The Realme 7 series was launched early September so there is nothing particularly new to announce about the phones themselves.
However, next week on the 7th of October, they will officially launch.
I was a big fan of the Realme 6 series, with the Realme 6 offering incredible value for money with the powerful Helio G90T.
Realme 6 vs Realme 7
The 7 series isn’t a massive upgrade, it has only been 6 months since the last phones were launched. However the Realme 7 brings with it a brand new chipset switching to the Helio G95 offering a minor bump in performance from the previous model.
Realme 6 Pro vs Realme 7 Pro
The Realme 7 Pro has had some interesting changes, the chipset remains the same and they have dropped the telephoto lens. However, they have switched to an AMOLED display and bumped up the charging speed to 65W.
Pricing vs Pixel 4A
There is no official word on the price of the Realme 7 series, that’s what we will find out on the launch day.
However, we can assume it will be similar to the previous models.
The Realme 6 launched at £219 with 4GB/64GB
The Realme 6 Pro launched at £299
Amazon has a listed for the 7 Pro with 8/128Gb for £279. There is no stock so this is likely a placeholder page prior to launch and the price may change.
For comparison, the popular £349
