[TechLeaks] Meizu Pro 7 Live Image Leaks Point Towards a Secondary Color Display on the Back


The mobile market sees like a cutthroat competition from all quarters, making it difficult for OEMs to stand above the crowd. There’s only so much differentiation one can bring to a phone’s design, so these OEMs have to explore unconventional features and sometimes quirky gimmicks to get their phones noticed.

Meizu will reportedly be doing something similar with its next set of devices in the “Pro” lineup. The Meizu Pro 7 and the Meizu Pro 7 Plus will reportedly feature not only a dual rear camera setup, but also a secondary color display on the back of the device.



The small secondary display will be housed below the dual rear camera. At first, leaks pointed that this display could be an e-ink display similar to the Yotaphone, just a bit smaller. But new leaks of the device showcase color display functionality which would not be possible with an e-ink display.

One of the leaks pictures the secondary display displaying a full copy of the front display, while another shows the device running a Pac Man game on the back. Though rumors suggest that the display technology on the secondary display would be LCD rather than AMOLED, though we will have to wait on the official launch to state the same with complete confidence. An upgrade from e-ink to LCD would enhance the usefulness of the display, but this would presumably come at the cost of precious battery life.

As far as specifications are concerned, the Meizu Pro 7 will likely sport a 5.2″ FHD display while the Plus variant will go for 5.5″ or even higher. Leaks point to a MediaTek Helio X30 powering the brains of the devices. The rear cameras are rumored to be 12MP sensors, Sony IMX386 and Sony IMX286. The front camera will be a 16MP shooter.

Pricing on the base variant of the Meizu Pro 7 is expected around CNY 2,799 ($412) and is expected to go as high as CNY 3,299 ($486) for the topmost variants. On the other hand, the Meizu Pro 7 Plus is expected to range between CNY 3,299 ($486) to CNY 3,799 ($560).
