Realme X7 Pro Extreme Edition specifications are out
The most visible difference to the Realme X7 Pro Extreme Edition, when compared to the standard variant, is the display. Instead of the 6.5-inch 1080p AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate on the X7 Pro, the Extreme Edition gets a 6.5-inch 1080p AMOLED display with 90Hz refresh rate and curved edges. It has a rated peak brightness of 1200 nits and an in-display fingerprint sensor. The touch sampling rate is kept at 360Hz.
The chipset remains the same, i.e. it uses the same Dimensity 1000 Plus chipset from the standard Realme X7 Pro. The phone relies on LPDDR4X RAM and UFS 2.1 storage. Realme is shipping the phone with Realme UI 2.0 based on Android 11.
The battery capacity remains the same at 4500mAh unit and it supports the standard 65W fast charging solution. Realme says that you can do a full charge in 35 minutes. Sadly, there’s no support for wireless charging on this one.
The camera configuration on the X7 Pro Extreme Edition remains unchanged. The main camera relies on a 64-megapixel primary sensor and is accompanied by an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera. The third camera is a macro camera with a focal length of 4cm. The selfie camera is using a 32-megapixel sensor.
If this phone makes it to global markets, it might face some competition from a few upcoming smartphones. Poco is working on a Dimensity 1200-powered gaming phone whereas the OnePlus Nord 2 is also speculated to come with a Dimensity 1200 chip later this year.
