Realme have two separate launch events in the next few days, on the 1st of September there is the Realme X7 series launching in China, then two days later the new Realme 7 series launching in India.

Currently, there is no word on any phones for Europe or the UK. Realme had previously announced they would be attending IFA and launching something there, however, since July they have said nothing else about it.

The Realme 6 series launched globally earlier this year, so I would expect the new 7 series also to launch globally. The X7, with its MediaTek Dimensity chipset is less likely to see an international release.

We already know a lot about the Realme X7 models, and recently more leaks have come out about the more affordable 7 series. So how do they compare to the current 6-series?

Realme 7 Pro vs Realme X7

Based on the leaks and rumours, the likely scenario is that the Realme 7 Pro is identical to the Realme X7 which is set to launch in China on the 1st but with one big change. It will switch out the 5G Dimensity chipset with a more affordable 4G Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G.

Chipset – MediaTek Helio G95 may launch

The Realme will launch the new Realme 7 with a new chipset from MediaTek (as usual). The chipset is claimed to be the MediaTek Helio G95, no other specs have been mentioned, but you can bet it will be the same as the Helio G90T that is used on the Realme 6 but with higher frequencies. Realme CEO,  Madhav Sheth (MadhavSheth1), states they are launching a “World's 1st Processor to the masses. #realme7series” so this leak sounds accurate.

As for the Realme 7 Pro, that is believed to use the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G chipset as the Realme 7 Pro. Previously the Helio G90T outperformed the SD720G, so if these rumours are true, the Realme 7 will have a larger performance lead over the more expensive 7 Pro.

Display

It is expected that the Realme 7 Pro is getting upgraded to an OLED display with an under-display fingerprint reader, it is likely that this will be the same display that is used on the Realme X7-series.

The Realme 7 will likely use an LCD display with 90Hz refresh rate.

Camera

There is some conflicting information on the camera specification. Both phones will feature a 64MP primary camera, just like the previous generation. However Madhav Sheth they are “bringing the 2nd generation of this camera setup to #realme7Pro. It's not only a hardware update but will possibly be India's best 64MP Camera”

What is likely is that this is the same hardware, but they have updated the software processing.

Unfortunately, it then looks like the Pro model loses the telephoto that was found on the Realme 6 Pro, and will have the identical hardware set up as the Realme 6 and 7. This will be 64MP primary, 8MP ultrawide, then 2MP macro and 2MP depth.

Battery

Current rumours indicate that the Realme 7 Pro will have either a 4500mAh or 5000mAh battery then 65W charging.

The Realme 7 will have a slower 30W charge, and it is confirmed to have a 5000mAH battery

Both the Realme 6 models had 4300 mAh with 30W charging.
