The Meizu PRO 6 and Meizu PRO 6s are Meizu’s most powerful smartphones of 2016. The former was introduced back in April, while the latter arrived quite recently. Both of these devices are fueled by the Helio X25 64-bit deca-core processor by MediaTek, and both are made out of metal, while they sport really powerful internals as well. They’re physically almost identical, though the PRO 6s comes with a more capable camera, and a larger battery on the inside. That being said, we thought Meizu has no plans of announcing new high-end devices this year, but that might not be the case.
Meizu’s VP did say a while back that the Meizu PRO 7 won’t land before 2017, though we did see several interesting rumors / leaks recently which suggested that the phone might land before the end of 2016. The bezel-less Meizu-branded device leaked a couple of times recently, and some rumors are suggesting that might be the Meizu PRO 7. Having that in mind, the device just leaked yet again, this time around we get to see some sketches which allegedly show off the Meizu PRO 7. Interestingly enough, these sketches do not show off a bezel-less phone, quite on the contrary, the device shown off here resembles Meizu’s already available smartphones, except for the fact it sports a dual camera setup on the back. If this info is to be believed, the phone will be 8mm thick, and it will sport a 3.5mm headphone jack at the very bottom of the phone. These images also reveal that we can expect an 8-megapixel camera to be available on the front side of the Meizu PRO 7, and the company’s mBack home button will be included here as well. The phone’s speakers will be placed on the bottom of this device, and in between them you’ll notice the Type-C USB charging port.
So, if this is the Meizu PRO 7, what about the bezel-less handset that had leaked a couple of times thus far? Is Meizu planning to release a whole new line of devices which will sport no bezels? Well, it is quite possible, though do keep in mind that those leaks might not even be legit, who knows if Meizu plans to release such a phone in the near future. In any case, Meizu is rumored to release that bezel-less handset at the end of December, on December 24th, to be exact, so we’ll see how accurate the leaks are.
