Chinese microblogging website, Weibo, recently leaked images of the new Meizu smartphone, and the news has sent thrills through the industry.

 

The rendering appears to show a sleek phone with bezel-less edges and it is strongly rumoured to be the Pro 7 model which the company has been developing. It is set to directly compete with the Xiaomi Mi Mix, another decent-quality, affordable Chinese phone model.

While it has garnered favourable user responses from the entry-level and mid-range phones, Meizu is yet to enjoy success from its top-range devices – the Pro 7 could change this with its use of innovation.

According to Gizbot, the predominant rumour around this phone claims that Meizu may be using either Samsung’s Exynos processor, or Huawei’s Kirin 960 processor as the power source for the Pro 7. It is also expected to be using the Kirin 960 chipset, which is a huge step up from the MediaTek chipset previously used in Meizu’s top-range devices.

The Pro 7’s bezel-less screen will be 5.6 inches in size with a standard 6GB of RAM, and is set to be released on Christmas Eve.
