After releasing the Realme 7 and Realme X7, Realme is set to launch a cheaper device that will go against Xiaomi's Redmi 9 in an attempt to win some market share in that high-volume market segment. Details of the Realme 7i have now leaked in full, and it keeps up with the competition rather exquisitely.

Realme has been on a roll this month. The OPPO sub-brand has released a slew of device so far, starting with the Realme 7 and Realme 7 Pro, and on to the more feature-packed Realme X7 and Realme X7 Pro. The company doesn't appear to be done with its 7-series, however, and is set to release yet another device.

The new phone will be the Realme 7i, and appears to be positioned similarly to the Redmi 9 in its own lineup. That means it will sit below the Realme 7 in Realme's budget phone pecking order. The Realme 7i is expected to sport a 6.5-inch 90 Hz LCD. Sadly, the display will be a 720p panel. That's a shame, as the Redmi 9 now offers a 1080p display. It's offset by the high-refresh rate, however.

Under the hood of the Realme 7i will be a Snapdragon 662. At the moment, we cannot confirm how it compares to the Helio G80 on the Redmi 9. Be on the lookout for a thorough comparison piece, though. While the Redmi 9 tops out at 6 GB of RAM, the Realme 7i will go up to 8 GB. Storage maxes out at 128 GB.

Supplying the Realme 7i with power will be a 5000 mAh battery. It doesn't get Realme's 65 W SuperDart charging, however, and is capped at 18 W. Housed within a hole punch will be a 16 MP selfie camera, while the back of the phone will play host to a quad-cam setup comprised of a 16 MP main camera, an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle shooter, and two presumably useless 2 MP sensors. 

We'll be sure to keep you updated on this.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
