Secondary displays have had their fair share of luck as of late. This time, it’s Meizu trying their luck in this fragile colony of smartphones society. A new render video hints the Meizu Pro 7 and Pro 7 Plus with a new kind of a secondary display.
Unlike LG’s V10 and V20 which have a secondary display on the top, the Meizu Pro 7 lineup will supposedly have a secondary display at the back, just below the camera setup.
The leaked renders were made public on the internet by OnLeaks which involve a CAD render of this new secondary display.
According to the report by Onleaks and CompareRaja.in, the rear display will be using an E-ink technology (Just like the YotaPhone lineup) which contradicts the earlier speculated LCD Display.
Meanwhile, GizmoChina happened to get its hands on photos of the Meizu Pro 7 which show a person play a Pacman-like Easter game in it.
Meizu Pro 7 and Pro 7 Plus Specifications
Nothing concrete can be said about the specifications of these devices as of now. However, the CAD renders suggest that both the Pro 7 and Pro 7 Plus will sport a USB Type-C slot, a dual rear camera setup (12MP + 12MP, IMX386, and IMX286), front facing home button which might double as a fingerprint scanner as well. The front facing home button might have gestures features to use the rear placed secondary display but this is not confirmed yet.
While the Meizu Pro 7 is supposedly going to sport a 5.2-inch, 1080p display, the bigger, beefier Pro 7 Plus might have a screen size more than 5.5-inch.
Both the devices are expected to house a MediaTek Helio X30 chipset.
Meizu Pro 7 and Pro 7 Plus Price
The expected price for the Pro 7 is tipped to be somewhere around CNY 2,799 ($412) and somewhere between CNY 3,299 ($485) and CNY 3,799 ($559) for the various versions of the Pro 7 Plus.
There is no denying the fact that Meizu is trying to bring something revolutionary to the smartphones market and it’s commendable. At least they are trying to do things out of the box which has always been the key success factor for Android devices. The problem is, what purpose can a rear display placed like this solve? Whether the secondary display can add to some actual productivity or not, only time can tell. One thing is for sure, taking rear selfies on a smartphone can now really become a thing thanks to the Meizu Pro 7 lineup.
