Realme 7i is scheduled to launch on October 7 in India. Prior to its official unveiling, Realme’s Madhav Sheth shared the details of the smartphone and there appears to be no variation in the Indian version of the phone compared to its Indonesian version. The Realme 7i will be the third phone in the Realme 7 series which previously saw the launch of Realme 7 and Realme 7 Pro at a starting price of Rs 14,999 in India. Its specs indicate a lower price, somewhere between Rs 10,000 and Rs 14,000.
Sheth shared that the Realme 7i will have a 90Hz Ultra Smooth display, a 5000mAh battery, and a 2.0GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 processor. The version launched in Indonesia has the same specifications. It also shared the processor benchmark scores. The Realme 7i got a score of 185466, which the company claims is more than other entry-level processors.
In addition to the three specs, the Realme 7i will come with a 6.5-inch 720p LCD and 8GB of RAM. For storage, there will be 128GB, but you can add a microSD card if you want more space. Realme 7i will run the Android 10-based Realme UI. The company is set to launch the Android 11-based Realme 2.0 UI later this year, so we might see the update reach Realme 7i.
For photography, you have four cameras on the Realme 7i on the back. There is a 64-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel ultrawide camera, a 2-megapixel macro camera, and a 2-megapixel black and white camera. The whole setup is assisted by an LED flash on the back. The camera island design is like the one we have on the Realme 7. On the front, there is a 16 megapixel camera inserted into the punch hole. Finally, you can expect a 5000mAh battery with 18W fast charging.
The Indian price of the Realme 7i will be released next week but we have some projections, thanks to the Indonesian price. The one variant of the Realme 7i costs IDR 3,199,000, which translates to around Rs 15,800. But this will not be the price for Realme 7i as it exceeds that of Realme 7. Realme 7i is a scaled down version, which means it must cost less than what Realme 7 does. The price of Realme 7i should be in line with the cost of Realme 6i which is Rs 12,999.
