Realme confirms an Indian launch for the X7 and X7 Pro
One of the most interesting things about mobile tech in 2020 is the rise of the Dimensity SoC series. MediaTek has managed to develop these 5G processors in order to target numerous tiers of the smartphone market that might otherwise be dominated by the same few Snapdragon equivalents, while also providing some arguably necessary competition in the same spaces. On the other hand, the intriguing (and increasingly well-priced) devices based on these processors have rarely made it out of what is often their home market of China.
Now, Realme has affirmed it is working on changing that with the launch of the X7 series in a new market. These phones may be a big hit there, particularly as the Pro variant rocks the highest-end Dimensity 1000+ chipset and a 120Hz AMOLED display.
The vanilla model also offers the lesser-spotted Dimensity 800U. Given these specs, it is a slight shame that they will only reach India by 2021. Realme India's CEO, Madhav Sheth, has stated that this is indeed the case in a recent tweet.
Then again, the executive also mentioned that the X7s are just the tip of the incoming Realme 5G-berg in India. Therefore, more potentially Dimensity-powered phones making it to this market may improve the chances that they will also start gravitating towards others in the near future.
