Meizu will release a follow-up to the Pro 6, and it could be available before the end of July. A series of leaked images and renders have given insight into the upcoming phone’s design, as well as some of the specs that we can expect. Like the Pro 6, we’re seeing two form factors for this phone: a standard version and a larger Plus variant.
Here’s everything we know about the Meizu Pro 7.
The most prominent feature of the Pro 7’s design looks to be the secondary display slotted just underneath the rear camera. This screen is believed to show information including the time, date, and notifications. The panel was first seen in a series of illustrations, posted on Chinese social media website Weibo, that were based on previous leaks and showed a cutout for a display on the back under the camera.
Otherwise, the phone appears much more conventional along the front. Our best look yet at the Pro 7’s design comes from a series of renders obtained by Compareaja and OnLeaks. From these images, we see a device resembling the recently released OnePlus 5, with chunky bezels at the top and bottom, considerably narrower ones on the side, and an oval fingerprint sensor and home button.
Interestingly enough, other leaks have shown a radical, borderless edge-to-edge design similar to the Xiaomi Mi Mix, which made headlines for having a huge display.
It also seems like the phone will be extremely thin — it will come in at only 6.5mm thick, according to the leaks. The larger Pro 7 looks to boast a relatively large 5.62-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2,160 x 1,080 and an 18:9 aspect ratio, similar to the LG G6 or Samsung Galaxy S8. The report on the screen comes courtesy of a series of Weibo posts.
