We have seen quite a few smartphones coming with secondary displays like the LG V10, V20 and the HTC U Ultra. All of these smartphones come with a secondary display sitting right above the primary display to keep showing information like notifications, time/date, and, quick shortcuts to apps and contacts. Well, Chinese manufacturer Meizu has launched the Meizu Pro 7, which also comes with a secondary display, but, at its back.
The Meizu Pro 7 comes with a 5.2-inch Full-HD Super AMOLED display on the front, but, it also comes with a 1.9-inch Super AMOLED at the back which shows information like notifications, weather and date/time. It can also be used to take a selfie using the dual rear cameras.
Yes, the Meizu Pro 7 not only comes with a dual display, but, also comes with a 12 MP dual camera setup at the back. One of them is a monochrome sensor which helps you capture more details, whereas, the second one is a RGB sensor. There’s also a 16 MP camera on front. Meizu says that the phone comes with four-in-one algorithm which is activated automatically in dark environments to take better photos.
