UPDATE (August 25th, 2020):
Realme has revealed Realme X7 series product images on its official Weibo account. The phone has a tri-color gradient finish which is being referred to as "C Colour" or "Special Gradient". There is "Realme" branding on the side along with the "Dare to Leap" text in bold.
This is undoubtedly an odd design choice but as per Xianghai Sire, Design Director at Realme, "Trends are not just style, but a way of embracing multiculturalism". It took the team about 8 months to develop the color and approximately 400 hours to color proof.

Realme has officially announced the launch date for its next smartphone series. The Realme X7 series will be unveiled on September 1st at an online-event in China. It has even teased a couple of features suggesting that it will be a premium smartphone with modern high-end features.
The series will have two smartphone models named Realme X7 and Realme X7 Pro. There will be a 120Hz AMOLED display panel which will be a first for the company. All currently available 120Hz Realme phones come with an LCD panel. The product renders on the teaser poster suggest a bezel-less design or at least really slim bezels on all four sides. It will have a punch-hole display for sure with a single selfie camera.
The second high-end Realme X7 feature is support for 5G. It is unknown whether there will be a mid-range 5G processor or a flagship 5G processor. It is the choice of processor that will play a crucial role in its pricing as well as the phones that it will be stacked up against. Some speculations also suggest 65W fast charging support on these smartphones.
This is pretty much what is known about the Realme X7 series for now. The launch event is about a couple of weeks away and we can expect to see more teasers and even leaks. Either way, we will keep you updated on all the developments.
