Meizu Pro 7 to use Exynos 8895 SoC? (rumors)


According to leaks, Meizu and Samsung had a joint technical meeting on May 12 in Beijing, that was deemed as “Tech Day” and wasn’t open to the public. As you can understand this posed a lot of questions regarding the reason for this event and rumors quickly began to appear, insisting that the two companies are in talks regarding the Exynos 8895 SoC and the possibility to use it in the upcoming Meizu Pro 7 flagship model!

Meizu Pro 7

There’s no doubt that Meizu is one of the top Chinese manufacturers but so far they haven’t managed to appear as a major competitor in the market due to the poor performance of their devices. This is mainly because the company relies only on Mediatek chipsets but this is going to change if rumors turn out to be true.

During the past a set of leaked documents that revealed Meizu’s roadmap hinted on a possible Meizu Pro 7 model, that would probably use an Exynos SoC, just like its predecessor (Pro 6 Plus) did.

What do you think? Could an Exynos 8895 powered Meizu Pro 7 be competitive enough?

    That will be great. But as other leaks said, Pro 7 will have MT x30…?

    I expect the mx7 to come with the Helio x30 SoC, and the pro 7 to have the Exynos 8895. That has been Meizu’s pattern for the last few years, seems unlikely to change.

      I agree with you. But I rather prefer to see MX7 having helio-x30 and Pro7 having exynos8895V and Pro7Plus having exynos8895M.

      MX series is 5.5 inch, Pro series is 5.2 inch, Pro Plus series is 5.7 inch.

      Pro series used to come with exynos’ flagship but Meizu Pro 6 was exceptional. In “6th gen” we needed to go with “Plus” model if we want exynos model.

        Agreed that would be preferable. Unfortunately, I would be surprised if that was the case. Meizu will likely retain the pattern from the 6 series.

    If it gets the Exynos 8895, I’ll definitely check it out.

    That will be great. But as other leaks said, Pro 7 will still have MT x30…😞

    Meizu is said to be opting for the MTK x30 for the Pro 7, not the Exynos (Weibo).
    So…. dead on arrival.

    Anyway, Meizu is a dead company. So who cares?
