Realme 7i unveiled with Snapdragon 662 and a 64MP quad-camera setup

Earlier this month, Realme teased the Realme 7i in Indonesia. The company has now launched the device, making it the third member of the Realme 7 lineup, and it’s the cheapest of the three. Let’s check out the specs, expected price, and availability of Realme 7i in Nepal.

Realme 7i Overview

Realme 7i was first teased by Realme Indonesia. The device will be launched in the country alongside Realme 7 later this month. Realme 5i was the first device under the Realme 5 series with an “i” suffix and was launched in January 2020. The 7i is the third i-suffixed device from Realme in the last nine months.

Design and Display

Like the Realme 7, the new 7i also features a 6.5-inch LCD display. The major highlight of the display here is the support for the 90Hz refresh rate. However, don’t expect Realme 7i’s panel to perform in the level of a higher-priced phone like the Realme 7, as it comes with HD+ resolutions. One may argue that Realme should have bumped the resolution as well but the new refresh rate is still an upgrade compared to Realme 6i’s screen. The device features a circular cut-out on the top left corner to house the selfie camera.

At the back, one can notice the quad-camera setup enclosed inside the rectangular module. The mirror design on the rear panel of the device is said to be inspired by the North Pole.

Performance and Memory

Realme 7i is more of a cheap alternative to Realme 7 than an upgrade to the 6i. That is why Realme has included Snapdragon 662 instead of Helio G90T/ G95. With this, Relame 7i is closer to the Realme 5i in terms of performance. Snapdragon 665 used in the 5i is almost similar to SD 662 except for some minor differences.

However, it does not rule out the possibility that there would be another variant of Realme 7i with Helio G95. Like with the 5 series, Realme can launch the SD 662 variant under the Narzo series and announce a G95 variant exclusively for the Indian and European markets.

Camera

On paper, the rear camera setup looks similar to that of Realme 7. It has a 64MP primary camera (f/1.8) with PDAF. It is accompanied by an 8MP ultra-wide camera (f/2.4) offering up to a 119-degree Field of View. The quad-camera setup is completed by a 2MP monochrome portrait lens and a 2MP macro lens (4cm).

Realme 7i Camera Specs

On the front, Realme has included the 16MP Sony IMX471 sensor with f/2.1 aperture. While the rear camera setup supports UIS Max Video stabilization, the front camera only supports UIS Video Stabilization.

Rest of the Specs

Realme 7i features a massive battery of 5,000mAh. An 18W fast charger (9V/2A) will be included in the box. The device supports dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0. There is a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor for biometrics.
