Pretty much every phone maker has a device with top-tier specs these days, which is why companies are starting to turn to gimmicks like squeezable sides, support for modular accessories, and odd-looking designs.
Now Chinese phone maker Meizu is getting on on that second-screen action.
The new Meizu Pro 7 and Meizu Pro 7 Plus smartphones each have a secondary, 1.9 inch touchscreen display on the back of the phone, allowing you to view notifications, view the time, control music playback, and perform other actions while the primary display is dark.
The Meizu Pro 7’s primary display is a 5.2 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel Super AMOLED display and the phone features 4GB of RAM, 64GB of eMMC storage, a 3,000 mAh battery, and a MediaTek Helio deca-core processor.
Meizu’s Pro 7 Plus has a 5.7 inch, 2560 x 1440 pixel Super AMOLED screen, a 3,500 mAh battery, 6GB of RAM, and a choice of 64GB or 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage.
The larger model features Meizu’s mCharge 4.0 fast charging technology, while the 5.2 inch version feature mCharge 3.0. Both phones ship with Android 7.0 and feature dual 12MP Sony IMX386 cameras on the back and a 16MP front-facing camera.
Oh, one other nifty feature about that second screen on the back of the phone? It makes taking a selfie with the higher-quality rear camera a lot easier, since you can see what you look like before pushing the camera shutter button.
