In this news, we discuss the Realme 7 5G brings 5G connectivity to very capable mid-range device with 120Hz screen.
Realme 7 5G is the most advanced smartphone just added to the company’s 7 series. The new smartphone supports next-generation 5G networks in the UK, becoming the first such phone in Realme’s serial number set. Enabling 5G connectivity is a MediaTek Dimensity 800U chipset, which is a cheap chipset with built-in 5G modem available on some other 5G Realme phones available in China. The Realme 7 5G is a big upgrade from the vanilla Realme 7 which is available in India for Rs 14,999. Not only 5G but the Realme 7 5G also brings a 120Hz display.
The Realme 7 5G was launched in the UK by the company, which is the first market to get the new phone from Realme. However, this phone does not appear to be new. According to the specs of this smartphone, it looks like a rebranded version of the Realme V5 5G which was released in China a few months ago. This means that Realme might limit the V-series to the Chinese market, while the rest of the markets will get 5G connectivity in different avatars. But all is not concrete at the moment. Realme may have different plans for different markets like its plans to launch the Realme X7 series in India soon.
Realme 7 5G Price
The Realme 7 5G will be available for an introductory price of 229 EUR (around Rs 20,000) before the price reverts to the original of 279 EUR (around Rs 24,500). It will come in a blue color from November 30 on Amazon in European countries.
Realme 7 5G Specifications
Realme 7 5G uses an octa-core MediaTek Dimensity 800U processor with built-in 5G to provide the smartphone with 5G connectivity. But this phone only has less than 6 GHz bandwidth available for 5G connectivity; there is no mmWave type which ensures higher 5G speeds on some carriers in the UK. It has a 6.5-inch 1080p LCD display that offers a refresh rate of up to 120Hz, which is an upgrade from the 90Hz refresh rate of the standard Realme 7. But while it looks good on paper, there will be less or no difference in how you consume content on the screen. The maximum difference will be noticed when playing games or scrolling content. This is by far the maximum refresh rate received by a Realme number serial device.
Moving on, the Realme 7 5G brings only one RAM and memory configuration, which is 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of RAM. The vanilla Realme 7 has more than one variant of RAM and storage, giving you enough choices in the segment. Anyway, if you think that’s not enough, you can add a microSD card up to 256GB inside the Realme 7 5G. It has an LCD display, which means you can’t expect the fingerprint sensor to be under the screen. Instead, the Realme 7 5G has a fingerprint sensor mounted on the power button on the side. I think it’s a more convenient location for a fingerprint sensor, compared to those on the back or on the screen.
Photography on the Realme 7 5G is handled by four cameras. There is a 48 MP main camera which is responsible for the kind of photography the phone has to offer. This is a downgrade of the 64MP camera from the vanilla Realme 7. I tested this sensor and found it to be good enough for the price you pay. You have a night mode and a macro mode in the camera. There are three other sensors on the back of the device, including an 8MP ultra-wide sensor, a 2MP macro sensor, and a 2MP depth sensor stacked vertically. The front camera for selfies uses a 16MP sensor that also supports portrait mode. This camera is housed inside a punch hole in the upper left corner of the screen. In my experience, this kind of setup for the front camera is not at all inconvenient when playing games or watching videos.
Realme 7 5G uses a 5000mAh battery that can charge up to 30W with the included Dart Charge power supply. Realme claims that the battery in this phone can go from 0 to 50% in about 26 minutes. I had tested this claim on the regular Realme 7 and found it almost true. My observations are collected in this review. Apart from that, the Realme 7 5G has a 3.5mm headphone jack for the joy of gamers. The Realme 7 5G supports Dolby Atmos, which allows it to deliver premium sound. Realme 7 5G looks like a solid phone on paper, but how good it is in the real world is something only time will tell.
