realme Philippines, the lifestyle partner of the youth, has officially announced that they will be launching the company’s newest smartphone, the realme 7 and realme 7 Pro.

We recently got the chance to test out the new realme 7 and here’s our first impression on yet again another amazing product from realme. Inside the realme 7 is the world’s first MediaTek Helio G95 processor, making the device one of the most powerful smartphones in gaming and entertainment at its price point.

It also has a 5000mAh battery with a 30W Dart Charger, providing over more than a month of standby period and lightning charging speed. Aside from that the new realme 7 boasts a 64 megapixel quad-lens rear camera setup featuring the Sony IMX682 sensor and 90Hz ultra-smooth display.realme 7

Build Quality/Design

The realme 7 sports a new split design which asymmetrically divides the back into colours that run in opposite directions. It also has an anti-glare coating on top for a more smooth matte finish that doesn’t attract a lot of fingerprints. Like most of the realme smartphones we reviewed, it still uses polycarbonate plastic while the front panel is protected by Gorilla Glass 3 for scratch protection.

On the right side of the realme 7, we have a side-mounted fingerprint sensor that is embedded within the power button and, on the left side is where you will find the volume rocker and the SIM tray. The bottom boasts of a 3.5mm jack along with a USB Type-C port and the loudspeaker grille.

The realme 7 has a 6.5 inch LCD panel with a Full HD+ (20:9) resolution. Unlike other smartphones in this segment, the realme 7 offers a 90Hz ultra-smooth display. On top of the display is a punch-hole cutout which houses the 16 megapixel front camera. Powering this device is a massive 5,000mAh which is aided by a 30W fast-charger in the box.

Overall, the new realme 7 is a great value for money in the mid-range level smartphone. The phone is powerful enough to handle multitasking and some gaming as well. As a matter of fact, I’ve been playing call of duty on this phone for 2 weeks now and I really like how it performed. I’ll talk more about that in my full review of this new device.


The realme 7 comes with the company’s signature bright yellow packaging with the big “7” model printed on the front of the box and a small realme logo at the lower portion of the box. Inside the box, you will find the realme 7 handset, 30W Dart charger, USB Type-A to USB Type-C data/charging cable, transparent silicone case, paper documentations and the SIM ejector tool. Unfortunately, the realme 7 doesn’t have earphones in the box, you have to buy it separately.

In front, it uses a 16 megapixel selfie shooter. The camera app on the realme 7 also features enhanced Starry Mode, and exclusive filters feature.
