After a long time, a new Meizu Pro 7 leak has hit the web. The folks over at GizChina.it have accessed some source code that seems to contain a few key specs of the Meizu Pro 7.
According to the source code, the Meizu Pro 7 is going to be powered by the deca-core MediaTek Helio X30 SoC under the hood. In case you aren’t aware, the Helio X30 is MediaTek’s new flagship chip for 2017 and is manufactured on a 10nm process. In terms of performance, the Helio X30 is expected to be a massive improvement over previous flagship MediaTek SoCs. However, it remains to be seen if it can match the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and Samsung Exynos 8 8895 octa-core chips in terms of benchmark performance. The chipset integrates the IMG PowerVR 7ZTP-MT4 GPU clocked at 800 MHz, a much more powerful solution compared to what we have seen on the Helio X25 and X20 SoCs.
Like a number of new flagship smartphones from Chinese Android OEMs, the Meizu Pro 7 will feature a dual-camera setup at the back. The source code reveals the primary sensor will be a 12MP Sony IMX386 while the secondary sensor will be Sony’s IMX286 module. For selfies, the Pro 7 will be equipped with a 16MP snapper sourced from Samsung (S5K368).
A “dual display” also finds mention in the source code, possibly referring to the presence of two displays on the front. Dual displays aren’t completely unheard of though, as we have seen such implementations in LG’s V-series phablets and more recently in the HTC U Ultra.
Rest of the specs remain a complete mystery, so all we can do is wait for more leaks to pour in before Meizu makes the smartphone official. Going by a leaked Meizu roadmap for 2017 that had been leaked online late last year, the Pro 7 is likely to be announced sometime next month.
