Realme 7 5G is confirmed to make its global debut on November 19 and is slated to be the fourth smartphone in the Realme 7 series. The lineup consists of the Realme 7, Realme 7 Pro and Realme 7i that were launched between September and October in India. While the key specifications of the Realme 7 5G are kept under wraps for now, there have been rumours that it could be a rebranded Realme V5 made for the global market.
As per a tweet by the official Realme UK Twitter handle, Realme 7 5G is scheduled to launch on November 19 at 10 AM GMT (3:30 PM IST) and the event will be live-streamed on YouTube, Twitter and Facebook.
With this announcement, the company has also released a teaser of the phone that reveals that the Realme 7 5G has a punch-hole cutout on the top-left corner and side-mounted fingerprint sensor that doubles up as a power button.
A report by Smartprix also indicates that the Realme 7 5G could launch in India soon. The report states that the Realme 7 5G will likely launch in India sometime in December.
