Earlier today we informed you about the launch of Meizu Pro 7 and Meizu Pro 7 Plus Android smartphones in the Chinese market. Meizu pro 7 will come at a starting price of 2,880 Yuan ($426) and the bigger Meizu pro 7 Plus will cost 3,580 Yuan ($530) for the base variant. The handsets will start selling on August 5 in the Chinese market and we expect the company to announce their global availability soon.
The new metal-glass clad Meizu smartphones sports Super AMOLED screens, not just on front but also on the rear side. The 1.9-inch rear secondary displays are undoubtedly the key highlight feature of the handsets and are provided to enhance the user experience.
The secondary displays on the two devices can be used to check notifications, weather, e-mails, calendars, etc. Users can also switch on the camera and click a selfie without even turning on the main display.
All of these will help in preserving the battery life as users don't need to switch on the main display every time they receive a notification and wants to perform the above mentioned tasks.
