It seems like Meizu and Samsung actually held a low-key event on Friday, May 12, at least according to the source. This event was called ‘Meizu + Samsung Tech Day’, as the provided image proves. Now, this event was not publicized, and it is not known what the two companies discussed during it, but based on their history, we can always guess what they talked about, and what’s coming next, read on.
Now, as many of you know, several Meizu-branded flagship smartphones have been fueled by Samsung’s Exynos SoCs in the past. The latest such phone is the Meizu PRO 6 Plus, a device which was announced at the end of last year. The Meizu PRO 6 Plus is currently available for purchase, and is the company’s most powerful devices. That being said, the Meizu PRO 7 Plus is expected to ship with the Exynos 8895 64-bit octa-core processor, which is Samsung’s flagship processor which is currently fueling only the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus smartphones. Meizu still did not announce the Meizu PRO 7, though it is highly unlikely that we’ll see the Exynos 8895 inside of that phone, as rumors are saying that the Helio X30 will be included in the Meizu PRO 7, but nothing has been confirmed just yet.
In any case, chances are that the two companies talked about further cooperation, even though we still do not know the details, but are hoping that the details will leak out in the near future. Is it possible that more Meizu-branded devices will ship with Samsung’s Exynos chips in the near future? Well, nothing has been excluded at this point, as Samsung is making some more affordable Exynos-branded chips as well, which they usually utilize in their ‘Galaxy’ smartphones, but those chips could make their way to Meizu’s devices in the future as well. It’s also worth noting that Meizu and Qualcomm signed a global licensing agreement back in December last year, so chances are we’ll see some Snapdragon-fueled Meizu smartphones in the near future as well. That is more or less it, Meizu will announce a number of new devices before the end of this year, and it will be interesting to see what SoCs will fuel those phones.
