Although there are no reports about the launch of the Chinese manufacturer Meizu’s Pro 7 smartphone, prospective images of the handset have leaked on various online sources.
But, there are chances of a release towards the end of this year. These leaks give away quite a few details of what possible specifications you can expect from the successor of the current Meizu Pro 6 device released last April. However, as no specs have been officially declared, the information provided below may be taken with a pinch of salt.
The Meizu Pro 7 appears to have metallic sides encapsulating a glass panel on the back and making it unbreakable. Following the trend adopted by Samsung for its Galaxy Note 7 and S7 Edge, the manufacturer is very likely to incorporate dual edges with a curved design for the Pro 7. Also, an insight into the screenshots does not show the possibility of a very big or bulky smartphone. Unofficial sources estimate the approximate weight of the device to be around 166g. There are also indications of a dedicated physical home button and fingerprint scanner being located at the bottom of the handset. There is a very good possibility of using two SIMs at a time although it is not clear if both of them are dedicated SIM card slots or one of them is hybrid.
There are rumors on Giz China that the screen once again draws its influence from Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and Note 7. The Meizu Pro 7 will encompass a curved display with a screen size of 5.5 inches. The IPS LCD screen is also said to bear the standard pixel resolution of 1920 x 1080. Details about the pixel density and screen protection using Corning Gorilla Glass are yet to be known. But a recently leaked AnTuTu report of a Meizu handset that could probably be the device we are talking about mentions about a 5.7-inch QHD display. This has also been mentioned in the online Android Headlines report.
Talking about the camera details, the pictures depict that the manufacturer opts for a dual rear camera setup with a Sony Exmor RS sensor, a 6P lens and an LED flash located below both the cameras. This dual camera setup is now becoming the trend among various Chinese smartphone manufacturers, although this concept is yet to make ripples among leading giants like Apple and Samsung. While one of these shooters could be a 12MP snapper, the other is speculated to be a 5MP shooter. The two cameras are shown to be placed one below the other and offer an overall resolution of 2560 x 1440 according to the AnTuTu benchmarking test report. This will help in enhancing the zoom quality and minimizing on the blur to a considerable extent, which in turn renders clearer outputs. You will also in almost all likelihood be able to alter the focus of a photograph after it has been captured. For selfie lovers and video calling functionality, the Pro 7 will offer an 8MP camera on the front.
Discussions have been going on for a long time even before the images started leaking about the possible hardware configuration under the hood. Gossips mention the possibility of including a ten core processor with an Exynos 8890 chipset from Samsung. Yet, given the facts that the manufacturer has recently signed up an agreement with MediaTek, the Meizu Pro 7 may come with a MediaTek MT6799T processor. As for RAM, there are once again mixed reports. Even as some of them say the handset makes use of 4GB RAM, others prefer to mention the inclusion of 6GB. Onboard storage is anticipated to be 32GB. If the Pro 7 follows the strategy of the company’s current flagship smartphone that is its immediate predecessor, then you need not hope for expanding the offered storage. This will thus mean that both the SIM card slots are dedicated slots.
Hearsays state that the Meizu smartphone will be installed with Android 6.0 Marshmallow that operates in conjunction with the company’s very own Flyme UI. Till date, there have been no major complaints about this user interface. By and large, it has proved to be smooth running on the manufacturer’s handsets that has it installed.
Going by unofficial reports, the Pro 7 will come with a 3,000 mAh Li-ion battery offering 16 hours of talk time and 320 hours of standby time. It will also support quick charging functionality and gear up your completely dead battery by 26% in just 10 minutes.
There are hints that an event will be held by the manufacturer in September when the Meizu Pro 7 will supposedly be unveiled.
