If you’re interested in a review of the Realme 7 5G – which it’s worth noting sport notably different hardware to the standard Realme 7 (from its processor to its cameras), we’ll have one read for you in the next week or so.

When and where is the Realme 7 Series available?

Realme launched the Realme 7 and 7 Pro on 3 September in India, with the UK and European launch following on 7 October. Both phones are now on sale.

The third member of the Realme 7 family – the Realme 7 5G – featured as part of Realme’s Real Deal 5G livestream event on 19 November and is available to pre-order now, with availability from 27 November.

How much do the Realme 7, Realme 7 Pro and Realme 7 5G cost?

In the UK, the Realme 7 starts from £179, while the 7 Pro is a little more at £279. Both phones are available in a choice of white or blue from Realme and Amazon. The Realme 7 5G lands the title of Europe’s most affordable 5G phone, coming in at £279, undercutting the company’s already-affordable Realme X50 5G (£299).

While the Realme 7 Pro is simpler, with just one SKU available:

  • 8GB RAM + 128GB storage – £279

The Realme 7 5G also comes in a single SKU:

  • 6GB RAM + 128GB – £279

The Realme 6 and 6 Pro cost £219 and £299 when they hit the UK market, so it’s an encouraging sign that Realme has actually managed to reduce prices from those models.

All this said, fin the short-term, Realme is offering a wealth of impressive Black Friday discounts which you can peruse on its Amazon store page.

As for the 7 series specifically, the Realme 7 Pro will be available for £269 (rather than £279) from 24 November, while the latest Realme 7 5G will cost just £229 from 27 November, with all of the company’s Black Friday discounts ending on 30 November.

What are the Realme 7’s specs and features?

Aside from a bigger battery and near-enough the same camera as the 7 Pro, the main talking point has to be MediaTek’s Helio G95 chipset. The Realme 7 is the first phone to debut this silicon and brings some promising affordable gaming performance to the table.

What are the Realme 7 Pro’s specs and features?

Oddly, Realme chose to drop the high refresh-rate display when moving from the 6 Pro to the 7 Pro, in exchange for an upgrade from LCD to OLED, a change apparently informed by user feedback. The Pro’s display is also fractionally smaller, while the battery is 500mAh smaller than the 7’s too – but elsewhere it’s a clear upgrade, with better cameras, faster charging, and a Qualcomm processor.
