The company has taken the wraps off its latest Realme 7 series in India today. The Realme 7 is the world’s first phone to be powered by the MediaTek Helio G95 chipset, coupled with a 64MP quad-camera setup and 30W fast-charging.

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.

I think the integrated features and the price point matches well. Really like the quad camera aspect along with the strong battery and Dart charge aspect. Helio g95 seems like it will be the highlight of this smartphone.
