Realme 7 and Realme 7 Pro with up to 65W SuperDart Charge launched in India

Realme has tasted varying degrees of success in the smartphone markets of China, India, Southeast Asia, and even Europe. The brand entered the market just about 2 years ago with the Realme 1. Since then, the company has gone on to launch several phones in quick succession across several markets. The Realme 6 and Realme 6 Pro were launched just back in March 2020, and half a year later, we have their successors. Meet the new Realme 7 and Realme 7 Pro, two smartphones that share very few similarities other than their name family.

The biggest change on the Realme 7 as against the Realme 6 is the upgrade in the SoC, along with a bigger battery, and the swap in for the Sony IMX682 sensor.

The Realme 7 is the first smartphone with the new MediaTek Helio G95 SoC. The specifications for the SoC indicate that it is very similar to the Helio G90T, but the predecessor is a pretty decent SoC, so no real complaints here. Realme did bump up the base RAM, though the RAM tech, and storage variants and tech remain the same across the half-yearly upgrade.

The other change is the battery. We now get a 5000 mAh battery as opposed to the 4300 mAh battery on the Realme 6. The predecessor also supported 30W fast charging through the proprietary charger, and so does this one, promising a full charge in 65 minutes.

Pricing and Availability

The Realme 7 will be available in two colors: Mist White and Mist Blue.

The phone will cost ₹14,999 for the 6GB + 64GB variant and ₹16,999 for the 8GB + 128GB variant. Sales begin from September 10 on Flipkart.com and Realme.com.

A lot has changed on the Realme 7 Pro, as compared to the Realme 6 Pro. First and foremost, you now get a Super AMOLED, though Realme has curiously shrunk down the size of the display. The refresh rate for the new display is indeed 60Hz — which is a step down from 90Hz refresh rate on the Realme 6 Pro’s LCD display.

The SoC, RAM, and storage tech remains the same as the Realme 6 Pro, though we no longer have a 64GB storage option and get to see a 256GB option. Much like the Realme 7, the 7 Pro also swaps in the Sony IMX682 sensor for its main camera. The front camera also sees an upgrade to a 32MP shooter this time.

By far the biggest change on the Realme 7 Pro is that the phone now comes with 65W SuperDart charge, which makes it the cheapest phone in the market to feature such high-speed charging technology that we have predominantly seen on flagships. The battery is only marginally bigger at 4,300 mAh, but it now takes just under 35 minutes for a full charge and just 12 minutes for a 50% charge. We had the opportunity to use the phone, so we’ll put Realme’s claims to the test in our upcoming review.

Pricing and Availability

The Realme 7 Pro will be available in two colors: Mirror White and Mirror Blue.

The phone will cost ₹19,999 for the 6GB + 128GB variant and ₹21,999 for the 8GB + 128GB variant. Sales begin from September 14 on Flipkart.com and Realme.com.
