The latest flagship from Realme features a 6.7″ AMOLED screen with a high refresh rate of 120Hz and a 360Hz touch sampling rate. The display has a 100 percent DCI-P3 color gamut along with Full HD+ resolution. The brand has come up with its own X7 display driver chip that ensures optimal performance of the display and power consumption, coming to the bezels, they are ultra-thin and are just 1.48mm on the sides and 2.37mm on the bottom.

The device has a 50MP ultrawide camera with a 150-degree field of view and a 2MP macro sensor. The 16MP selfie shooter is integrated within a central punch hole setup.
Coming to the hardware, the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen1 chip has been powered with an Adreno 730 GPU that works perfectly with the X7 chip to offer the best touch responsiveness and appropriate refresh rate selection. The X7 has the capacity to artificially extend the frame rate from 30fps to 120fps while gaming and from 60fps to 120fps in other situations.
The device arrives with a rather distinctive design dubbed ‘Travel Trunk.’ The frame is a metallic one while the rear is made from vegan leather, a much more premium offering in comparison to plastic.

The latest flagship from Realme is perfect for gamers and other users who want an all-rounder in their smartphones.
