Realme’s popular number series has been refreshed for the season, once again bringing features from higher price points to the budget segment. Here’s everything you need to know about the Realme 7 series.
The Realme 7 series currently consists of the Realme 7 and the Realme 7 Pro, succeeding the Realme 6 series from March. This time, it has tried to bring features such as fast charging, a new camera stack and market-first chipsets to the segment while scaling back on some others. As always, a few other connected and lifestyle products were also unveiled; More on them ahead.
Realme 7 Pro
The Realme 7 Pro brings a new design language to the series with a two-tone finish on the back along with a rectangular camera module. It will be available in two finishes – Mirror Silver and Mirror Blue – both with matte finishes for a more premium look. It is also the first phone to clear the TUV Rheinland Smartphone Reliability Verification. The earpiece also functions as the second loudspeaker for a stereo speaker setup.
The biggest talking point is the inclusion of 65W Super Dart fast charging, a feature that only a few flagships offered until now. It is claimed to take the 4,500mAh battery from 0 to full in about 35 minutes, with a 12-minute charge taking the phone to 50%. It also supports 18W PD and QC charging standards.
The other big change comes with the switch to Super AMOLED panel from LCD. The Realme 7 Pro sports a 6.4-inch display with a Full HD+ resolution, 90.8% screen-to-body ratio and 600nits of peak brightness. The refresh rate, however, goes back to 60Hz from the Realme 6 Pro’s 90Hz.
Last year, Realme announced the move to a 64MP camera system for all of it mid-tier and high-end smartphones. Today, it announced its second-gen 64MP f/1.8 camera which uses the Sony IMX682 image sensor which is 1/1.73-inches in size. It is joined by an 8MP f/2.3 ultra-wide shooter, a 2MP macro lens and a 2MP and a monochrome filter lens. The selfie camera has a resolution of 32MP and resides in a punch-hole notch on the top left. A barrage of new shooting modes from the recent flagship also trickle down.
On the inside, the Realme 7 Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 720G along with 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage and up to 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM. Other features include a 3.5mm headphone jack, triple card slot and Dolby Atmos audio.
The younger sibling doesn’t push the boundaries as much but still manages to bring a few important upgrades without affecting the price by a lot. The key upgrade is the inclusion of the MediaTek Helio G95 chipset. Making its global debut on the Realme 7, it is a high-end SoC design for gaming with strong graphics performance.
Catering to gamers, the device also sports a high refresh rate display – a 6.5-inch LCD panel with a Full HD+ resolution that runs at 90Hz. The fingerprint scanner resides is embedded in the power button on the right side.
The same quad-camera stack is also present here, with a 64MP Sony IMX682 primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, a macro shooter and a black and white portrait camera. The selfie camera has a resolution of 16MP.
The battery gets a nice bump up to 5,000mAh with support for 30W Flash charging. The same dual-finish design is also available but in Mist White and Mist Blue colourways. It is also certified by TUV Rheinland for smartphone reliability. The Realme 7 series runs on Realme UI 1.0 based on Color OS 7 atop Android 10.
