Realme 7 5G has been launched by Realme at a virtual event in the UK. The new Realme phone was originally speculated to be a rebadged Realme V5 that was launched in China in August. However, to bring some distinction, Realme 7 5G comes with an octa-core MediaTek Dimensity 800U SoC that is an upgrade over the MediaTek Dimensity 720 SoC powering Realme V5. The new smartphone also comes with a 120Hz display. Realme 7 5G also features quad rear cameras and offers a hole-punch display design. It comes as an upgrade to Realme 7, Realme 7 Pro, and Realme 7i that were launched by the Chinese company in September. Realme 7 5G is also touted to be the first in its price range to offer dual-5G connectivity.
Realme 7 5G price has been set at GBP 279 (roughly Rs. 27,400) in the UK for the sole 6GB + 128GB storage variant. The smartphone comes in a Baltic Blue colour option and will be available for purchase in the UK starting November 27. It will go on sale through Amazon UK at a discounted price of GBP 229 (roughly Rs. 22,500) until November 30 under a Black Friday Special deal.
Details about the debut of Realme 7 5G in markets other than the UK are yet to be revealed.
