The Realme 7i has a 6.5” 90 Hz display, however, unlike the Realme 7 this panel has 720p resolution. The lower resolution will help balance the change in chipset – from Helio G95 to a Snapdragon 662, whose Adreno 610 GPU isn’t quite as fast. The base configuration comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage, there’s a microSD card slot for easy expansion. If you need more, a 128GB option is available.

Another notable change in the 7i model is the battery – capacity remains at 5,000 mAh, however it charges at 18W (down from 30W). The camera department is nearly the same, including a 64 MP main cam and 8 MP ultra-wide, however, video capture is capped at 1080p at 30 fps.

The Realme 7 Pro Sun Kissed Leather is a special edition of the phone for the Diwali festival. The vegan leather on the back has a micro-grain texture and it is soft to the touch. The “Sun Kissed” moniker comes from the two-tone design – most of the back is in a light gray color except for the strip of orange on left. The Realme logo is CNC machined and has a metallic finish.
