Dimensity 1200 Finally Gets a Body

Realme never leaves a stone unturned to be the first one to do everything. They were the first to launch the cheapest 5G smartphone and now they’ll be the first to launch a Dimensity 1200 powered smartphone in India. The Realme X7 Max 5G has been at the top of twitter trends all day today and with good reason.

The Realme X7 Max is supposedly the first smartphone with Dimensity 1200 to launch outside of China. The phone, however, is not new and was launched recently in China as the Realme GT Neo in March 2021.

This chipset comes with a 6nm design process and has its CPU arranged in 1+3+4 orientation, comprising one peak-performance ARM Cortex-A78 core, three Cortex-A78 cores for high power output, and four Cortex-A55 cores for efficiency.

It’s worth noting that the Dimensity 1200’s architecture is similar to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC, which also uses three Cortex-A78 performance cores in addition to the Prime Cortex-X1 core and four efficiency cores. Now all we have to see is which one is the better processor.

Coming back to the Realme phone, besides the powerful Dimensity 1200 chipset, Realme X7 Max comes with up to 12GB of RAM. Meanwhile, the choices between 128GB and 256GB of UFS 3.1 make it a worthy choice in the flagship killer segment.

Size wise, the Realme X7 Max is quite identical to the Realme X7. Realme uses a dual-texture design for the X7 Max with a Realme logo inside a hologram for the back panel. It comes in three colors: Milky Way, Mercury Silver, and Asteroid Black. Realme uses polycarbonate for the back panel and the frame to keep the weight of the smartphone under check.

On the front of the smartphone, Realme uses a 6.43-inch Full HD+ display with a hole-punch cutout. The display has a 120Hz refresh rate for smoother visuals and a 360Hz touch sampling rate for lag-free touch response, especially while gaming.

In terms of cameras, the Realme X7 Max features a 64MP triple camera setup, putting it behind Realme’s mid-rangers with 108MP cameras. Besides the Sony IMX686 sensor for the primary camera, the phone features an 8MP ultrawide-angle camera and a 2MP macro camera.

When it comes to charging, Realme X7 Max features a 4500mAh battery. The phone also gets support for 50W fast charging using Realme’s SuperDart protocol. When it comes to software, the Realme X7 Max 5G runs on Android 11 withRealme UI 2.0 on top of it.

The Dimensity 1200 chipset is also expected to power upcoming phones such as POCO F3 GT as well as the OnePlus Nord CE. Exciting times ahead!
