realme 7 5G with realme Buds Q

At launch, the Realme 7 5G was the cheapest 5G phone available in Australia at just $499. It was soon eclipsed by the $399 OPPO A54 5G, but a new price drop and bonus gift have brought Realme's offering right back in line.

When we reviewed the Realme 7 5G back in February, we were impressed with its stunning display and capable camera and thought it was great value for the price. Now that price has been dropped to $399, it's even more appealing.

Here's a breakdown of the key features:

  • 6.5-inch FHD+ display with a 120Hz screen refresh rate
  • Quad-lens rear camera (48MP main lens, 8MP ultrawide, 2MP macro and black and white portrait lens) and 16MP selfie camera
  • Dimensity 800U 5G chipset
  • 8GB RAM
  • 128GB internal storage
  • Dual-SIM support (or 1 x SIM and 1 x MicroSD card)
  • 5,000mAh battery with 30W Dart Charge (0-100% in 65 minutes)

Additionally, they've thrown in a pair of Realme Buds Q wireless earphones (valued at $179), bringing the total value of the Realme 7 5G sale bundle to $578. Having tested the Realme Buds Q personally, I can confirm that they're pretty good true wireless earbuds for the price. There's no active noise cancelling, and they do feel a little on the cheap size, but in terms of sound quality, battery life and comfort, they get full marks.

The promotion, which is apparently to celebrate the partnership of Realme and the upcoming Fast & Furious flick, F9 (weird, but OK), runs until June 30 at all the usual suspects - Kogan, Amazon, Catch, Bing Lee, Mobileciti and more.

The Realme 7 5G isn't available on a plan through any Aussie telcos, so if you're keen to jump on this deal, you'll need to pair it with a SIM-only plan. Here are the most popular BYO-device postpaid and prepaid plans according to WhistleOut's comparison engine.
