realme is bringing a ton of phones to Europe for every need
- realme has confirmed that a variety of phones are coming to Europe.
- It confirmed that the realme X7 range and realme 7 series is coming.
- It also said that the realme V3 and V5 budget 5G phones will arrive in the region.
realme has just held its IFA 2020 briefing, and it confirmed that it’s bringing a number of products to Europe. The firm revealed that it’s bringing a few smart home products and audio accessories to the region, but it also listed a number of smartphones too.
Probably the biggest news is that the firm’s recently announced realme X7 series (seen above) is leaving China and will be available in Europe in “Q4 2020.” The realme X7 and X7 Pro both pack OLED screens, 65W charging, 5G capabilities (with 5G+5G dual SIM support), 64MP quad rear cameras (plus an 8MP ultra-wide camera and two 2MP sensors), and 32MP selfie shooters in a punch-hole cutout.
Realme’s Pro model earns its moniker by virtue of a number of added extras, starting with a 120Hz refresh rate, a 4,500mAh battery, and a MediaTek Dimensity 1000 Plus flagship chipset. Meanwhile, the realme X7 offers a 60Hz panel, a 4,300mAh battery, and a less impressive Dimensity 800U processor.
There’s no pricing information or availability just yet beyond the Q4 window. Speaking of Q4, realme noted that its newly announced budget 5G phones, the realme V3 and realme V5, would also be launching in Europe during this quarter.
Nevertheless, the realme V3 and V5 (seen above) are both powered by budget-focused Dimensity 720 processors. The two phones also share 5,000mAh batteries, but that’s about all they have in common with each other. Otherwise, the V5 is clearly the more impressive device, packing a 90Hz refresh rate and FHD+ resolution, 30W charging, a quad rear camera setup (48MP, 8MP ultra-wide, 2MP macro, 2MP depth), and a 16MP selfie camera in a punch-hole.
Realme’s V3 delivers a standard 60Hz refresh rate with HD+ resolution, 18W charging, a triple rear camera (13MP+2MP+2MP), and an 8MP snapper in a punch-hole cutout.
The brand didn’t reveal pricing or availability for these phones either, but the realme V3 starts at just 999 yuan in China (~$146). So even a ~$50 premium in Europe would still make it a reasonably priced 5G phone.
Finally, realme also confirmed that it’s Narzo 20 series was coming in the next few months (ostensibly in general rather than specifically to Europe) and that its realme 7 series was coming to Europe “soon.” The latter just launched in India, and you can check out our full rundown of specs, features, and availability.
