In addition to the Meizu 17, the company also released the flagship Meizu 17 Pro. Its configuration is basically the same as that of Meizu 17. But it has upgraded to the LPDDR5 memory, uses an entire ceramic body, and the camera has also been upgraded to 64MP full-scene AR professional imaging system.
The Meizu 17 Pro is consistent in 6.6-inch Samsung Super AMOLED screen, polar edge full-screen, Snapdragon 865, UFS 3.1 flash memory, 4500mAh battery, 30W super-fast charge, etc. The main enhancements are the fuselage design and imaging system.
The memory of the Meizu 17 Pro is upgraded to LPDDR5. Compared with the overall performance of LPDDR4X, it has been improved by 20%. The Meizu 17 Pro’s AnTuTu score is up to 600,000. Also, it has a 12GB capacity.
In terms of charging, in addition to 30W super-fast charging, the Meizu 17 Pro also supports Super wireless mCharge 27W wireless fast charging. The latter can charge 47% of the power in 30 minutes. It also supports nighttime smart charging and reverse charging. They can be used for Bluetooth headsets and watches.
However, the biggest change of the Meizu 17 Pro is the fuselage. Compared with the glass process of the Meizu 17, the whole system of Meizu 17 Pro uses an integrally formed ceramic back cover. It adopts the physical weather deposition process and has a refined texture.
The last major upgrade is the camera. The Meizu 17 Pro uses a 64MP full-scene AR professional imaging system. The main camera still uses the Sony IMX686 CMOS, but the sub-cameras are greatly upgraded. There are an 8MP telephoto, a 32MP super wide-angle / macro, and a Samsung 3D deep sensor (debut). It not only enriched the camera performance but also brought the AR function.
Specifically, the Meizu 17 Pro’s 32-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens is customized, with a 129° field of view and an equivalent 15mm focal length. The Sony IMX616 sensor supports 4-in-1 pixels technology. It has the highest pixel in the macro lens.
The 3D deep-sensing lens is the first Samsung S5K33D deep-sensing detector. It also uses the 3D depth algorithm of Obi Zhongguang and Arcsoft, bringing hardware-level portrait blurring, video blurring, and enhanced display AR. AR measures the size and can also be used as an AR night vision device. At the moment, Meizu is developing more AR gameplay features.
Finally, the Meizu 17 Pro 8 + 128GB is priced at 4299 yuan ($607), while the 12 + 256GB model costs 4699 yuan ($664). They will go on sale on May 11.
