We haven’t heard anything official about the possible launch of a Meizu Pro 7 smartphone, but images of the handset have appeared online showing off some rather interesting hardware features. First up, we can spot looks very much like a Samsung-esque dual-edge display. The phone also appears to feature a dual rear camera configuration, with the secondary camera placed just below the primary, along with Meizu’s LED ring flash.
If the dual-edge display does make an appearance with the Pro 7, Meizu’s typically competitive price point would bring this display tech to a new group of consumers. That said, Meizu wouldn’t be the first Chinese OEM to make use of Samsung’s dual-edge display technology. Now that Samsung has increased the production capacity of its dual-edge panels, the company has been selling them to third party smartphone manufacturers in the region, such as Vivo.
The company’s regular use of Samsung components is again expected to apply to the processing package. The Meizu Pro 7 is rumored to arrive with an Exynos 8890 processor, although MediaTek’s recent investment in the company means that we might see a Helio processor included instead.
We don’t have any official word on the Meizu Pro 7 yet, so we’ll treat this report with the due scepticism. Still, what do you think about the prospect of more, lower cost smartphones featuring dual-edge displays?
