- Realme will launch two new 5G smartphones in India today.
- The X7 5G and the X7 Pro 5G will bring big screens, capable cameras.
- The Realme X7 5G is going to be a rebranded V15 5G for India.
Realme X7 Pro 5G and X7 5G are set to be launched in India today. There will be a digital-only event that Realme will hold today to unveil the new 5G smartphones aimed at mid-end customers. These two handsets will mark the entry of Realme into the mid-range 5G phone market, and come almost a year after the company launched India's first 5G device, X50 Pro 5G back in February 2020. The X7 series for India is a little different for India because the vanilla model, X7 5G is a rebranded V15 5G from China instead of being similar to its Chinese counterpart. As such, there are some differences between the two phones with the same name. The X7 Pro 5G is, however, retained as-is.
The launch of the Realme X7 5G series will begin at 12.30 pm today. The live stream of the launch event will be available on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter so if you want to catch real-time updates, you can log in. Realme will detail the two phones during the event, explaining their features. Since both phones were announced in China last year already, we pretty much know everything related to specifications. But what we do not know is the pricing and the availability details. Realme will announce this information at the event today.
Realme X7 5G series price in India
A recent leak suggested the Realme X7 5G will start at Rs 19,999 in India but a tipster refuted this intel. He said the device might cost between Rs 17,000 and Rs 18,000. The latter seems more reasonable considering we are looking at the price of V15 5G in China instead of X7 5G. In China, the V15 5G costs CNY 1,499, which is roughly Rs 16,900, for the base variant while its top-end model is priced at CNY 1,999 (approximately Rs 22,500). On the other hand, the Realme X7 5G is priced at CNY 1,799 in China, which is roughly Rs 20,400, for the base variant.
The Realme X7 Pro 5G costs CNY 2,199 for the base variant, which translates to roughly Rs 24,900. The top-end variant costs CNY 3,199, which is approximately Rs 36,200.
