Meizu has been all over the news lately. The company is getting ready to launch their new smartphone soon, most probably the Meizu MX6, and they've also been sued by Qualcomm for patent infringement. The lawsuit is currently ongoing, but it seems like Meizu infringed upon Qualcomm's 3G and 4G patents when they used MediaTek's SoCs. If you'd like to read more about this, click here. That being said, we're here to talk more about the company's upcoming smartphone, read on.
The Meizu MX6 will almost certainly going to be announced this month, we still don't know exactly when will that happen, but Meizu is planning to host a press conference in China in order to unveil this device. We've exclusively reported on the Ubuntu Edition of the Meizu MX6 recently, and thanks to those promo images, we basically know what will the phone look like. Having that in mind, Meizu had introduced their Meizu PRO 6 flagship back in April, and considering the display size and specs on that device, we do expect the Meizu PRO 7 to launch later this year as well. The Meizu PRO 6 is fueled by the Helio X25 64-bit deca-core processor by MediaTek, while its predecessor was fueled by the Exynos 7420 by Samsung. Meizu's exec had already confirmed that the company is working on an Exynos-powered flagship, which more or less confirms that the Meizu PRO 7 will arrive later this year, and be a true successor to the Meizu PRO 5 which arrived last September.
Now, we've seen various Meizu PRO 7 leaks already, though the phone was referred to as the Meizu PRO 6 Edge back then, mainly because of the curved display sides similar to those we've seen on Samsung's 'Edge' devices, and the Vivo XPlay 5. Now, if you look at the provided image above, you'll get to see the newly leaked real life image of an unknown Meizu-branded smartphone. According to the source, this is the upcoming Meizu PRO 7 handset, and its back is completely black, while its sides are made out of metal. The back side of the device seems to be made out of glass, or something similar to glass, though we can't confirm that considering this image is quite dark and it doesn't really let us see all the details. This device does sport the same 10-LED flash setup as we've seen on the Meizu PRO 6, at least judging by its looks. This handset is expected to ship with the Exynos 8890 on the inside, and we'll probably get both 4GB and 6GB RAM variants of the phone. AMOLED display is also expected here, and if Meizu intends to keep the PRO 5's size, then you can expect to see a 5.7-inch panel here.
