The new Realme 7 5G is one of the UK’s cheapest 5G phones
Realme on Thursday introduced the Realme 7 5G, an affordable 5G option headed for the UK.
On paper, the smartphone packs a real punch, featuring a 6.5-inch 120Hz FHD+ LCD, a MediaTek 800U processor, and support for 5G networks. The device also comes equipped with up to 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a beefy 5000mAh battery. The Realme 7 5G comes with a Dart Charge brick and supports 30W charging, so you can replenish the battery from 0 percent to 50 percent in less than 30 minutes.
The Realme 7 5G also sports a quad-camera setup, which includes a 48MP main sensor, 8MP ultra wide-angle lens, 2MP macro lens, and 2MP black and white sensor for portrait mode. The device also features a 16MP front-facing camera, which lives in a small hole punch in the top left corner of the display.

Rounding out the device is a side-mounted capacitive fingerprint sensor, support for Dolby Atmos and Hi-Res Audio, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. And for those who need more storage, you can expand the device’s storage using a microSD card.
As far as budget devices go, the Realme 7 5G is a winner on paper. About our only complaint is that it’s launching with Android 10 (with Realme UI) instead of Android 11. Even still, the Realme 7 5G offers a lot without breaking the bank.
The Realme 7 5G, which launches in Mist Blue and Flash Silver, will retail for £279 through Amazon when it launches on November 27. However, consumers can take advantage of a Black Friday price of £229, making it one of the most affordable 5G phones in the UK.
