This is the unboxing and first hands-on for the brand new Realme X7 Pro.
The box comes in this nice silver shade instead of Realme's typical bright yellow packaging that we've become all too familiar with over the years.
Open up the lid, and you'll find a slim box with the phone's official tag line: 'Uncover the Xtra-Ordinary Speed. The E seems to be missing from the Xtra, but pretty sure that's been done on purpose.
Inside the box, you get all the paperwork like the Safety and QuickStart guides
Underneath that, there's the phone itself in all its shiny glory.There's also a TPU case in the box that offers nice enough build quality
Anyway, let's get this plastic off the phone, so we can check out the design. We've been sent the 'Fantasy' colour variant, and it says Dare to Leap on the back in big, bold letters. The colours shift and produce beautiful patterns as light reflects off its frosted matte glass rear surface. It looks absolutely fantastic, and we haven't quite seen anything like it with that massive logo.
Every corner of the phone looks polished, and there's some nice attention to detail, like the yellow accent on the power button. There's also a split volume rocker on the left-hand side. Down here at the bottom of the phone you'll notice a dual SIM card slot, USB Type-C port and the loudspeaker. You do get dual stereo speakers over here, and yes, Dolby Atmos is included in the software department for audio enhancement.
Now, let's boot up the phone and keep it aside for now, and see what else we get in the box.
There's a 65W Superdart charging brick, a USB Type-A to USB Type-C charging cable and a 3.5mm audio jack adaptor as there's no headphone jack on the phone. There's a SIM Ejector tool available here as well.
Now, let's go back to the phone and get it set up!
This is it! The Realme X7 Pro, with a large 6.55-inch Super AMOLED display that supports 120Hz refresh rate! The 120Hz refresh rate means that the screen can present 120 frames per second. Whether it is swiping the screen to browse information, playing games, or enjoying high frame rate video, it is buttery smooth all the way.
Sadly, the phone doesn't come with Android 11 out of the box, and instead, you get Android 10 at hand, with Realme UI running on top. But don't worry, the company says the latest Realme UI 2.0 will be rolling out soon enough.
On the back, there's a quad-camera setup, with an 8MP ultrawide sensor, a 2MP Black & White Portrait Lens, a 2MP Marco camera, and a primary 64MP Sony IMX 686 sensor.
There's also a Vapor Cooling System available here that reduces the core temperature to as low as 10°C, allowing you to flash charge while gaming comfortably.
On the front, there's a 32MP punch-hole selfie camera that offers a flashy animation when turned on.
Priced at ₹29,999 for this lone 8GB RAM+128GB storage model, the Realme X7 Pro gets powered by the latest MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ 5G chipset and a 4,500mAh battery. On paper, it seems like a very capable smartphone, but well reserve the final verdict for our upcoming in-depth full review of the Realme X7 Pro, right here on editorji. Stay Tuned!
