Meizu's upcoming Pro 7 smartphone has been leaking a lot lately, with many of its outings showing us its intriguing second screen, which will be on its back underneath the dual camera arrangement. While this was first thought to be an e-Ink display, it's since been revealed to be a full color screen. It will enable such things as taking selfies with the rear cameras, and of course you'll also be able to play games on it.
That's the use case portrayed in the rather blurry leaked image below, which shows the bigger Meizu Pro 7 Plus this time around. It's the black device on the left, sitting pretty next to a gold Pro 7. This also gives us an idea of the size difference between the two, which won't be huge as you can see.
Unlike the Pro 7 which has been confirmed to sport the MediaTek Helio X30 chipset, the Plus version is rumored to get Samsung's Exynos 8895, the same SoC you can find inside the Galaxy S8 and S8+ (and soon the Note8). The Pro 7 Plus will allegedly launch in two versions, with the entry-level iteration going for CNY 3,299 ($486 or €424 at the current exchange rates). The top of the line model is to be priced at CNY 3,799 ($559, €488).
Both the Pro 7 and the Pro 7 Plus should finally become official towards the end of this month. Until then, we're surely going to see a lot more leaks regarding this duo, so stick around.
The concept seems interesting, I kind of dig it, but think about it - cases would be problematic, plus - you would have to buy another screen protector :P
That 2nd screen could be a real innovation if they would ditch those huge front bazels and also remove front camera and make completely bazel-less phone then no one would complain about their reason for 2nd display at back of a phone and they could s...
