Realme 7: Specs & Features
Realme switches up the design with every new series launch and the new Realme 7 is no different. The smartphone boasts a polycarbonate build, much like its predecessor, but the company now features an AG-Split gradient design. You can see the dual-tone finish on the rear, along with the vertical camera array. There’s also a side-mounted fingerprint sensor onboard, which doubles up as the power button.
Realme 7 includes a 6.5-inch Full-HD+ IPS LCD display with a 90Hz refresh rate and 120HZ touch response rate. The display also has a 20:9 aspect ratio, 2400 x 1080 resolution, 90.5% screen-to-body ratio, and Gorilla Glass 3 protection on top.
This is the exact display that’s found aboard the Realme 6 and 6i. You have a punch-hole cutout, which houses a 16MP (f/2.0) sensor, at the top left. As for the quad-rear camera setup, Realme 7 includes a primary 64MP (f/1.8) Sony IMX682 sensor. It is coupled with an 8MP (f/2.3) ultra-wide lens with a 119-degree FOV, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP portrait lens.
Under the hood, Relame 7 is powered by the MediaTek Helio G95 chipset. It offers a minor performance jump over its predecessor Helio G90T, which is baked into Realme 6 and 6i. The chipset is paired with up to 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM and up to 128GB of built-in UFS 2.1 storage, expandable up to 256GB via the dedicated microSD card slot.
Realme 7 runs Android 10-based Realme UI out-of-the-box. The device also comes equipped with a massive 5,000mAh battery with 30W Dart charging support. Realme claims that you can fully juice this battery pack in around 65 minutes, which is great. The device also includes a USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth 5.0, and Wi-Fi 802.11ac to round up the kitty.
