Realme has announced that it will launch two new devices in its home market – China – on September 1, 2020. Both these handsets are part of the brand new Realme X7 Series and are known as the Realme X7 and the Realme X7 Pro. The confirmation of the launch came from none other than Realme’s official Weibo account, which confirmed that both these handsets would be announced at a launch event at 2 PM China time on September 1. Realme also released launch posters announcing some of the key features of the phone. Before reading further, take a look at the launch posters below.
As evident from the images above, we know that both the Realme X7 series devices will feature an AMOLED display with support for 120Hz refresh rate. The Weibo post also adds that both these handsets will feature flagship-grade specifications, and the design USP will be the fact that both of them shall be thin and lightweight devices. Another key feature that gets a mention in the launch poster is support for 5G networks. The rest of the features remain under wraps for now. While not confirmed yet, the Realme X7 and the X7 Pro could have shown up as the Realme RMX2176 and the RMX2121 on certification platforms previously.
The official confirmation was followed by another post by Realme’s Chinese VP confirming that both these handsets are part of a completely new lineup of products – thereby implying that the new X7 series are not successors to the existing lineup of Realme X2 and Realme X3 series of devices. It is in this post that he implies that with the launch of the Realme X7 series, the company is in the process of simplifying its product lineup and that going forward, there shall be a clear demarcation among products with separate focus areas. He also went on to confirm that the Realme X7 series will feature a completely new design language. Take a look at his (translated) post below.
Nevertheless, with just a few days left for the official announcement, we should get additional info surrounding both these handsets in the next few days. As of now, there is no word if these two phones will make it to India. Going by Realme’s recent history, chances are high it will. Keep watching this space!
