realme 7i launches with Snapdragon 662 and 90Hz display

Marginal improvements over the realme 6i



realme has officially taken the wraps off its latest entry-level device, the realme 7i. The launch of the device comes after realme launched the 7 series in India.

realme 7i is more than a substantive upgrade to the realme 6i, which launched six months ago. The biggest update to realme 7i is the chipset. It now touts a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662, although it isn’t clear if this chipset offers improvements over its predecessor’s MediaTek Helio G80.

Another major improvement of the realme 7i over the 6i is its display. This time, realme put a 90Hz display on its entry-level device. However, the resolution is still the same at HD+. This is realme 7i’s differentiating feature between its regular and Pro variant, considering that both have FHD+ resolution.

realme 7i also has a different rear camera arrangement. The rear cameras are a combination of 64MP wide + 8MP ultra-wide + 2MP monochrome + 2MP depth sensor. The 64MP primary camera is a big upgrade over the 6i’s 48MP. However, it remains to be seen if the bigger resolution offers better images for the 7i.

The selfie camera also now resides inside a display cut-out. Whereas in the realme 6i, the selfie camera resides in a waterdrop notch.

Beyond these improvements, every other spec from the realme 6i remains unchanged. The selfie camera remains at 16MP. The rear fingerprint sensor also remains unchanged. As for battery capacity, it still has the same 5,000 mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging.

And as with the 6i, the realme 7i comes with dual SIM and microSD card support. The trusty headphone jack and USB-C port is also carried over.

Pricing and availability

realme 7i will come in two color configuration: Aurora Green and Polar Blue. Both configuration comes with Android 10, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage out of the box. It is available to purchase now in Indonesia for IDR 3,099,000 (USD 205).

Availability on other markets have yet to be confirmed. However, it should come sooner than later along with realme 7 and 7 Pro in key markets.

Apple’s A14 chip is slower than Snapdragon 865

According to leaked benchmarking test



This week, Apple officially unveiled the A14 Bionic chipset. The next-generation processor will reportedly go up against the processors of its competitors including the upcoming Snapdragon 875. Though Apple hypes up the processor’s new Neural Engine, we don’t know how it will perform against the industry yet. However, according to a leaked benchmarking test, Apple’s A14 chip is slower than Snapdragon 865.

Leaked by Ice Universe, the unannounced iPhone 12 Pro Max supposedly scored 572333 on AnTutu’s popular benchmarking software. In comparison, the Snapdragon 865-powered Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra scored a towering 646730 above the leaked iPhone. For another comparison, the Snapdragon 865 Plus-powered ASUS ROG Phone 3 scores 629245 — still notches above the iPhone 12 Pro Max.

According to the leaker, the recently announced chipset likely focuses on power usage efficiency, rather than overall performance. The chip boasts numerous improvements in artificial intelligence features.

Regardless, Apple has not officially announced the iPhone 12 series yet. The recently concluded Time Flies event unveiled new iPads and the Apple Watch Series 6. Despite the missing iPhones, the company will still reportedly release the new series sometime in the fourth quarter.

However, if you’re looking for a performance booster, the iPhone 12 might not offer what you’re looking for — that is, if the leak will prove true.
