Meizu has officially unveiled its flagship Android smartphones for 2017. Dubbed Meizu Pro 7 and Pro 7 Plus, the newbies come with Dual-cameras, Dual-displays, and Helio X30 chipset, MediaTek’s flagship deca-core chipset.

The Meizu Pro 7 and Pro 7 Plus share the identical design language featuring the same full metal unibody construction. Both the smartphones carry dual-cameras on the rear panel. The Dual-cameras used on the back is 12MP Sony IMX386 sensors, where one functions as Monochrome (b/w) sensor and another as RGB (color) sensor.

On the front, Meizu Pro 7 and Pro 7 Plus sports 5.2-inch and 5.7-inch super AMOLED display respectively sourced from Samsung. The display on the Meizu Pro 7 offers Full HD resolution whereas its elder sibling aka Meizu Pro 7 Plus offers QHD resolution. Since the smartphones bear dual-displays, there is another 1.9-inch display on the rear panel beneath the camera setup. The dual-display was conceptualized and introduced on Yota Phones, which had E-ink display on the rear panel. Though the concept and innovation were impressive, it failed to garner customers. Unlike the Yota phones, Meizu has used super AMOLED displays on Pro 7 and Pro 7 Plus. The secondary display can be used to view notifications, control music player, gain weather information and to take selfies. Because of the presence of dual-camera setup on the back, the secondary display will assist in taking selfies with Bokeh effects.

Upfront there is a 16MP camera for taking selfies, which features a wide aperture of f/2.0. Meizu Pro 7 and Pro 7 Plus are powered by Helio X30 chipset, which is a flagship chipset from MediaTek. The chipset has a deca-core processor that runs at a clock speed of 2.6GHz. However, the cheaper variant of Meizu Pro 7 is provided with dated MediaTek Helio P25 chipset. To keep the device nourished, Pro 7 has 3000mAh battery, which includes mCharge 3.0 for quick charging and reducing the company of the phone with the wall-charger. The Pro 7 Plus embraces a slightly bigger powerhouse as compared to its sibling. Pro 7 Plus has 3500mAh battery with mCharge 4.0 for quick charging. mCharge 4.0 uses 5V 5A (25W) charging process, which ensures 0-67% battery just in 30 minutes. With this charging process, mCharge 4.0  is considered faster than the OnePlus’s Dash Charge.

On the software side, both the smartphones boot on Android Nougat with Flyme OS 6 on the top. The smartphones also include dedicated audio chips. Both the smartphones will go on sale from August 5. As for the pricing, the base variant (64GB Storage/Helio P25) of the Pro 7 costs a price of 2,880 Yuan ($425), whereas its higher end counterpart (128GB storage/Helio X30) costs 3380 Yuan ($500). On the other hand, Meizu Pro 7 Plus has the price of 3580 Yuan ($530) and 4080 ($605) for the base and high-end variant respectively.
