The Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy Note 7 are, according to many people, amongst the best-designed smartphones out there at the moment. These two devices sport curved displays up front, and it seems like other companies are planning to release such phones as well. Vivo had already introduced the Vivo XPlay 5, a smartphone with such a display, the Elephone S7 is right around the corner, and it seemed like Meizu’s PRO 7 will also come knocking soon. Leaks have been pointing to a September 13th launch event, but it seems like that event won’t happen after all, read on.

Earlier today the Meizu PRO 6s leaked, and now the company’s VP has something to say. Meizu’s Vice President, Li Nan, denied that Meizu plans to host a press conference on September 13th. His post is in Chinese, and even though our Chinese is quite rusty, he obviously says that the conference will not take place on September 13th, and in addition to that, he said that the PRO 7 will launch next year, which is quite weird. We do believe that the translation is quite accurate, but in case you want to make sure, you can always take a look at the original post by following the source link down below. It seems odd Meizu is ready to wait for next year in order to release this smartphone, especially considering the fact that the Exynos 8890 won’t exactly be the current-gen SoC next year, as soon as Samsung introduced the Galaxy S8, the next-gen Exynos processor will come to play. So, it is possible that the company is not even planning to include the Exynos 8890 in the Meizu PRO 7. In any case, we’re waiting to get more info from the company.

For those of you who are not in the loop, rumors and leaks said that the Meizu PRO 7 will ship with a curved display, 4GB of RAM and Samsung’s Exynos 8890 64-bit octa-core processor on the inside. Now, do keep in mind that the PRO 6s might still launch this year, as it was spotted this morning, so maybe Meizu intends to include the Exynos 8890 in the Meizu PRO 6s, and also throw a curved display on it? That’s not all that likely, but who knows, we’ll have to wait and see what happens, though this certainly comes as a surprise.
