Meizu PRO 7 at TENAA – 10nm CPU, dual Sony sensors

Meizu PRO 7 at TENAA – 10nm CPU, dual Sony sensors

Meizu isn’t exactly one of the more popular smartphone brands outside of China but, for the past weeks, it has managed to pique market watchers’ curiosity. Not because it has banished all bezels (it still has some) or implemented an onscreen fingerprint scanner (it doesn’t). Instead, it is an odd curiosity because of the way it is implementing a niche “second screen” feature. Fortunately for Meizu fans, that won’t be the only interesting thing about it, at least based on this sighting at China’s TENAA agency.

Meizu PRO 7 invite has a hidden surprise

Meizu PRO 7 invite has a hidden surprise

If there were any doubt that the Meizu PRO 7 would have a rather unconventional second screen on its back, the company's press invite puts those to rest. Or at least that seems to be the case based on these leaked photos of what is allegedly the boxed invitation for the smartphone's unveiling in two weeks. Because in addition to the details of the event, the box also contained a replica of the Meizu PRO 7, including its second screen.

Meizu PRO 7 second screen might actually be a mirror only

Meizu PRO 7 second screen might actually be a mirror only

Well, now it makes more sense now. Not completely but it’s just a wee bit less ridiculous than before. When rumors started to swirl around the Meizu PRO 7’s second screen, it was rather confusing. That screen wasn’t some grayscale, power saving screen on the back but a full color one. Based on a new set of photos leaking on the Internet, it might not even be a second screen as we know it so far. Instead, it will simply be a mirror screen.

The Meizu Pro 7 is making less and less sense

The Meizu Pro 7 is making less and less sense

A second screen on the back of your phone? Sure, we've seen two YotaPhones already. A smaller, full-color LCD screen on the back of your phone? Maybe. It's just a variation of the LG Second Screen or Samsung Edge Screen right? But how about one that's large enough to play games, presumably using touch? OK, that might be stretching things too far. But if this latest leak is anywhere near the mark, then that's the rather absurd feature that the Meizu Pro 7 will have when it comes out.

Meizu PRO 7 second screen might have colors after all

Meizu PRO 7 second screen might have colors after all

The Meizu PRO 7, when it comes out in the next or so months, is going to be one strange phone. That's going to be true whether this latest bit comes to pass or not. Putting a second screen on a phone's back isn't exactly new. There's even a Kickstarter for offering something similar for the iPhone 7 pair. But whereas previous implementations put a full-sized e-ink screen on the back, the Meizu PRO 7 will supposedly have a "mini" screen instead. And it might not even be grayscale e-ink at all.

Meizu Pro 7 could have a second display on its back

Meizu Pro 7 could have a second display on its back

Phones with second screens are nothing new. LG and HTC put a strip at the top of their phones. Yota even has a full-sized one made of e-ink. So when rumors swirl that Chinese OEM Meizu is planning to have one for its upcoming Pro 7, it might not be that much of a shock. But how and where it plans to implement it, at least based on these leaks, could be. That’s because the Meizu Pro 7 might have a somewhat small second display in just a small section of its back.

Meizu M5c arrives bearing colors and Android Nougat

Meizu M5c arrives bearing colors and Android Nougat

Roughly 3 months since it announced the mid-range Meizu M5s, the Chinese company is coming out again with an even more wallet-friendly membe of its M5 family. The new M5c isn't going to win any race, but it tries to make up for that with a splash of color. But perhaps more than its looks, Meizu fans will probably be elated that it is also the first Meizu phone to run the latest Flyme 6, finally ushering in the age of Nougat.

Meizu Super mCharge tops up to full in 20 minutes

Meizu Super mCharge tops up to full in 20 minutes

With smartphones these days that are slowly but surely turning away from removable batteries, the battery problem can only be solved in two ways: either with a bigger battery or faster charging times. Since bigger batteries usually mean bigger phones, most manufacturers and users might prefer the latter solution. But even the fastest charging tech takes more than an hour to go from drained to full charged. Unless they adopt Meizu's Super mCharge, which promises to fully charge a battery in the time you can finish a cup of coffee. Leisurely, of course.

Meizu M5s launched to offer a stylish mid-range option

Meizu M5s launched to offer a stylish mid-range option

It looks like Meizu isn’t waiting for MWC to reveal its first smartphone for the year. And perhaps that’s a smart move to avoid getting ignored in the midst of a flood of announcements. The Meizu M5s, after all, might have a hard time competing for attention, given its mid-range nature. That said, it pretty much makes up for it with premium looks and a price tag to die for.

Meizu Pro 6 Plus debuts to fill the Note 7 void

Meizu Pro 6 Plus debuts to fill the Note 7 void

Chinese manufacturer Meizu has just announced the Pro 6 Plus, a larger, more powerful version of the Pro 6 smartphone that debuted back in April. If you're still suffering from a Galaxy Note 7-shaped hole in your heart (or pocket), this could be what you're looking for. It's not just the fact that both are phablet-sized devices, it's that the Pro 6 Plus has more than a few features that are identical to the now-dead Note 7, including the display, processor, RAM, and storage options.
