Sheth earlier this week conducted a poll on Twitter to understand whether his followers want an in-display fingerprint sensor or a side-mounted sensor. That poll received a mandate for the former option.
Apart from the indication of the in-display fingerprint sensor, details about the Realme 7 series are bleak at this moment. The rumour mill also doesn't have much to help us help us understand what all would be there on the new models.
Having said that, the Realme 7 series is set to debut as the successors to the Realme 6 series, which comprises the Realme 6 and Realme 6 Pro that both were launched in India in March. The new models are also speculated to be different from the Realme X7 and Realme X7 Pro that are launching in China on September 1.
