Realme X7 Max 5G with 64-megapixel cameras launched, starts at Rs 26,999

Realme has launched a new 5G phone in India and it brings MediaTek's highest-end Dimensity 1200 processor inside.

Realme X7 Max 5G is the latest smartphone from the company to add to the flurry of 5G phones in India. At its online event, Realme launched the X7 Max 5G as India's first Dimensity 1200-powered smartphone. This chipset is not a match for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, but it can take on some slightly lower chipsets, such as the Snapdragon 870. And that is something that is going to be enough for most customers. Realme X7 Max 5G will theoretically offer a premium experience without having to spend that kind of money.

Alongside the X7 Max 5G, Realme also launched the new smart televisions. The Realme Smart 4K TVs now come with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos standards for streaming apps, such as Netflix and Disney+ Hotstar. With people staying more at their homes, the sales of large-screen devices have spurred and Realme is cashing in on that demand. Realme told me that its new televisions are much better in terms of picture quality, but one thing that may attract customers is the hands-free voice-activated operation, thanks to microphones on the TVs.

Realme X7 Max 5G price in India

Realme X7 Max 5G price in India is Rs 26,999 for the 8GB RAM and 128GB storage option and Rs 29,999 for the 12GB RAM and 256GB storage model. The phone comes in Asteroid Black, Mercury Silver, and Milky Way colour options. The first sale of the Realme X7 Max 5G starts at noon on June 4 on Flipkart and the Realme online store.

Realme X7 Max 5G specifications

The Realme X7 Max 5G is rebranded GT Neo if you take a look at the specifications. It has the same MediaTek Dimensity 1200 processor powering it, along with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard memory. Yes, the 6GB RAM option has not arrived in India. The X7 Max 5G uses a 6.43-inch full-HD+ Super AMOLED display with support for up to a 120Hz refresh rate. There are thin bezels all around the screen. It runs Android 11-based Realme UI 2.0.

The focus of the Realme X7 Max 5G is on cameras. Apart from the main 64-megapixel Sony IMX682 sensor, you have an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor and a 2-megapixel macro sensor on the back. Realme is no longer packing four cameras on its expensive phones, and it makes sense. The three sensors work in tandem with the improved camera app, Realme said. For selfies, the Realme X7 Max 5G brings a 16-megapixel camera inside the punch-hole on the display.

The Realme X7 Max 5G has 5G connectivity on both SIM card slots, which the company said will support the bandwidth that will go live in India during the 5G rollout.
