Realme is one of the most important companies in the mid-range segment. Moreover, it is now playing an important role in the expansion of 5G smartphones to the budget segment with the Realme V5 reveal as the first 5G device to come under $150. The company recently announced two mid-range phones dubbed Realme 7 and 7 Pro in India. These devices are quite cheap and come with interesting specifications, however, the company still has another device to announce dubbed Realme 7i.
Realme already confirmed that the Realme 7i will be coming on September 17 in Indonesia. Now, thanks to a GeekBench listing we have some of the key specifications coming with the handset. First of all, it sports the Snapdragon 662 which is a mid-range chipset the sits below the Snapdragon 665. Moreover, the device comes with 8GB of RAM which is a generous amount for this segment. Last but not least, it comes with Android 10 which may be a little disappointing now that Android 11 is available.

The handset scored 1,516 points on single-core tests and 5,420 in the multi-core department. Worth noting that these results have been achieved on the GeekBench 4.x platform. The results will be less expressive once the device passes through the GeekBench 5.x benchmark.
Realme 7i alleged specifications
According to a recently leaked listing, the handset will flaunt a gorgeous 6.5-inch 90Hz HD+ display with a punch-hole 16MP camera. It’s interesting to see that even though this will not be an FHD+ display it will be quite smooth. According to a leaked slide, the handset has 128GB of Storage and we believe it also comes with microSD card support.
The handset also carries a Quad-Camera setup on the rear and it follows the design of the Realme 7 series. The setup combines a 64MP main camera, 8MP ultrawide, and dual 2MP cameras, presumably for macro and depth reading.
Lights are kept on by a 5,000mAh battery with an 18W fast-charging. It’s not as impressive as the jaw-dropping 65W fast-charging present on the Realme 7 Pro, however, it’s better having 18W in a budget device than a micro USB port capped with 5W or 10W charging.
The new budget smartphone will go official on September 17. The company will reveal it through a live stream video. While pricing and availability details are yet to be revealed we expect this device to be available in all markets where Realme is active. Moreover, its price should be below $200.
