realme 7 5G officially launched in Malaysia, with remarkable smartphone performance


WHEN it comes to smartphones, basic functions and built-in cameras aren’t enough. However it is a massive let-down when their performances do not match up to their price points either.

It is important for users to understand what are the main specifications to look for in a smartphone in order to make a well-informed decision.

Officially launched on 17 December, the specifications offered by the realme 7 5G impresses both avid smartphone users and mobile gamers alike.

With a variety of advanced features, realme 7 5G can be categorised as a mid-range device that is comparable to other top-notch smartphones.

5G processor chip 

realme 7 5G is the first ever device in Malaysia to be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 800U 5G 7nm processor chip, which is in line with 5G technology.

The MediaTek Dimensity 800U processing chip has scored an impressive figure of around 340,000 points for the AnTuTu benchmark. It is much more powerful against its equivalent, the Snapdragon 765 processor, which only scored 291,577 points for the AnTuTu test.

realme 7 5G delivers the best mobile gaming experience for its users without any restrictions and interruptions, due to its 5G chipset. This processor chip also consists of two high-performance Cortex-A76 cores at 2.4 GHz and six Cortex-A55 cores up to 2GHz, with a Mali-G57 graphics processing unit (GPU).

Compared to the Dimensity 700 processor, realme 7 5G’s processor allows application launch to be 1.4x faster. With a faster performance recorded at 11% for CPU benchmark and 28% for GPU benchmark, this makes realme 7 5G a highly-efficient device.


realme 7 5G also supports 5G+5G Dual Sim Dual Standby (DSDS) technology. This means that realme 7 5G supports 5G networks on both SIMs for high speed Internet on-the-go.

Thus far, realme 7 5G is the first smartphone to support such technology within its class. Plus, it also supports 5G-CA (2CC 5G Carrier Aggregation) which ensures higher stability for phone calls.

With all these features boasted by realme 7 5G, it promises users the fastest and comprehensive 5G technology experience, regardless of your chosen telecommunication network provider.

5G is the fifth generation of wireless connection technology. In other words, users will enjoy high-speed Internet which is faster compared to 4G.

Although 4G networks are sufficient, the emergence of 5G is opportune to fulfil the demands new technology brings. However, keeping in mind that 5G technology is not ready to be offered to the general public, realme 7 5G also offers support for 2G, 3G and 4G coverage.

120 Hz ultra smooth display

Besides being used as a means for communication, realme 7 5G is also categorised as an ideal mobile gaming device. To belong in this category, the screen panel must have a high refresh rate between 90Hz to 120Hz.

realme 7 5G comes with a 120Hz screen panel, and it is capable of producing 120 frames per second or about 100% more than the 60Hz display screen that is still being used by other smartphone manufacturers in the market.

The display screen is also equipped with a 180Hz touch sampling rate, which ensures that any input on the screen gets an immediate response, especially while users are playing mobile games.

This device also comes with a display screen measuring 6.5 inches, FHD+ resolution (2400 x 1080) and a compact design, which ensures ultimate user experience.

If that isn’t enough, realme 7 5G is also equipped with a system which automatically changes the screen’s refresh rate according to the usage, providing optimum visual experience and saving battery life.

Fast charging with large battery

realme 7 5G comes with a 5,000mAh battery. With such a large battery, users can enjoy using this device for a longer period of time. It can last up to 35 hours for regular calls, 17 hours for YouTube, 103 hours of listening to online music, and 19 hours of WhatsApp.

The battery life of this device depends on its usage as well. However, it recharges fairly quickly, as the realme 7 5G is equipped with 30W Dart Charge for fast charging. To reach 50%, it only takes a mere 26 minutes, while a full charge takes only 65 minutes. 

Great camera setup

On top of its amazing performance capabilities, the realme 7 5G also has a great camera setup.

It comes with a 48 megapixel (MP) primary camera, 8MP ultrawide camera, 2MP macro camera and a 2MP B&W portrait camera. It also comes with a 16MP front camera.

Other specifications include a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, 5G dual-SIM support, Android 10, 3.5 millimeter (mm) audio jack and a USB-C port connection.

The device also comes with 8GB and 128GB of storage, along with a hybrid slot for either two SIM cards or one SIM card and one SD card (up to 256GB).

The affordable choice

Available in two colors (Flash Silver and Mist Blue), realme 7 5G’s prices start at RM1,299 (8 + 128GB).

With all these mind blowing features, it is safe to say that realme 7 5G is among the affordable 5G smartphones available in the Malaysian market.
