Websites which manage to reveal details of smartphones much before they are officially announced, generally gather information from benchmarking sites or from other sources. But this time a chipset manufacturer, MediaTek, has, knowingly or inadvertently, showed a new smartphone, the Meizu Pro 7 in an advertisement.
The mobile processor company proudly claimed the yet to be launched phone will be sporting its latest Helio X30 chipset flashing images of the phone for good measure. This was sufficient for the avid followers of such information to grab the details and reveal other information on the phone; some were already rumored and others added now.
The instantly noticeable in the Meizu Pro 7 is a secondary display on the back. It occupies one strip in the rear panel and is a copy of the display in the front and interestingly it is a RGB display, not the E-ink display one has so far heard about in secondary displays.

Apart from this, the phone will feature a 5.2-inch full HD display and will sport a dual camera setup in the rear. Both are 12MP sensors and from Sony: IMX 386 and IMX 286. The front selfie camera is 16MP in size.
There is also speculation that a larger 5.7-inch Meizu Pro 7 Plus is on the table. The images captured and observed closely reveal a few more hardware features. The bezels on the front display panel appear thin and there is a curved glass that can be observed. The conventional 3.5mm audio jack can be seen and the USB type C-Port charging jack is also available. The buttons for control of volume and for switching the device on and off are visible on the right side of the phone.
The Meizu Pro 7 is being predicted to be released in gold and black colors.
The phone is slated to be launched in the second half of the year, but the dates are yet to be revealed. As far as the pricing is concerned, the expectation is that it could be between Rs 27, 000 to Rs 36, 000 as and when launched with different storage and RAM variants.
