The Meizu PRO 7 has been one of the most leaked and rumored devices in the last couple of months. This device was expected to see the light of day on September 13th, but the company’s VP, Li Nan, recently said that the phone will not arrive on September 13th, and that the company has no plans to host an event on said date at all. In addition to all that, he said that the Meizu PRO 7 will not launch until next year, and by doing that, Meizu’s VP had managed to disappoint quite a few people, and the reactions to his Weibo (Chinese social network) post were not exactly positive.
That being said, the Meizu PRO 6s has been rumored recently, and we assumed that the company might include the Exynos 8890 in that device, considering that the PRO 7 was rumored to ship with Samsung’s latest and greatest SoC, but considering that phone won’t arrive anytime soon… well, including the Exynos 8890 in the PRO 6s makes sense. It seems like our guess was spot on, at least if Chinese analyst is to be believed. According to a well-known China-based analyst, the PRO 6s might land instead of the PRO 7 which is slated for next year. The analyst also says that the Exynos 8890 is likely to fuel this smartphone, which is great news considering many people were convinced that Meizu is ditching Exynos SoCs altogether. Now, does this mean that the PRO 6s will sport a curved display on both sides? Is that the phone that has leaked a number of times thus far? Well, if it is, then it’s basically the PRO 7 with a different name, in which case consumers have nothing to be worried about, they’ll basically get the phone they were expecting, but under a different name.
Now, if this is, in fact, the rumored Meizu PRO 7, then you can expect the Meizu PRO 6s to not only ship with the Exynos 8890, but also sport 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The device is also said to come with a 5.7-inch QHD display, and a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera. The 5-megapixel shooter will probably be placed up front, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow will come pre-installed on this device, with the company’s Flyme UI on top of it.
