MEIZU has refreshed its flagship smartphone line up with the launch of the Meizu Pro 7 and Pro 7 Plus at an event in China today. The brand’s new flagships flaunt a premium metal design. The biggest highlight of the phones is that they are equipped with a secondary Super AMOLED display at the rear, which shows notifications for calls, messages and more, apart from allowing you see yourself on the screen while capturing images from the rear.
The secondary display can also be configured to showcase several live wallpapers. Following the dual camera boom on the smartphones, MEIZU has fitted the new flagships with two 12-megapixel Sony IMX386 cameras at the rear, one RGB and one monochrome. For selfies, both the handsets get 16-megapixel shooters. They are also equipped with independent audio processing chips.
Individually, the MEIZU Pro 7 flaunts a 5.5-inch full HD Super AMOLED display from Samsung. The phone comes in two processor configurations – one with an Helio P25 and the other with an Helio X30, both mated to 4GB of RAM. The Helio P25 variant comes with 64GB of storage, while the Helio X30 model gets 128GB of memory. The device boots the latest Flyme 6 OS that’s based on Android Nougat, and gets a fingerprint sensor in the home button. It features a 3,000mAh battery that supports mCharge 3.0 fast charging technology.
The MEIZU Pro 7 Plus, on the other hand, is loaded with a bigger 5.7-inch quad-HD Super AMOLED display. It gets a massive 3,500mAh battery that supports 5V/5A mCharge 4.0 fast charging technology, which is faster than OnePlus’ Dash Charge technology which is rated at 5V/4A. It is powered by a 10nm 2.6GHz deca-core MediaTek X30 processor, mated to 6GB of RAM. The storage options include 64GB and 128GB.
As for the pricing, the Helio P25 SoC variant of the MEIZU Pro 7 costs RMB 2,880 (~Rs 27,400), while the Helio X30 model will cost RMB 3,380 (~Rs 32,200). The 64GB Pro 7 Plus costs RMB 3,580 (~Rs 34,100), while the 128GB model will set you back by RMB 4,080 (~Rs 38,800). They come in black, silver, gold and red hues.
