The Meizu PRO 7 is one of the most leaked Chinese smartphones of this year. This was supposed to be Meizu's Exynos 8890-powered flagship with a curved display, and it was originally expected to land in September, but that did not happen. The company's VP said a while back that the Meizu PRO 7 will not launch until 2017, which surprised quite a few of people. The company had released the Meizu PRO 6s instead of the Meizu PRO 7, but the Meizu PRO 7 did not stop leaking, quite on the contrary, we've seen quite a few leaks of this device lately.

Having that in mind, a new Meizu PRO 7 leak just popped up, and it seems quite realistic this time around. If you take a look at the gallery down below, you'll spot three images, the first and second image are showing the alleged Meizu PRO 7 from both front and back, while the third one is actually a real life image which goes hand-in-hand with the first two renders, and is showing the back side of the device. As you can see, this phone has a curved display on the sides, similar to the Galaxy S7 Edge, Vivo Xplay 5, Vivo Xplay 6, Elephone S7… and a couple of other devices that had been released thus far. There's one thing you'll notice here that does not seem that probable though, this smartphone does not come with a physical home button below the display, and all of Meizu's phones in the last couple of years have featured the company's trademarked mBack multifunctional home button, so that definitely seems odd. All you can see here is the circular capacitive key which Meizu used to utilize back in the day, the Meizu MX4 is quite probably the last Meizu-branded smartphone which shipped without a hardware button below the display, and that phone launched back in September 2014.

The alleged Meizu PRO 7 sketches leaked quite recently, though they show off a completely different phone to the one you can see here, so it's up to you to decide which leak you want to believe. In any case, this will be Meizu's new flagship smartphone when it launches, and if Meizu's VP is to be believed, the company won't announce it this year.
