The Realme 7 line arrived last October constituted as two models, one of them with the surname Pro. Both the Realme 7 and the Realme 7 Pro debuted and are already on sale, but now the brand has decided to go one step further There, changing the brain of the first and providing it with 5G connectivity. This is how it is born the new Realme 7 5G.
The new phone no longer opts for a processor from the Helio line as was the G95 but instead makes the leap to the Dimensity family, specifically with a Dimensity 800U offering 5G both SA and NSA, in addition to DSS technology to make better use of available bandwidth. Let’s see what other features the brand’s new phone offers.

The Realme 7 bets on the LCD
We stumbled upon a 6.5-inch screen on this Realme 7 5G, one with LCD technology and that refreshes to nothing more and nothing less than 120Hz, an increasingly dissociated feature of the ‘gaming’ niche. The touch refresh, meanwhile, refreshes at 180Hz so we will have great precision when interacting with it. In addition, it comes protected by Gorilla Glass, although the manufacturer does not specify which generation we are talking about.
The panel has a 20: 9 ratio and has FullHD + resolution, which means that we have 2,400 x 1,080 pixels in front of our eyes with a maximum brightness of 480 nits. Realme emphasizes that its screen takes advantage of the front by 90.5% thanks to its design with reduced frames. The phone software also controls the screen, so we have an adaptive refresh rate that is automatically modified based on the content we are watching.
We changed Helio for Dimensity and the Realme 7 may already have a 5G surname
The processor chosen by Realme for its new Realme 7 5G is the Dimensity 800U from MediaTek, with its corresponding Mali-G73 GPU with three rendering cores, supported by two options of RAM and one of internal memory, which gives rise to two models : 6GB / 128GB and 8GB / 128GB. Both can be expanded with a microSD that cannot exceed 256GB of maximum capacity. RAM is LPDDR4X while storage is UFS 2.1.
Under all this heart, the Realme 7 5G hides an internal and non-removable battery of 5,000 mAh that enjoys fast charging, in this case 30W thanks to Dart technology from the oriental manufacturer. The battery is charged through the USB Type-C port and the 30W charger is included in the phone box. In connectivity we have the aforementioned 5G (SA / NSA) in addition to WiFi 5, Bluetooth 5.1, GPS, NFC and a headphone port. The fingerprint reader is located on the side.
Four cameras and a front with classic configuration
We land in the photographic section and we run into a fairly classic configuration at this point, although the manufacturers play with the figures. We have a main wide angle camera, a super wide angle next to it, a macro focus camera and another camera with a monochrome sensor. Together they will also produce a bokeh effect and 4K video can be recorded at 30 frames per second.
Entering the chambers one by one, the main one is from 48 megapixels and it has a 6P lens with f / 1.8 aperture sewn on. The sensor, by the way, is a Samsung S5KGM1ST at 1 / 1.73 inches in size. For the secondary, the super wide angle, Realme mounts a sensor of 8 megapixels with 5P lens with f / 2.3 aperture. It has a 119º angle of view, by the way.
48 megapixels in front of the rear gear with a super wide angle, a macro and a monochrome
We get to the last two rear cameras and here we have a 2 megapixel couple, the two with 3P lenses with aperture f / 2.4. The macro lens is capable of focusing at 2.4 centimeters. As for the front camera, 16 megapixels with 5P f / 2.1 lens and a 79.3º angle of view.
To close, in the software we have portrait mode, time-lapse, panoramic mode, a motorized beauty mode with artificial intelligence in addition to a night mode called Super Nightscape. We will have video in slow motion as well although we can only go down to 60fps in 720p resolution.
Versions and prices of the Realme 7 5G
As we have commented, the Realme 7 5G lands in Spain in two versions of RAM and one of internal storage, producing two models for sale, both the 6GB of RAM with 128GB of internal space and the superior model, with 8GB of RAM. The official price set for the base model is 279 euros, although it will be sold at 229 euros (from November 27 to 30) in a promotional way for Black Friday.
