Meizu launched M3E on a couple of days ago. It’s a mid-range affordable phone that is pretty much like any other Meizu handset. The company has lately introduced a number of devices this year including their flagship device – Meizu PRO 6 back in April. Following the launch, tons of rumors emerged that the company is planning to release yet another flagship device.
The device is supposed to be powered by Samsung’s Exynos 8890 64-bit octa-core SoC and will sport curved display on both sides, similar to the Galaxy Note 7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. The company executives had too hinted something of the sort was coming out and now an Exynos 8890-powered device is listed on AnTuTu that seems to more or less confirm the rumors.
Meizu that surfaced on AnTuTu will likely be called Meizu PRO 7 or at least something similar. According to AnTuTu, the handset features a QHD (2560 x 1440) display. If this truly is Meizu’s next flagship then this device will be the first one from the company with such panel. The listing further reveals that the phone will house 4GB of RAM (a 6GB RAM variant is a possibility) and 32GB of internal storage. There is a 12-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front shooter.
According to previous rumors, the handset will have a metal body. The Meizu PRO 7 will have the mBack multifunctional physical home key just below the display, and that key will double as a fingerprint scanner. And it’s likely that the device will come with the company’s mCharge fast charging solution as well.
Speaking of the current flagship Meizu PRO 6 features a 5.20-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 1920 pixels at a PPI of 423 pixels per inch. It’s is powered by MediaTek Helio X25 processor and runs on Android. The device comes packed with 16-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front shooter for selfies.Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, 4G and sensors on the phone include Proximity sensor, Ambient light sensor, Accelerometer, and Gyroscope. A 2560mAh non-removable battery completes the package.
