We already know that the Meizu Pro 7 is coming this this month, and now we have the exact date. The Chinese company has confirmed that the device will be unveiled on July 26. The confirmation came in the form of an official press invite (see below).
If rumors and leaks so far are to go by, the selling point of the Pro 7 is a second screen that’s placed beneath the dual camera arrangement on the back. The screen will enable users to take selfies with rear cameras as well as play games.
Specs-wise, the Pro 7 has already been confirmed to sport the MediaTek Helio X30 chipset. There’ll also be a Plus variant that has been rumored to pack in Samsung’s Exynos 8895 SoC, although latest reports say that won’t be the case (see tweet below).

Anyway, it’s expected that both standard and Plus variants will be unveiled the same day.
For what it’s worth, alleged Pro 7 invitation images appeared on Weibo recently. The box contains a dummy Pro 7 unit that confirms the second screen as well as reveals July 26 unveiling. However, the source has removed the images since then.
