After a long period of leaks and teasers, the Meizu Pro 7 and Meizu Pro 7 Plus are finally official. Both devices have duality in common, as they sport dual AMOLED screens and also dual Sony cameras. These devices are also a premiere, the one of the MediaTek Helio X30 chipset, at least for the bigger unit.
Interestingly, we don’t get an E-Ink screen at the back of the Meizu Pro 7, but rather an AMOLED panel. The one at the back can be used to check out notifications and also control the music player and take selfies with the main camera. Speaking of which, both handsets sport dual cameras that rely on two Sony IMX 386 sensors with 12 MP resolution, one of them shooting in color and the other in black and white.
They both offer F/2.0 apertures, which is not very impressive, but Meizu promised solid low light performance nevertheless. Selfies are taken using a 16 MP front camera. Of course there are differences between the regular Meizu Pro 7 and the Meizu Pro 7 Plus. One example is the fact that the Meizu Pro 7 Plus uses a MediaTek Helio X30 processor, a 10 nm chipset with a 10 core setup.
The Pro 7 standard unit uses a Helio P25 chipset, it seems. 4 GB of RAM are included here, while the Plus unit has 6 GB of RAM. Storage is 64 GB for the Pro 7 and 128 GB for the Plus. Another difference between the two is the predictable one of the diagonal, as the Pro 7 Plus has a 5.7 inch Super AMOLED screen with Quad HD resolution and the smaller one brings a 5.2 inch Super AMOLED with Full HD resolution.
They both share a 2 inch AMOLED back panel as the second screen. And of course the battery is different, with a 3000 mAh unit making tick the regular unit and a 3500 mAh battery powering up the Plus handset. For those of you wondering, both phones come with 3.5 mm audio jacks and dedicated audio processing chips.
Meizu’s Pro 7 duo runs on Android 7.0 Nougat with Flyme OS on top and the prices are $430 for the Pro 7 and $530 for the Pro 7 Plus. Availability starts on August 5th, at least in China.
