- Realme X7 and X7 Pro bring 120Hz AMOLED displays and 5G support.
- Both smartphones have a 64-megapixel primary camera and a 32-megapixel selfie camera.
- Realme X7 and X7 Pro have been launched for the Chinese market only.
Realme X7 and X7 Pro have gone official in China on the first day of September. The latest X-series from the Oppo offshoot brings a horde of new features but mostly rely on those popular among customers. Realme X7 and X7 Pro bring the sub-6GHz 5G, although with the help of different processors by MediaTek. The two smartphones also double down on the new camera design that Realme introduced with the Realme V5 a few weeks back. Rumours are rife that the X7 series will debut as the 7-series in India but their specifications and design are proving them to be totally different from each other.
The Realme X7 is the vanilla smartphone while the X7 Pro is a little advanced in terms of specifications. But despite their hierarchy, the X7 and X7 Pro have similarities in key areas. Both have the 65W fast charging for their battery and have 120Hz displays. Realme introduced the 120Hz refresh rate of the X3 SuperZoom that was launched recently in India and elsewhere. Anyway, similarities between the X7 and X7 Pro do not end here; they both share the same 64-megapixel primary camera and selfie camera, as well.
