Realme 7 and 7 Pro UK Release Date, Price & Specs


Only six months on from the launch of the Realme 6 Series, the company has released the Realme 7 and Realme 7 Pro, and they’re both on sale now.

On the surface, these new handsets look like incremental upgrades overall, pulling more premium features from the company’s most capable devices and swapping out select pieces of hardware for higher quality alternatives. Are the improvements meaningful enough to warrant upgrading?

We’ve already reviewed both phones, so read our Realme 7 review or 7 Pro review to find out what we think of the new phones, or read on for a summary of the specs, price, and more. 

When and where is the Realme 7 Series available?

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

How much do the Realme 7 and Realme 7 Pro 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.

Here’s how the Realme 7 prices break down with specs:

4GB RAM + 64GB storage – £179
6GB RAM + 64GB storage – £199
8GB RAM + 128GB storage – £239

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

8GB RAM + 128GB storage – £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.

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.
