Realme was planning to launch a new smartphone dubbed Realme X7 Max in the beginning of this month. However, the company had to change its plans due to the COVID-19 second wave in the country. After some weeks of delay, the company will finally unveil the new smartphone this Monday, May 31 st. To sweeten the deal, Realme revealed that users pre-ordering the smartphone will get a freebie along with it. In addition, the company’s CEO Madhav Sheth revealed that the new smartphone will offer support for 7 5G bands in total. It will be one of the smartphones with the widest 5G coverage. However, this does not mean much for India, at least no in 2021.
Realme X7 Max 5G pre-orders will give you free Realme Buds Q
Are you in a need of a good smartphone and a good pair of TWS earbuds? Well, Realme announced that users pre-ordering Realme X7 Max will get Realme Buds Q worth INR 1,999 for free. The pre-order will go live shortly after the announcement in Monday. Anyone who pre-orders the device will be eligible to get Realme Buds Q for free on June 3.

The free TWS earbuds aside, the company’s CEO took it to Twitter to announce that the upcoming Relame X7 Max 5G will feature 7 5G bands in total. This will make it the smartphone to support the most number of 5G bands in the segment. Interestingly, the Realme GT Neo 5G also supports 7 5G bands in total. This corroborating with the rumors that the X7 Max is a rebranded Realme GT Neo 5G.
Our objectives for 2021 include becoming #LeaderOf5G & enabling users to experience the latest processors with enhanced 360° performance. Keeping this in mind we ensured that the upcoming #realmeX7Max5G supports 7 5G-bands so our users can be future-ready with 5G and #realme.

So far, only devices in the premium mid-range or flagship segment have such an amount of 5G bands. 5G is yet to be deployed in India, but once it becomes available, the Realme X7 Max 5G will become a strong contender in this niche.
