realme 7 comes with a 6.5″ FHD+ IPS LCD display that features 90Hz refresh rate with 120Hz touch sampling rate. The screen is protected by Gorilla Glass 3 and also has a punch hole selfie camera.
Running the device is Helio G95 chip with Mali G76 GPU coupled with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage – which you can also expand with an external microSD card. The processor is an upgrade from the G90T that came with the realme 6.
It’s worth noting that the realme 7 is the first smartphone to use the Helio G95.
The phone will come with Android 10 and realme UI.
realme 7 comes with a 5000mAh battery with support for 30W Dart Charge and 15W USB Power Delivery. A 30W charger is included in the box.
realme promises that the 5000mAH battery will be charged up to 100% in 65 minutes.
realme 6 comes with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
For optics, we get a quad camera setup that includes a 64MP Sony IMX682, 1/1.73″ sensor, f/1.8 main, 8MP, ultra-wide-angle, f/2.3, 119° FoV, 2MP, monochrome depth sensor, f/2.4 and 2MP, macro, f/2.4. Hopefully, that SONY sensor increases the camera performance of the realme 7.
Video is recorded at 4K 30fps and 1080p at either 30 or 60fps.
Selfes are taken by a 16MP front facing camera in the ouch hole cutout.
realme 7 will come in either Misty White or Misty Blue colour options.
