Realme 7 and 7 Pro with Quad Rear Cameras Launched in India
After launching the Realme C12 and C15 in India last week, Realme has today launched two new smartphones: Realme 7 and 7 Pro. While the C12 and C15 are affordable options that start at Rs 8,999 and Rs 9,999 respectively, the Realme 7 and 7 Pro are the company’s newest mid-range offerings and successors to the Realme 6 and 6 Pro. Let’s take a look at what the two new devices have to offer.
Realme 7 and 7 Pro: Design and Display
The Realme 7 and 7 Pro both come with what the company calls a ‘mirror design’, which essentially allows for a visual change that brings along different lighting effects. Towards the front, the vanilla Realme 7 features a 6.5-inch display with a 90.5% screen-to-body ratio and FHD+ screen resolution. The display offers a 90Hz refresh rate and has Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3 on top.
On the other hand, the Realme 7 Pro gets an ever-so-slightly smaller display, which comes in at 6.4-inch and an FHD+ resolution. The display is an AMOLED and offers a 90.8% screen-to-body ratio. Both Realme 7 and 7 Pro come in two colors, with the Realme 7 offering Mist White and Mist Blue, and the Realme 7 Pro having Mirror White and Mirror Blue as the two color options.
Realme 7 and 7 Pro: Performance
At its core, the two phones run on different chipsets. On the one hand, the vanilla Realme 7 uses the all-new MediaTek Helio G95 (with Mali-G76 GPU) chipset running under the hood, while the Realme 7 Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 720G (with Adreno 618 GPU). To assist the processor, there is 6GB and 8GB of RAM on both models, and 64GB/128GB storage on Realme 7 and 128GB on the 7 Pro. For powering the internals, the vanilla Realme 7 includes a 5000mAh battery with 30W Dart Charge support, whereas the Realme 7 Pro comes with a slightly smaller 4500mAh battery with 65W SuperDart Charging.
For connectivity, the two devices come with dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, and Bluetooth 5.0. They run on realmeUI based on Android 10. Besides, the Realme 7 Pro also comes with dual stereo speakers with support for Dolby Atmos and Hi-Res Audio. To authenticate users, there is a side-mounted fingerprint scanner on the regular Realme 7 and an in-display scanner on the 7 Pro.
Realme 7 and 7 Pro: Camera
In the camera department, the Realme 7 and 7 Pro sport a quad-camera setup on the rear with an LED flash. This setup includes a 64MP (f/1.8) primary (Sony IMX682) sensor accompanied by an 8MP (f/2.3) ultra-wide-angle lens, a 2MP (f/2.4) B&W portrait lens, and a 2MP (f/2.4) macro lens. However, when it comes to the front-facing camera, the two phones rely on different sensors: the regular Realme 7 has a 16MP (f/2.0) sensor, whereas the 7 Pro comes with a 32MP (f/2.5) sensor.
Realme 7 and 7 Pro: Pricing and Availability
The Realme 7 comes in two configurations: 6GB + 64GB and 8GB + 128GB, priced at Rs 14,999 and Rs 16,999, respectively.
