realme 7i launches in PH, 64MP camera and 90Hz display for PhP 11,990

Just a few weeks after the launch of the realme 7 and 7 Pro, the realme 7i is now making its way onto the Philippine market. Though it is the runt of the realme 7 series, the 7i still packs impressive specifications such as a 64MP f/1.8 main camera and a 90Hz display.

The realme 7i has a 6.5-inch 1600 x 720 IPS display running at an above-average 90Hz refresh rate. It ditches the notch in lieu of a punch-hole for its 16MP f/2.1 Sony IMX IMX471-powered front-facing camera.

At the back is a two-tone affair available in Polar Blue and Aurora Green. The rear also houses its fingerprint scanner and quad cameras composed of a 64MP f/1.8 main shooter, an 8MP f/2.3 ultrawide, a 2MP f/2.4 macro, and a 2MP f/2.4 mono.

Inside its shiny exterior is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. A 5,000mAh battery powers the whole device that can be charged via an 18W connection thanks to its USB Type-C port at the bottom.
