Realme 7 and Realme 7 Pro launched with a 64MP quad-camera array, 5,000mAh batteries, and more
Shortly after unveiling the Realme X7 series in its home country, the Chinese upstart has released two new devices. The Realme 7 and Realme 7 Pro succeed the Realme 6 series launched not too long ago. Both phones are, at best, incremental upgrades over their predecessors. One might argue that it is a downgrade of sorts.
As foretold by an earlier leak, the Realme 7 is the world's first phone to feature MediaTek's new Helio G95. It comes with a 6.5-inch FHD+ IPS LCD panel clocked at 90Hz. Its design is mostly identical to that of the Realme 6, with the phone's 16MP selfie camera occupying the screen's top-left corner. The phone's quad-camera array now has a 64MP Sony IMX682 sensor at the helm. It is assisted by an 8MP ultrawide lens, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. Lastly, the phone is powered by a 5,000mAh that supports fast charging at 30W. The Realme 7 retails for INR 14,999 (US$204) for the 6GB/64GB storage/RAM variant and INR 16,999 (US$231) for the 8GB/128GB flavor. It will be available on Flipkart and Realme's website on September 10.
Unlike the Realme 7, the Realme 7 Pro differs from its predecessor by quite a bit. It ditches the 6.6-inch high-refresh-rate (90Hz) LCD panel for a 6.40-inch 60Hz AMOLED screen for starters. Its 5,000mAh battery can be charged at 65W. Lastly, Realme has ditched its dual-selfie camera system for a single 32MP sensor. However, the rear camera array is identical to that of the Realme 7. For reasons unknown, the Realme 7 Pro comes with the Realme 6 Pro's Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G SoC. While the chip is still relevant in the current year, it is somewhat puzzling why Realme didn't use newer hardware like the recently-unveiled Snapdragon 732G. At the very least, both versions of the phone come with 128GB of internal storage. The 6GB RAM variant costs INR 19,999 (US$272) and the 8GB flavor (US$300). It will be up for grabs across the same channels but on September 14.
