The Realme X7 Pro is a potentially interesting flagship-level phone as it comes with the 5G-capable MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ SoC, a 120Hz AMOLED display and 65 watt (W) charging. Then again, it has only been available in China thus far. A new registration with a Thai regulator may change that situation soon, however.

The MediaTek Dimensity processor series poses an intriguing alternative to Qualcomm's 2020 Snapdragon line-up at various tiers. However, phones based on these 5G-enabled SoCs are still thin on the ground in terms of international availability. A new leak hints that Realme's X7 Pro might be on its way outside of China to alleviate this situation somewhat.

This phone is powered by the the 1000+, which is Dimensity's nearest approximation of the Snapdragon 865 in terms of performance, and a premium 120Hz refresh rate for its 6.55-inch FHD+ display. It also has up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage, quad rear cameras with a 64MP rear camera and a 4500mAh battery that charges at up to 65W (as indeed will the upcoming OnePlus 8T flagship).

It also now has approval for sale on the Thai smartphone market. This country's national bureau of telecommunications (or NBTC) has reportedly certified a device called the Realme RMX2121 - the X7 Pro.

The new document also specifies it will be a 5G device, which may mean it will ship with the Dimensity 1000+ in this country, rather than as an alternative variant with a different SoC. This, then, may increase the chances that the same phone may make it into yet more regions before too long.

It may be too early to guess at pricing for international markets, although for context the device currently goes for 2199 yuan (~US$323) for a 6GB base model to 3199 yuan (~$471) for a top-end SKU.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
