Two years have passed since the introduction of Realme as an Oppo’s subsidiary. The brand gave birth to competitive smartphones with low-price tags and decent specifications. Now, Realme is a separate brand that only shares some resources with Oppo. The company has pretty much grown into various product segments offering smart TVs, wearables, TWS devices, and more. However, smartphones still are the company’s core products. At the beginning of the month, Realme introduced the highly-anticipated Realme 7 series in the form of Realme 7 and Realme 7 Pro. The devices were introduced in India, while a Realme 7i variant popped in Indonesia. The Realme numbered series brings a set of affordable smartphones with solid specifications, for instance, the Realme 7 Pro is one of the few smartphones in this price segment to offer 65W fast-charging.
Since their introduction, we knew that a European launch would be just a matter of time. Now, the reliable leakster @Sudhanshu1414 revealed that the Realme 7 and 7 Pro are coming soon for Europe. He also disclosed what are the possible price tags of these handsets. Last but not least, the Global variants will come with NFC support allowing cashless payment support.
Realme 7 and 7 Pro main features
Both smartphones come with punch-hole displays, however, the 7 has an LCD while the Pro brings an AMOLED panel. Curiously, due to the use of a cheaper LCD panel, the company can bump the Realme 7 refresh rate to 90Hz. Unfortunately, the 7 Pro is capped with a 60Hz refresh rate. Perhaps using a superior display would make this device too expensive. Under the hood, the standard version brings the gaming chipset Helio G95 SoC while the 7 Pro has a Snapdragon 720G chipset. Both handsets bring 64MP main cameras and 16MP selfie shooters.
The vanilla brings a huge 5000mAh battery with 30W fast-charging. The 7 Pro has a smaller battery with 4,500mAh capacity. However, it bumps the fast-charging support to a whopping 65W rate. The Indian versions lack NFC support, but the European versions will bring this feature.
While Realme is yet to disclose its plans for the 7 series in Europe, we can see they come in October.
