Realme 7 Pro Special Edition, Realme 7i, Buds Air Pro, and Buds Wireless Pro launched in India
Following the launch of the Realme Narzo 20 Series late last month, the Chinese OEM has now unveiled a wide range of new devices in the Indian market. During a recent live-streamed event, Realme lifted the covers off a special edition Realme 7 Pro, Realme 7i, Realme Buds Air Pro, Buds Wireless Pro, and more. Here’s a quick look at the new smartphones and wireless earphones from Realme:
Shortly after debuting the Realme 7 Series, the company launched a slightly tweaked version of the Realme 7 in Indonesia called the Realme 7i. The device featured a 6.5-inch HD+ LCD with a 90Hz refresh rate and a hole-punch cutout for the selfie camera. It included Qualcomm’s mid-range Snapdragon 662 SoC and a quad-camera array with a 64MP primary camera. Now, Realme has launched the device in the Indian market.
The Snapdragon 662 chipset on the device is coupled with 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 128GB UFS 2.1 storage, and it’s backed by a 5,000mAh battery with 18W fast charging support. The 64MP primary camera on the Realme 7i is paired with an 8MP wide-angle sensor, a 2MP monochrome sensor, and a 2MP macro sensor. Over on the front, the device has a 16MP selfie camera.
Other features include a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type-C port for charging and syncing, a rear-mounted capacitive fingerprint scanner, Bluetooth 5.0, and 802.11b/g/n/a/ac dual-band WiFi. On the software front, the device runs Realme UI based on Android 10.
Realme 7 Pro Sun Kissed Leather
Alongside the Realme 7i, the company has also launched a special edition Realme 7 Pro Sun Kissed Leather variant. The device features a two-tone vegan micro-grain leather on the back panel. The new leather finish not only makes the device look good but also offers a premium soft-touch feel for a better user experience.
Interestingly, the Realme logo on the back of the special edition device isn’t printed onto the leather. Instead, the company has opted for a metal insert that won’t wear off over time. The hardware specifications of the special edition device remain the same as the regular Realme 7 Pro.
Realme Buds Air Pro
The Realme Buds Air Pro is the company’s latest pair of TWS earphones, which feature a design similar to Apple’s AirPods Pro. The TWS earphones Pro comes with Active Noise Cancellation up to 35db, a 94ms super-low latency gaming mode, and up to 20 hours of total playback with ANC enabled.
The Buds Air Pro packs in the company’s customized S1 high-performance noise cancellation chip, which is capable of offering the best noise cancellation experience while conserving power. The TWS earbuds pack in 10mm bass boost drivers, a dual-mic design for noise cancellation, instant auto-connect, Google fast pair support, and IPX4 water resistance. The earbuds will be available in two color variants — Soul White and Rock Black.
Realme Buds Wireless Pro
The Realme Buds Wireless Pro is the company’s latest neckband-style wireless earphone, which also comes with Active Noise Cancellation up to 35db. The wireless earbuds feature 13.6mm bass boost drivers, Sony LDAC Hi-Res Audio certification, and a 119ms low latency gaming mode. The earphones weigh in at just 33g, and they include magnetic earbuds that will help you conserve battery when the earbuds are not in use.
The earbuds are powered by the same S1 chip, and they include a high-definition microphone with environmental noise cancellation. Realme claims that the earphones can last up to 22 hours on a single charge without ANC and up to 16 hours with ANC enabled. The Buds Wireless Pro also features fast charging support that can charge the earphones from 0-100% in just 1.5 hours.
