The Realme X7 Pro is the company’s top-end handset launched in September 2020 in Thailand. Initially, it was available in China after its release in December, but now it is available globally. At the price of $570 or €465, it takes up the closeness of Samsung Galaxy M51 and OnePlus Nord. For those snooping, the Realme X7 Pro isn’t made-up to be a descendant of the Realme X3 family.  However, a surprise of a totally latest series expects to showcase “the very first-class handset from Realme.”

The Realme X7 Pro is among the latest smartphones that land with the MediaTek Dimensity 1000 plus processor. Though, it is definitely marking the beginning of a novel series of reasonable 5G flagships. Likewise, the Realme X7 is the earliest handset that comes up with the Density 800U chipset. Though our original impressions are encouraging, this processor would discriminate between Realme X7 Pro and the rivals.

Quick Review

On top of that, it looks to make the grade that one would imagine from a handset in this section. The Realme X7 Pro comes with a large battery with custom-changing 65W fast charging, stereophonic speakers. It also offers a multipurpose set of snappers and a top-end 120Hz and great AMOLED screen. The one thing that annoyed us constantly is the absence of an earphone jack and micro SD card support.

You may not like that the Realme X7 Pro still operates on Android 10 software. Though many top-end handsets now come with the latest Android 11.  The Realme X7 Pro offers a variety of storage and RAM capacity but depends on its availability in the stores. However, it comes with 6GB or 8GB RAM with 128GB or 256GB storage with a price tag of $570 or €465. It is also available in online stores in two color variants Mystic Black and Fantasy.

Realme X7 Pro Design

A prime impression is the last impression, and this caption is too relevant to the Realme X7 Pro here. The latest diverging design of the Realme X7 Pro sticks out from the troop. It is obtainable in two color choices: Fantasy and Mystic Black variants. We are presently reviewing the Fantasy model, and we totally like it. We have seen loads of rear gradient designs for many years. For me, the Pacific Sunrise model of Xiaomi Mi 10i was my beloved gradient texture up till now. Though, it seems like I may offer this title to Realme’s Fantasy in the upcoming days.

The color is amazing, though, and every angle you guise in offers you an exclusive look at the handset. If the light strikes on the handset straightly, you will view an ‘Instagram’ app-like shades on the rear. On top of that, here is a large ‘Dare to Leap’ motif printed vertically on the back, which truly looks amazing. For those who don’t want any gradient and printed label, the Black model lands with a simple plain texture.

The rear of the Realme X7 Pro shows a dual gradient, dual coated with a single sheet of the anti-glare glass protector. The handset’s rear turns flawlessly and composites into the frame of the handset to give an outstanding in-hand feel. However, it is quite noticeable that the Realme X7 Pro is a magnetic fingerprint, and you have to put too much effort into keeping the handset clean before taking a snap. Realme is also giving an apparent case that we endorse to use. The company has also detached the 3.5mm earphone jack.

Moreover, the power key locates on the right flank and is definitely reachable. The volume buttons are present on the left one of the handset and are also easy to reach. These buttons are easy to click and receptive to. On the upper side, you will find a microphone. You will get the Type-C port, loud hailer out, a SIM slot, and a secondary mic on the bottom side. While going towards the rear side, you get a Quad-snapper set up together with an LED flash. The module comes with a reasonable amount of projection. On the front of the handset, you find a Full HD plus AMOLED screen.

A blow-hole pattern for selfie snapper is present on the corner of the top display. The display also offers an earpiece at the middle that also doubles over as a stereophonic speaker. Generally, the Realme X7 Pro is certainly one of the lightweight handsets we have used today. It weighs 184g which is so light than other top-ends. This phone feels too great to hold in hands. Among the OnePlus Nord, Galaxy M51, and Mi 10i, these handset secures the second rank when it goes to trimness as the Realme X7 Pro is somewhat larger than the OnePlus Nord.

Display

The Realme X7 Pro comes with a larger display of 6.55 inches with Full HD plus display. Here you will get a Samsung E3 AMOLED pane that offers you a 120Hz of screen refresh rate. It also offers you a 240Hz touch testing rate. The display here is a 2.5D warped glass with a 91.6% display-to-frame ratio. It has a blow-hole pattern on the left corner, which keeps the selfie snapper. Another title goes to Realme X7 Pro, the cheapest handset with an AMOLED screen and a 120Hz blend.

The Realme X7 Pro offers the maximum intensity of 800 nits and 1200nits top. For the display protection, here is a sheet of Corning Gorilla Glass 5. To control the dim brightness conditions, the company has included a DC darkening spec. Actually, this mode reduces the display trembling during dim intensity setups. On top of that, the pane is Widevine L1 qualified to run HD content and HDR10 proficient.

The display on the Realme X7 Pro yields vivacious colors and details together with sharpness making the watching experience more pleasant. The higher screen refresh rate of 120Hz together with the AMOLED pane is a paucity in this section. Though, the Realme has made it thinkable in 2021. The 120Hz refresh rate makes scrolling and swapping more smooth across the UI. There’s also a responsive fingerprint sensor that runs precisely without any problem.

Performance of Realme X7 Pro

Things become fascinating here with the addition of the MediaTek Dimesity range processor. The Realme X7 Pro motorizes with the Density 1000 plus chipset. It is an Octa-Core chipset erected on a 7nm building process and has a timer speed of 2.6 GHz. It is a 5G proficient processor. We don’t yet have a user-equipped 5G network, so it’s a next-generation technology that Realme is heaping on. The Realme X7 Pro also offers NFC aboard. The stereophonic-speaker system aboard is first-rate and gets quite loud, and makes watching content more pleasurable.

Additionally, the X7 Pro arrives in different conformations in the case of RAM and Storage. It offers 6GB or 8GB RAM and internal storage of 128GB/256GB. Here is a disappointing factor that Realme X7 Pro offers. The handset does not offer a storage extension as it lacks the microSD card slot. Therefore, you are just bound to 111GB of inner storage. Realme X7 Pro also lands with a vapour chilling system. This setup keeps the temperature of the handset under control. In our restricted time with the handset, the handset’s enactment was all-in-one without any pause or overheating. It did not show any other problem, even while gaming and multitasking.

Realme X7 Pro Cameras

Cameras have constantly been a solid feature of Realme handsets. The Realme X7 Pro possesses a Rear Quad-camera format with a 64MP Sony IMX 686 lens with an f/1.7 gap. This main snapper joins with an 8MP (f/2.25) ultra-wide lens, 2MP macro snapper, and 2MP Black & White portrait camera. For the selfies, here comes a 32MP blow-hole front camera on the top corner of the display.  The Sony IMX 686 main lens looks very capable and proficient in working. The photos taken from the main camera appeared fantastic. The selfie snapper is also good for taking selfies and recording videos as well. We must say that camera in Realme X7 is decent for the price.

Software

Realme X7 Pro operates on Realme User Interface1.0 that is still built on Android 10, which is frustrating. The company will crush out Android 11 in the upcoming weeks. However, there is no precise date up till now. We did not feel any problem with the User Interface during the analysis time. Moreover, the handset also offers an Always-on display mode, but it is not re-adjustable. However, the Android 11 upgrade should take that choice.

Battery Life

This is one section where Realme has taken an irrefutable lead over its competitors. The Realme X7 Pro stores in a 4,500mAh battery module that can be stated above mediocre in 2021. Realme has shoved in 65W Super-fast Dart charging haste when it goes to the charging capability. It permits you to charge the phone in just 40 minutes. The battery life is quite usual in our inadequate time. We presently have about 4 hours to over 5 hours of battery life with one charge only. Because of the crazy quick charging, the phones charge from 5 to 100% in 40 minutes only. So you can get your fully charged handset in less than an hour. It gives you more than 50% juice in just 15 minutes.
