Design & Construction
Inspired by the mirror space in nature, the Realme 7 flaunts a gorgeous reflective design called “Mirror Design” on its rear. The brand used AG processing with classic CD textures to make the phone look more premium. The back design is only interrupted by the rear camera setup and minimal Realme branding–all located on the left side. Users can get the Realme 7 in two colorways: the professional-looking Mist Blue and the classic style Mist White.
The Realme 7, along with the 7 Pro, is one of the firsts smartphones in the world to receive the TÜV Rheinland Smartphone Reliability Verification.
