Qualcomm Powered Meizu MX7 To Cost As Much As $1500!


Meizu and Qualcomm is one of those ongoing love stories. Will they or won’t they finally get together? Well, the answer could be a big YES.

Meizu and Qualcomm’s relationship might finally come to fruition with the release of the Meizu MX7, a flagship handset that Meizu are currently working on and planning to launch sometime in the near future.

This long-awaited flagship has actually already received its first teaser with an image of a phone-shaped object under a red cloth with a price, and what a price! According to the teaser, the MX7 is priced at 9999 Yuan which at today’s exchange rate is a hefty $1500!

In all honesty, we don’t expect Meizu to release a handset with such a high price point, but we won’t be all that surprised if the MX7 does in fact go on sale with a slightly higher price than what we have seen in the past.

So what of the phone? and where does Qualcomm come into things? Well according to Chinese press the MX7 will be powered be a Snapdragon 660 chipset (all the more reason not to believe that high price), a mid-range chipset that will crop up in a number of new smartphones over the coming months.

Other details should include 4-6GB RAM, 128GB storage, Sonly IMX586 12 megapixel main camera, and Meizu’s latest version of their mCharge fast charge system.

The Meizu MX7 isn’t the only upcoming flagship handset. The OnePlus 5 is also coming soon, there are rumours of an Oppo Find 9 and we don’t need to remind you that the Xiaomi Mi6 is launching soon! Pretty exciting days for Chinese tech fans!

    IMX586 in 2017? Hehehe. Typo.
    That price means nothing. Site will adjust it later. No one will buy a Meizu at $850 (atleast not by today’s {meizu’s} standards) let alone $1500.

      Meizus standards? Have you ever held a meizu in your hand? There’s a reason why their flagship models are always compared to the Samsungs and iPhones. Read/watch the reviews before you make baseless comments. Regarding the price, nobody will pay $850 for a phone that isn’t advertised in our countries, simple. If we were spammed with all the adverts like Samsung and iPhone do, I guarantee you people would be lining up to purchase Meizus.

      You read too fast, that’s not Sony IMX586 but Sonly IMX586, which is completely different. Sonly IMX586 will be available in 2017, along with Qualconn SD935 in a $1500 Meizu device.

      joke appart, this news is total garbage.

    When will you learn not to believe the prices JD resellers put in advance? ZUK Edge had a similar price tag put to it before its release. I guess this is how they create a new lot in this terrible store

    1. There probably won’t be a Qualcomm powered MX7
    2. If there is it won’t cost anything close to $1500.

    These prices are set by sites before they know of a product, it is always adjusted once it releases. 9999 is a standard price used for a phone they know little about.

    I guess that the price is a placeholder and finally the version they will sell is global (more bands available)
