Meizu, the Chinese phone maker had just recently launched two of its flagship devices, the Meizu Pro7 and the Meizu Pro7 Plus smartphones. The stand-out feature of these phones was a secondary display in the rear in rectangular shape.
Now, there are leaked images, which suggest that there may be yet another phone in the pipeline from Meizu and it might be named X2. It is also believed that the Meizu X2 will also sport a secondary display in the rear, but has a round shape to it. Incidentally, Meizu had already launched a predecessor to this phone in the form of the Meizu X last year.
The circular display resembles that of a watch dial. There are doubts if this secondary display will have full functionality or may carry only limited information, like the clock and the battery charging icon etc. Apart from the design of the secondary display, one is also able to noticed from these leaked images that the device will have a lone camera (no dual camera setup) and the LED flash can also be spotted on the top.
Being a leaked image, there is no official confirmation of any sort and the other specs and features of the Meizu X2 are naturally not out yet.
The Meizu Pro7 and Pro7 Plus sort of broke ranks with an AMOLED secondary display in the rear. Before that the customers could only see the E-ink display with limited capabilities. There is really no reason why the circular display on the back of the Meizu X2 should not also be an AMOLED display.
Similarly, one of the key features highlighted about the Meizu Pro 7 phones was that the rear screen could help with taking selfies with the rear camera. The only apprehension among the observers is that the leaked images seem to indicate that the size of this secondary display could be quite small and it is not clear how much information can be clearly displayed on it.
Since the sources leaking the pictures of the proposed Meizu X2 smartphone claim that the phone will be released during the second half of the year, one hopes to receive more information from the company in the coming weeks.
