Realme 7 Pro
Update 25. October 2020
We have now received the Realme 7 and Realme 7 Pro for a test report. You will then find a detailed test of both devices here. If you have any questions about the smartphones, please feel free to ask them in the comments.
Update 13. October 2020
The Realme 7 Pro is now over Amazon and on realme.com/eu can be pre-ordered. Realme wants to score not only with the hardware, but also with the support. Instead of a 2-year guarantee, Realme offers a 3-year guarantee on the smartphone. A replacement device is available free of charge for 2 months so that you don't sit on dry land during the repair.
Super AMOLED Display
Let's take a closer look at the Realme 7 Pro. The smartphone is available in the two colors “Mirror Blue” and “Mirror Silver”, as well as the special color “Sun Kissed Leather” (India only). The casing of the 160.9 x 74.3 x 8.7 mm smartphone, which weighs 182g, is characterized by a matte, shimmering surface that Realme itself describes as “Entrance to a Mirror Space”.
The front features a 6.4 inch Super AMOLED display with 2400 x 1080 pixel resolution. The screen-to-body ratio reaches 90.8 percent, so wide display edges are hardly significant. The NTSC color space is covered by 98 percent. The panel does not offer a particularly fast refresh rate. This is 60 images per second - mid-range. The Corning Gorilla Glass 5 display glass used offers protection against scratches and falls. There is an in-display fingerprint sensor under the display.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G
The built-in processor does not differ from the previous model, the Realme 6 Pro. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G system-on-chip is also installed, which combines, among other things, an Octa Core CPU and an Adreno 618 GPU. The chip manufactured in the 8nm process was presented in spring 2019. The cores of the CPU are divided into two fast Cortex-A76 cores with a maximum clock rate of 2.3 GHz and six Cortex-A55 energy-saving cores that clock with a reduced clock rate of 1.8 GHz. This is supported by an 8 GB LPDDR4X memory and a 128GB UFS2.1 data memory. The triple SIM slot enables two SIM cards and a microSD memory card to be used at the same time.
Further features of the system-on-chip are an X15 LTE modem that understands the usual mobile radio frequencies and bands in this country, support for dual-AC WLAN, as well as Bluetooth 5.1. An NFC module is not installed. The stereo speaker system with Dolby Atmos and Hi-Res audio support ensures a powerful sound. If you want to enjoy music or films via wired headphones, you can choose between USB-C and 3.5 mm jack.
Sony 64MP quad camera
In the previous models, Realme relied entirely on sensors from Samsung. Instead, the Realme 7 Pro opted for a 64 megapixel main camera from Sony. More precisely, a 64 megapixel Sony IMX682 image sensor is installed, which combines 2x2 adjacent pixels using so-called pixel binning, thus further improving the recording quality.
The other sensors are divided into an ultra-wide-angle camera with a 119 degree wide angle, a B&W sensor that ensures a clean bokeh effect when taking portraits, and a macro camera with a minimum focus distance of 4cm. The front camera has a resolution of 32 megapixels and is embedded in the display in a “punch-hole” style.
65 watt SuperDart fast charging function
The battery has a capacity of 4500 mAh. A special feature of the Realme 7 Pro is the 65 watt SuperDart fast charging technology, which charges the smartphone to 15 percent in just 50 minutes and to 34 percent in 100 minutes. Contactless charging is not supported.
IPS display with 90 Hz
The Realme 7 is the cheaper smartphone in the new Realme 7 Series. There are minor differences in the design. The Realme 7, measuring 162.3 x 75.4 x 9.4 mm and weighing 196.5g, is slightly larger and heavier than the Pro model. The smartphone is available in the colors “Mist White” and “Mist Blue”.
Instead of an AMOLED display, a 6.5 inch FHD + IPS panel (2400 x 1080 pixels) was chosen. The 90 Hz refresh rate ensures a particularly smooth display, which makes the smartphone especially interesting for gamers. The screen-to-body ratio reaches 90.5 percent. The screen protector is also of the Corning Gorilla Glass type. The fingerprint scanner is located on the side of the housing.
MediaTek Helio G95
The system-on-chip is the cutting-edge MediaTek Helio G95. The SoC, specially developed for mid-range gaming smartphones, consists of a quad core CPU (2x Cortex-A76 and 6x Cortex-A55) and an ARM Mali-G76 MC4 GPU. Realme prevents thermal throttling through a carbon fiber cooling system. In addition to 4G mobile communications, the chip supports fast dual-AC WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, Glonass and Galileo. NFC is available!
In contrast to the Realme 7 Pro, the Realme 7 is available in three memory variants. There is a choice of 4GB, 6GB or 8GB LPDDR4X RAM and 64GB or 128GB UFS2.1 data storage. The triple SIM slot can be equipped with two SIM cards and a microSD memory card.
48MP AI quad camera
Another difference to the Realme 7 Pro is the camera. The Realme 7 uses a 48 megapixel main sensor with f / 1.8 aperture. The rest of the sensors are identical to the Pro model. In the Realme 7, too, we have installed an ultra-wide-angle camera with 119 degrees wide-angle, a B&W sensor and a Macro camera. The sensor of the front camera is a Sony IMX 471, which has a resolution of 16 megapixels.
30 watt dart charge
The battery with 5000 mAh capacity can be quickly charged with up to 30 watts thanks to the Dart Charge. A full charge of 0-100 percent takes approximately 75 minutes.
Price and availability
The Realme 7 Pro will be available from October 13th at a price of 299 euros on realme.com and Amazon. The Realme 7 will be released on October 21, also on realme.com and Amazon. Prices start at 179 euros.
