- Realme X7 Pro has been spotted on the company's support page.
- Realme X7 Pro is powered by MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ processor.
- MediaTek launched the processor in India sometime back.
Realme India boss Madhav Sheth had previously confirmed the Realme X7 series will launch in India next year. He did not share when that would happen exactly. Now amid the speculation that X7 series could arrive in January, the top-end model X7 Pro has been spotted on the company website in India. This necessarily means the X7 Pro is ready for launch in India. Realme could pick a date in early January if it has already got the smartphone certified but when the X7 series is launching is still unknown.
As reported by MySmartPrice, the Realme X7 Pro was briefly listed on the support page of Realme India. The support page is usually meant to help users troubleshoot various issues their device is facing. This strongly hints at an imminent launch of the X7 Pro smartphone in India but I do not have a concrete date to tell you at this point. Sheth confirmed only that the launch will take place sometime in 2021 but nothing else beyond that. Some days later, the Realme X7 bagged the BIS certification, confirming the launch is imminent in India.
Realme's bet on 5G in India
Realme X7 and X7 Pro were launched in China earlier this year as the low-budget 5G smartphones. The company now wants to bring these two devices to India to sort of widen the portfolio. Realme was the first brand to launch a 5G phone, the X50 Pro 5G, in India in February this year. And now, with X7 and X7 Pro, the Oppo offshoot is planning to democratise the next-generation wireless technology, even though it is still at least six months far from the launch.
Realme X7 and X7 Pro are powered by MediaTek Dimensity chipsets that are currently among the affordable processors that bring 5G onboard. MediaTek recently announced the launch of Dimensity 1000+ chipset in India, making way for X7 Pro to enter in India. The reason why that is because the chipset has to support carriers and other certain things for the smartphone to work properly in a country. Also, now that the chipset is official in India, other smartphone brands will find it easy to launch their Dimensity 1000+ powered products here.
