that result above in an article.

        You are right, but the font of GPU looks normal. Mali T-880 was used only in Exynos 8890, Helio X20 and Kirin 950. So I guess it was copied from other Mediatek device, which one I don’t know. Maybe it was made with two or more pics 😉

          Most likely X20 because other Meizu phones use that.

    “Pro than Pro” ?
    Why the hell can’t Meizu pay a few bucks for someone who can actually speak english ? Or is it a lousy photoshop job like the AnTuTu screenshot ?

      Meziu’s “english” firmware is usually an afterthought. The only market Meizu really cares about is China.

        That makes sense : they only use english sentences for the “cool” effect. Like thoses stupid t-shirts with messages in english we can see everywhere in China “Love is beautiful thing in the world” or “New York life of style”.

        BTW they gone international selling MX5 and other models in Europe. They should act accordingly and fuck**g pay a translator for their marketing needs IMHO. This “me sell you good phone” communication will deserve them.

    I’m not a big fan of curved screens. They add no real functional benefit and make phones harder to hold without accidentally touching and launching apps you don’t want to launch. It’s just a fashion gimmick in my opinion.

      I agree with you

      I think they are ugly as well.

      I own a galaxy s7 edge and in my opinion curved screens make the user experience more fun and most especially unique. Accidental touches can easily be alleviated by putting a case in it since it will give the edge a few millimeters lateral width. Not to mention cases nowadays are necessities be it curved or flat screen. You don’t want to scuff, scratch or dent your newly owned mint condition $700+ phone do you?

    Again with the false 8890 rumors. Meizu themselves have said numerous times it isn’t happening. Time to let it go and move on. We all would love it but its not happening.
