- The smartphone could cost around Rs 12,999, the same what Realme 6i costs.
Realme 7i launch is set for October 7 in India. Ahead of its official unveiling, Realme's Madhav Sheth has shared details of the smartphone and it seems there is no variation in the Indian version of the phone from its Indonesian version. The Realme 7i will be the third phone in the Realme 7 series that has previously seen Realme 7 and Realme 7 Pro launching at a starting price of Rs 14,999 in India. Its specifications point at a lower price, somewhere between Rs 10,000 and Rs 14,000.
Sheth has shared that the Realme 7i will have a 90Hz Ultra Smooth Display, a 5000mAh battery, and a 2.0GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 processor. The version launched in Indonesia has the same specifications. He also shared the benchmark scores of the processor. The Realme 7i scored 185466, which the company claims, is more than other entry-level processors.
Besides the three specifications, the Realme 7i will arrive with a 6.5-inch 720p LCD and 8 gigs of RAM. For storage, there will be 128 gigs, but you can add a microSD card if you want more space. The Realme 7i will run Android 10-based Realme UI. The company is set to roll out the Android 11-based Realme UI 2.0 later this year, so we might see the update reaching the Realme 7i.
For photography, you get four cameras on the Realme 7i at the back. There is a 64-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel ultrawide camera, a 2-megapixel macro camera, and a 2-megapixel black-and-white camera. This entire setup is assisted by an LED flash at the back. The design of the camera island is like what we have on the Realme 7. On the front, you get a 16-megapixel camera packed inside the punch-hole. Finally, you can expect a 5000mAh battery with 18W fast charging.
The India price of the Realme 7i will be out next week but we have projections, thanks to the Indonesian pricing. The only variant of the Realme 7i costs IDR 3,199,000, which translates to roughly Rs 15,800. But this is not going to be the price for the Realme 7i since it exceeds that of Realme 7. Realme 7i is a trimmed-down version, meaning it must cost less than what Realme 7 does. The Realme 7i price is expected to be in line with Realme 6i cost that is Rs 12,999.
