- The Realme 7 series will launch in Europe in October.
- Both the Realme 7 and Realme 7 Pro will be offered initially in the UK.
- There is one big tweak to the Realme 7 to be aware of, though.
After launching in India earlier this month, the Realme 7 series is heading to Europe. The brand’s two mid-range players – namely the Realme 7 and Realme 7 Pro – will enter the UK market in October with some notable differences between the two, and their Indian counterparts.
Starting with the Realme 7, the Mediatek Helio G95 chipset is retained from the Indian launch version, with the 6.5-inch 90Hz refresh rate LCD also making a return. The phone’s 5,000mAh battery can be topped up using Realme’s 30W Dart Charge system. But the big change comes to the camera department.
While the Realme 7 in India packs a 64MP primary camera on its back, the version heading to the UK features a 48MP sensor. The reason for the tweak isn’t immediately apparent, but it may be a bid from Realme to better differentiate the 7 and 7 Pro.
The European Realme 7 Pro retains the 64MP IMX682 primary camera and also packs a 32MP selfie snapper. Both are carried over from the Indian launch version. Also reprising their roles on the 7 Pro is a 6.4-inch OLED display, a Snapdragon 720G chipset, and a 4,500mAh battery with 65W SuperDart Charge. The latter is said to top up the battery in 34 minutes.
Beyond the specs snapshot Realme provided, it’s unclear what else the brand may have tweaked for European audiences. We expect an 8MP ultra-wide, 2MP monochrome, and 2MP macro camera to supplement the primary snappers on both phones. It’s also likely that both will retain their headphone jacks, Wi-Fi 5 capabilities, and Bluetooth 5 support.
Realme will confirm further details of both phones during a virtual event on October 7 at 9:30 AM GMT (5:30 AM ET). Expect pricing and availability details to follow.
