The Realme X7 Pro will be powered by the same Dimensity 1000+ on the Redmi K30 Ultra but beneath that will be the Realme X7 which will feature the all-new MediaTek Dimensity 800U. The phone has now also been tested on AnTuTu and shown to hold its own against the best Qualcomm currently has to offer in that space.

Realme is set to launch a whole bunch of phones in the coming weeks. The OPPO brain-child will release a Realme X7 Pro that's aimed straight at the heart of the Redmi K30 Ultra but beneath that will be a cheaper, less powerful device—the Realme X7.

Going by information from multiple sources, the Realme X7 will be powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 800U. That chipset was only just launched last week, and the Realme X7 will have the honor of being the first smartphone to carry it beneath the hood. 

The Dimensity 800U appears to be positioned slightly above the Dimensity 800, and offers dual-SIM 5G support. The chipset, aboard the Realme X7, also made its way over to AnTuTu where it posted some impressive numbers. In the CPU test, it recorded a score of 107,310, while putting up a GPU score of 90,345.

Those scores aren't quite as good as what we saw from the Dimensity 820—unsurprisingly—but do manage to keep up with the Snapdragon 765G pretty well. Compared to the Qualcomm SoC, the Dimensity 800U has a 5% CPU advantage, and about a 3% GPU disadvantage.
