The double curved screens made popular by Samsung with its recent edge-branded smartphones are starting to catch on even among competing manufacturers, it seems. Case in point: Meizu. The Chinese company is working on its own ‘edge’ handset, which might launch in the second half of this year. The existence of the phone has apparently been confirmed by Meizu CEO Huang Zhang.
An image supposedly depicting the handset has been leaked in China, and you can see it below. The phone will either be called Meizu Pro 6 Edge or Pro 7. It’s expected to cost at least $450, and will run Meizu’s upcoming Flyme OS 6 based on Android. This version of the software will have some kind of dedicated ‘edge shortcuts’ functionality, something similar to Samsung’s Edge Screen we assume.
Other information about the device isn’t available yet, but it should sport flagship-level specs to go with that display.
