Chinese smartphone maker Meizu has rather quietly launched its flagship ‘Pro 7’ smartphone with dual display in India. The company announced the availability of the smartphone in the Indian market via its official Twitter handle. The Meizu Pro 7 is now available exclusively on Amazon India at a retail price of Rs 22,999.
Meizu had a muted 2017 in India. It launched only two smartphones last year, and had little presence due to wider availability and better pricing from other Chinese rivals. The launch of Meizu Pro 7 could mean company’s renewed focus on the market, which is one of the fastest growing smartphone market in the world. On Amazon India, the smartphone is being sold by a third-party retailer known as ITECH, and it mentions that Pro 7 will be available in limited stocks only.
