Say hello to the Realme X7 Max, the fresh new arrival at HQ. It’s a phone identical to the Realme GT Neo and very similar to the Realme GT 5G with the only differences being the chipset – Dimensity 1200 instead of Snapdragon 888 – and 50W charging instead of 65W.
The Realme GT Neo became official at the end of March in China, while the X7 Max came to India two months later.
Here’s the quick rundown of the Realme X7 Max/GT Neo – it has a 6.43-inch Super AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate, 6GB to 12GB of RAM to go along with the aforementioned Dimensity 1200 chip, a 4,500mAh battery and 50W charging.
Camera-wise you get an identical setup to the GT 5G – 64MP regular, 8MP ultrawide and 2MP macro cameras with a 16MP unit taking selfies on the opposite side.
The unit we received is slated as Asteroid Black, but it’s really more of a Blueish color. The rear panel is a single piece, but has a dual-toned finish – a glossy strip is flanked on either side by a textured surface. It’s nice to the touch and promotes better handling without a case.
The phone runs fast and smooth, which is to be expected given its stellar hardware. The fingerprint scanner works zippy as well.
Now if we had to point to a fault with the Realme X7 Max it would be that the display is slightly dim, mostly in bright sunny conditions (which is the norm at HQ at this time of year).
