Meizu the Chinese mobile phone manufacturer today launched the Meizu Pro 7 and the Pro 7 Plus. While there have been many players who introduced a dual screen setup in their smartphones like the LG V20, YotaPhone and the Samsung Galaxy Folder nothing has ever looked as good as the two smartphones Meizu launched today. Both the Meizu Pro 7 and the Pro 7 Plus look quite similar in looks. However, the internals are totally different. The Pro 7 is a mid-range smartphone and the Pro 7 Plus is a flagship level device. This does not come as a surprise as Meizu did a similar thing last year with its Pro 6 and the Pro 6 Plus.
The Meizu Pro 7 Plus features the MediaTek’s flagship Helio X30 chipset coupled with 6GB of RAM and an option of 64GB/128GB Internal Storage. The Pro 7 Plus is backed by a 3,500mAh battery. Meanwhile, the smaller Pro 7 features MediaTek’s Helio P25 SoC combined with 4GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of Internal Storage. It is backed up by a 3,000mAh battery. Also to be noted both the devices come supporting Meizu’s mCharge 4.0 fast charge technology which reduces heating and increases charging speed.
Both the devices feature a secondary display on the back panel. It is an AMOLED panel which the company claims can be used for multiple things. You will be able to get your notifications there, control your music, use it as a viewfinder to take selfies from the back camera, and much more.
As for the camera, both the devices will come sporting a dual camera setup on the back with a resolution of 12-megapixel each. One camera would be a monochrome sensor and the other one will have a coloured one. On the front, you will get a 16-megapixel sensor for taking selfies. The Meizu Pro 7 will come sporting a 5.2-inch Full HD display and the Pro 7 Plus will sport a 5.7-inch Quad HD display.
Both the devices run on the company’s own Flyme 6 custom skin installed over Google’s Android 7.0 Nougat operating system. Interestingly Meizu has installed a special chip from Sony to give the best music experience to the users.
The company will make both the devices available on August 5. The Pro 7 will be priced at $430 and the Pro 7 Plus will cost you $530. Also to be noted, Meizu does not sell its smartphones in a lot of the countries, which means if you are not in the 17 officially supported countries then it might be difficult for you to get your hands on one.
