Realme 7 5G will be launched on November 19 in the UK at a virtual event. The company announced the details through its Realme UK Twitter handle, along with a poster that shows the front of the phone. The Realme 7 series currently includes Realme 7, Realme 7 Pro, and Realme 7i. None of the models support 5G connectivity. As of now, the company has not shared details about Realme 7 5G but a recent tip suggested that it may be a rebadged Realme V5.
Realme UK tweeted that Realme 7 5G will be launched on November 19 at 10am GMT (3:30pm IST) at a virtual event that will be livestreamed on the company's social media channels including Twitter and Facebook, as well as on YouTube.
While the company has not shared pricing details for Realme 7 5G yet, a recent leak hints at a CNY 1,499 (roughly Rs. 17,000) price tag for the 6GB + 128GB storage variant and CNY 1,899 (roughly Rs. 21,400) for the 8GB + 128GB storage version. While this is the China pricing for the phone, it does give some idea of what the price range for Realme 7 5G could be.
A Realme phone with model number RMX2111, believed to be Realme 7 5G, was recently spotted on NBTC website. This model number was originally associated with Realme V5, suggesting that Realme 7 5G will be a rebadged Realme V5 that launched in China in August. The leaked specifications for Realme 7 5G further bolster this claim.
Realme 7 5G is said to feature a 6.5-inch display with 90Hz refresh rate and a hole-punch design. It may be powered by the octa-core MediaTek Dimensity 720 SoC. The phone may come with quad rear cameras that include a 48-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel secondary sensor, along with two other 2-megapixel sensors. At the front, Realme 7 5G may come with a 16-megapixel selfie camera. The smartphone is expected to pack a 5,000mAh battery with support for 30W fast charging, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
