- Realme 7 and 7 Pro bring some top-of-the-line features including 65W charging.
- The Realme 7 Pro has an AMOLED display but you get an LCD on the Realme 7.
- Realme 7 and 7 Pro have the same set of cameras on their back.
Realme 7 and 7 Pro are official in India. Much like its prequels, the Realme 7 series smartphones look to shake up the mid-range market with some interesting feature that no other smartphone gives. Last time, Realme 6 and 6 Pro brought the elusive 90Hz refresh rate to the under Rs 20,000 segment. But this time, Realme is bringing the 65W fast charging to the segment with Realme 7 Pro. This technology has mostly been associated with high-end smartphones but Realme does not want you to pay so much for it.

Realme 7, 7 Pro Specifications
Most brands change a few things here and there, which are mostly very minute, to justify the price gap between two models under a series. But Realme is taking a different approach. Its two smartphones have stark differences between them that respect that Rs 5,000 price gap.
For what could be the biggest difference between the two is the fact that only Realme 7 Pro supports the USP feature of 65W fast charging. Realme 7, on the other hand, supports the toned-down 30W fast charging that we have seen before on budget smartphones, even. Realme wants to make its customers experience the top-level battery charging technology for under Rs 20,000 with the 7 Pro but if you cannot spend that much, 30W is good enough on the Realme 7. The Realme 7 Pro has a 4500mAh battery while the Realme 7 has a huge 5000mAh battery.
Realme 7 Pro brings an AMOLED display that is 6.4-inch in size while the Realme 7 has a 6.5-inch LCD. But the difference between them is that the Realme 7 has 90Hz refresh rate while the 7 Pro does not. This could be a deciding factor for many customers who would either go for a richer, more colourful AMOLED screen or would prefer smoothness on their phone screen at the expense of material. Realme's decision to ship two different materials for the display on the Realme 7 series is an educated one. It did run a poll to figure the people's viewpoints and people chose an AMOLED display with a low refresh rate over an LCD with a high refresh rate.
But since the materials are different, one feature that depends on OLED panels is there on Realme 7 Pro. You get an in-display fingerprint sensor on it but the Realme 7 has it mounted on the power button on the right side. Other than that, you get USB-C port on both smartphones, in addition to standard connectivity options such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 4G VoLTE.
The displays on both Realme 7 smartphones have punch-hole cut-outs that carry cameras inside them. The Realme 7 has a 16-megapixel front-facing camera but the Realme 7 Pro has a 32-megapixel selfie camera. On the back, there is a similarity between the sensors. Both Realme 7 and Realme 7 Pro feature a 64-megapixel primary Sony IMX682 primary sensor, an 8-megapixel ultrawide sensor with 119-degree field-of-view, a 2-megapixel macro sensor, and a 2-megapixel black and white sensor. The manner in which these cameras are aligned on the back is also the same on both Realme 7 and Realme 7 Pro, so there is hardly a difference between their designs.
And what could be the last major difference between the two smartphones is that Reale 7 Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 720G processor but the Realme 7 runs a new MediaTek Helio G95 processor. Now the Snapdragon 720G was used on the Realme 6 Pro so I am assuming there will not be much difference between their performances. However, the Realme 7 has a new processor that is essentially a souped-up version of the Helio G90 that Realme 6 was based on. I am not sure how big of a difference it will bring over Realme 6's performance and you will have to wait for my review to know that. Moreover, Realme 7 and Realme 7 Pro run Android 10-based Realme UI.
Realme has not said if it is launching 7 series in other markets but I guess Europe could be the next since India CEO Madhav Sheth now oversees Realme's European business, as well.
