Realme plans to bring the Realme X7 5G to India next year
Earlier this year, Realme launched the Realme X50 Pro in India, its first 5G smartphone in that market. The company is now committing to launch more 5G devices in the country, with plans to “democratize 5G technology in 2021.”
The launch in question will be for the Realme X7 series, and that will be just the start. The company said it will then bring 5G technology to even more devices, with the hopes of becoming a 5G leader.
We were the first to introduce 5G smartphones in India with #realmeX50Pro. Now our plan is to democratize 5G technology in 2021 starting with the launch of #realmeX7 series & then bring it to more devices. #DareToLeap with us as #realme gets ready to be the 5G leader.

Realme originally introduced the X7 and X7 Pro for the European market in September. Those devices included Dimensity 800 and Dimensity 1000+ chips, respectively, along with support for 65W SuperDart Charge technology. It’s unclear if Realme plans to make any changes to either X7 series device when they hit the Indian market. But they’ll know doubt turn heads when they’re released, especially the Realme X7 Pro, which features a 120Hz AMOLED display, quad-camera setup, dual stereo speakers, and a 4500mAh battery.
The Realme X7 series was originally announced for Europe.
While it’s exciting to hear Realme has plans to bring the X7 series to India, buyers won’t have the opportunity to use them to their fullest capabilities — at least not at first. That’s because there are no 5G networks in India, as the government has yet to auction spectrum for the technology. But by releasing 5G devices now, Realme will be prepared for the inevitable launch of 5G networks in the country.
This year, we’ve seen a flood of 5G devices in the mid-range and high-end markets. Even Apple jumped on the trend with the iPhone 12 series, and there’s no signs of that trend slowing down as more 5G networks are erected around the world. Hence, Realme’s insistence on releasing the X7 series in India next year.
