In relation to delivering nice worth at each degree, few can do it higher than Realme presently. This extends to flagship killing presents, as nicely, the place the Realme GT line has been gathering lots of consideration currently. Significantly the Realme GT 5G, which presents a Snapdragon 888 chipset and 120Hz Tremendous AMOLED panel on a finances, amongst different issues.
Spicing issues up additional and in an final quest to deliver the utmost option to the client, Realme additionally created the Realme GT Neo. That’s what we now have on the workplace at this time. To be extra exact – our evaluation unit is the Realme X7 Max 5G, which is basically the identical gadget, as it’s already being bought in India. For now, the GT Neo is a China-exclusive.
What Realme did is basically take the Realme GT and swap out the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset for a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 one. The latter is presently the highest canine within the Dimensity lineup and isn’t a very widespread chip. The truth is, that is the primary time we’re seeing the Dimensity 1200.
Realme X7 Max 5G specs at a look:
- Physique: 158.5×73.3×8.4mm, 179g; Glass entrance, plastic body, plastic again; Splash resistant.
- Show: 6.43″ Tremendous AMOLED, 120Hz, 1000 nits (peak), 1080x2400px decision, 20:9 side ratio, 409ppi.
- Chipset: MediaTek MT6893 Dimensity 1200 5G (6 nm): Octa-core (1×3.0 GHz Cortex-A78 & 3×2.6 GHz Cortex-A78 & 4×2.0 GHz Cortex-A55); Mali-G77 MC9.
- Reminiscence: 128GB 8GB RAM, 256GB 12GB RAM; UFS 3.1.
- OS/Software program: Android 11, Realme UI 2.0.
- Rear digicam: Large (essential): 64 MP, f/1.8, 26mm, 1/1.73″, 0.8µm, PDAF; Ultra wide angle: 8 MP, f/2.3, 16mm, 119-degree, 1/4.0″, 1.12µm; Macro: 2 MP, f / 2.4.

Past this chipset swap, the X7 Max / GT Neo is just about an identical to the vanilla Realme GT. You get the identical 6.43-inch, 120Hz, Tremendous AMOLED show, in addition to an an identical digicam setup, based mostly on a 64MP essential got here, with an 8MP ultrawide, 2MP macro cam and a 16MP selfie. There are some minor variations, as nicely, largely associated to the marginally totally different function units of the 2 chips.
As an illustration, the Realme X7 Max 5G is capped at 50W of quick charging on its 4,500 mAh battery, as an alternative of the 65W the vanilla Realme GT will get. The Dimensity 1200 is provided with Bluetooth 5.1, as an alternative of the 5.2 modem on the common mannequin. Past that, nevertheless, the Dimensity manages to ship just about each function, together with 5G connectivity and DSP capabilities.
The truth is, the adoption of the MediaTek chip may even be behind an odd distinction in excessive refresh fee dealing with, which we noticed on the Realme X7 Max 5G, in comparison with different current Realme telephones. However, we’ll get to that within the efficiency part of the evaluation, which can doubtless be probably the most attention-grabbing bit general, seeing how the Dimensity 1200 is form of the highlight of the expertise.
Earlier than we transfer on additional with the evaluation, we must always level out, as soon as extra, that although just about all of our findings will apply to the Realme GT Neo, as nicely, we’re basing our evaluation on a Realme X7 Max 5G unit.
Additionally, wanting on the two specs sheets intimately reveals that the X7 Max 5G formally advertises just a few extras its Chinese language counterpart lacks, or at the very least doesn’t formally promote. These embrace splash resistance, Dragontrail Glass on the entrance for defense, in addition to 2.5W reverse charging assist.
Lastly, to the perfect of our data, there isn’t any 6GB RAM model of the Realme X7 Max 5G accessible, whereas the Realme GT Neo does supply that in its base tier.
The Realme X7 Max 5G kicks it off with 8GB of RAM and goes as much as 12GB. That is what we now have in our evaluation unit, alongside 256GB of non-expandable UFS 3.1 storage.
Our Realme X7 Max 5G unit got here in a pleasant, thick two-piece silver field. By way of equipment, you get a charger and USB Kind-A to Kind-C cable, in addition to a pleasant clear TPU case. An appreciated addition so you may rise up and operating immediately.
For quick charging, the X7 Max 5G has SuperDart. It maxes out at 50W on the facet of the telephone. Although, the included charger we received is able to as much as 65W of SuperDart charging. That is executed with a 10V@6.5A output. Clearly a non-standard output, which is why you want the provided USB cable to make it work because it has an additional pin for negotiation. With out the cable or the wall ward, you might be restricted to 10W charging, which the offered charger does additionally assist with a 5V@2A output.
Utilizing a proprietary cable is much from very best and we want Realme switches over to a Kind-C to Kind-C implementation of their charging, ideally with USB PD assist, sooner slightly than later.
It is usually value noting that in accordance with a number of the official Realme documentation we obtained, the X7 Max 5G would possibly ship with a 65W SuperDart charger in some locations. That’s of little precise sensible consequence to consumers, although.
