Realme X7 Max 5G was launched in India on Monday (May 31) as the Oppo spin-off brand’s latest flagship offering in the country. This is notably the third phone in the Realme X7 series after the Realme X7 and Realme X7 Pro. Realme also launched the new Realme Smart TV 4K in 50- and 43-inch screen sizes alongside the Realme X7 Max.
Realme X7 Max India price and availability
The Realme X7 Max starts at Rs 26,999 for the base variant with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage going up to Rs 29,999 for the top-end model with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage. The phone will go on sale for the first time on June 4 from Realme.com, Flipkart and mainline channels.
Realme X7 Max specs and features
The phone in question comes with a 6.43-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display with a fast 120Hz refresh rate (360Hz touch sampling rate) and hole punch cut-out for the selfie camera — this is 16MP with f/2.5 aperture. The screen can peak 1,000nits of brightness though Realme does not mention if it supports any HDR format. There is also no word on the kind of screen protection it is using on the Realme X7 Max. For biometrics, the phone has an optical in-display fingerprint scanner.
Under the hood, the Realme X7 Max has a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC that’s claimed to be 22 percent faster and 25 percent more power efficient than the Dimensity 1000 Plus seen inside the Realme X7 Pro. Both chipsets pack the same Mali-G77 GPU though. Realme is using fast UFS 3.1 storage (up to 256GB) in the Realme X7 Max which is an improvement over UFS 2.2 seen inside the Realme X7 Pro and Realme X7. There is no expandable storage.
The Realme X7 Max also has an upgraded stainless steel vapour cooling system which is said to be an improvement over the copper-based vapour cooling system seen inside the Realme X7 Pro.
The phone runs Android 11-based Realme UI 2.0 software and is backed by a 4,500mAh battery with 50W fast charging support (compliant charger in the box). It comes with dual stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos and Hi-Res support while also retaining the headphone jack. Connectivity options include NFC, Wi-Fi 6 and 5G (N1/N28A/N40/N41/N77/N78/N79).
For photography, the phone has a three-camera setup on the rear with a 64MP (Sony IMX682 sensor) main, 8MP ultra-wide-angle and another 2MP macro shooter.
The Realme X7 Max design seems to be a cross between the Realme X7 Pro and Realme 8 Pro with a combination of both matte and glossy elements — and a sizeable “Dare to Leap” slogan thrown in. The phone is made entirely out of plastic and Realme is really touting its slim (8.4mm) and light (179 gram) profile which is impressive considering all the powerful hardware inside it. This is also the first Realme phone in its class to have an official IP rating — this is IPX4.
