Along with the new devices, Meizu announced its new Flyme OS 7. It is based on Android Nougat 7.1.2. This might push back carriers and customers, because an older system goes out of date earlier, hence making a phone unsecured way before it should be.
Company representatives confirmed the new OS is all about localization, so they improved plenty of features and their translations. There is also plenty of new gestures to wake-up the phone which can be used as a security step between the swipe and the grid pattern.
The OS brings new AI beauty camera features that recognizes age and skin type. It applies corrections without ruining the skin texture and can work even in a video call on WeChat. This would bring online dating to the next level where not only selfies, but live videos can also be changed.
The Face Unlock feature comes with enhanced performance from Sensetime and should bring 0.1-second unlock speed which might put the phone on par with the iPhone X and ahead of most Android devices.
With a darker theme your AMOLED would employ less battery and Flyme utilizes this feature very well. There is now a dark theme of the phone that can be applied even for apps. Along with switching white with black, the mode has better color surroundings detection and adjustment of the color hue and transparency.
The number of new functions is over 300, while optimizations go as high as 1,300. Almost all Meizu devices should be receiving the update OTA right away, although some older phones have to wait a little bit more.
